I had the loveliest coffee and cake date with one of my dearest of friends. She's been a friend of mine since elementary school and someone with whom I have loved growing up. She's wise beyond her years, and we always have the most intelligent and open-minded discussions about everything. We got talking tonight about women friends in our lives who really bring themselves down with negative self-talk. I can be accused of that sometimes, and sometimes I say words but don't really believe they apply to me. But tonight, talking with my friend, she truly made me believe in the power of words. I came across this beautiful quote:
"For every beauty, there is an eye somewhere to see it." Ivan Panin
It's something that women have a hard time believing, but because my year is dedicated to 'Vive Audacter,' I'm going to try to believe it too.
