The Story of a [cynical] Girl

I am Virgo. My ruler: Mercury. My season is summer. This is [not] the story of a girl [who cried a river and drowned the whole world]. It is simply one of a girl... that happens to sometimes be cynical. Who sometimes cries rivers. But who mostly lifts up her eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh her help.

I’m desperately, oppressingly, suffocatingly, crazily, hopelessly fine.

Never Give Up

No matter what is going on

Never give up

Develop the heart

Too much energy in your country

Is spent developing the mind

Instead of the heart

Be compassionate

Not just to your friends

But to everyone

Be compassionate

Work for peace

In your heart and in the world

Work for peace

And I say again

Never give up

No matter what is going on around you

Never give up

- Dalai Lama XIV

I was just listening to this song over the weekend. It’s true. They don’t give a damn about us.

The Good Samaritan Challenge

I was just thinking about how sometimes just a smile from someone can help turn my day around. Sometimes, someone knowingly or unknowingly blesses me with something that I was needing. I want to challenge everyone to smile at someone,  compliment something they have on, give them a couple of dollars out of the kindness of your heart…anything! But at least smile.

You never know what someone is going through and just the smallest action that we take for granted could save someone’s life. Please share your experiences if you decide to participate!

“Please, don’t worry so much. Because in the end, none of us have very long on this earth. Life is fleeting. And if you’re ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night. And when a shooting star streaks through the blackness, turning night into day… make a wish and think of me. Make your life spectacular. I know I did.”

—   Robin Williams, Jack (1996)

Don’t let them have another moment of power over your life.

Isn’t precisely happiness what we all want, without exception?

Be different. Be unique. Be yourself. Most of all, don’t lose yourself in a quest for conformity.
