"I sit before flowers
hoping they will train me in the art
of opening up
I stand on mountain tops believing
that avalanches will teach me to let go
but I am here to learn."

How to Study Like a Harvard Student →
Taken from Sophia Chua-Rubenfeld, daughter of the Tiger Mother
1. Choose classes that interest you. That way studying doesn’t feel like slave labor. If you don’t want to learn, then I can’t help you.
2. Make some friends. See steps 12, 13, 23, 24.
This is the right stuff.
"Put simply, envy is when you resent God’s goodness in other people’s lives and ignore God’s goodness in your own life."

Take my heart and every single thing and burn
The ashes and paper and dust and sediments
That have settled over and weighed me down
Scoop up the mud and silt and dirt and start
To to pour your living waters over the hardened clay and mold
That which has stagnated into pliable beauty and strength
I need You
And I find myself coming back to that -
I will always need You
You are my breath and hope and song
The tendons and fibres and strength that keep my heart pumping with
Fire, love, passion, desire
My heart beats with power and the glory of Christ in my veins
And I cannot live as anything else anymore.
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
