Wishing for Some Magic
Why is it that when things are not going well and the chosen coping strategy is taking your mind off things (also known as ignoring the situation) and hoping it will get better/go away, the only outcome seems to be things getting worse?
Why can’t things magically get better instead? That would be so much nicer for everyone, don’t you think?
Life is the art of drawing without an eraser.
Even a happy life cannot be without a measure of darkness, and the word happy would lose its meaning if it were not balanced by sadness. It is far better take things as they come along with patience and equanimity.
The least of things with a meaning is worth more in life than the greatest of things without it.
Something to be mindful about.

I love this for so many reasons. It sounds cold at first glance, but I don’t read it that way at all. I think it’s something that women should be taught from the time they’re little girls rather than the fairy tale “Prince Charming” crap we regurgitate and force down their throats. The truth is you don’t need someone to save you…no one can build a world for you to be happy in except for YOU.
Instead of worrying about finding your soul mate, go out and find your passion. Get an education or say to hell with school and gain some life experience. Get a job you hate then quit it, take 15 more jobs you hate and leave them all until you find the one that makes you set your alarm clock an hour early because you can’t wait to go in. Travel. Try new things. Get hurt and then pick yourself up again. Make mistakes and learn from them. Discover your flaws and find a way to turn them into strengths. Tell the truth, even if it could cost you everything. Ask for and give forgiveness. Build a circle of friends you can lean on and trust but also spend an uncomfortable period of time alone…enough so that you’re forced to hear your own heart without the distraction and influence of other people. Build the world you want to exist in first, then find someone to join you there.
This is AMAZING

All the important things in life
Pain is a part of life. Sometimes it’s a big part, and sometimes it isn’t, but either way, it’s a part of the big puzzle, the deep music, the great game. Pain does two things: It teaches you, tells you that you’re alive. Then it passes away and leaves you changed. It leaves you wiser, sometimes. Sometimes it leaves you stronger. Either way, pain leaves its mark, and everything important that will ever happen to you in life is going to involve it in one degree or another.
