"It generally takes 40 days to change a habit; 90 days to confirm the change; 120 days before the change is a part of who you are and 1,000 days before you are able to master the change."

I can’t believe I really got my shit together. I used to say I will never get better. Kudos to myself for doing it all by myself.

that all of these years have slipped past and i’ve become nothing. i’ve pushed everyone and everything away, insofar that i am completely without any attachments. i’m not worth having a connection with. i don’t know how to change these loses or mend things that have long since dissolved. sometimes, i wish that i had managed to evaporate in a more literal way.

"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain."

"Stop trying to ‘get it together’. The biggest lie we’re told when we’re growing up is that soon as we’re adults, as soon as we’re in college, finish college, get that job, have that steady income, find that someone special, ‘find ourselves’, find that perfect house, get that retirement fund, have those children, everything will fall into place. Here’s a secret: it won’t. Every new development in your life, good or bad, big or small, will come with its own very special set of challenges. The sooner you accept that, the better off you’ll be."
