If I Had my Life to Live Over...

So much to share (including details of our awesome Bon Voyage Party!) - but for now I want to share something that my sister Chelsea shared with me...

If I had My Life to Live Over 
I’d dare to make more mistakes next time.

I’d relax, I would limber up.
I would be sillier than I have been this trip.
I would take fewer things seriously.
I would take more chances.
I would climb more mountains and swim more rivers.
I would eat more ice cream and less beans.
I would perhaps have more actual troubles but I would have fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I’m one of those people who live sensibly and sanely, hour after hour, day after day.  Oh, I’ve had my moments, and if I had to do it over again, I’d have more of them.  In fact I’d try to have nothing else.

Just moments, one after another, instead of living so many years ahead of each day.  I’ve been one of those persons who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a raincoat and a parachute.  

If I had to do it again, I would travel lighter than I have...

Those sentiments are worth reminding ourselves what life should be. Your departure is imminent and I'm sure you're both anxious to get underway. Fair winds and good sailing...
