Title : Commencement
Author: J. Courtney Sullivan
Release Date: June 16, 2009
“These fucking women really piss me off,' April said. 'Because instead of being elated by the thought of making their own happiness and chasing some crazy dream, all they want to do is narrow their options and do something safe.” “Every woman needs secrets,' her mother said with a smile then, her eyes meeting Sally's in the rearview mirror. 'Remember that when you're old like me, pumpkin, because the world has a way of making a woman's life everyone else's business--you have to dig out a little place that's only yours.”

He leans back to look at her. "The statistical probability of love at first sight."
"Very funny," she says. "What is it really?"
"I don't believe you."

Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery... who makes you want to kiss back.
Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it.

One of the most important things that I've learned and wished I my younger self would've followed is to Believe in Yourself. When I was in high school I think I gave in to pressure at home and at school, that I began to doubt myself and what I was capable of doing.
Of course, I didn't know how to bring it back and believe in myself so it carried over to college. I wasn't the best me back then, and I think it had to do with the fact that I wasn't doing things for me, but for my family and for my friends.
Now that I'm out of school and back home, I'm still dealing with that doubtfulness. Is this the right path? Should I be doing something else? Am I truly happy? What is my next step? I should be doing more.
But I'm learning to believe in myself. Listening to what my gut is telling me. Following the dreams that I've made for myself, even if its completely different than what I'm doing now.
Just like this quote says, if you believe in that thing inside you, you will overcome any obstacle life puts ahead of you. You are your biggest fan, or at least you need to be. If you don't believe in yourself, then who will. This what I need to remember, whenever I feel like I'm failing

This past weekend my girls and I took a trip to San Diego. The Gaslamp Quarter. We have realized that keeping in touch with each other despite all our busy lives is important. Since we all live in different parts of California, we also realized that we will make any excuse to see each other.
