The Decision to Act

by Danica on October 4, 2013

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!

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!

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!

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 :-)
