Education – Continue to Learn

2018-10-08-Lvrtz_337

Have you heard of the online platform HIGHBROW? I recently discovered (though full disclosure, I have yet to register) this awesome way of learning something new each day. In just five minutes, with over 250 topics of interest, HIGHBROW offers members the opportunity to obtain new information in the amount of time it would take to drink a coffee or a tea in the morning.

I think now that life has slowed down just a bit, we will register and welcome the opportunity to dive into new ways of learning.  Side note, I don’t get any kickbacks from this online source, I just heard about it and think it is a fabulous way to continue learning!

Simple Travel Tip

2018-10-08-Lvrtz_345

Always pack a night light!

This simple, yet very practical tip saves us every time we travel. Whenever we are staying away from home for a night we are sure to pack a night light. The easy to pack, handy little night light, helps us find our way in a foreign place at night to get a glass of water or use the toilet safely. The children find comfort in a slightly illuminated room, making a strange place less intimidating.

Simple, but ever so helpful, the night light!

Quotes to Live By

I stumbled upon this beautiful, inspiring quote not long ago. May the words below teach us the power of persistence. What a wise father!

“After getting rejected by a bunch of colleges in the same week, my dad (who is a writer) said, “I was rejected by Stanford three times, and now my books are in their library. You’ve got to be better than them.” – Unknown

The Education of Time

2017-08-27-Botnl_088e

Here at More2Explore we have been discussing time a great deal. We have come to the realization that the best time to do anything is NOW.

NOW is the perfect time to work towards your life goals.

NOW it is essential to travel.

Never a better time than NOW to say “I’m sorry,” or “I love you,” or “You mean the world to me.”

NOW is the perfect chance to write the letters to those important people in your life.

NOW is the perfect time to let go of relationships that are no longer healthy.

NOW is ideal to tell your friends and family how you feel about them.

NOW is the perfect time to write the book (more on that to come).

And NOW should be the moment to appreciate all the little miracles that surround you each and every day.

The time is NOW.

“None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after-thought. Eat the delicious food. Walk in the sunshine. Jump in the ocean. Say the truth that you’re carrying in your heart like hidden treasure. Be silly. Be kind. Be weird. There’s no time for anything else.”
— Nanea Hoffman (I think)
