Mind Over Matter, Instead Of Matter Over Mind

Finding beauty and power in a place where told there's none… Well, we have mind over matter, instead of matter over mind.

Mind Over Matter, Instead Of Matter Over Mind

We live— moving forward, never-ending, racing time. We laugh—never knowing, we'll forget most of the punch lines. Some memories can't make it through the tests of time.

Some smiles never make it past, the second lie, though we try. And every day, is lived in one life, and you can run, but can't escape, and you can't hide— the power. The power of the mind…

The world goes on and people change, but some will claim they stayed the same, yet they have dropped the dice. Perception plays a funny game, deceiving truth and placing blame, but never on its lies.

And memories, they fade to light, and every day goes onto night, and soon, the life is lived. Burned, ashamed, and pointing fingers, never knowing whose the winner… though saying it won't matter who wins. Mind over matter.

Different eyes hold different wounds, just as night holds different moons, and minds their memories. Some of us look back in time and wish the past came to life, but that destroys the story.

And others cry because they hurt, and wish the mind could burn past words, but that can change your life. Through different battles, time, and change, the thoughts that our minds keep the same, oh we have mind over matter.

If we all think of what we want, and not because it's right or wrong, we can achieve the goal. It's all in the head—your power and essence. It's all the mind—your story, your life.

What we choose to remember, holds importance to our lives. What we choose to work hard for represents the good fight. Finding beauty and power in a place where told there's none… Well, we have mind over matter, instead of matter over mind…

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
