Fate Loves the Fearless

It was just a phrase in a magazine artiFate Loves the Fearless flying turtle snow globe Camryn Forrest Designs, Denver, Coloradocle, reading casually, waiting for my hair to be cut.

“Fate loves the fearless.”

I wish I could remember who said it and in what context, but I’ve lost the source.

The phrase stayed with me, reminding of some other words to live by, including “You miss every shot you don’t take, ” attributed to Wayne Gretsky.

Why a turtle? I don’t know: Perhaps the gentle sea turtle always appears to be flying and I took it one step farther, with a couple taking a leap of faith together, fearless and bold, holding on for the exciting ride ahead.

“Fate Loves the Fearless.” Ah, yes it does.

Long and Winding Road

Life’s like that: a series of twists and turns where you end up in an unexpected place.

Maybe it makes you laugh, maybe you feel frightened by what you cannot predict. Sometimes life takes you to a place you’ve never been before that feels like it’s home. Or perhaps you wander into a dead-end alley and have to figure out a new path, retracing steps and wondering “how did I get here?”

Like the bestLong Winding Road custom snow globe, Camryn Forrest Designs 2015 short stories, and maybe the best novels and best lives, often the journey has a long and winding road, one where you can’t see the beginning and the end along the way, but one that takes you exactly where you need to be. Or when you finally reach that spot that feels like home and you wonder: what took me so long to find this place? Not knowing … ah, keeps it interesting that way.

Or as the wise philosopher Buckaroo Bonzai said, “where ever you go, that’s where you’ll be.”
