Words of Wisdom From Carrie Fisher

Wednesday, December 28, 2016
Is 2016 even real?


While I am not a big fan of the Star Wars franchise, even I know who Princess Leia is.
I didn't even know she passed away because I was too busy with my family during Christmas. It wasn't until much later when my friends began discussing her death in Whatsapp that I even found out about it. 

I began reading about Carrie Fisher and can see how she managed to leave a deep mark in some people's lives.

She's iconic and a badass after all. 

I'm also probably a little late to the game but I'd like to share some wonderful words of wisdom she has shared with us while she was still here. 
In my opinion, a problem derails your life and an inconvenience is not being able to get a nice seat on the un-derailed train.
“Resentment is like drinking poison and waiting for the other person to die. ”  
“If my life wasn’t funny it would just be true, and that is unacceptable.” 
“Sometimes you can only find Heaven by slowly backing away from Hell.” 
 
“I feel I’m very sane about how crazy I am.” 
“And when you’re young you want to fit in. Hell, I still want to fit in with certain humans, but as you get older you get a little more discriminating.” 
 

“You know the bad thing about being a survivor… You keep having to get into difficult situations in order to show off your gift.”
 

“There is no point at which you can say, ‘Well, I’m successful now. I might as well take a nap.” 
 
“No motive is pure. No one is good or bad-but a hearty mix of both. And sometimes life actually gives to you by taking away.”
