I'm sitting at work, observing a patient who has schizophrenia. He's a very nice gentleman, and he talks to himself a lot. Earlier, I overheard him say what I thought was the portugues word for darkness. He probably was saying something else. I don't think he speaks portugues. But it got me thinking about this day and the past year simultaneously.
This day I woke up and it was snowing. It was dark and dreary outside as I drove to work and it made me sad. Oh I'm longing for Spring. And light. Light all the time. I want to wake up early to the sun and go to bed late with it as well.
This year had so many dark moments. A friend once said that I'm an extremely positive person. But not to a fault. I think I can realize the positives AND the negatives of a situation and be appreciative of both.
I think there's something important about embracing dark moments for what they are. Not to be taken over by them, but to acknowledge their existence and perhaps even purpose in our development.
Yes, I said I thought darkness was important. I do. Just as I believe light is important. Darkness is not a bad thing. Just different.

Ás vezes esqueço que sou ligado a tudo

Guys, I tweet. I forgot about that.


Git at me.

Si mesmo

Sometimes you will find yourself reading a blog and you will have the following thought process:
1. this person is super full of themselves--how many selfies can you take of yourself??
2. why the hell am i looking at this blog???
3. oh shoot.
4. i can't believe i wasted minutes of my life reading that thing, when i could have been watching a cool youtube video (when i really should have been doing homework.)
5. guess i better blog about it. (when i should be doing homework)
6. and post a selfie of me doing what i wish i was doing right now.

às vezes, sua alma precisa apenas de uma limpeza pouco

Sometimes you need a little cleansing. Souls need it. And I needed it today.
I forgot about so many things backed up in my head and on my hard drive, and it was good to say goodbye to them. It feels good to be done. To press DELETE and not look back.

I sat in church yesterday and I listened to a man who knew that God loved him. I love listening to people talk about their personal relationships with God. It's sacred and you rarely get to be in the same room to hear such sincerity. I'm glad it happened yesterday and I'm glad I was there to hear it. It reinstated some faith in the conversion process. It still happens and it's still powerful.

Just love this boy so much please.
