feeling blessed

Before ever going on a trip, I always try to find a small quote, a mantra or a poem that I will read once or twice a day, as a reminder of the chance I have to discover this little floating rock we are living on.

This quote went to Chamonix with me and helped me to realize how lucky I am to be there, alive, healthy and able to climb up those splendid mountains.

«N’ayez jamais peur de la vie, n’ayez jamais peur de l’aventure, faites confiance au hasard, à la chance, à la destinée. Partez, allez conquérir d’autres espaces, d’autres espérances. Le reste vous sera donné de surcroît»
Henry de Monfreid

“Never be afraid of life, never be afraid of adventure, trust chance, luck, destiny. Go away, conquer other spaces, other hopes. And the rest will be given to you.”
