I know today is Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but according to statistics, there will be over 5,000 weddings, 10,000 childbirths, and 42 million hugs occurring today throughout the United States. Also today, there will be at least 4 people that will win the multimillion dollar lotteries, 600 people will get promotions at work, and 3,000 people will lose their virginity. There will also be 600 dogs adopted, 35,000 balloons sold, and 800,000 skittles eaten. Plus, the words “I love you” will be said over 9 million times. So again, I know today is Monday and you assume it’s going to suck, but just smile, because according to statistics, it should actually be a really nice day.
I love the idea of the big life – the life that matters, the life that makes a difference. The life where stuff happens, where people take action. The opposite of the life where the girl can’t even speak to the boy she likes; the opposite of the life where the friends aren’t even good friends, and lots of days are wasted away feeling bored and kind of okay, like nothing matters much.

When I first met her, I knew in a moment I would have to spend the next few days re-arranging my mind so there’d be room for her to stay.

What I find most attractive about endurance sports, whether it be running, biking, or a tough mudder Is not testing my body, instead, testing my will. It is as though my body takes the back seat to a more powerful force beyond the tissue fibers and muscles.

There are only a few things that really belong to me: Who I am, who I was, and who I wanna be.

You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, because no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong.
I think there is something beautiful in reveling in sadness. The proof is how beautiful sad songs can be. So don’t think being sad is to be avoided. It’s apathy and boredom you want to avoid. But feeling anything is good, I think.
