One step forward, two steps back.


You will receive a body.  You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for as long as you live.  How you take care of it or fail to take care of it can make an enormous difference in the quality of your life.
You will learn lessons.  You are enrolled in a full-time, informal school called Life.  Each day, you will be presented with opportunities to learn what you need to know.  The lessons presented are often completely different from those you think you need.
There are no mistakes, only lessons.  Growth is a process of trial, error and experimentation.  You can learn as much from failure as you can from success. Maybe more.
A lesson is repeated until it is learned.  A lesson will be presented to you in various forms until you have learned it.  When you have learned it (as evidenced by a change in your attitude and ultimately your behavior) then you can go on to the next lesson.
Learning lessons does not end.  There is no stage of life that does not contain some lessons.  As long as you live there will be something more to learn.
“There” is no better than “here”.  When your “there” has become a “here” you will simply discover another “there” that will again look better than your “here.” Don’t be fooled by believing that the unattainable is better than what you have.
Others are merely mirrors of you.  You cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects something you love or hate about yourself.  When tempted to criticize others, ask yourself why you feel so strongly.
What you make of your life is up to you.  You have all the tools and resources you need.  What you create with those tools and resources is up to you.  Remember that through desire, goal setting and unflagging effort you can have anything you want. Persistence is the key to success.
The answers lie inside of you.  The solutions to all of life’s problems lie within your grasp.  All you need to do is ask, look, listen and trust yourself.

I took my Microbiology test today, it kicked my butt. I'm not going to do anything but study from now on! I feel like I have been slacking. I used to always read, and practice my grammar... now it seems like I never do that. I'm kind of tempted to just stop using my phone and just find myself. I'm guessing it would take about a month. I'm even thinking about taking a month off work to just find myself. I have well enough saved to spare a month. Maybe when it's warmer though... not much to do when it's below freezing. :/  Although, I am going to go for a jog here in a few seconds, I just need something to get my mind off things, and relax me, so I'm all in for the below freezing cold.
Sometimes I wonder if I'm becoming anti-social or maybe everyone is just annoying!
My favorite photographer wrote me back. His photography is so mesmerizing. He is living the life I envy! He travels around the world and captures unique photos. Love this guy.
Here is the conversation:

    Your photography is breathtakingly memorizing. I love when I find photography that can truly capture the beauty that not everyone can see. I’m currently trying to save up for a nice camera, and you have inspired me even more to work towards my goal. I was speculating, do you ever allow internships to go with you on your trips?
    Sincerely, Kim

    Hi Kim,
    thanx so much for the cool note! and don’t forget…if you can’t get enough funds for a new camera…….there’ always robbing a bank…..or… printing out some dough on your Epson printer…….or…..
    hmmmmm>??? Monopoly money sometimes can fool the camera store employees…….
    and I did take a student with me to India and Burma a few years ago…. but now my girlfriend is my assistant…… soooooooo……..
    the rest as I say……. is history…..
    but I do hope you get that camera…and venture out into the beautiful world…….and capture as much as you can!!!
    that’s what I do……
    stay in touch…
    see ya Kim, Scott.
