A New Ending

"Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending." ~Maria Robinson

Every once in a while I need a mindless Facebook quiz. According to FB's "What's Your Quote on Life?" quiz the quote above is my quote on life. I love it. I'm a quote nerd and I've never heard this one before.

By extension of this quote, Facebook says I am hopeful, a free-spirit, offer a healthy dose of optimism, believe in the importance of moving forward, and remember each day how fortunate I am.  

I remember that girl and it's encouraging to know she's still around. I really like the idea of making a new ending. My story - and yours - isn't written yet. Why not make a conscious effort to be present in the writing of it?

Have you read Donald Miller's "A Million Miles in a Thousand Years"? It's a great book about being active in the "writing of your story."
I'm a big Donald Miller fan to begin with, though.

Picked it up from the library yesterday. A friend read me bits of it a few weeks ago. I loved the story of the dad who decided to change his family's story by starting an orphanage and had to say of his daughter afterwards, "She is the heroine of her story, she just forgot for awhile."

I'm such a quote collector. I really like that one a bunch. Adding it to my collection :)

I love it, girl. I'm doing a lot of introspective thinking and examining right now and this really struck a chord with me.
