i'm good!

I'm not really sure I had an old one, but still...

My new mantra seems to be, "I'll survive". It's actually been quite a powerful reminder to me lately, that no matter what happens, be it in college, my interpersonal relationships, or my own mind, it will not negate my existence. My life will continue, and I will hopefully continue to learn and grow from whatever it is that comes my way. It really helps me regain my calm in times of stress as well. Looking back, it always has before as well. What the thinker thinks, the prover proves, and if I think I'm going to make it, I'll be damned sure to make it happen that way. I think it's a great amount of meaning packed tightly into just a few words.

And it makes my David Bowie poster, promoting the release of his single "Survive", eerily appropriate as a reminder.
