I came across this quote on A Cup Of Jo and thought it was so important that it should get Friday Links to itself.
…Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen. Repent just means to change direction—and NOT to be said by someone who is waggling their forefinger at you. Repentance is a blessing. Pick a new direction, one you wouldn’t mind ending up at, and aim for that. Shoot the moon.
It’s supposed to be lovely this weekend – I hope you get outside to enjoy it! And don’t forget that we’ve started Summer MOMs. Meet us at Vimy Ridge Park on Thursday mornings! If it’s raining and gross, both Lisa-Joy and Gabrielle have volunteered to be backup hosts, so if the weather looks questionable, check here for an update.
You are a very quiet bunch over here. That’s fine, but I’d love some feedback on whether you like the content I’m linking up on Fridays or if you’d like something different.
Finally, and this is big news, the snow has finally gone, so we’re starting the not-very-official summer meetups at Vimy! Thursday morning, around 10:30ish (although it doesn’t matter at all). It’s sometimes a bit iffy in May since it’s still chilly or raining, but come anyway! Kids are waterproof!
Welcome to May, and to spring, and to the weekend.
