Have you ever stood on a beach and gazed longingly off into the horizon? I have numerous times. This past Thanksgiving, my fiance, son, and I spend the weekend at the beach in Panama City. I took many walks during that weekend looking off into the horizon over the gulf. Why? It’s the perfect setting to think about life and reflect upon things. To me, it’s relaxing. Horizons are funny though. They are always changing. If you want to know how my horizons are changing check out my post titled: Expanding Horizons.
Change is good. It indicates growth which is something everyone needs. My growth this year is in what I plan on doing which is also laid out in that post titled Expanding Horizons. For those of you who have children, children are the perfect example of the growth I expect see in the horizons of life. Children check by the day getting bigger especially when the child is super young. It seems like yesterday my one year old was just a newborn at 6lbs while now he’s one year old and 20 lbs.
I could go back to the same beach and stare at the horizon and it wouldn’t be the same one I stared at last Thanksgiving. There might be a new boat on that horizon next time, or it might not have the colors it had before. But that gives me hope. It gives me hope that something new is always on its way to us. New experiences. New life. New love. New adventures.
Let us forever be looking off into the horizon for that something new!
