The London 2012 Olympics has come to a close.

Amidst all the event highlights and lowlights, one tweet won gold for me --

"What will never change about the Olympics:
the respect I have for someone
willing to invest four years
for the chance at a moment." 
-- sports business analysts Darren Rovell

Relate. Relate. Relate.

I'm no athlete. Far from being one. But I know how it is to invest and commit 'everything' to a dream. Yes, for the chance AT A MOMENT. 

Sometimes, you wish the moment could last longer. But once you realize how glorious the moment was, you know it's more, more, more than enough.

Everyone who risks is a winner.

Cheers to us!

"If you had a chance to change your fate, would you?" 
-- Princess Merida, 'Brave'

Photo taken by Hubby, from today's movie date. 

Brave's storyline was a little bit...underwhelming. 

But it touched me because I'm still in my "reflecting over life" birthday mood. What a year it has been! Exactly twelve months ago, we bravely took the big leap into the great unknown.  

Fade in music:
"What a journey it has been
And the end is not in sight
But the stars are out tonight
And they're bound to guide my way..."

Hope the past twelve months have been as exciting, as blessed, as awesome for all of you. 

"Some say our destiny is tied to the land, as much a part of us as we are of it. Others say fate is woven together like a cloth, so that one's destiny intertwines with many others. It's the one thing we search for, or fight to change. Some never find it. But there are some who are led." -- Princess Merida

Bold and Brave
