Several times in my career, I’ve talked with inner cities kids who live just a mile from an ocean or a Great Lake, but have never visited. I’m always stunned and saddened when I meet these students. I think, “How could you be so close to something so amazing, and never go?”
What if the same thing happen to all of us, in our own minds? Are there not wondrous places each of us can visit in our own minds and hearts that are but a “mile” away? Places of growth, power, confidence, or forgiveness that would astound us with their beauty and majesty, if we only had the courage and imagination to go?
Where is that place for you? Get a pen; draw a mental map of an Ocean that is just a mile away for you; name your Ocean; and go visit today.
