Appreciate Now, Complain Later

"When I was in my thirties I had these little square hips left over from being pregnant and I just hated it. I kept thinking, ‘All those years before, I had a perfect glamour-girl body, and I didn’t spend one minute appreciating it because I thought my nose had a bump in it.’ And now that I’m old, my shoulder hurts and I don’t sleep good and my knuckles swell up, and I think, ‘All those years in my thirties and forties I had a body where everything worked perfect. And I didn’t spend on minute appreciating it because I thought I had square hips.’" 

- Alice Greer in "Pigs in Heaven" by Barbara Kingsolver


The Snow Ball

Tip for college #1: Go to the dumb-sounding activities that your school puts on - most of the time, it can actually be a lot of fun! Especially if you go in thinking that you'll have fun.
