joie de vivre-- a cheerful enjoyment of life & an exultation of spirit.

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


If there's one thing that these past few weeks have taught me, it's that you can never be certain what's around the bend. I've learned that life is about taking each day in stride. It's about having plans, but adapting to change. It's about finding a path that feels right, but not being afraid of opportunities that unexpectedly arrive. It's about taking risks and trying new things. It's about rising to the challenge, even when it terrifies you. It's about learning that failure only makes success taste that much sweeter. It's about living in the moment and not wishing a single minute away. It's about being determined and proud while remaining humble. It's about being confident and remaining strong enough in your convictions to not back down when put under pressure. It's about always knowing your voice and not being afraid to use it. And it's about understanding the lesson embedded in each day.

Delicious ambiguity. I love that.
