Words for Wednesday: Savannah Wisdom

We have been in Savannah since Monday and while I wasn't planning to post during the trip, I had to get on the computer to sign in to work for a few minutes, so I sent Babe off to explore the train museum (his history loving heart has been very happy in Savannah) while I worked. I finished up quicker than I thought I would and he is still out exploring, so I thought I would share this little wisdom find with you all before we leave Savannah and head to Fort McAllister State Park for the rest of the week! 

We have been loving Savannah, there is so much to see and do and EAT (oh, the food)!! We have done and good bit to walk it off though and, while we were doing just that, I stumbled upon this little token of a sign and had to snap a picture!

So very, very true! There is so much that we hold on to that keeps up from truly being able to soar to our fullest! My word for 2015 was 'surrender' and so I had been trying to do just that this year; just let go, let it be and realize that there is not much I have to, or even need to, control. And so for 2016 I don't think I am going to really pick anything up! No huge New Year's resolution to feel the weight of sticking to. Instead I am going to continue to work on letting go of the things that hold me down {worry, doubts, fear...} and really just live. Live in the moment, cherish the day, breath it all in and repeat it again the next day if God grants me the chance to.

What about you? 
Anything you could do with putting down?

  1. I'm glad you enjoyed Savannah. I love it too. I live about 45 minutes away from downtown. It's so beautiful and historic. I love your word for 2015, surrender. That's a good message to keep in mind. Living in the moment is what I've been trying to stay mindful of as well. I just enjoy each and every day for what it has to offer. Happy New Year.

  3. Hi Melanie! It is Cait from Mortons On The Move. Glad you enjoyed Savannah - we wish we had more than one day to explore as well. Beautiful city.
    I love your quote and the idea of "surrendering." Living the fulltime RV life is quite an adjustment from "normal" living, and sometimes we really do get caught up in worry, doubts, fears, and the unknown. We are starting to get better at living in the moment and making the best of everything.
    So glad we met you guys! Also, we are in Orlando now! (Clermont, really) Are you around and available at all? It would be great to meet up - we are at the Orlando Thousand Trails until the 13th :)
