Confession: I saw the new Star Wars movie less than 24 hours after it was released. There were several awesome lines in the movie that made me laugh, but “Droid, please” was my favorite.

I was playing around with the design templates for the journals and decided to make a very insignificant journal with a quote from Aesop that really rings true for me:
Our insignificance is often the cause of our safety
It’s so true… What can possibly go wrong? There’s no one decision you can make that will “ruin everything.” In the face of overwhelming ANYTHING, just do it. Just get it done. Just get out of the feeling of overwhelmedness because it’s always caused by inflated feelings of importance which simply aren’t true. The truth is that you really don’t matter much. None of us do, we are but tiny specks in the universe. We aren’t here to obsess over mundane details of life like “Who should I marry” and “Should I get a different job.” We’re just here and since that’s the case, we might as well relax.
Kids don’t learn best sitting at desks and being spoon-fed information. Kids learn best when they’re interested, engaged and exploring their world. This is a quote from Fred Rogers. Also known as Mr Rogers from the 1970’s TV show, Mr Rogers was a great guy who understood the importance of make-believe in children’s educational development.
Tis the season to toss around bible quotes like they’re going out of style, but some are so eloquent that they’ll never go out of style. Like Ezekiel 23 19:21 which technically states “Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt. For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.” but I thought it would be funnier if I replaced the word “issue” with the word dick because that’s what they mean (Fun fact: That’s how biblical translations work)
