The Decision to Act

Happy Friday!

Do you have anything fun planned for the weekend?

I don’t work today, but as soon as this post is published I’m heading out to do my last long run before half marathon #5, I have my first exam for school to take this afternoon, and then we’re having dinner at some friends’ house tonight!  (I need to decide on a dessert to make, though I’m learning towards these pumpkin chocolate chip oat bars…any input, Jenna? ;)
The rest of the weekend will be low-key, and I’m more than excited for that time to catch up :)

There wasn’t anything in particular I wanted to blog about today, but I did want to share this quote with you…

If you went to HLS, you may recognize it!

Whenever I look at it, I have to read it a couple of times to really understand it all, but I just love it.

Decision to Act quote by Amelia Earhart

Have a wonderful weekend, friends!

    • I’m really looking forward to that part too – and actually, I’m taking a break from running all together after this half, so it marks a change!

  3. I love this! Hope your weekend is great :)

  9. I adore that quote!! Thanks for sharing and hope you had a great run today.

    Oh, I would go with those pumpkin bars, I went on over to check out the recipe and they sound amazing! Great choice!

  10. I’m definitely struggling lately with the decision to stop planning and just act on something I’ve been dealing with for a while. I think this post was a sign : ) good luck with your run!

    • Good luck with whatever change you’re going to make, Brittany :) Making big decisions is always intimidating, but never knowing “what if” is even worse!
      Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  11. Wow, what a great quote. I’ve never read that before. Totally needed to read that today as I literally JUST took a full-time job!

    • I made them this afternoon and sampled one (obviously, I have to test it out before bringing it to a party, right? :) and I would HIGHLY recommend them! So good and not overly sweet like a lot of bar recipes are!

  13. Love that quote! Fear is crippling… if we let it. Once we get past the initial fear, it’s never as bad as it seems! Have a great weekend love :-)
