Steel Magnolias is one of my favorite movies. And well, Shelby has one of my favorite quotes. When she’s discussing whether her high risk pregnancy is worth it with her mom, Shelby says, “I’d rather have 15 minutes of wonderful than a lifetime of nothing special.”
And y’all isn’t that the truth.
When I started my blog in 2009, I called it A Life Worth Living, because, well, it is. Especially when we live it for Him.
I realized that I didn’t want to be a spectator. I didn’t want to be a sit and watch kinda girl. I wanted to live life to the fullest. I’ve done things that have been totally out of my comfort zone because life is worth it. At one point early in our marriage, my husband and I considered moving to Florida. I even got job application packets from coastal school districts. You just never know until you try!
And to me, trying is worth it. I don’t want to live life with regrets. I want to know at the end of my life that I took advantage of every opportunity God gave me. I want to know that I lived and learned, that I was able to move on after trials and failures.
