words to live by: terry mcmillan

"{the people} i find
to be the least happy
are those who don't accept
much responsibility
for what they do,
and instead,
are waiting for someone
to rescue them."

...here's to a new year,
of doing what we feel is right
& taking responsibility for living our best lives.

i believe that questing to live your right life is true happiness,
and this week i'll be pondering my intentions for 2011
with a sight on how i can live my life the best way for me.
i'll be reflecting on 2010...
the actions, thoughts & habits i'm proud of
and the ones i'd like to change in the new year.
the accomplishments i've achieved
and the ones i'm still working on
or need to refocus.

what do you think about & reflect on
as one year comes to a close
and a new one begins?


  1. This quote is so true. You only have your own life and so often we pass it off to others. Once you take responsibility for yourself you can live.

    I could stop complaining about college classes so much. Fact is life is challenging and if I can't handle the challenge then i'll never receive the reward
