A Clean Slate

“Everything ends. But there are always new beginnings.” ~ Ralph Bellamy

It’s snowing tonight. The white flakes cover the imperfections of the earth below and create a sort of Winter Wonderland. It amazes me how quickly my little world and all of the things around me become like a blank slate. Still yet there is so much life beneath it, around it. It got me to thinking about my life and how I too have so many little imperfections (and yes, some big ones too) that I wish I could cover up. And then that got me to thinking about starting over.

Beginnings are so beautiful. Imperfect in their spontaneity and unusual in their uniqueness beginnings are ever changing – never the same for one person.

The Thinker

I tend to over analyze things. From the start of my day picking out an outfit to the end of my day in thinking about what happened that day it seems like I’m constantly thinking and analyzing.

What should I wear to work today? Is it going to rain? What if it’s cold? What if I wear something for the cold and it gets hot? Sneakers or flip-flops? If I wear flip-flops what if one of them breaks?

Quotable

February 2, 2010 § Leave a comment

I’ve started many blogs that I’ve never finished. I’ve never been able to get behind an idea and stick with it. It could be assumed that I have blog-commitment issues. Regardless I’ve found that perhaps there’s still something I have to say. So I’m going to try again in hopes that I end up with something I can stick with for the long run.

Life is quotable. Did you ever notice that for almost every situation in life there is a quote to go along with it? I enjoy reading what others have had to say and in that I’ve realized that their thoughts and words have inspired, provoked and even in some instances reminded me of things in my own life.

One of my favorite people to quote is Audrey Hepburn, as I’m sure you will see throughout the contents of my blog. So for now I’ll start by saying “Hello, again!” and end with one of my favorite quotes from the gal with the large sunglasses.

“I decided, very early on, just to accept life unconditionally; I never expected it to do anything special for me, yet I seemed to accomplish far more than I had ever hoped. Most of the time it just happened to me without my ever seeking it.”
