What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:26
Sometimes when life is hard for REALLY REALLY long and then it gets good all the sudden I think I am afraid to feel joy. I wake up every morning surprised that I am happy the sun is out and I can sing and laugh and live.
Wake up with Wake Up Iowa City coffee (who also is placed in the most awesome clothing boutique and has a juice bar.)
And embrace waking up at 6AM everyday, having homework and getting to learn, being able to push yourself and become a better person, helping those around you, sharing love and giving, and drinking crappy coffee BECAUSE at least you have some coffee.
And all of this is so much better than not living at all.
