Wise Words: Just Pick

by Britni Danielle

“If you don’t hurry up and let life know what you want, life will damned soon show you what you’ll get.” - Robertson Davies

How many of us want to just sit back and let life happen to us? While we’d probably disagree wildly with allowing others to pick our lives, for many, that’s exactly what we’ve been doing. Living up to the expectations of your friends and family at the expense you want is living life on someone else’s terms. But life is way too short, and you have the right to be your happiest self….so it’s time to pick what YOU want and start living it.

As we head into the weekend, think about what you want out of life (and if you already know, think about how you can get it). Ask yourself what makes YOU truly happy and set your mind on reaching those goals.

Enjoy your weekend, Clutchettes!

Happy Friday!

    Fortunately for me, I have never followed the expectations of someone else.

    I know what I want out of life, but it has been difficult to obtain because of all the obstacles that are in the way.
