Meaty Mondays
Or 'Mark Twain Is My Spirit Animal'

Today is the first installment of Meaty Mondays, a weekly post where I give you something to ponder for the week, something to give you purpose and hope, something uplifting. To see a full detailing of all of the changes happening over here at 52 Weeks of Wordage, please click here.

I am currently making a lot of changes not only on this blog but in my personal life, and it's all because of Mark Twain.

Well... that may be a bit hyperbolic, but he was definitely the reason I chose to make these much needed changes.

Back in late December, I came across a quote by him that I had read before, but for whatever reason it really resonated with me this time. See below for the quote in full.

Amen, brother. Amen.

This is life, guys. I'll be damned if I get to be 40 years old and am disappointed by all of the things that I didn't do because I was too scared, too poor, too [insert lame excuse here] to do.

Don't let the curve balls that life throws at you hold you back. Swing, and swing hard. If you miss, you miss. But at least you tried.

Will you be disappointed 20 years from now?

Think on it.
