 2 things I learned about life from Star Trek

To BOLDLY go where no one has gone before....

These words ring out from the TV screen every single episode.  The original series of course had a slightly different word, but the truth remained - they were BOLDLY going somewhere.  They were BOLDLY going into the unknown and uncharted territory. 
This rings more true to me than EVER for 2015!  I am personally doing more things in the unknown than ever before and it is quite scary!  Have you been on a journey into the unknown for yourself?  How did you feel? 
One thing that takes me back to the sense of ADVENTURE in all of this is Star Trek.  One of my childhood favorites.  I had the pleasure to do a photo opp with Nichelle Nichols who played Uhura in the Original series.  I was SO excited to meet her in those brief seconds!  I felt as if she was a wise person who lived not only on the show but beyond that into the road she has walked and the things she may have faced.  I am so glad I made the effort and "trek" to go see her! :)   Seeing someone's heart as a WHOLE is a treasure.  How often do we really stop to enjoy the adventure and see the hearts of those we meet? 

Here are 2 things I learned about LIFE from Star Trek....

 You will meet the most unlikely of friends!  In the many adventures they encountered so many different people, species and aliens.   I found that in those adventures they found friendship, love and challenges within each scenario.  In your life, you too will have opportunities to meet people that seem like unlikely friends...but taking the time to get to know them - you can have a deeper understanding and connection to them AND yourself.   
(the joke in this image is that the starfleet officer and the Borg were getting along)  lol!!! 
 #2 - NEW worlds!

When you step out of your comfort zone you encounter a new world... a new challenge!  The atmosphere you step into could be easy or a bit harsh.  You could need a space suit or be ok breathing the air of this new space!  The point is to BOLDLY step out and embrace what is set before you to EXPLORE and let yourself learn and grow through the new environment.  You have what it get to EXPLORING!  Experience the awe and wonderment and all the emotions that come with it!
