Through the dark sky.

August 4, 2009

A very good friend of mine just put this photo up in her facebook album. She's basically my mentor and regardless of things that happen in the course of our friendship, she's one of the strongest backbones I have. She has given me a thousand pieces of advice over the past four years and I think this one is just another one of her golden nuggets of wisdom.
It's really easy to get bogged down in the everyday, in the minute, scary details, that at times seem to control our every thought. But then, in the midst of the rain, the sun peeks out through the dark grey clouds. Or you get to skype with two of your best friends and they tell you that they're proud. Or you go up 5 points on your LSAT. Sometimes it's not easy. A lot of times it's not easy, but there's no reason to be a debbie-downer. Being pessimistic isn't going to get you anywhere. I know this quote has been around for ages, but today when my roommate said it, it meant something different, something other than it has the past times I've heard it. "Insanity. Doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results (Thanks Einstein)." It means something completely different to everyone, but when Lacy said it today it kind of took me off guard and shook me a little bit. It's like she spoke those words directly to my heart and my thoughts and made me really evaluate things. And, at the end of the day, being optimistic about all those things may just be my sun through the dark sky.
