That means...To Thine Own Self Be True in Italian...
"Courage is not the absence of fear...but rather the judgment...that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever...but the cautious do not live at all. The key is to allow yourself to make the journey."
My name is Natalie, I graduated from Seattle University on June 15, 2003 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science with a specialization in Business :) I'm pretty wonderful ;)
One of the things I have realized about myself...I have not done enough with my life in terms of travel:
I am also a dreamer... I still believe in Prince Charming...I still believe in Happily Ever After...I still believe everything will work out the way it should. I also believe that if one is prepared to succeed any opportunity necessary to get from point A to point B will be fully accessible.
I live in Massachusetts :) And what can I say? I am happy all around :) I looooooovvvvvvveeee to travel which is great for living in New England since I am so close to other states!
*clear throat* Onto more serious matters...This journal is an outlet for me, it is going to show a continuous growth of me as a person in my personal life. I will write sexual stories, I will write about my relationship problems, my days at work, and I will write about my thoughts on how I view certain things...that is the gist of my journal. One thing I can promise you is that my life is definitely interesting to say the least, something always seems to be happening to me...lol...well...enjoy ;)
I am also learning French... :D Bonjour, comment allez vous? Je suis une personne chanceuse ;) Speak French?? Let's have a conversation!
I also (August 22, 2002) created a community...loveguru where people can go to ask questions about their relationships problems, etc.
I found this quote from a community and I really like it:
"Wait for the one who pursues you, the one who will make an ordinary moment seem magical, the kind of person who brings out the best in you and makes you want to be a better person. Wait for the one who will be your best friend. Wait for the one who makes you smile like no other, and when (s)he smiles you know (s)he needs you. Wait for the one who wants to show you off to the world no matter what your appearance. Most of all, wait for the one who will put you at the center of his/her universe, because obviously (s)he'd be at the center of yours."
Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars.
Excellence means asking more of yourself than others do.
History is important because it shows us who we are by showing us who we were.
Sometimes the things that are scary are the most worthwhile.
Some dreams are worth the risks required to make them real
What lies behind us and what lies ahead of us are tiny matters compared to what lives within us.
One is not entitled to anything; one must work towards opportunities and privileges
Lessons in Life Life is a game where you are juggling 5 balls. The balls are called work, family, health, friends, and integrity. You are keeping them all in the air. But one day you finally come to understand that work is a rubber ball. If you drop it, it will bounce back. The other 4 balls family, health, friends, and integrity are made of glass. If you drop one of these it will be irrevocably scuffed, nicked, perhaps even shattered, And once you truly understand the lesson of the 5 balls you will have the beginnings of balance in your life
James Patterson ================================================== Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself
Chief Seattle ================================================== "What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us."
Ralph Waldo Emerson ================================================== For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge you'll never walk alone. People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; Never throw out anybody. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you'll find one at the end of your arm. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others. The beauty of woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mole, but true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is caring that she lovingly gives, the passion that she shows, and the beauty of a woman with passing years only grows!
