It Takes Courage…

Hi All,

I hope you’re all enjoying this holiday weekend however you’re spending it. I’ve unfortunately had an unremitting headache since last Tuesday, but I’ve still managed to have a wonderful weekend. I spent yesterday picking out a design for my mom’s dress for the upcoming wedding, then today celebrating the baptism of a good friends’ baby, and some social time at a Memorial Day party this evening.

I had to share this framed quote that I found on Etsy with all of you because it’s so apropos right now. In fact, yesterday my mom and I were talking together over lunch about this very thing….

e.e. cummings happens to be a favorite poet of mine, who I studied quite extensively in my college poetry classes–however, I somehow never knew this quote before today.

I’ve been wrestling with this very situation in my life right now of trying to figure out who I am meant to become, what my purpose is, and how I can achieve it. I have so many interests in my life–so many passions–and I’ve felt that so many of them were just pipe dreams that I could never make a reality. My amazing mom talked some sense into me yesterday and made me realize that I’m made to do some great things, and I just need to have a little faith, courage, and perseverance. It was a real eye-opener and really inspired me to rethink my goals in life. Aren’t moms the best?

Are any of you in a similar boat?
