    The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide your problems are your own. You do not blame them on your mother, the ecology, or the president. You realize that you control your own destiny.

    If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.

    I’m a dirt person. I trust the dirt. I don’t trust diamonds and gold.

  8. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God.

    Dear loved ones,

    I am so sorry if all I talk about is grad school this, grad school that…

    I am sure you are all tired of hearing me talk about it. It’s just that I really do not know life outside of it right now. I breathe, eat, sleep grad school, so naturally, it is the only thing that I can talk about.

    I appreciate your unconditional love & support during this very busy and stressful time. ❤️ I appreciate you restraining yourselves from slapping me every time I start my sentence with, “I hate school…” I know I must have said that a million and one times. I appreciate your understanding of my need to refrain from any social or anything-that-takes-more-than-1-hour activity at this time.

    I love you all so very much. ❤️

    I used to pray that God would feed the hungry, or do this or that, but now I pray that he will guide me to do whatever I’m supposed to do, what I can do. I used to pray for answers, but now I’m praying for strength. I used to believe that prayer changes things, but now I know that prayer changes us and we change things.

    If you break your neck, if you have nothing to eat, if your house is on fire, then you got a problem.  Everything else is inconvenience. 

    ~Robert Fulghum

  12. One day at a time


    We can easily manage if we will only take, each day, the burden appointed to it.  But the load will be too heavy for us if we carry yesterday’s burden over again today, and then add the burden of the morrow before we are required to bear it. 

    ~John Newton

  14. We are made of love,
    And all the beauty stemming from it.
    We are made of love,
    And every fracture caused by the lack of it.

    “You were a million years of work,”
    Said God and His angels, with needle and thread.
    They kissed your head and said,
    “You’re a good kid and you make us proud.
    So just give your best and the rest will come,
    And we’ll see you soon.”

    Toy adaptation: work in progress. 

I love this whole process, but it just got a lot more complicated than I had originally planned.
