Our calendar is filled with holidays and sometimes we tend to overlook some of the not so prominent ones which require us to shop for gifts or plan special meals. Columbus Day recognizes the bravery of a man who set out on a voyage into the unknown because he believed in a theory strong enough to risk his life to prove it. The New World would have eventually been discovered by someone else, but who knows how long it would have been before another would have set out into the vast ocean to explore the world.
He is known to have said, "You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore."
We too can never cross into bigger and better things without letting go of the familiar so we can enter into new horizons.
Have you experienced a new horizon in your life? Share your thoughts.
