Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. Security does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than exposure. ~ Helen KellerThis picture turned up one day amongst the many interesting things my dad used to frame in his gallery with this quote by Helen Keller affixed below. I came across it again today and it reminded me of all the things that hold me back in my life because I’m afraid, or annoyed, or anxious – and the fact that I should make sure that I’m creating the life I’ve imagined, not simply existing in the one I’m dealt.
