Words to Live By

Photo by my friend Miranda circa the High School years
People (including myself) tend to complain when things don't change for them. When something is bad, or they're tired of a certain thing continuing to happen to them, they can't understand why it just keeps happening. One thing I have to remind myself daily is that if I keep trying to do the same things over and over again, you will keep getting the same results. For example, say I have been trying to lose weight. I complain about hating the way my body looks, but continue my same daily routines. The only way to see a change is to make one. What have you been putting off changing in your life?

  3. Just discovered your blog, and,I must say, it's a winner :] Makes me smile (P.S. LOVE finding another Potterhead! XD! And my boy and I were long-distance for three years--don't see too many of our type ;]). Best wishes and have a great week!

  4. i love that photo!

    and i have trouble with doing the same things over and over too - i was letting my work troubles get to me way too much at home until i took a step back and realized that i was letting something trivial that won't matter in a few years get to me way too much! excellent advice.
