Maturity is learning how to manage your feelings. Don’t be ruled by your emotions. And ever be mindful of your thoughts. Thoughts lead to actions. Actions become habits. And habits are hard to break. Surround yourself with people who are patient, diligent and encouraging. Take it from me. Wallowing in self pity isn’t going to make your situation any better. It’ll just keep people from wanting to be around you. Do not put so much focus on where you’re not. Learn to be thankful with where you are, and how far you’ve come. Remember, the race isn’t given to the swift or strong, but the one who endures. Push past your pain. Be the light in the darkness. Don’t let your emotions rule you. I’ve gotten to a place where I’m choosing to stay thankful despite the difficulties of life. I am no longer making the time nor giving my energy to people who sit and sulk all day. I’ve traveled a long way just to find what was already within me. Joy.
“Your nose is so cute.”
“I like the shape of your eyelashes cause they remind me of doves wings.”
“There’s something to be said about the way your lip quivers when you kiss me.”
“My sweetest joy is looking at you when you think no one is paying you any attention.”
“Your earlobes are sexy.”
“You’re so beautiful. I wish I could wear your face on my face.”
“You smell like my favorite memory.”
“Conversations with you are the equivalent of having a cool glass of lemonade on a warm, sunny day.”
“I wish every time you walked past me time would slow down so I can stare at you longer.”
“I love how when you speak you do so as if in a language only you can understand.”
We are so like children sometimes. Thinking the present will be great because the packaging is pretty. But sometimes you open that great big box with the pretty wrapping paper and beautiful bow on the top, only to find coal inside. Listen to your instincts. Investigate the fruit first. Pretty on the outside doesn’t mean substance on the inside. Be careful, lest your eyes deceive you.
Earth. Fire. Air. Water. Avatar Aang accomplished many remarkable things in his life, but sadly his time in this world came to an end. And like the cycle of the seasons, the cycle of the Avatar began anew.
Being destined for greatness means you will lose some good things along the way, but not to worry. It’s only making room for the great things that will stay.

Marvel is excited to announce an all-new era for the God of Thunder in brand new series, THOR, written by Jason Aaron (Thor: God of Thunder, Original Sin) complimented with art from Russell Dauterman (Cyclops).
This October, Marvel Comics evolves once again in one of the most shocking and exciting changes ever to shake one of Marvel’s “big three” – Captain American, Iron Man and Thor – Marvel Comics will be introducing an all-new THOR, GOD OF THUNDER. No longer is the classic male hero able to hold the mighty hammer, Mjölnir, a brand new female hero will emerge will who will be worthy of the name THOR. Who is she? Where did she come from and what is her connection to Asgard and the Marvel Universe?
“The inscription on Thor’s hammer reads ‘Whosoever holds this hammer, if HE be worthy, shall possess the power of Thor.’ Well it’s time to update that inscription,” says Marvel editor Wil Moss. “The new Thor continues Marvel’s proud tradition of strong female characters like Captain Marvel, Storm, Black Widow and more. And this new Thor isn’t a temporary female substitute - she’s now the one and only Thor, and she is worthy!”
I think it’s silly when people say they’re striving for perfection. Why would you strive for something you weren’t created to be? One of the wonderful things about being human is coming to the understanding that you’ll never stop growing, or stop learning about yourself and the world around you. There aren’t any plateaus in life. And why would you want to be perfect anyhow? Having all the answers discourages learning. I, for one, am striving for balance. I live in the hopes of becoming a more well rounded individual as life inevitably moves forward. I never want to reach a place where arrogance makes me feel like I can do without learning. The interesting thing is that as I grow in experience and age, I don’t feel wiser, I feel dumber. The more I learn about myself, the more I realize I haven’t the slightest clue what I’m doing. The more I learn about people, the more I feel like I don’t understand them. The more I learn about life, the more I begin to understand just how much further I have to go. So I focus on doing the best I can with what grace has given me and try to lead a life of compassion, humility and patience. I am not perfect, nor can I ever be. And I will never understand the logic of imperfect people who endlessly search for it.
