I learned so many life lessons this week! They started out as challenging experiences, but I’m trying to look at them from a different perspective.

Here we go!

The “don’t let people bring you down” part of this quote was a big one for me. A few jabs were thrown my way this week and I was very surprised because this normally doesn’t happen. So once the shock wore off, a little anger began to creep in. I thought of things I should’ve said or done, and in a moment of pure indulgence, I thought it would’ve felt really good to just do this:

I’ve always loved this quote. I didn’t realize it was an actual poem by Erin Hanson until last night. It reads…

On the breezes of the sky,
And you ask, “What if I fall?”
Oh but my darling,
What if you fly? 

Here’s to a week of taking beautiful chances. ♥
