joy accompanied me





A leaf fluttered in through the window this morning, as if supported by the rays of the sun, a bird settled on the fire escape, joy in the task of coffee, joy accompanied me as I walked.

a good sign...

“This is a good sign, having a broken heart. It means we have tried for something. Elizabeth Gilbert

intention without action


You cannot change anything in your life with intention alone,
which can become a watered-down, occasional hope
that you'll get to tomorrow. Intention without action is useless.

laughter

Laughter lightens our load on the journey through life, bonds us to others and deepens us as human beings. To be able to laugh at ourselves in all our frailty is a blessing, ensuring we do not become bitter and twisted.

some pieces of randy pausch's last lecture...

i remember listening to this lecture and feeling better afterwards. and right now, feeling better is like finding gold... here are a few that i really like. thought i would share




When it comes to men that are romantically interested in you, it’s really simple. Just ignore everything they say and only pay attention to what they do. It’s that simple. It’s that easy.


Don’t bail. The best of the gold’s at the bottom of barrels of crap.


If I only had three words of advice, they would be, Tell the Truth. If got three more words, I'd add, all the time.


Believe nothing a man tells you and everything he shows you....(Taken from a farewell video from a dying father to his infant daughter on dating)


Never make a decision until you have to. Even if you are in a position of strength, whether at work or in a relationship, you have to play fair. Just because you're in the driver's seat, doesn't mean you have to run people over.

Someone has said, "the Universe has imagined it even better than you have." And we like to add to that: The Universe got all of its information about what you like from you, and it has remembered every piece of it and has put it together in perfect formation. And so, the things that are on their way to you are so much better than you even know that you want. And as you allow them, the essence all of these things that the Universe knows that you are wanting make their way to you and appear in perfect timing for you.
