It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

I love genealogy research. Did the Ancestry DNA test a couple of years ago and found out my supposedly Norwegian great-grandfather on my mother's side was in fact ethnically Finnish. He belonged to a (now) recognized minority in Norway that had been looked down upon and stigmatized, so I guess that's why he kept it hidden. It opened up a whole new vista for me, complete with a fascinating culture and people I had been unaware of. Sad that I almost missed out on this knowledge.

I have early Pilgrim ancestors too, like you, and also Dutch ones who owned the land where Wall Street in Manhattan stands now. Wish it were still in the family. :)
