embrace the uncertainty.

stay reminded of how fragile life can be. learn to appreciate what you have, rather than what you think you need. realize that we are all in this together. realize that unparalled beauty comes out of unparalled devastation.

realize there is no one to blame.

"the only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty; not knowing what comes next."

this weekend was exactly what i needed.

saturday i spent the afternoon at anna's drinking a big cup of coffee and spilling out things i didn't even know i needed to say. after a short run, amanda and i met for a beer and then grilled out with a bunch of her friends.

i had forgotten the importance of relaxing and blowing things off and writing in my journal and drinking mugs of chai without my laptop in front of me.
