I've decided to move to San Antonio in hopes that there is more opportunity for me there. I have someone to stay with while I look for a job, but it's still going to be lonely. This is the first time I will have lived in an unfamiliar city with no friends or boyfriend to rely on. This is all me. And I'm incredibly nervous. The good thing is that my family will only be about 3 1/2 hours away, but I will still miss them.
Choices and decisions have been on my mind a lot. They are scary things. What if I make the wrong choice? What if things go horribly? What if, what if, what if....
I've found a few gems of knowledge to share with you here. Also, some photos I took today at the lily pond.
"It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities."
"The sea does not reward those who are too anxious, too greedy, or too impatient. To dig for treasures shows not only impatience and greed, but lack of faith. Patience, patience, patience, is what the sea teaches. Patience and faith."
~ Anne Morrow Lindbergh
"To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence you hear the truth and know the solutions."
~ Deepak Chopra
"Choice by choice, moment by moment, I build the necklace of my day, stringing together the choices that form artful living."
~ Julia Cameron
"At some point your heart will tell itself what to do."
~ Achaan Chah
