Estelea's Blog

French Mum, humanitarian, restless explorer and doer on sabbatical in Cebu (Philippines): one Attila in each arm, I am exploring the “toddlers safe” corners of the region, while trying to keep some room for Me.

20 years from now, said Mark Twain


.. you’ll be more disappointed by the things you did not do than by the ones you did.

So throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor.

Catch the trade winds in your sails.

Explore. Dream. Discover”.

Wishing you all an adventurous week…

      After all the rains and the winds of the week end, the sun had an amazing energizing effect. I took this picture on our little cruise back to Cebu. The people I love most were all sleeping beside me, made me so grateful and aware of all the shiny possibilities… Have a beautiful week my dear 🙂

    It’s a lovely quote FOS. It goes with two others that continue the theme:

    A ship in a harbour is safe, but this is not what a ship is built for. ~ Grace Hopper

    We should be ready to change our views at any time, and slough off prejudices, and live with an open and receptive mind. A sailor who sets the same sails all the time, without making changes when the wind changes, will never reach his harbour. ~ Henry George

      Thanks FOS, they are so perfect. Don’t be surprised if I give them more promo by using them in some future post.. 😉 The second one is talking to my heart, “to live with an open and receptive mind”. I could not set the same sails all the time, I need to break my routine even when I going to buy bread. The only thing I haven’t tried yet is to reach the place walking backwards 😉 Wishing you the warmest harbour, always 😉
