I wish

I wish I was better at Lindy.
That I didn't forget my steps,
that I always remembered to lift.
I wish that I was a better friend.
That I truly knew exactly what they needed to hear,
and how to phrase it.
I wish these mood battles would go away.

But none of it's gonna happen unless I act.

“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race”

The ONLY thing that's going to get me better at Lindy is to pay closer attention, to focus more and more on being able to make my mind control my body, instead of the other way around. The only way I'm going to be a better friend is if I become a better follower of Christ.

And the only way to survive a mood battle is pray.
