monday's musing

"They say that time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself." - Andy Warhol

This quote makes me think of my grandmother so much. She was fiery and passionate, but she was raised a Southern belle and it was strong in her heart and soul. Part of her wanted so badly to believe that it was up to an individual to affect change, but most of her believed that a lady shouldn't be too forward. She was so unhappy, yet she waited for someone - or something - to take the initiative and change her life because she didn't believe she could do it herself. She sat and wished the phone would ring with good news, or that the mail would come telling her she had won a Publisher's Clearinghouse prize. And every day she would dream and say "some day." But she never looked inside - the most important place of all.

So - everyone? Go out there and make it yours!
