it sucks to put yourself out there and then get rejected over and over again. but i can’t stop. won’t stop. (sorry, couldn’t help myself.) because i’d rather know, than not know. i’d rather take the risk and end up with something real and wonderful, or at least learn from losing, than sit and wonder about it for the rest of my life. because, damn, those shoulda-coulda-wouldas blow. they’re the worst to regret.
so don’t waste precious time waiting, babes. don’t be afraid to wear your heart on your sleeve, like battle colors, and ride headfirst into the wind – regrets be damned.
taking a moment today to remember those who lost their lives 16 years ago and gratitude to those brave men and women whose service and sacrifice we could never forget. #9/11/01
