Not All Who Wander Are Lost

Have you ever really thought about that?  

I had the opportunity to share a cocktail with a friend this weekend and in typical fashion, we day dreamed from the living room and vowed to keep each other on a path to hopefully discover our destinations someday.  Where or what that is, neither one of us knows, but the journey getting there will certainly be a blast. Or at least I hope so.

I think to wander off the beaten path is evidence of having the faith to follow one’s heart.  It takes a courageous soul to carve their own path, do their own thing, explore, try new things and satisfy their own curiosities.  It makes me believe that the value of life is in the journey, and not necessarily the destination.

Quilts, like friends, are different, colorful, fun, warm and comforting – we don’t all use the same pattern or follow the same path – but our creations, like our friendships, are all masterpieces.  They are unique and beautiful in their own way and we wouldn’t trade them for the world. At least I wouldn’t.

Believe in yourself and your ability to succeed no matter where your path takes you.  Follow your heart, stitch your own path and enjoy the journey. Even if it takes you to the living room with a friend, a girly drink and a plan swirling in your head.  You’re not lost. You’re just wandering down your own path and I think it’s awesome.

Not All Who Wander Are Lost.  Remember That. Happy Stitching, Karen
