never fear; fina is here!!

"Life is a succession of lessons which must be lived to be understood."
- Helen Keller

I prefer to make mistakes.
I'd rather try something than be told it's "wrong", "hard" or "not likely".
Don't be afraid of the "new".
Don't lets others past mistakes cloud your goals.
Do it yourself.
P.S like that title?? hehehehehe

wish others well

"You get what you get and you don't get upset."

Who first said these words?
Perhaps a lovely kindergarden teacher?
I'm not sure, but, I heard them from my wise friend Melissa.
The phrase has been popping up in my head alot over the last few days.
I'm not quite sure why.
Regardless, it's good advice.
Do you agree?

don't use sad words

For all sad words of tongue and pen, The saddest are these, "It might have been".
- John Greenleaf Whittier

it might have been.........
what if, i wish i woulda, coulda, shoulda
no second guessing, no "maybe if", no "i wish i could go back"
"if i knew then what i knew now"

If you knew, you wouldn't have learned.

What I Learned in Girl Scouts

Make new friends, but keep the old; one is silver and the other gold.

This is the best piece of advice i received during my years as a girl scout.
Yes, lil fina was a girl scout, all the way through sixth grade :)
