You are not your story but your actions.

Your story is what you tell others, is what you tell to yourself, but it could be made of little lies, misinterpretations, false turns. Your actions are the truth in you. Actions don't lie. If you've done something wrong in the past, that you regret and everyday you wish you could erase it from your Life Story, don't believe that what you did it's not you. You are that wrong choice. For some reason you might not know yet, you chose to do wrong. Accept it as it is and learn from it, don't erase it. No need to bring back to the surface either if it brings more hurt than peace, but accept that in your life you've made some bad choices based on what you knew at the time. By now, you should know better before committing the same or similar mistake. Be sure to pay attention to what you're doing. You'll know a lot more about yourself and your own true nature if you pay attention not to your thoughts but to your actions.

Strong foundations

Accept, say Yes, Believe... Be true to your Heart.

“Life is like a play: it’s not the length, but the excellence of the acting that matters.”

“This fundamental richness is available in each moment. The key is to relax: relax to a cloud in the sky, relax to a tiny bird with gray wings, relax to the sound of the telephone ringing. We can see the simplicity in things as they are. We can smell things, taste things, feel emotions, and have memories. When we are able to be there without saying, “I certainly agree with this,” or “I definitely don’t agree with that,” but just be here very directly, then we find fundamental richness everywhere. It is not ours or theirs but is available always to everyone. In raindrops, in blood drops, in heartache and delight, this wealth is the nature of everything. It is like the sun in that it shines on everyone without discrimination. It is like a mirror in that it is willing to reflect anything without accepting or rejecting.”
Excerpt From: Chödrön, Pema. “When Things Fall Apart”

“There are two core fears: losing what you have, and not getting what you want. The solution? Falling in love with where you are.”
Jeff Foster

To be The Fool

“But WORDS are things,
and a small drop of ink,
falling like dew,
upon a thought, produces
that which makes thousands,
perhaps millions, think.”

Lord Byron.


On growing up...

Why do we force ourselves towards “impossible” challenges?! ... To know ourselves and become humble about what it is to BE human. To be honest about our dreams and fears is the only way to really grow...

"If I dismiss the ordinary — waiting for the special, the extreme, the extraordinary to happen — I may just miss my life."
Dani Shapiro

Get inspired!

“When we are inspired, rather like when we are in love, we can feel both unintelligible to ourselves and most truly ourselves.”
Adam Phillips

"A person experiences life as something separated from the rest - a kind of optical delusion of consciousness. Our task must be to free ourselves from this self-imposed prison, and through compassion, to find the reality of Oneness." 

Albert Einstein

For the Water people outhere...

“Work as hard as you can, imagine immensities, don’t compromise, and don’t waste time. Start now. Not 20 years from now, not two weeks from now. Now.”

"If the twentieth-century career was a ladder that we climbed from one predictable rung to the next, the twenty-first-century career is more like a broad rock face that we are all free-climbing. There’s no defined route, and we must use our own ingenuity, training, and strength to rise to the top. We must make our own luck."
Jocelyn Glei

Take control over your Dreams...

“You are what you settle for” 
Janis Joplin

"Lucky people take advantage of chance occurrences that come their way. Instead of going through life on cruise control, they pay attention to what’s happening around them and, therefore, are able to extract greater value from each situation… Lucky people are also open to novel opportunities and willing to try things outside of their usual experiences. They’re more inclined to pick up a book on an unfamiliar subject, to travel to less familiar destinations, and to interact with people who are different than themselves."
Tina Seelig

"This is your life; savor it. Hold on to the threads across days that, when woven together, reveal the rich tapestry of what you are achieving and who you are becoming. The best part is that, seeing the story line appearing, you can actively create what it — and you — will become."
Steven Kramer and Teresa Amabile
“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.”
Kurt Vonnegut
