"There are moments in our lives where we find ourselves at a crossroads. Afraid, confused without a road map. The choices we make in those moments can define the rest of our days. Of course, when faced with the unknown, most of us prefer to turn around and not go back. But once in a while, people push on to something better. Something found behind the pain of going alone. And just beyond the bravery and courage it takes to let someone in or to give someone a second chance. Something beyond the quiet persistence of a dream, because it is only when you are tested that you truly discover who you are. And it is only when you’re tested that you discover who you can be. The person you want to be does exist somewhere on the other side of hard work and faith and belief and beyound heartache and fear of what lies ahead."
it’s old school but damn.
needs to stop. As always, August is coming way too soon.
This has been the best summer. I really think I’ve enjoyed myself more than I ever have before :) I hate thinking about it coming to an end.
2&1/2 weeks. My heart already hurts :(
Are amazing. Yep :)
Best summer I’ve had. ever. Still got more of it too :) I never realized how important it is to spend time with people you love. Only. ONLY… Haha.
I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
But the struggles make you stronger and the changes make you wise and happiness has it’s own way of taking it’s sweet time. Life isn’t always beautiful, but it’s a beautiful ride.
- “Okay this is fear. Step away from it. Step away.”
- I thought about how often this was needed in everyday life. How we feel lonely, sometimes to the point of tears, but we don’t let those tears come because we are not supposed to cry. Or how we feel a surge of love for a partner but we don’t say anything because we are frozen with the fear of what those words might do to the relationship.
- Morrie’s approach was exactly the opposite. Turn on the faucet. Wash yourself with the emotion. It won’t hurt you. It will only help.
Feel like I need to do a better job at following that. Simple things in life can be scary..
Even my uneventful Saturday has been fun :)
My sister & I took our intoxicated parents to see Toy Story 3D<3 LOL-ed so much.
Later swam in the lovely darkness of my backyard. It’s actually really pretty at night..

OH YEAH. PSYCH IS ON WEDNESDAY. HELL YES.
I don’t want to forget anything about this summer. I have to write it down somewhere besides my emails to Kelley, whom (who?..whom?wtf?) I miss dearly.
MING-A-LINGGG-CHING. (It means I miss you) I hope you have fried enough dumplings, see the Great Wall, and make enough egg rolls you get happy-barfy. A month es mucho tiempo, wow :( &I hope they have Tumblr in China..
I never write on here, lo siento. There’s too much to do!
So I won’t hesitate no more, no more
It cannot wait, I’m sure
There’s no need to complicate, our time is short
This is our fate, I’m yours
I’m so happy with this weather. It’s just so BEAUTIFUL.
