Stopped.


Everyday we get to give the gift of life. It can be painful, it can be terrifying, but in the end it's worth it. Every time. We all have the opportunity to give. maybe the gift is to try and make a simple apology, maybe it's to understand another person's point of view, maybe it's to hold a secret for a friend. The joy supposedly is in the giving, so when the joy is gone, when the giving starts to feel more like a burden, that's when you stop. But if you're like most people I know.
you give till it hurts, and then you give some more.

Arguments


When I am getting ready to reason with a man.
I spend one-third of time thinking about myself and what I am going to say.
and two-thirds thinking about him and what he is going to say..

Expect nothing and accept everything and you will never be disappointed. and punctuality is disappointing if no one is there to appreciate it.

Done well.




Love many things, for therein lies the true strength, and whosoever loves much performs much, and can accomplish much, and what is done in love is done well.

go ahead.

Across the fields




You don’t learn to walk by following rules, you learn by doing, and falling over, and it’s because you fall over that you learn to save yourself from falling over. It’s the greatest thrill in the world and it runs away screaming at the first sight of bullet point.
The balloons only have one life and the only way of finding out whether they work is to attempt to fly around the world.

The jet stream is a very strong force and pushing a balloon into it is like pushing up against a brick wall, but once we got into it, we found that, remarkably, the balloon went whatever speed the wind went.

Scenario.


It doesn't matter how many new haircuts you get, or gyms you join, or how many glasses of chardonnay you drink with your girlfriends... you still go to bed every night going over every detail and wonder what you did wrong or how you could have misunderstood. And how in the hell for that brief moment you could think that you were that happy. And sometimes you can even convince yourself that he'll see the light and show up at your door. And after all that, however long all that may be, you'll go somewhere new. And you'll meet people who make you feel worthwhile again. And little pieces of your soul will finally come back. And all that fuzzy stuff, time of your life that you wasted, that will eventually begin to fade.


I have another scenario for you - I'm in love with you. I apologize for the blunt delivery, but as problematic as this fact may be, I'm in love... with YOU. I'm not feeling this because you're leaving, and not because it feels good to feel this way... which, by the way, it does, or did before you went off like that. I can't figure out the mathematics of this, I just know I love you.

I want to be.


I want to make you happy.I want to be a giving person.I want to make you smile.I want to be the person who can cheer you up when you are blue.I want to hold you when you need me.I want to touch your hair.I want to protect you from everything making you sad.
Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction.I think, love is a choice you make from moment to moment.
sharing the life together is amazing thing.

To those who only believe in chance, creating conditions seems absurd.

Stupid but noble.



We want to know the reason, the secret, the answer at the back of book. Because the thought of our being all alone down here is just too much for us to bear. But at the end of the day, the fact that we show up for each other, in spite of our differences enough to keep believing.

I got hit by a car, what the year I'm having. I guess, this year is the worst year in my 26 years.
Thank you so much friends, your phone call, emials, text, cards, foods, ice cream, I am really lucky person!! will remove stitches Aug 4th. can't wait. will be able to start drinking after that.
Another important big news for me is my 2 years younger sister got pregnant! I am so excited.
I really proud of my sister, having responsibility, fafmily, when I get ready for that?

August is my Birthday month, I have started to making to do list for my 27's.
As usual, will keep saying that "Life is short, times are hard".. I do think life is short and only once. so do everything friends. for the day you die, you wouldn't say "I left to do something, I could do more.." so live with 100% power! Enjoy everything.
I know I am super optimistic person and I like it. run to your life goal, and eveything will be simple trust me, what you do is what you want, no excuse. because that's your choice made.
Please stop complaining daily basis. work, love, friends, all things are happening in your life is the choices you made. If you don't like it, change it. Because you can do it. and that's your life job.
Change is.. we don't like it, we fear it. but we can't stop it from coming. we either adapt to change or we get left behind. It hurts to grow. but sometimes change is good. change is everything.

Forgive and forget





In life, only one thing is certain, apart from death and taxes.No matter how hard you try, no matter how good your intentions, you are going to make mistakes. You are going to hurt people. You are going to get hurt. And if ever want to recover there is really only one thing you can say. Forgive and forget. That's what they say. It's good advice, but it's not very practical.
When someone hurts us. We want to hurt them back. When someone wrongs us, we want to be right. Without forgiveness, old scores are never settled. Old wounds never heal. And the most we can hope for is that one day we will be lucky enought to forget.

