Nickelback & A Great Quote

AHHHH! I am so excited! The Scrapping the Music Challenge this week is a NICKELBACK SONG!!! WHOO HOOO!!!!! And, the song (If Today Was Your Last Day) is one of my favorites considering its inspirational words and meaning! Nickelback sang this song at their concert in which was one of the best times of my life! I cannot wait to get to the store tomorrow and start pondering ideas for my layout.

In recent weeks my life has had some major twists and turns. No worries, everything was good. My quote for my life at this point is: Everything happens as it is supposed to, there are no accidents, and we are where we are supposed to be.

Believe it or not, I found it on facebook. I always used to worry about what other people would say, think, or how they would judge me. After reading the Secret, I know that those who judge people only bring more judgement onto them. No one can understand how each individual person feels inside and no one may ever understand the choices they make. But it isn't up to us to decide what is best for another person. We all have our own experiences and we all handle them differently. This is not to be judged because all of us have different opinions. Keep in mind that we always make the best choices for ourselves whether it feels wrong or right. It will get us to where we need to be in life whether others agree with it or not. Personally at almost 36 years old, I will follow my heart, using my head, and get to where I want to be. I appreciate concerns of others but appreciate support even more. Those who do not agree will get over it. I know I have lots of awesome things in store for my future. How I get there, doesn't really matter. "Against the grain should be the way of life, what's worth the prize is always worth the fight" lyrics from the If Today Was Your Last Day by Nickelback. Those who are still by my side when my dreams are achieved are my true cheerleaders of life.
