Serendipity

Friday, May 18, 2012

A few days ago one of my favorite Ghost Hunters tweeted a quote (yes, I watch Ghost Hunters, yes, I have favorites, and yes, I follow them on twitter);

 "A man travels the world over in search of what he needs and returns home to find it." - George Moore

I instantly fell in love with this quote.  I think this statement essentially sums up what I've been coming to realize over the past few months.  I keep traveling around the world in search of something.  I'm not even sure what it is I'm looking for but every day I spend searching I begin to realize more and more that everything I need I already have.  Of course I've gain so much from traveling but I think the most important thing I've gotten from it all is an appreciation of home and family.

Not only was I amazed at how perfectly this quote spoke to me, but I was even more surprised to find out that George Moore was Irish.  Even better was that he spent ten years living in Dublin just a few blocks from where my apartment currently sits!  What a small amazing world we live in.
