A Star, a Vessel, and a Rudder
Ancient mariners navigated the seas in search of many things. Some voyages were short, others long. Every journey started with a goal and required preparation. Most encountered unforeseen challenges, some minor and others catastrophic. Rewards included treasure, personal growth, shareable knowledge and experience.
A star, a vessel, and a rudder is a story about you and the adventure you chose to undertake in life.
A STAR IS YOUR GOAL.
It illuminates, may twinkle or shine bright, and will help you navigate. From time to time, your star might be hidden from view by clouds but it is still there.
A VESSEL IS YOU; YOUR BODY, MIND, AND SPIRIT.
Preparation for any journey may involve learning, physical improvement, and reaffirmation of your beliefs. Outfitting your vessel with the right tools and supplies will help you along the way.
A RUDDER IS YOUR EXPERIENCE.
Through your wisdom, knowledge of self, and awareness you make decisions about the best path to take and how to avoid unnecessary risk.
Every journey involves some amount of adventure. I have heard adventure defined as something that will permanently change you in some way. Every journey has rewards, as the simple act of undertaking it will result in experience.
LIFE ITSELF IS JOURNEY. PICK A STAR, PREPARE YOUR VESSEL AND KEEP ONE HAND ON THE RUDDER.
