I want nothing more than to be better than I was yesterday

Keywords: {0}

Once you realize everything is temporary then it’s easier to let things go. Once you trust fully in the love and light, the plan the universe and yourself have conspired for you; you understand that everything is as it should be. Today, as it should be, tomorrow, as it should be, forever, as it should be. Realize that sometimes, the only one holding you back is you. The sun comes up no matter how many lives were lost the night before, the moon still shines no matter how many scars you’ve endured. The world doesn’t stop, and neither will I.

I want to say what the other person needs me to say in that moment

I have often thought about my communication with others, verbally and non-verbally. When I smiled at the person in the grocery store, how did it effect that person? What was on their minds at that time when a stranger smiled a goofy smile at them? Or when I engage in conversation with one person, am I giving good advice, helping, or would just listening be the better action in this moment? I am often reminded of the finality of the end of our lives. With having cancer, that threat of an earlier death than I had anticipated has brought me to a place in my life where I am reflecting on my impact in society.

I want this house to be a place for everyone who stays with us — family and friends — where they are surrounded by safety and love

[This home is a] reflection of the community of wonderful, wonderful humans I have known throughout my life. At some point, I will bring this community full circle with a gathering. And hope that new friendships will begin between them.

I’m starting to think I want to have a daughter someday

Keywords: {0}

Somehow this reminds me of our connection to God, whoever that may be. I nurture my puppy, and she nurtures me. God nurtures me, so I can nurture my puppy. And I please God by doing good deeds and loving others. Love is what connects us all to one another, and love is that feeling of happiness when you discover how much that person or dog’s existence means to you. Someone once explained to me: perfect circles don’t exist in nature, but we know that they exist. In the same way, there must be a perfect version of a person, and the journey of becoming closer to that person, or God, is what life is for. That made a lot of sense to me.
