“It’s not what other people believe you can do, it’s what you believe.”
[since feeling is first]
e. e. cummings
since feeling is first
who pays any attention
to the syntax of things
will never wholly kiss you;
wholly to be a fool
while Spring is in the world
my blood approves,
and kisses are a better fate
lady i swear by all flowers. Don’t cry
—the best gesture of my brain is less than
your eyelids’ flutter which says
we are for each other: then
laugh, leaning back in my arms
for life’s not a paragraph
And death i think is no parenthesis
Let Go of What Isn’t Essential
Decluttering sounds like a big project, but setting aside just 20 minutes a week can have a big impact. What can you do in 20 minutes? Lots. Set a timer on your phone and take 15 minutes to tidy up a specific area of one room — say, your closet or that out-of-control junk drawer. Put everything in its place and toss or give away any extra clutter that’s not serving you anymore. Keep a designated box for giveaways to make things a little easier (and avoid creating more clutter).Use the remaining 5 minutes to do a quick walk through your living space, putting away whatever stray items end up in your path. You can do this trick once a week, once a day, or anytime you feel like your space is getting out of control.
Note: Decluttering around your office, home, or apartment will help you to feel better. Think about decluttering your mind. Let go of other people’s business. Let go of things you can’t change. Let go of anger and resentments. You’ll add ten years to your life.
Rekindle your childlike joy & exuberance.
Go after life and all it offers.
Joe: “My psychiatrist asked me if I was suffering from all my delusions.”
Pete: “What did you say?”
Joe: “I said, ‘No, I’m actually enjoying them.'”
“Sometimes to go forward you’ve got to go to the depths of your own personal despair and claw yourself back.
From that point, no matter what happens, you know you can do it.” Gordon Strachan
Note: Getting knocked down, embarrassed, and made to feel like you’re at the deepest part of the hole is not the end. It’s only the end if you feel sorry for yourself and refuse to climb out. Climbing out is hard work. It takes courage. When you climb out and into the sunshine you’ll know one truth, you took a hard shot, got back up and climbed out. Show them all the stuff you are made of.
There is no single most important food that you should eat every day
