Today and yesterday were good days. :) productive and in a good mood, even if I almost dosed off a couple of times. But honestly, that’s all I can really ask for right now; for today to be good and for tomorrow to be good too.
Even in the most peaceful surroundings the angry heart finds a quarrel. Even in the most quarrelsome surroundings the grateful heart finds peace.
A comfort zone is a beautiful place, but nothing ever grows there.
You have to learn to say no without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to respect and take care of yourself.
That’s what careless words do. They make people love you a little less.
Fall Semester is starting next week, and I just realized that I finally get to wear that watch that I bought when I was home to work. I finally get to dress up again and not worry about getting attacked or scratched.
It’s the little things, right? :)
1 If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. 4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12 Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror;then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
I fight because throughout all of this, we’ve done something I never really thought was possible. We pushed back and have managed to bring back the happiness I once felt with you. Because we fought, forgave, and held onto each other. If we don’t end up together, at least this is proof that we did a pretty darn good job at trying.
The truth is, everyone is going to hurt you. You just got to find the ones worth suffering for.
I never thought I would miss an area so small, so much. I’ve realized that I really miss Columbia. It was a beautiful town, with lots of foliage. It had a surprising amount of diversity, even if it could have had better, and I knew where I was. I knew my places, like where I wanted my frozen yogurt from, what streets were where, my favorite clubs and bars, my favorite things.
But most of all, I miss the friends I made there. I miss running into friends going out, or at random places that you never expected to see or to remember. The people I knew I had beside me and the people I knew I wanted with me. Columbia gave me so much, and I miss it so dearly.
