but most importantly i learned: that my Savior takes away all pain; that it's ok to admit that you can't handle something; to let Jesus take the wheel; sometimes you need to throw all your plans out the window and hope that the Lord knows where you are supposed to go; building up expectations is the best way the get disappointed; you don't have to be like anyone except yourself; those pint-sized ice creams are the best invention ever; watching six seasons of Criminal Minds during the summer is acceptable; you never know where life will lead you; expect the unexpected; keep your heart open and your head clear; communication is key to a good relationship; what doesn't kill you makes you stronger; there is no room for excuses; your family will give you good advice; it's ok to go out on a limb for love; no risk, no gain. know risk, know gain.
