I hope you have the strength to start over

I was going to write a post on my thoughts about a quote I saw today that was attributed to F. Scott Fitzgerald;

I thought it a beautiful sentiment that gives me courage as I’m on my new adventure. Some days I feel like I jumped off the cliff into an abyss. But it’s not a dark scary place, its a place with lots of light and hope. Yes it’s scary, I am still looking for a job and ways to support myself. I want to use this time not to trap myself in a job that makes me unhappy for then what was it all for? I want to find my passion, have adventure, explore, love. Don’t we all? But I’ve done more then think about it, I leapt into the abyss.

Anyway so while I was researching the quote above I found a blog that suggests it wasn’t even him that wrote it! And that leads to the beautiful quote from the movie The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, and I love what the character played by Brad Pitt has to say, And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life you’re proud of. If you find that you’re not, I hope you have the strength to start all over again.

If you want to read the article about the misquote it’s entertaining, and happily shows that I am not the only one to fall in love with misquotes online! “The Curious Case of Misquotation”
