Inspired by every student whose told they can’t be an artist because it doesn’t “make enough money”.

This is literally so inspirational to me right now.

I needed this really badly right now.

Money will not follow you to heaven. Your happiness will.

Go after your dreams…mindfully.

I get this post, but if you don’t address very real financial concerns, you’ll find that most people will quit going after their dreams.

Financial security is important. Going after your dreams is important. Feeling happy is important. At the same time, it’s important to address and be aware of all of these things rather than taking comfort in the protective college bubble that shields us from life and life’s very really problems.

I just went to the doctor and had my insurance cover a procedure. It cost $15. Without insurance a simple 45 minute visit would have cost $600.  What if I didn’t have insurance? What if I didn’t have the money to cover a cost like that?

Follow your dreams, sure. But if your dreams take place in a competitive field where it’s difficult to make money, you better make sure you have a plan. And you’d better make sure it’s a damned good plan.

You want to be a writer? An artist? An actress? Do it. But make sure you’re that type of person that’s a doer,that has grit,  that has a plan, that pulls from a pool strength in times of trouble, that saves up for a rainy day while daring to dream, rather than the type of person that sits at home eating fruit loops bemoaning the fact that they need to pay $600 for a routine procedure and that they are going without.

"The wait itself is a gift of grace. You see, waiting is not only about what you will receive at the end of the wait. Waiting is about what you will become as you wait…Waiting means surrendering your glory. Waiting means submitting to his glory. Waiting means understanding that you were given life and breath for the glory of another. Waiting gives you opportunity to forsake the delusion of your own glory and rest in the God of awesome glory. Only when you do that will you find what you seek, and what you were meant to have: lasting identity, meaning, purpose, and peace in Christ. In this way waiting is is much more than a burden for you to bear; it is a precious gift for you to receive with joy."

For those of you still on the edge of your seat from my polar bear conundrum. I thought to myself: how do polar bears and other animals get stuff off if themselves. To make a long story short I didn’t get a car wash I rubbed my car against a snow drift.

Is there an app that will alert me at the most opportune times to get a car wash in this Michigan winter? My Prius looks like a muddy polar bear. #necessitythemotherofinnovation
