Whether we say it’s life or the universe or god, we’re each provided with opportunities to travel. A new year provides us with the awareness that it’s up to us to fill it with significance: being ingenious in the way only we can be, and to love in a way only we can love.
Not to travel, to stay where we are, would be a waste of a year to do something remarkable in:
‘when you expose yourself to the opportunities that scare you, you create something scarce, something others won’t do.’**
