Experience the Dawn
"We live from day to day and get as much joy out of experiencing as we can." -Shelley Duvall
When I safely return from a business trip, it is always a great homecoming for me. The act of coming home to family and friends is one of the greatest feelings you can experience.
When I take the overnight flights home, the pre-dawn light through my window is always amazing. The lense of a camera simply can not capture the wonder seen through one's own eye.
As I watch the fading darkness of night being crept upon by the morning light, my thoughts are of new beginnings. The type that each of us can have if only we take hold of the opportunity.
So many times we attempt to view the wonders of life through other means. We watch shows on television, we read books, magazines and marvel at the lives of others.
We say to ourselves that there are wonderful things out there for us. Yet we never take the steps to experience them. We are constantly looking through the lense of a camera, never viewing the splendor with our own eyes.
Yes, we can experience life through pictures and stories, but we can also experience a much fuller life if you make change. If we place ourselves in real moments, we will get to paint our lives in more vivid colors. Don't hold back from stepping forward and trying new things. Take on new challenges and experience a greater life.
“Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day. Such is the salutation to the dawn.” - Sanskrit Proverb
Experience the dawning of a new day in your life, experience a greater life.
Stay inspired my friends.
