do something.

Leave it to good ol' TJ to remind me that I can't just sit around expecting change to happen. Consider this quote the fuel for the fire of a great week. So many times, I sit around expecting things to come to me. As much as I'd like it, the truth is that most opportunities don't fall squarely in my lap. Hard work is required to achieve a different outcome. In other words, keep your eyes peeled. {long distance loving} turns three in November--and I want to bring you the best content yet. Many thanks for sticking along for the ride!

What will you be doing differently this week? This week and beyond, I want to invest the right energy into the posts I create for you. Is there anything in particular you'd like to see on {ldl}? I am all ears!

Thank you, Thomas Jefferson {and my sweet reader, Amy}, for inspiring this post today. Let this simple reminder help guide your week--I know it will be guiding mine :) xoxo {av}
