Work and Education

My goals. My entire life I plan on working hard and I plan to never stop learning. Simply put, I love this life. I love Provo, the green trees and its weather. I have a feeling like I'll love Aspen Grove and the summer time. I love my roommates. I am so grateful for this great stretch of endless possibilities in front of me. Then there is love. Life being unpredictable as it is, love comes and goes like a fine wind. Enveloping and then breezing away. Sometimes the best kind stays a lifetime and then into the eternities. That my friends is what I working on. I'm learning working and loving. I don't want this to end. And it never will. The trials we face are there for our strength and improvement, that man above knows exactly what he is doing. Never forget that. Stick to your goals.

Slowly but it's happening.

Now and then I get ahead of myself. Then I breath and remember I've got plenty of time on my hands.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars
you have a right to be here
and whether or not it is clear to you
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should
therefore be at peace with God
whatever you conceive him to be
and whatever your labors and aspirations
in the noisy confusion of life
keep peace with your soul
with all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams
it is still a beautiful world.

And then we lived like Lions.

Oh to be the king of the world. Laying here hindered by my own body makes me think. We are all hindered in one way or another but that is the catch. Yes, who cares? We can still do it all. Once you decided to rule your own life, you become king. No one can have control over your mind. You rule domain, never give it up. Simply put by James Barrie, "To be happy, don't do whatever you like, like whatever you do." So here we are, mired by gravity and yet there is hope. Strong hope, a knowledge that everything will be okay.
