live your life

hawaii,maui,2009

what I want to say is that the past is the past,
and the present is what your life is,
and you are capable of choosing what that will be…

so come to the pond, or the river of your imagination,
or the harbor of your longing,
and put your lips to the world.

and live your life.
- mary oliver


Been thinking a lot about changing directions, but just need to get over the fear of getting out of my comfort zone. Easier said than done, right? Well, that's why I love quotes like this - it gives me a bit of push in the right direction.

Got this quote from Deb Schwedhelm's blog. She has such a lovely blog, filled with inspiring tidbits. I also love her lensbaby work and am tempted to try it out myself.

A very nice quiet picture for contemplating the thoughts that you have. Goes very well with what you're saying. Good luck on whatever decision you'll be making.

What a lovely quote. Changes are a little scary, but you always come out the better for them. A very restful image, Karleen. :)
