Wherever you fit in with the world… is supposed to be where you feel happiest, it’s not always where you are from, (sometimes it may be that way), but for everyone that’s home in the heart.

Sometimes it takes getting away from where you grow up to appreciate the good parts of the place you grew up.

No matter where you are from, it will always be a part of you, but it doesn’t mean you should stay there.

I find it amazing there are very old people here on the Isle of Portland who have almost never left the island, indeed a few who have never been off the island, yeah, never!

Take a moment to consider that, an island about 4 miles long by about 2 miles wide with a road connection to the mainland, and you spend your whole life there, never going over that road.
Imagine suppressing that curiosity to see what’s out there…all that time!


It’s not always about broadening your horizons, reaching your existing horizons is good, its growth.
Horizons are there to be reached for… that’s natural to us.

It’s not all visual horizons in life though is it, we all strive to do better, know more, learn new things, and yet some never even try, shame that really.
That is our greatest thing, to be able to think about it and act, grow in a way no other species does.

We are told we can’t do this, that and the other, too often by those who have no idea what you can do.
We are unique, our horizons are unique, our path of life is unique, only you know what is right for you.
We create our ow horizons.

The world really is your oyster, physically and otherwise!

So, where are you going? 🙂

Are those horizons yours?

    The sad fact about most people is that they are afraid to explore new horizons. They are satisfied with the comfort of where they are. I believe all of us are meant to explore the wholeness of our existence, but fear is our enemy. 🙂

    I'm back "home" after 3 years abroad I am over it already – 3 months record for me! People who don't travel don't get it – most people travel a bit and then settle down- I seem to be getting worse with age LOL

    Hey Walter, you are right there, what's to fear? :o)

    I'd bet that everyone at some points in life get a really good chance to explore new horizons, whether they take it or not is another matter, many won't, yet later in life wonder what could have been. ;o)

    Lissie, hope you had a good experience though, travelling is always good, upping sticks is a surefire way to grow, change.
    Are you happy to be "home2 now then?

    Thanks for the comments, glad I am not the only one who thinks it.

    I’m not sure what to say. I haven’t gotten out much, I’m definitely not as well-traveled as some people. And I can be pretty closed to new ideas.

    But what I’m doing now requires open-mindedness and a restraint from saying “no” so often that I do think one has to get ready to expand one’s horizons if one wants to do something similar.
