Talking Inspiring Quote

I LOVE postsecret and when I saw this quote tattooed on someones side in today's secrets I HAD to post it for you guys

"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom"

this has been your daily inspiration brought to you by your local Tammy.

On my own personal journey I started on September 27, 2008
Starting weight 377, Weight in spring of 2010 198, Weight in August 2011? In the 240's.
Still plugging along on this weight loss highway!

That quote is so for me (greedy!) that I feel slightly sick reading it...

not going to hijack this thread, and I've still got a lot of stuff to sort out in my head but I've been doing a lot of thinking the last couple of days, all about me, not The Other Person, and I really think I'm getting uncomfortable to be a bud!

Dukan & divin'.....

It's from a poem called "Risk" by Anais Nin. The first part is:

"It takes courage to push yourself to places that you have never been before... to test your limits... to break through barriers. And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom."

Great quote! I'll add it to my collection. When I saw the title of this post, I thought it might be different quotes from different members- but it's just getting started. So, I want to add 2 I've come across lately that I like, and maybe they'll be added to someone's collection too. (I'd like to have these on my signature line, but haven't taken time to figure out how to do that yet!)

Great quote. It reminds somewhat of the quote that is at the bottom of my signature. We all want to bloom and change don't we?
