Dear Diary,

Yep, I am using this post as a diary entry. You're welcome. :P Well, with big changes in life I am forced to reflect, organize, prepare, and gather myself. I have pulled a few of my favorite quotes and am going to share what they mean to me. For some reason all my insecurities have suddenly all decided to demand my attention as I go back to school for a do-over.

“A year from now you will wish you had started today.” -Karen Lamb
I am living proof of this statement. Although my time frame is even longer. Try 4 years from now. So, yes... at some point you need to conquer what you need to do or else you will always be stuck here in this statement. Start today, stop procrastinating. Simple as that, right? One can hope.

“Never too old, never too bad, never too late, never too sick to start from scratch once again.” -Bikram Choudhury.
Although, I am going back and doing something I have already done once I still feel as though I am starting from scratch. It has been just over 4 1/2 years since I first attempted doing this. So, with time, experience, and hopefully some added maturity, I will be able to start from scratch.

“In a chronically leaking boat, energy devoted to changing vessels is more productive than energy devoted to patching leaks.” -Warren Buffett
This one, I am just going to let it speak for its self. I don't have words to describe it.

“Getting over a painful experience is much like crossing monkey bars. You have to let go at some point in order to move forward.” -C.S. Lewis
This one is about my recent failure of a relationship. Lately, it seems as if I can't escape it. Memories of him pop up everywhere which trigger more in depth thoughts about him, the past, and what ifs. I know I need to let go and even now, after some time I can't seem to let go. Part of me is holding on for some reason. I simply need to replace it. I am not saying replace it with another relationship but another friendship. Back in October I lost a man I loved but more importantly, my best friend.

Alright, enough with the negative and on with my more uplifting, keep moving quotes...
“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can’t accept not trying.” –Michael Jordan
"You never know if you don't try" Right? I am a firm believer in at least attempting things because I usually have nothing to loose and everything to gain. I much rather say yeah, I tried than wonder what if. Giving myself either the false hope of being the best out there and no one knows or giving myself a complex about how horribly something could have gone had I tried. Why not put the 'What ifs' to rest and get out there and do something?!

“You’re braver than you believe, and stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.” –A.A. Milne
A classic and something I have to tell myself, when in doubt.

Am I...

Worried, Scared, Nervous, Anxious, Hopeful, Excited, Desperate, Distressed, Intimidated, Panicky, Terrified, Energetic, Enthusiastic, Delighted, Apprehensive, Awkward, and SPARKLING?

YES!!! To all of the above.

The time is ticking away and quite rapidly if you ask me. Today was my last monday, tomorrow will be my last tuesday, and so on.



  1. Love it Meg! You'll do great, and it will be such a great experience for you. Can't wait to hear all about it.

  2. I had never heard some of those quotes before. Thanks for sharing.

    You'll do great, just apply that monkey bar thing ;)


Make my day... leave me a message. I hate to think I am just talking to hear myself talk. :P
