People don't understand why I try so hard in school. It's because it is the only thing that makes me feel good enough. When all else fails, I know I still have my education. I'm going to succeed because I'm crazy enough to think I can!
Slow down. We're often rushing to "do stuff"; to "get things done." But life is not primarily a to-do list, even if there things that need to get done. A priest friend told me about a seminary buddy who remarked, "if all you do is do, you'll get doo doo."
