Everyone else at my house is asleep.
I sit, laptop in hand, staring up at the ceiling because I am still on college time (it’s only 11:45 PM right now). How can I go to bed before midnight? I thought I might provide some of you others with the same problem as me with some reading entertainment. I’m starting to realize some things about life. These may seem disjunctive, but the following is a reflection on some of the things I’ve learned this past semester.
Sometimes the things you love and the things you cherish have to leave you for you realize what you really love and what you really cherish.
Sometimes the hardest thing and the right thing are the same.
-via. the Fray
Pain is a refining fire, sometimes it is the only thing strong enough to awake us out of contentment.
Being happy and content is not the point of a relationship. A relationship is first and foremost about challenging others to be the greatest person they can be. It is truly good when it is “a garden bursting into life.”
(You can thank my manager Justin who I work with in Santa Maria and Snow Patrol for this one)
You can’t make people love you. All you can do is let yourself be loved.
Doing the small things right makes the big things easier.
Take it slow, there is plenty of time.
Don’t hold too tightly, God will surely loosen anything you hold to more tightly than him.
If you want to be happy, be happy. Happiness is not an emotion, it is a way of life.
Wisdom comes only through experience, not through the reading of many books. There is a difference between wisdom and knowledge.
Knowing the right thing and doing the right thing are two completely different things.
Serving God is hard. Sometimes it is too hard. Jesus made ministry too hard, so that we could only do it by the grace of God.
Hindsight is always twenty-twenty, that doesn’t make the past a mistake.
The biggest mistake is a lesson unlearned.
That is all.
