Here we are, in the beginning of a new year. I love the inspiration I always feel at this time of year to make changes and to go off on new adventures. When thinking about the new explorations I'm embarking upon in my life, I like to reflect on this quote from T. S. Eliot, where he reminds us that many of the benefits of exploring are found in returning to where we started. It reminds me that exploring is not about doing, but about learning, reflecting, and growing.
“We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time.”
My hope for all of you this year is that your explorations will allow you to see your life in a new light.
