We are made better by ill....

The
good are better made by ill, as odors crushed sweeter still.

Today
I was working in the sun all day and I am so exhausted now. But at least I got
a tan. I met this girl that's new to town it's not like we exchanged numbers or
e-mails but we chatted. I also talked with this one acquaintance of mine who
has been in Ireland
she just got back and was working with her mom at her store but we only spoke
shortly. But at least she didn't ignore me. Yesterday this woman commented on
my necklace which meant a lot to me because my fiancé gave it to me a while
ago. I wear it all the time and along the way I've collected other charms and
stuff for it.

 

Here
are some things I'm going to try to do:

  1. I will not dwell on the past
    and worry about the future
  2. I will treat other people
    with respect and compassion
  3. I will be good to myself
  4. I will learn to love and
    accept myself
  5. I will be good to the planet
  6. I will try to live cheerfully
  7. I will be open and tolerant
    to others beliefs and opinions.
  8. I will remember that a life
    lives simply is beautiful
  9. I will learn to rest in the
    arms of the lord, spirit.
  10. I will express myself and be
    free

 

The
very difficulties of life, of which we are apt to complain, are converted into
the means of that discipline, that self improvement, which is the great end of
life. …progress is the child of struggle, and struggle is the child of
difficulty.

STRONGER (Faith Hill)

This is the window to my heart
I just want you to be for real
There ain't no freedom where we are
There ain't no wishes in these stars
Ain't no reason to believe

But don't worry baby
Don't you worry
Baby this is what we need
A little bruise and a little bleeding
Some space that we can breathe in
Some silence in between

So cry for me baby
and I'll cry for you
and we'll both break down
and we'll both break through
and find our way to face the truth
We both will be stronger
and we'll lie down in our loneliness
and wake up with our sad regrets
and even though we don't know it yet
We both will be stronger
We both will be stronger
I can't believe you're really gone, now
but I know it's for the best
And I know that we weren't right
but I still reach for you each night
and man, that hurts like hell

So cry for me baby
and I'll cry for you
and we'll both break down
and we'll both break through
and find our way to face the truth
We both will be stronger
and we'll lie down in our loneliness
and wake up with our sad regrets
and even though we don't know it yet
We both will be stronger
We both will be stronger

This is the window to my heart
I just want us to be for real
Baby i'm sorry for the way things are
Goodbye is always hard
But we both will be stronger

 

SWITCHFOOT - This Is Home lyrics

 

I've
got my memories
They're always
Inside of me
But I can't go back
Back to how it was
I believe now
I've come too far
No I can't go back
Back to how it was
Created for a place
I've never known

Chorus:
This is home
Now I'm finally
Where I belong
Where I belong
Yeah, this is home
I've been searching
For a place of my own
Now I've found it
Maybe this is home
Yeah, this is home

Belief over misery
I've seen the enemy
And I won't go back

Back to how it was
And I got my heart
Set on
What happens next
I got my eyes wide
It's not over yet
We are miracles
And we're not alone

(Chorus)

And now after all
My searching
After all my questions
I'm gonna call it home
I got a brand new mindset
I can finally see
The sunset
I'm gonna call it home

(Chorus)

Now I know
Yeah, this is home

I've come too far
Now I won't go back
This is home
