Looking Up

In this moment, I stand, or lay since I'm lying down, completely shocked and awed at how amazing and wonderful the last few months have been. I really am so, so fortunate. And I'm sooo excited to see everything that is to come. And really, I just want to remember this feeling forever. How often do you get to feel ok? Because I feel totally ok. Well... luckily more than that.

I feel like I'm the type of guy that suddenly becomes more spiritual when I really want something. "Lord, help me get this job/internship/other desired outcome." "Hail Mary full of grace, please bless my bank account". At these times I find I act like God is Santa Claus or a fairy godmother. And even, I begin to bargain my attention in order to get what I want. And--these feelings are so clear on my mind because there is something I especially want right now and I'm already planning my church schedule.
I'm thinking to myself, and thinking to myself all the times I made it out of unfavorable situations and how I am perfectly healthy and surviving right now. Isn't that enough to want. "Thou shall not want--he maketh me lie down in green pastures". This is all to say, it's gonna be OK Miguel. My biggest wow about the last few post college months is how seamlessly opportunity and good things have come. I feel terrific. And that is the truth. (Maybe it is the lack of homework) haha. I must be more reverent.
To God, thanks for letting me make totally selfish requests, yet refraining from striking me down. I'm sure the requests are going to keep rolling in for the rest of my life. "I want this, or for this to happen". Remind me to allow my spirit of gratitude to counterbalance my spirit of want. I really have so, so much.

A Psalm of David. 
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: 
He leadeth me beside the still waters. 
He restoreth my soul: //
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: 
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

I probs need to acquire some new guy friends ya'll. *nerves* haha
...but for real. Pretty sure there are enough guys in the building to fit on one hand alone. Sometimes, you just have got to relate testosterone to testosterone. I am ridiculous, I realize. Just a thought for the universe to take hold. Free shipping's ok.

In the mean time I managed to run away to Washington for the (massive) weekend. No pictures, but alot of relaxation, eating, and running errands. Honestly, I'm so lucky to be able to go. Nothing like taking in a big gulp of air and it not being New York. However, it is always good to be back. --And I am so ready for the week. I believe. Hello Wednesday.

A few weeks ago, I mentioned how impressed I am discovering all the things I would like to do and become good at doing throughout the rest of my life. Most of my predicament has been to decide which of these feelings are the truest. Should I pick a specific order to try them out, how many days/months/years should I give to each? Essentially, what is my destiny.
I stopped at Barnes and Noble searching for gift ideas for Jane and came across a Vincent van Gogh quote written on a soap sleeve:
“Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.”
Perhaps we aren't made to limit ourselves.  I probably limit to make things more manageable, easier to wrap my mind around. The potential...who knows.

While on the note of Barnes and Noble, I would kindly suggest the book responsible for my affection for van Gogh, A Lust for Life. It was a required book at St John's, but it's one I won't forget. Extremely descriptive, a little romantic even, and something to pass the time on the subway. I mean, Candy Crush?
