If I drink it, maybe it will make me more poignant

“It is not the stongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” — Charles Darwin

I found that quote on the underside on my Peach Oo-La-Long Honest Tea. I think it’s one of the best things I’ve ever heard from a drink. 

I’ve been thinking about comfort lately.  Not so much in my life, but in the lives of those around me.  It’s so easy to get comfortable in situations that suck.  It’s easy to sit down and ride out the storm rather than work to change it.  Hiding under the bed is much easier than fighting to keep your footing.  Staying is almost always easier than leaving. 

In the end, we’ve got to learn that fighting for our own happiness, sanity and survival is always the best course of action, regardless of how cozy the current situation might be.
