Deep Thoughts

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw

During my teenage years my favorite movie was "Sabrina" I loved the idea that an ugly duckling could run away to a foreign land, find herself and become the beautiful swan that all the boys fell in love with.  

It's taken me years and a few escapes to new places in search of myself, to realize how true Mr. Shaw's quote is - life doesn't magically change and improve become of something you find - it changes because of the steps taken every day to become the best possible person.  

I still have a long way to go in my journey, but it feels good to know I'm firmly in control and am not waiting for the fates to guide me in the right direction.

While this is a beautiful song - I'm happy to say that I'm not waiting for my life to begin - I'm living it.
