Here are my words for Wednesday, February 8th — you might notice that today is Thursday the 9th. I am as of late — late. It seems the phrase a dollar short and a day late, sums up my current existance. Had I gotten farther down my list yesterday, I would have posted this quote:
Twenty years from now
You will be more disappointed
by the things you didn’t do
than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines
Sail away from the safe harbour
Catch the trade winds in your sails
EXPLORE. DREAM. DISCOVER
I think my current state of affairs is a direct result of my totally and whole heartedly believing these words, and others like them. So, maybe I can blame it all on Mark Twain.
As crazy as it is, I love my life — and I will continue to pile more on, understanding that occasionally I’ll hit the wall, go splat and then pick myself up and continue on.
Thanks to a dear friend in South Africa for sending me this quote, allowing me to read it again. It’s so true, and I so appreciate the friendships and connections that scrapbooking has blessed me with.
Sure hope you are having a "pick me up" and "get going" kind of day.
If not, take a deep breathe and know that you’ll get it back soon.
CHA was fabulous.
