Explore. Dream. Discover

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover "
--Mark Twain 

Who says building sand castles is just for kiddo? (Puerto Galera)

Mark Twain's words are epic, tried and tested. I don't have to look far for testimony. Why should I when I have myself to prove them. Seems like some of my years were gone to waste sticking to routines. I am happy with what I had accomplished, but if I could bring back the time, I would opt for more adventures, hard roads,  build sand castles and devour every opportunity the good heaven will pour upon me.

And since my birthday is fast approaching (*couhg, ahem-ahem), I can feel the urge to do what I have to do. And why do I feel this creepy feeling of not wanting my birthday to come?

    First, I love this quote. Get out and dream something.

    Second, being weary of birthdays is natural. This is a great time for reflection.
