Remember that when you leave this Earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received, only what you have given, a full heart enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. -St. Francis of Assisi

From my journal

Notes from books I have been reading and my own added thoughts

Butterfly Wings
From the butterflies struggles out of the cocoon comes Life, Beauty and the ability to fly.

The precipice is the moment when your current path ends and a new decision needs to be made. It's the place of choosing to stay in what you know is safe, or taking the leap forward into the unknown.

Making a change is saying that I accept nothing less than the dream. Staying on the ledge of what you know - because of fear of jumping - is cowardly.
Nothing will change unless you change it. 
Sadness overwhelms me at times with all I have lost, and all I will be leaving here.

I will have little ownership of property and with that small responsibilities. A lack of tow vehicle will allow me to live once more through my feet.

Jump and Grow Wings on the Way Down!
I now trust the Universe will help build my wings, and have me land in the perfect place.


  1. A ship is safe in harbor, but that's not what ships are for. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.

    If you find that this is not your path... plot a new course. For you are the Captain of your ship.

  2. I like the say "Nothing changes unles you change it"! We live by that.

  3. Teri- good luck on your new adventure- I retired from Wisc a year and a half ago- bought 34 RV and went to Fl- A great adventure- Now selling and moving on to sailboat and motorcycle adventure! steve

  4. I like your suggestion on my blog about renting a Class A. I've thought about doing that and after I'm settled in I think I'll do just that. Thanks.

  5. One of my favorite quotes is from the great bull rider Ty Murray..."You are never completely ready, sometimes it is just your turn"..It is your turn girl...give it a go!
