Monday- Done!

“It’s never too late to be who you might have been.” – George Eliot


I read this quote on http://thereddressclub.blogspot.com/2011/07/letting-go-of-fear.html?  Given the subject of my last post, I thought it apropos to post the quote here.  Food for thought, wouldn't you agree?  How many of us have dreamed of making a difference in this world? Of leaving our mark?  I want to succeed as a writer so badly I ache for it.  I'm not giving up, that's not even an option for me.  I know the road to success is a long and treacherous one.  But I'm not giving up.  And neither should you, with whatever endeavor or dream you aspire.

Happy Monday kids! I trust everyone's weekend was fabulous!  Mine was super-relaxing! Lots of pool side time, reading, writing, and contemplating.  I spent my weekend at a friend's house. I kinda went on a mini-escape.  She lives in the middle of nowhere. (Cinco Ranch for you Houston folk)  I went over on Saturday afternoon and ended up spending the night.  It was cool! Lots of girl talk, some tears, lots of laughs and of course, lots of wine! Good times!

Yesterday I watched the USA women's team in a soccer match against Japan, with a group of friends.  It was a very exciting and intense match!  In the end, Japan came out victorious.  While I hated seeing the US lose, I'm glad Japan won, if for no other reason, than to get back a little happiness into that earthquake ridden country.

Well, that's all I have tonight.

You know the drill, it's a new week, make it count!

I also watched the game.

And you crack me up with your description of your trip to the middle of no where. You "inner loopers" crack me up.

Mini-escapes are nice. I like the quote, it is true we can always grow and learn. Have a great week!

Mini-escapes rule, especially with a great friend that you can drink and be merry (and sometimes not so merry) with! You hang in there on your dreams. I know I am!
