True story. One morning at the beginning of June I woke up stressed and anxious. All of a sudden calm washed over me when I was hit by a thought. I have a choice of worrying or doing everything I can to take care of the things I can control and let life (or God) take care of the rest. This has been the most productive time of my life, also the happiest.

You can't get much done in life if you only work on days when you feel good.

You're not gonna promise to each other that you will no disappoint one another, because at some point you will. What is important is you don't go away, you don't escape, you don't leave one another just because you were disappointed. That's the meaning of fidelity.

There are far, far better things ahead than any we leave behind. -C.S. Lewis

We have to embrace the conflict God has put in our story. Often times the scenes that we want to skip produce the endings we all love to see.

"Don't Wait for Perfection" by carmelscribe, via Flickr. Jump in and do! Just by making a start you're already miles ahead of those still too afraid of making a mistake to begin the race.

Yes, some people really do suck. Why invite them into YOUR precious life? God gives us a finite number of days above ground. Why pollute a single second/minute/hour/day/year with a sucky person? If they were the tray that raw chicken comes in, how long could you stand to leave it in your kitchen trash? Time to kick those stinky peeps to the curb trash can for pick up, baby!

Saving people is a really hard task - it won't always work. But what you can do is love them, make them feel special and let them know there's someone who cares about them and that their life is worth living.

You will get there when you are meant to get there and not one moment sooner. So relax, breathe, and be patient.
