Throughout my life I have made life-changing decisions based on not wanting to look back and say “if only ….”: emigrating to Australia as a 22 year-old with my husband of 18 months, not knowing anyone, not having a job and only having very little money; moving from Adelaide to Mount Gambier to start a business (unsuccessful as it turned out!); and more recently giving up work and buying a caravan so we can travel around this great country of ours. Too often I have heard people say they would do this or that when they retired, only to have ill health or even death intervene, so we are doing things now while we can.
I found this quote from Mark Twain which summed up our thoughts exactly. The photo is of sunset over Lake Argyle in Western Australia, one we took while on a sunset cruise on the lake. The font is Maphylla, I used special characters on the capitals.
