both Are true
Ships are built to sail. Ships need lighthouses that lead into harbors. Both of those statements are true.
For the last 10 or so years, one of my favorite quotes has been “Ships are safe in a harbor, but that is not what ships are built for.” I have a ship necklace that I wear to remind of that. To risk. Go for it. Dream. Believe. I love the idea of setting sail to new dreams and new adventures.
About 11 years ago, I watched a sunset over a peaceful harbor. I caught the moment with my camera and that memory hangs in my office. It is the picture above. It is a calm and safe harbor with a lighthouse that guides the ships in. What an analogy. Ships need safe harbors where they can rest, repair and refill. And, they need bright lighthouses to guide them when storms and fog set in.
My goal with every client is to be a safe harbor. A place where you heal. Feel safe. Rest. Learn. Grieve. Cry. Laugh. Feel valued. Then, when our time has come to an end, you will have what you need to set sail again. When that dream or adventure finds you needing, then the harbor of my office will be there when you need another rest.
