The Places You’ve Never Been
Too often, we think of the new year as an opportunity for a fresh start, but truth is, every day is a fresh start. Every moment, even. I saw this quote by American poet Mark Strand yesterday, and I really loved it. I like thinking of moments as places we go to, instead of experiences we have to live in. Because, hey, if you don’t like the moment you’re in, there’s always a new one to go to. (That is generally also my philosophy about Match.com dates.)
There’s so much more freedom (and less pressure!) if we think of ourselves as tourists designing fun life experiences, instead of the masterminds who have to find the meaning in them, don’t you think?
Also, who doesn’t love jumping in photos!
