And during that special phone call he said something that was so very moving to me that I wrote it on a post-it note and put it on the inside of my door, so that I would see it every time I left my dorm room - and every time I returned. Actually, I think that same post-it is in one of my picture albums now... without further aideu, this is what he said:
"You are not a rock, and that's okay."
It's okay to question what you want in life, it's okay to be frustrated with your current work milieu, it's okay to be afraid of change, it's okay to sleep on other people's couches. It's okay.
That's your free advice for today. My friend is a genius.
This was the very first quote that started my special quote board that stayed up the whole time that I was in nursing school... other special quotes included:
"Your farts sing."
"My Sister is skinny, smart and beautiful."
