"First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you’re inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won’t. Habit is persistence in practice."
a busy yet productive day
Been to the mall to accompany my advisees on their film showing then headed to school to send em home then went back to the mall for the family dinner of some sort. :)
"1. Your skin may never be perfect, and that’s okay.
2. Life is too short not to have the underwear, the coffee, and the haircut you want.
3. Everyone (including your family, your coworkers, and your best friend) will talk about you behind your back, and you’ll talk about them too. It doesn’t mean you don’t love each other.
4. It’s okay to spend money on things that make you happy.
5. Sometimes without fault or reason, relationships deteriorate. It will happen when you’re six, it will happen when you’re sixty. That’s life."
"The practice of forgiveness is our most important contribution to the healing of the world."
"Talking at people is easy. It’s talking TO them that’s really hard, for then what you say, when you say it and how you say it actually matters. Talking to people requires that you know them — really KNOW them — but how can we know anyone if we don’t first try to talk to them? We will probably mess up, which is why grace (unmerited favor), forgiveness and a willingness to be hurt is necessary to form intimate relationships. When you know that the other person will forgive you no matter what, you know they love you, and you become absolutely free to try and love them back."
Something supported by personal experience and Psychology, but learned from Jesus. (via ask-wordsmith)
I’m mad at someone yet she hasn’t done anything bad towards me. She just kind of flirted with the person I not only once dumped and happened to have a relationship with him. Had. This anger has long consumed me. This has to end.
Guess it’s time for forgiveness then. If I wanna learn ho to forgive others for what they have done to me, I should learn how to forgive myself first.
