Bittersweet

I should probably just go ahead and buy Shauna Niequist’s “Bittersweet: Thoughts on Change, Grace, and Learning the Hard Way” since I’m already loving the quotes that I just read from the book. In the meantime, I will go ahead and share a handful that I am lovin’…

“It’s not hard to decide what you want your life to be about. What’s hard, she said, is figuring out what you’re willing to give up in order to do the things you really care about.”

“Everybody has a home team: It’s the people you call when you get a flat tire or when something terrible happens. It’s the people who, near or far, know everything that’s wrong with you and love you anyways. These are the ones who tell you their secrets, who get themselves a glass of water without asking when they’re at your house. These are the people who cry when you cry. These are your people, your middle-of-the-night, no-matter-what people.”

“When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. And when life is bitter, say thank you and grow.”

“There are times when the actual experience of leaving something makes you wish desperately that you could stay, and then there are times when the leaving reminds you a hundred times over why exactly you had to leave in the first place.”

“I don’t always change my clothes just because I’m leaving the house. I wear yoga pants 99 percent of the time, and I pretend that other people don’t notice that I’m wearing my pajamas in public.”

Hope you had a great weekend and that all is well ❤
