Not until we are lost do we begin to understand ourselves.
I hate when people think they are above certain types of work. I think I encounter this especially where I work, I think if you want to advance beyond menial tasks then you need to prove you can do them and appreciate their importance and the work it takes to do them. Respect and appreciate the people who work for you, if you are really deserving of your title and position you should know what it feels like to work hard for little pay and little gratitude. A strong leader is one without a sense of entitlement.
I think “forever” is an even more powerful word than “love.” You can claim to love anything. But forever is a rare unconditional commitment. I’m not even sure its possible in the way people want it to be….
Do you think we would be happier if we accept that the only thing that is forever is our control over our happiness and how we choose to deal with things. People are so unpredictable.
I think what has been hard for me to accept about loving someone is that they are their own person with doubts, desires, flaws, and transgressions. To accept this Ive had to come to terms with myself as a flawed and confused person who is essentially good.
Come quickly — as soon as these flowers open, they fall this world exists as a sheen of dew on flowers
