"Sometimes all you need is twenty seconds of insane courage.
Just literally 20 seconds of embarrassing bravery"

I like to remind myself that my track record for
getting through bad days so far is 100%.

And that's pretty good.

To know what an experience is really like, youíve got to experience it for yourself, not just think about it.

Hayes, Steven C.. Get Out of Your Mind and Into Your Life: The New Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (p. 32). New Harbinger Publications. Kindle Edition.



Most problems are caused by 2 things- too little thinking with too much action or too much thinking with too little action.

-*******ization of a quote from pam's blog.

See my signature...

"Do you see the way that tree bends? Does it inspire?
Leaning out to catch the sun's rays...a lesson to be applied...
Are you gettin' something out of this all-encompassing trip?
You can spend your time alone redigesting past regrets oh...
Or you can come to terms and realize
You're the only one who can forgive yourself oh yeah...
Makes much more sense to live in the present tense... "

What do you fill your thoughts with? Love? Passion? Optimism? Negativity? Hatred? Gossip? You are in control of your thoughts and what you speak. Change your thoughts and watch your world and your every day life start to change in a positive way. See and appreciate the small things, choose kindness even if someone else doesn't- it may inspire them to change as well. "Before you speak, let your words pass through 3 gates: -Is it true? -Is it necessary? -Is it kind?

"For what itís worth: itís never too late or, in my case, too early to be whoever you want to be. Thereís no time limit, stop whenever you want. You can change or stay the same, there are no rules to this thing. We can make the best or the worst of it. I hope you make the best of it. And I hope you see things that startle you. I hope you feel things you never felt before. I hope you meet people with a different point of view. I hope you live a life youíre proud of. If you find that youíre not, I hope you have the courage to start all over again."- F. Scott Fitzgerald
--------------------------

ďI don't know when we'll see each other again or what the world will be like when we do. We may both have seen many horrible things. But I will think of you every time I need to be reminded that there is beauty and goodness in the world.Ē - Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha

-----------------------

"I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you donít feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kidís runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you areó particularly when itís difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when itís done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (Iím not a big one for paying complimentsÖ), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter." -Jonathan Carroll

-----------------------

"Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you havenít found it yet, keep looking. Donít settle. As with all matters of the heart, youíll know when you find it." - Steve Jobs

We tend to overestimate what we can do in a short period, and underestimate what we can do over a long period, provided we work slowly and consistently. Anthony Trollope, the nineteenth-century writer who managed to be a prolific novelist while also revolutionizing the British postal system, observed, ďA small daily task, if it be really daily, will beat the labours of a spasmodic Hercules.Ē Over the long run, the unglamorous habit of frequency fosters both productivity and creativity.

-Gretchen Rubin, The Happiness Project

Miles to go before I sleep. Vale.

Know your ACE (adverse childhood experiences) score?
Sometimes, SA is a symptom of significant developmental, attachment or interpersonal trauma (emotional neglect counts). If you're still stuck after you've tried SA treatments such as CBT and exposure, research C-PTSD and see if it resonates. Here's an awesome resource. Complex PTSD: From Surviving to Thriving

"Only give your heart to those who know what a treasure it is. If they don't appreciate it, they don't deserve it. Don't waste your time trying to convince someone of something they just can't see."

"Give, but don't allow yourself to be used. Love, but don't allow your heart to be abused. Trust, but don't be naive. Listen to others, but don't lose your own voice."

"If you're giving your all to someone and it's not enough, you're giving it to the wrong person."

delve deeper; determine the root cause

ďA: So you intend to return to your desert?

B: I am not quick moving. I have to wait for myselfó it is always late before the water comes to light out of the well of my self, and I often have to endure thirst for longer than I have patience. That is why I go into solitudeó so as not to drink out of everybodyís cistern. When I am among the many I live as the many do, and I do not think as I really think; after a time it always seems as though they want to banish me from myself and rob me of my souló and I grow angry with everybody and fear everybody. I then require the desert, so as to grow good again.Ē

For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction.

Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
― Iain Thomas, I Wrote This For You

ďI am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me. Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn't impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.Ē
