quotes, note to self (keep up the good work!)

Now I used to really enjoy analyzing every aspect of myself or self-congratulating for great deeds. I liked to check up on other ppl’s facebook profiles to see what they were doing. However, the past couple of months have shown me that interacting with people, being deliberate and thinking are the way to go. Action supersedes words. I don’t want this to be self-praise, but merely a recognition and a gentle reminder for the scared me that you’ve done a lot, keep up the good work and there’s plenty of road to go:
full time job, part time job, 2 good classes, made new friends, talked to friends of friends, became more confident, and now learning to deal with stress by not giving into the rolling into a ball thing/eating carbs. The only way to overcome anxiety is to successfully calm yourself 10,000 times. That means choosing to not give into the stress in less than productive ways that many times:

“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.” Viktor Frankl
