Just because I laugh a lot, doesn’t mean my life is easy. Just because I have a smile on my face every day, doesn’t mean that somethings not bothering me. Its just that I choose to move on with the negative in my life, and keep my head up, instead of dwelling on the past.
“Whenever You Breathe Out, I Breathe In” by Modest Mouse
I didn’t go to work for a month I didn’t leave my bed for eight days straight I haven’t hung out with anyone ‘Cause if I did, I’d have nothing to say I didn’t feel angry or depressed I didn’t feel anything at all I didn’t want to go to bed And I didn’t want to stay up late When you’re living your life, well, that’s the price you pay
“If you don’t pray often, you won’t gain a love for praying. Prayer is work, and therefore it is not very appealing to our natural sensibilities. But the simple rule for prayer is this: Begin praying and your taste for prayer will increase. The more you pray, the more you will acquire the desire for prayer, the energy for prayer, and the sense of purpose in prayer.”—Leslie Ludy (Wrestling Prayer)
“To be fully free, we must have the desire, the ability, and the opportunity to do what will make us happy forever. No regrets. And only Jesus, the Son of God who died and rose for us, can make that possible. If the Son shall set you free, you shall be free indeed.”—John Piper (via craigtowens)
“The opportunity of a lifetime is to pick yourself. Quit waiting to get picked; quit waiting for someone to give you permission; quit waiting for someone to say you are officially qualified and pick yourself. It doesn’t mean you have to be an entrepreneur or a freelancer, but it does mean you stand up and say, ‘I have something to say. I know how to do something. I’m doing it. If you want me to do it with you, raise your hand.”— Seth Godin
