I love Emerson

No change of circumstances can repair a defect of character.

- Ralph Waldo Emerson, writer

I love Emerson's quotes and cannot get enough of them. This week has been quite challenging for me and this quote reminds me to stay on track with what I am doing with my life. It also tells me that I am the only one that "is the boss of me" and blaming or taking it out on others that my circumstances are so grim is just plain wrong. I am trying hard to keep a positive outlook and know that there is something out there I am meant to be doing. There are growing pains with every change and I know, trust me I totally do, that it is NOT easy. But you have to trust yourself that you will make the right choices. You have to trust that YOU alone can find what it is you are looking for. Happiness does not show up on your doorstep, you must go out and seek what truly makes happiness for YOU.

Have a wonderful weekend!!

Your post reminded me of Joel. Whenever Joel is relaxing and I come to him with my "honey-do" list he says, "Hey, you're not the boss of me." LOL. Then I have to pull out the pouty face, you know? ;P

And I bet that pouty face works every time! ;)
