5 thoughts on “Quote Me Wednesday”
I'm not sure if my friend thought this up all on her own, but Monday she put this on Facebook and it really spoke volumes to me:"The first step to getting what you want is admitting that you want it!"The reason this was so thought provoking for me is not because I am spoiled or have a desire to be spoiled (and therefore want to have what I want when I want it … which is usually NOW!), it spoke so much to me because I have been in a relationship with a man who does not want to have children for the past 3 years. And for the longest time, I tried to convince myself and pretend I was OK with that. But it's time for me to be honest with myself and with him. I do want a child some day. Until I am honest about that though, it won't happen.

“Reality is merely an illusion, albeit a very persistent one.”- Albert Einstein
“When I hear somebody sigh, "Life is hard," I am always tempted to ask,"Compared to what?"- Sydney J. Harris
“For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don't enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are you're not going to be very happy. If someone bases his [or her] happiness on major events like a great job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn't going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.”- Andy Rooney
