Rules are there for those that need them.
"Do stuff. Be clenched, curious. Not waiting for inspiration’s shove or society’s kiss on your forehead. Pay attention. It’s all about paying attention. Attention is vitality. It connects you with others. It makes you eager. Stay eager."
-Susan Sontag (via thatkindofwoman)
"Make it happen. Shock everyone."
"You are the habit
that I will spend my lifetime
trying not to break."
"Loving ourselves encourages us to set larger goals for ourselves, and own our power."
I wanted to ask you about your vision of perfection in an imperfect world, or what side of the earth calls out to you when you touch a physical globe, or maybe about your greatest heartache and how you still go on as your world continues turning, or what you do with a memory once lodged inside your bones that’s still breathing, and burning.
But you’re still a stranger and I’m overly polite, so I’ll ask all about your day when I’d rather know about your life."
-Victoria Erickson (via venuschild)
So I got a few books as birthday presents
one, from my friend Kara, is a book of great quotes called “whatever you are, be a great one” and the other two books, from my friend Erin, are filled w/ profound questions to ask yourself…

With sincere gratefulness
I can honestly and very gladly say that I am at a very good point in my life.
I’m still working on some things naturally. I’m working on being a better daughter, sister, friend and being slow to anger, hurt, and stress. I’m working on not dwelling on not feeling appreciated and recognizing others’ strengths instead of fallbacks. I’m working on harnessing my emotions and desires to create or progress. I’m working on being more selfless, being kinder, being stronger, being fiercer. I’m working on committing to things. I’m working on becoming a better clinician. I’m working on optimizing the “effectiveness of the minute”. I’m working on laughing more, sweating more, learning more, praying more, being more involved, saying yes to more experiences. Smiling more, being more playful. But also to not take myself or life too seriously, after all, no one gets out alive.
22 is off to a great start and I’m very excited about what God has in store for me as His child
