I love this quote.
I am sure it's from multiple sources but I personally know it from a song from one of my all-time favorite bands - the Dave Matthews Band from the song "So Damn Lucky".
This quote has so much meaning to me as I am one of those people who truly appreciates the fact that you never know what's going to happen next. It's this quote in particular that helps me get through bad times by reminding me that something better is coming my way and could happen at any minute. At the same time, it keeps me optimistic even when times are good by implying that there are opportunities around every corner.
Life evolves. Without sadness, we would not know happiness. You have to take the good with the bad. In the end, it will all be ok and we are never given anything we cannot handle.
6 years ago this week (we can't remember the actual date), I met the love of my life.
I was running late to a meeting with an advertising agency and my entire team had backed out last minute. I was by myself and was not happy about it. I walked into the meeting not knowing who I was even supposed to meet. Suddenly I saw this handsome guy waving and smiling at me...
That was it. That was my minute. The minute my life changed forever. I have spent almost every minute with him since and I have never been happier!
It's amazing what a minute can do...
Happy "meet-a-versary" week my love!
