Of Love & Learning on this St Patty's Day

I could apologize for being a blogging slacker because of my inconsistent-slash-boring posts, or the like...

But I won't. Because we all knew coming into this that I am a busy little soul who can't make time to record all the things that are happening and all the bajillion thoughts that pass through my head everyday. We also knew that this would be a challenge for me--an important goal to work toward, if you will. So here I am, taking the baby steps (What About Bob shout out) to make my goal happen. If you're still reading this, I thank you for being patient with me as I work to overcome this particular weakness of mine (aka recording my life and thoughts).

Here's a little something for your philosophical pallet to chew on:

Laziness and fear are the antithesis of love and progression.
Love = the act of extending oneself (courage, hard work)

We were discussing these thoughts from Scott Peck and Immanuel Kant in my Humanities class awhile back and I can't get them out of my head. The principles are so simple and so true. When I remember this I realize how selfish I am a lot of the time and I wonder how many times I have missed opportunities to reach out because I was lazy or afraid. Behold, another weakness I'm trying to overcome.

The list of my weaknesses is long, you see, but I've come to understand that this life is all about growing. We're here to progress and learn from our weaknesses and mistakes. I love that we CAN do that. It's a beautiful thing, I tell you. Have a happy St Patrick's Day :)
