“Have you learned the lessons only of those who admired you, and were tender with you, and stood aside for you? Have you not learned great lessons from those who braced themselves against you, and disputed passage with you?”—Walt Whitman
“So I guess what I’m trying to say is this is my letter of resignation to the way I’ve been living and my official declaration to rejoin the fight. Maybe it’s a little too late, but I’m going to seize the rest of my days here for what they’re worth. I’m going to miss the crap out of my friends when they leave for a weekend. I’m going to hold onto their ankles while they try to walk out of my life and cry when they shake me loose and shut the door. I’m going to take risks, maybe take a girl on a date, kiss her, and not apologize for it. Then I’ll go home and pray or read the Bible or just watch an episode of Happy Endings without ever touching my stupid phone. I’ll turn the danged thing off when I go to the river. I will go to the river. I’ll take off my shirt at the river, and maybe even jump in despite my extreme dislike of cold water. I will realize that all good things don’t just happen on their own, that I need to get out there and make them happen. I will accept the fact that I am going to lose people for whatever reason and that I may only be in this place for a little while longer without letting it dictate my life and the way I live, or maybe let it influence me to embrace what I have while it lasts. I will love you. I will love myself. I will love my life, day by ever-loving day.”—sometimes you write a blog, read it almost five months later, then realize exactly why your life has been the way it’s been for the past five months
