thursday’s thought

life in blush thursday's thought - your life is a jane austen novel. It's not over, chapter one is just beginning

That’s what my friend said to me after my relationship ended, and while I thought the analogy was so fitting, (there’s no end to my obsession over Marianne Dashwood and Colonel Brandon) I didn’t realize how deep the seed was going to be planted.

The more I think about it the more I realize that it’s a life mantra that need not only apply to new beginnings. You should always view your life as if you were turning the page on Chapter 1. Just think about it! Think of all the exciting trips yet to go on, interesting people yet to meet and achievements yet to claim when your story is just beginning.

The other amazing thing about thinking of my life as a Jane Austen novel is that Mindy Kaling’s Twitter background picture is of the two Dashwood sisters from Sense & Sensiblity (click here). Guys, it’s like we were meant to be best friends.
