seasonal Happy 2013 Everyone!
The last few days have been a bit of an argument with myself to stop hating my own situation back in Sydney. I think today symbolised me getting out of it. I got up and did things like I usually do. There is a large part of me that feels jealousy for money, for rewards, for prestige of being able to actually graduate from university, but alas, I must perservere.
I desperately want to buy clothes, makeup, and things that I need without feeling guilty about spending money. I want to stop looking so frumpy all the time. I really don’t like worrying about money.
Fall seven times, stand up eight. ~Japanese Proverb
If one dream should fall and break into a thousand pieces, never be afraid to pick one of those pieces up and begin again. ~Flavia Weedn, Flavia and the Dream Maker
When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt
I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday. ~Author Unknown
I am reminded that although I am jealous of those around me, I actually have worked out, and been rewarded for it. I just need to keep going now.
1. knowledge that hard work is rewarded, even if it takes a little bit longer then I would like
2. I have a lovely family and support system around me
3. I am largely a stranger to heartbreak and worry
