Wisdom From My Teenage Years

August 13, 2011 Leave a comment

One of the reasons that I enjoy the chaos associated with moving is that I get to unearth some of the relics of my past that have gone untouched for months or years. Although I should probably focusing my time on putting things where they belong, I decided to read through an old journal of sorts that I kept when I was in high school. I never kept much of a daily journal, but I would write poems and quotes (I had a separate folder for all of my “inventions”). Anyway, I was looking through some of my old quotes and I was struck by one of them:


Women TRULY are miracles of God. And like most miracles:

  1. They cannot be understood
  2. They can’t be explained
  3. There is no human logic behind them
  4. Those who get them rarely deserve them.


I could take a few paragraphs and run through my assessment of this quote (over a decade later), but I think sometimes less is more. Besides, I want to hear your thoughts…

Chris West at USNA

Here is a link to the download if you want to check it out (about 90mb and 90 minutes long).

(note: the first voice you hear is the priest saying an opening prayer, Chris starts right after that)

also, while I still have space (over a GB), here is the link to the full video…

To every woman I have ever know, and all the women that I haven’t:

There is a huge poverty of self respect these days, especially in women. Admittedly, that’s largely due to the fact that we men have been doing a horrible job of affirming the women in our lives. It also doesn’t really help that our society today defines beauty by a set of dimensions and symmetrical facial features. It seems to me that very few women these days realize that they’re beautiful. Of those that do, it seems that even fewer recognize their beauty as something deeper than their physical qualities

So for what ever little worth my input may be in your life, I just want you to know that you are BEAUTIFUL. Read more…
