It isn’t where you came from, it’s where you’re going that counts.
~ Ella Fitzgerald
I just stumbled on this quote in my weekly quote-quest, and was struck by how similar it was to something I’ve been saying for awhile – “It ain’t where you’ve been, it’s where you’re going” (true story – it’s on my Facebook page). I’m a firm believer that although our past affects who we are as individuals, it doesn’t define us (another similar quote worth mentioning: “My past does not equal my future” ~ Lisa Nichols). Sometimes that’s a tough belief to overcome.

It’s never too late – never too late to start over, never too late to be happy.
~ Jane Fonda
Time to stop feeling sorry for myself. Time to stop the regrets. Time to stop being old. Remember what it feels like to be alive.

A man is not old until regrets take the place of dreams.
~ John Barrymore
I’ve never been one to harbour regrets – but lately, I’ve found myself feeling “old” and have been walking that thin line between regret and frustration. I’m constantly taking reminders that my dreams are still valid, no matter how old I am, or how old I may get to be.

it takes courage to grow up and become who you really are.
I’ve spent the last week on a self-prescribed vacation, fighting the urge to slip back into the “norm” while constantly reassuring myself that it’s okay to just be myself. It’s amazing what a little time alone can do.

Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
~ Dr. Seuss
It seems like every time I turn around, I’m learning something new about myself or discovering some aspect of my personality that I’ve been hiding. I am truly a work in progress (I think I always will be) and thankfully, the majority of people in my life don’t mind. In fact, they’re my cheerleaders.

Everything changed the day he figured out there was exactly enough time for the important things in his life.
~ Brian Andreas, Storypeople
I’ve always felt like I’ve had a crappy relationship with Time. I either have too much of it or too little – and both options drive me crazy. As of late, I’ve tried to make peace with Time by telling myself I always have the perfect amount of it. So far, so good.

If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing that you are the author and everyday you have the opportunity to write a new page.
~ Mark Houlahan
One of the hardest things I ever realized was that my life was my own – I was not responsible for living up to what I thought was everyone else’s expectations. I write my own story – what are you writing in yours?

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
A sincere thank you to all the wonderful people in my life who make me feel every day. There are so many of you – and probably many of you have no idea how much you positively affect the day-to-day happenings of my life. You make my sun shine

For after all, the best one can do when it is raining is to let it rain.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I think this quote holds a lot of truth, but if I had known Mr. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow while he was alive, I might have suggested that perhaps he put on a raincoat or carry an umbrella. Yes, it’s impossible to stop the rain, but we can certainly brace ourselves for it – or at least enjoy stomping in the puddles!

I know it would be incredibly appropriate to have a lovely Mother’s Day quote today. BUT instead, I’m putting up some weekend wisdom in celebration of my 23rd birthday.
What? I could be 23.
