Something That Had Already Happened To Us.

I never planned to get married when I was only twenty-five, and I’m not sure exactly how it happened – neither of us ever officially proposed, or anything dramatic like that. It started off as a playful fantasy we talked about. Then the fantasy became a plan, the way fantasies sometimes do, and the plan became a future. It didn’t hit us as the climax of anything, just the celebration of something that had already happened to us. – Love Is A Mix Tape, Rob Sheffield

‘I believe that we are all transient,’ she began. She thought for a while and added,’ I believe that we are half-blind and full of errors. I believe that we understand very little, and what we do understand is mostly wrong. I believe that life cannot be survived – that is evident! – but if one is lucky, life can be endured for quite a long while. If one is both lucky and stubborn, life can sometimes even be enjoyed.’ – The Signature Of All Things, Elizabeth Gilbert

The Secret Life of Water.

If you feel yourself feeling down, overwhelmed by the daily grind, or offended by an unkind word or act, then I suggest you try something: simply look at water. Walk to the edge of a nearby pond or stream and cast your eyes on gentle waves reflecting the sun. If it’s raining, find a puddle and watch the raindrops make rings that appear and disappear. Or while you are washing dishes at the sink, gaze at the geometric creations made as the light from the window mingles with water cascading downwards.

I recommend this because you will discover that water takes you to another world where you will feel the water within being washed clean; you will be able to return to who you really are. You have just forgotten for a while that you are water.The Secret Life of Water, Masaru Emoto

The ship of my life may or may not be sailing on calm and amiable seas. The challenging days of my existence may or may not be bright and promising. Stormy or sunny days, glorious or lonely nights, I maintain an attitude of gratitude, If I insist on being pessimistic, there is always tomorrow.

Today I am blessed. – Porgy and Bess, Maya Angelou
