Thought-provoking quote

I saw this quote in someone's Facebook status several days ago and it stayed with me. I'm pasting it here in case I need to make a graceful exit after our trip to Denver.

There’s a trick to the "graceful exit." It begins with the vision to recognize when a job, a life stage, or a relationship is over — and let it go. It means leaving what’s over without denying its validity or its past importance to our lives. It involves a sense of future, a belief that every exit line is an entry, that we are moving up, rather than out.

My husband just asked, "Are you working or blogging?" so I read him this quote and told him why I'm saving it. To the possibility of needing it to help make a graceful exit, he said, "You won't. We're going to have four or five fertilize."

We do both feel fairly optimistic, which is nice. I feel very balanced at the moment. I hope it lasts!


  1. That's a great quote.

    Good luck in Denver!

  2. I like this quote, very elegant. "Every exit line is an entry" reminds me of "every door that closes another one opens".

    First time reader (from Mel's post), looking foward to following your journey! Hope you get double digit eggs. :)

  3. That is a very beautiful quote. Best wishes!
