"Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate."

Day 4, Saturday: Favorite quote and why you love it.

"Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them, what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we wouldn't fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and people go. But it's comforting to know the ones you love are always in your heart. And if you're very lucky, a plane ride away."
Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City

You've probably seen this quote in my posts before, so it's obviously one of my favorites. Sex and the City is one of my all-time favorite shows, and honestly it really helped define and shape who I was when I was in my 20s.

At that time in my life I definitely made a lot of mistakes. But now that I'm past that phase, I've come to realize that without those missteps, I wouldn't be who or where I am today. I needed to screw up, to get hurt, to fall down, to cry, to learn, to fight, to grow. To pick my broken self back up off the floor again and again, each time getting a little closer to the person I wanted to become. Each choice I made, whether good or bad, has helped to create this happy little life that I've built for myself.

During that same time in my life, my friendships helped define me. The ups and downs, the dramatics and hysterics, the highs and lows... all of these moments that I experienced with my girlfriends either helped to make or break those friendships. So many of them have stood strong through these ultimate tests, and I feel incredibly lucky to have those people in my life.

So many things changed for us during our 20s, and unfortunately not all of those friendships survived. But I'm so thankful for the ones that are still standing strong, and even though many of those people live far away, they are always close to my heart, and I hope they know how much they mean to me. (You guys know who you are... and you've got the love... xoxo)
