"Be brave. Take risks. Nothing can substitute experience."
Stretch and grow; use the wings.
It was a risk for me to even go to Melk. But I had a dream!
And the dream turned into a fairy tale right before my eyes. Met so many beautiful, beautiful souls in a magical place. Glowing!! To be part of that night was an honor.
The fairy tale was unexpected and a first for me.

Sometimes people worry a lot about ‘what could have happened, but didn’t’. Perhaps expecting that there are not going to be or should not be, difficulties.
At age 17, hitch-hiked across my country. I worked through Temporary Manpower in big cities, and had pay sent to general delivery of the next city I was visiting. The journey was not all smooth sailing because in one city was a bus strike and in another, a postal strike. But enjoyed the adventure and the opportunity to see the country. Met wonderful people everywhere.
Living on my own in high school was scary for other parents to accept. They worried that I might be a bad influence on their kids. I could take risks because no one tried to stop me and feeling more thankful today. It was a great experience, learning how to think for myself and being responsible for decisions.
(so many afterthoughts today lol!)
