Thursday Thought: Reinvention

As we march into 2012, the New Years "starting fresh" tropes are pretty well over done already. However, there is nothing wrong with reinventing your self in your own way. Some people use New Years Day as a starting point to bettering their lives. Good for them! Others wait around until New Years to "try" and then fail, only to put it off until the next New Years Day. Booo! It doesn't have to be the 1st of January to become a new, better you. Reinvent yourself every day. Do everything in your power to be a better person now because you are not guaranteed tomorrow. New Years Day 2013 is a very long ways away so don't wait. Here are some thoughts to keep in mind as you learn and grow with every breath you take.

I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. To not be like your parents. To not be like your friends. To be yourself. To cut yourself out of stone.
Henry Rollins

The reinvention of daily life means marching off the edge of our maps.
Bob Black
To combine the two: Define yourself by detouring off the map. Catchy, no? :)

Love is love, no matter the back story. <3 DS