Disappintment




Disappointment to a noble soul is what cold water is to burning metal; it strengthens, tempers, intensifies, but never destroys it.

Mistakes




When we resist our fate we suffer, when we accept it we are happy. We have time in abundance and eternity to repeat our mistakes but we need only once to correct our mistake and alas hear the song of enlightenment with which to break the chain of vengeance.

A glass half full




There's something to be said about a glass half full. About knowing when to say when. I think it's a floating line. A barometer of need and desire. It's entirely up to the individual. And depends on what's being poured. Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there's no such thing as enough, the glass is bottomless. And all we want, is more.

Hope is a start. But hope needs action to win victories.

Think about who you ought to be


If you could snap your fingers and change anything about yourself and your life, what would you change? did you ask for riches and fame? or did you ask for industriousness, caring and honesty?

The more you direct yourself toward a fantasy life, the less satisfied you will be with who you are and the more frustrated you will become as you fail to attain the fantasy. The more you direct yourself toward a better, more fulfilling life, the more youcan actually lead a better, more fulfilling life.

You and You


I ask for the movement to continue. Because it's not about personal gain, not about ego, not about power... it's about the "us's" out there. Not only gays, but the Blacks, the Asians, the disabled, the seniors, the us's. Without hope, the us's give up - I know you cannot live on hope alone, but without it, life is not worth living. So you, and you, and you... You gotta give em' hope... you gotta give em' hope.

Time is limited


Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.
your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

Love is a choice you make


No one can make the perfect match of hearts except the people who make the commitment to love one another. Each person person magically finds the half of their soul in someone else's herat. Two people become one when their souls speak to each other and know that together their hearts best as one.

It's a strength




If there's a crisis, you don't freeze, you move forward. You get the rest of us to move forward. Because you've seen worse. You've survived worse, and you know we'll survive too. You say you're all dark and twisty. It's not a flaw, it's a strength. It makes you who you are. I'm not gonna get down on one knee, I'm not gonna ask a question. I love you, and I wanna spend the rest of my life, with you.

The more


The more I'm afraid of something, the more I know I have to do it. I figured that out when I was a kid. I can lead a protected life, hiding away from the scary world. Or, I can take on the things that scare me the most. The more it might hurt, the more I might die doing it... the more worth doing it must be.

at any given moment the brain has 14 billion neurons firing at a speed450 miles per hour.we dont have control over most of them when we get a chill, goose bumps.when we get excited , adrenaline.the body naturally follows its impulses which, I think, is part ofwhat makes it so hard for us to control ours.of course sometimes we have impulses we would rather not control.....that we lather wish be had.
but the body is a slave to its impuleses. the thing that makes ushuman... is what we can control.after the storm, after the rush, after the heat of the moment has passed.we can cool off and clean up themesses were made.

Life, Love, Job, You.


It's not about what you look like,
or your job, or how succesful you are.
It's about having people in your life that you love and who love you.

That's all matters.

Courogeous

Have you ever had the conviction you've been living a lie your whole life?
I always try to live my life boldly, honestly. sometimes I feel I'm so fulfilled.
Maybe, when people found what they want, it makes easier to live.
because it's easier to run to the goal more than just don't see the goal and don't know where they are.

Feel into your heart,so you can feel mine.

Tomorrow will be a better day


What do you want?
What do you need to do to get what you want? what are you strengths, your weaknesses?
What is the next step you need to take? Forget about vague concepts and loose opinions. what are the facts? Most of us have plans, lots of plans. and we have ideas, lots of ideas. but we so rarely turn our ideas into our plans, thus creating our futur, because little of what we think about progresses beyond concepts and opinions.
Of course, we can never measure ourselves against concepts and opinions because they are too abstract to define. Thus , we can't say whether we 're making progress or what we need to change. Define your goals, and define your plans to attain them.
People who construct their goals in concrete terms are 50 % more likely to feel confident they will attain their goals and 32 % more likely to feel in control of their live.

There is no me without you


Know who does or does not matter.
When you care about a person, everything about the person matters.
When you don't care, nothing matters about the person.
When you discover who makes life better than belong alone,
then your life will be complete, and you will not want to be alone.
