Leave the Dock

Soon, my daughter will be leaving home to attend college.  Last night, she showed me a video clip from an overseas adventure sponsored by her university.  The students interviewed talked about life-changing experiences they had in places far off.  My daughter lit up as she shared her desire to study abroad for a semester.

It takes great courage to leave the dock and visit lands on distant continents.  There is so much to learn from other cultures.  My daughter caught the travel bug.  Her fever silences the voice inside her attempting to keep her from leaving her home port.

How about you?  Are you ready to venture outside your comfort zone?  Put those sails up and leave the dock.  Your journey begins with a decision. The world is waiting for you to discover it.
