6 Quotes from My Teens Grow Up


While reading some bad poetry of my youth last night I saw a common theme in quotes I admired from way back when. 

Here are some of my teen faves and how they've grown up:
  1. If it's meant to be it will be. Don't just sit there, go and get it!
  2. If you love something set it free; if it comes back it's yours, if it doesn't, it never was. I got married.
  3. Hang in there, baby! Pull yourself together, damnit! - in Mid-Atlantic English accent
  4. If at first you don't succeed, try try again. F*ck it. 
  5. Carpe Diem. I think I should go off my medication.  
  6. I think I can, I think I can. Daily mantra for getting out of bed and going to work, finishing barre class, getting groceries...
One of my cousins must've had the cat poster in their bedroom when I was growing up because it remains indelibly etched in my mind.
