Keep Showing Up.
The other day my tumblr queue posted a quote: “Embrace the current season of your life” and that is my focus for today. It’s actually been my focus for a while now but also today specifically. (speaking of tumblr, my homepage is on fleek today haha)
“Embrace the current season of your life.”
“If I’ve learned anything in life it’s that sometimes things get in your path and you have a choice. you can either smash right into them or you can adjust and move around. But you have to do one or the other in order to move forward.”
– Lily to Serena, “Woman on the Verge” Season 1 Episode 17
So I got Amy Poehler’s new book, Yes Please for Christmas (as I incessantly requested) and the book is awesome! I love learning about the winding life journey of one of my favorite comedians. She also has some great tokens of wisdom sprinkled throughout the book which I am always appreciative of. Here’s one great piece of advice from a difficult situation she experienced. Her raw honesty leading up to this quote only makes it even more powerful.
“Apologies have nothing to do with you.
They are balloons in the sky.
They may never land.
They may even choke a bird.”
– “Say whatever you want” (p.76)
