A turn...

"Then, one day, I magically stumbled upon the best advice I’d ever heard. In a blog interview, photographer Stephanie Congdon Barnes said: 'You can have the life you want.' It was just the encouragement I needed. You can create the life you want. You can figure out what exactly that means to you, and instead of getting caught up in an imagined rat race, you can work hard, grow in your career, spend time with your family, ride your bike by the river, eat too much spaghetti, have friends over for wine and cheese, go on vacation and take funny photos… I suddenly felt like it was possible. I could carve out the life I wanted. Ten years later, I remember those beautiful words almost every day." Joanna Goddard from A Cup of JO

Sometimes life throws you curve balls and stresses and strains... and when you are far away and alone, you might feel like you can choose or do anything... and when you are near and surrounded by everyone you know and love you might try harder to appease and become the reality of the thoughts and ideas of those others around you.  But it is up to you to decide what is best for your own life, because you are the only ones that have to live it. Take advice that is good, consider the ideas and thoughts that are uncomfortable. Do not be afraid of what is to come if the numbers calculate right.

Be happy.
Be grateful.
Live a life of hope and happiness and above all, love.
