Expanding Your Horizon

A mind that is stretched by a new experience can never go back to it’s old dimension.
Oliver Wendell Holme

We hear and read daily about how the world is changing but, in reality, it is we who are changing. Change is not new. Down through the millennia, it has always been with us.

Change doesn’t come without or from what’s in the drinking water; it comes from within when a brave soul is willing to challenge the status quo, or sees a new idea or application no one saw before, or who can’t suffer one more indignation in silence any longer.

Ever curious, they never stop looking for innovative ways to grow and improve their lives and circumstances and those of others. Pessimism, irony and negativity have no place in their world view.

Life is divided into three terms, wrote the poet William Wordsworth, that which was, which is, and which will be. Let us learn from the past to profit by the present, and from the present, to live better in the future.

Life is complicated. Deciding to start down a new road isn’t easy. One of hardest things in life is to know is which new bridge to cross and which to burn down behind you. In the final analysis, you are on your own.

Expanding your horizon, living life on your own terms, is all about refreshing your spirit, digging down into the furtherest, deepest corner of your heart and following what your heart tells you, staying connected to the real you and your own unique special brand of magic.

Not surprisingly, the moment you do that, you immediately start growing again.

We have entered a new era in our society. It isn’t for the doubters and naysayers. It’s for the adventurous, fresh thinkers and big hearts.

This is not for everyone, but if you find this resonating, I challenge you to dare to dream again, to push yourself to do more, experience more, and tap once again into your greatness. You already have all the tools you need. Just go out and do it.


Stay safe. Stay strong. Stay engaged. Thank you for reading me.
