When I get down about the mouth and need encouragement (which is quite often these days), I find myself turning to the last episodes of Gilmore Girls. Rory has graduated from college with a journalism degree but without a job. She turns down a proposal from her boyfriend and is in general emotional disarray. Lorelai is helping her move out of her apartment, and Rory is lamenting the loss of her boyfriend and the avocado tree he’d promised her, should they have gotten married. Rory finally sighs, stands up, and says, “I think I’ll get my own avocado tree.” And Lorelai smiles, and says, “See? Point is, you can have anything you want.”
You can have anything you want.
Just gotta work hard. Have faith. You want it? Go get it.
Anything at all.
