So I saw this quote recently (maybe it was in Bossypants? which btw is awesome and you should definitely read it) and at first I kind of dismissed it. And then as I was sitting around this week, thinking about how much I really don't want to complete yet another freelance assignment that I blithely took on in lazier times (aka two weeks ago), and it occurred to me. This quote is my life. This is how I've unwittingly lived for the past 25 years. And sure, it creates stress sometimes. Maybe a lot of times. But you know something?
I wouldn't change for anything.
I've had some pretty awesome opportunities so far (one of which I'm still kind of keeping mum — nothing's published yet but believe me you'll know when it is) and some pretty awesome life experiences to boot. I don't always succeed in living up to it, though. Sometimes I give up. Sometimes I say no, I can't, it's too hard. That's okay too, I guess. I see it as room for improvement :)
Uh...I don't get introspective very often. Now I feel awkward. I'm just gonna go ahead and schedule this post and close the window now...
(And go finish writing this assignment because it's Thursday night as I'm typing this and I have a Friday deadline. Shh.)
