Wordy Wednesday: 2016

image

I love the New Year. Besides being an excuse to get drunk and kiss a stranger, it’s an artificial but impactful incentive to start fresh. While it’s easy to hope for a better year, the way my 2015 is ending reassures me that 2016 isn’t going to be just another year, and I can’t wait to see what it holds for me.

“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”

“You must be the change you wish to see in the world.”

“If there is no struggle, there is no progress.”

“If you do not change direction, you may end up where you are heading.”

– Lao Tzu

“For the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: ‘If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?’ And whenever the answer has been ‘No’ for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

– Steve Jobs

“I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.”

“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”

– Andy Warhol

“Excuses change nothing, but make everyone feel better.”

– Mason Cooley

“It may be hard for an egg to turn into a bird: it would be a jolly sight harder for it to learn to fly while remaining an egg. We are like eggs at present. And you cannot go on indefinitely being just an ordinary, decent egg. We must be hatched or go bad.”

– C. S. Lewis

“I have noticed even people who claim everything is predestined, and that we can do nothing to change it, look before they cross the road.”

“Change the changeable, accept the unchangeable, and remove yourself from the unacceptable.”

– Denis Waitley

“If you want to change attitudes, start with a change in behavior.”

“The changes in our life must come from the impossibility to live otherwise than according to the demands of our conscience not from our mental resolution to try a new form of life.”

– Leo Tolstoy

“Change before you have to.”

  • Shake shack opened a location near my apartment so I’m just looking at my feet while I can still see them before I gain the inevitable 90 lbs
  • Tbt to the time I searched every floor of union station for a Cinnabon then ended up paying $9 for the most disgusting steak and cheese I’ve ever encountered
  • Is it really Veterans Day if you don’t post a granddaddy pic? It’s easy to get wrapped up in feel good quotes and talking points on Veterans Day — and there’s nothing wrong with that. It’s a day we set aside to celebrate the men and women that decided to put service above self. But if we’re truly going to honor service and sacrifice, we don’t stop at what feels good or what’s easy to talk about — we address veteran homelessness, veteran suicide, post deployment reintegration, VA reform — and most importantly we resist unnecessary war that puts our troops in unnecessary danger. Thank you for coming to my ted talk.
  • My sandwich a lil ugly just like me 😛
  • You, an idiot and a plebe: divided by politics

  • No matter what happens tonight, I don’t have to listen to/watch political ads for another year and a half and that’s something to drink to
  • I feel like God makes sure to plop a good sunset in front of me at least once a week so I don’t go postal
