so many paths


last night, arianne and i met up with my cousin paige for some coffee and key lime pie. we had a great time staying up way too late and talking about life and choices and the way people sometimes let their lives live them rather than the other way around.

one of the biggest things that i left with - and often forget much too easily - is that no matter what your situation, you always have options ... often times it's just a matter of broadening your perception of what's possible. to paraphrase ani difranco - if it's beyond your peripheral vision, you might want to turn your head.

here's wishing you a fantastic weekend, everyone.

Amen. I've been thrown a few doozies in my lifetime so far, and if there's one thing I've learned it's that you have to choose your own adventure. You can wallow in self-pity, or blame others for not living the life you want to, but at the end of the day it's all about the decisions you have made and will make.

Fabulous! I have always been the girl that says, "Don't like it? Change it!!"
Its wonderful when someone says that to you, when you feel like the walls are closing in.
There is always a way out, sometimes
it just not the easiest way!

Yes, yes, yes, it's so right now. How did you know? We all can take responsibility and create the situations we need and want rather than those we don't. Start livin'.
