"I think if I’ve learned anything about friendship, it’s to hang in, stay connected, fight for them, and let them fight for you. Don’t walk away, don’t be distracted, don’t be too busy or tired, don’t take them for granted. Friends are part of the glue that holds life and faith together. Powerful stuff."
"Even though we’ve changed and we’re all finding our own place in the world, we all know that when the tears fall or the smile spreads across our face, we’ll come to each other because no matter where this crazy world takes us, nothing will ever change so much to the point where we’re not all still friends."
"I was thinking how I keep waiting for life to get easier. You know, lower stakes, less risk, more reward, easier. And I was thinking that maybe it doesn’t. I was thinking that maybe the struggle, the climb, the one obstacle after another. Maybe that’s just life. And you’d think that that would be a depressing thought that there’s no end to all of the, I don’t know…. that it doesn’t get easier, that it just gets different. But it’s not. It is not. It’s the opposite of depressing. There’s a relief in it. Life is complex. There’s nothing simple or easy about it. So I can stop waiting for it to, I can stop waiting. And I can just live"
