hurt + confusion

I just saw this conversation on a friend’s blog:

“Me: I don’t think I am leaving much of a mark on OBU.
Mom: You’re not supposed to. You are supposed to let what you learned at OBU leave a mark on you so that you can go leave a mark on the world. So what would you rather do–leave a mark on Arkadelphia, or leave a mark on the world?”


She’s right — it’s much too easy to forget that. And it’s so hard sometimes to remember why I’m here.

  1. Leaving a mark on the world is very important. Your Mom is right and sounds like a very smart person.
