If they miss you, they’ll call. If they want you, they’ll say it. If they care, they’ll show it. And if not, they aren’t worth your time.

And the days that I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, I have really good days.

Make a radical change in your lifestyle and begin to boldly do things which you may previously never have thought of doing, or been too hesitant to attempt. So many people live within unhappy circumstances and yet will not take the initiative to change their situation because they are conditioned to a life of security, conformity, and conservation, all of which may appear to give one peace of mind, but in reality nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man’s living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences, and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun. If you want to get more out of life, you must lose your inclination for monotonous security and adopt a helter-skelter style of life that will at first appear to you to be crazy. But once you become accustomed to such a life you will see its full meaning and its incredible beauty.

Another way that social work has been depoliticized and remade as a neutral profession is by taking struggle out of practice, remaking it as an apolitical, technical form of professional work undertaken by well-educated and kindly people. In actuality, social work is a series of acute, ongoing, political struggles over what services and resources will be provided, to whom, by whom, in what amount, and to what end.

Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.

You are mysterious. I love you. You’re beautiful, intelligent, and virtuous, and that’s the rarest known combination.

So…

I have applied for tons of jobs in the Boston area…whatttt? Yes. True.

Even one with the current organization I work for. Even though they totally suck. It would at least get me in the area.

You know when it’s time for a change? I’ve never wanted to stay in this area (even though I love it and its natural beauty and blah blah blah), I’m done. I’m ultra-done with letting other people and their opinions keep me from going after something I want - even though that thing is not so well defined AT THE MOMENT. I do feel that I’m not moving forward here, so why not try in a larger city with better opportunities?

I’m so ready to go. I’m ready for anything and everything new.

Life will break you, nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on Earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

I’m only pretty sure that I can’t take anymore
Before you take a swing
I wonder
What are we fighting for?
When I say out loud 
"I want to get out of this"
I wonder
Is there anything I’m going to miss?

I fucking hate when I see this shit and it is exactly what I am talking about. Fuck you, adulthood, and your awful feelings and emotional complexities.

[And when I let a damn Third Eye Blind song make me feel this way. Goddammmmmmmmn.]

And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
