Quote 20 Sep

When you say yes to something there is less of you for something else.

Make sure your yes is worth the less.

Read some fine books, kiss someone who thinks you’re wonderful, and don’t forget to make some art (write or draw or build or sing or live as only YOU can)…

I am really into Meyers-Briggs personality types, and I am an ENFJ. A common title ENFJ’s are given is ‘The Giver.’ Translate this personality type into a girlfriend in a relationship, and you get a girl who spent much of her free time in high school dreaming up, creating, and reminiscing…

After some time you learn the difference,

The subtle difference between holding a hand and chaining a soul.

And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning,

And company doesn’t always mean security.

And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts,

And presents aren’t promises.

And you begin to accept your defeats, 

With your head up and your eyes ahead, 

With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child. 

And you learn to build all your roads on today, 

Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans, 

And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. 

After a while you learn,

That even the sun burns if you get too much, 

And learn that it doesn’t matter how much you do care about, 

Some people simply don’t care at all. 

And you accept that it doesn’t matter how good a person is, 

She will hurt you once in a while, 

And you need to forgive her for that. 

You learn that talking can relieve emotional pain. 

You discover that it takes several years to build a relationship based on confidence, 

And just a few seconds to destroy it. 

And that you can do something just in an instant, 

And which you will regret for the rest of your life. 

You learn that the true friendships, 

Continue to grow even from miles away. 

And that what matters isn’t what you have in your life, 

But who you have in your life. 

And that good friends are the family,

Which allows us to choose.

You learn that we don’t have to switch our friends, 

If we understand that friends can also change. 

You realize that you are your best friend,

And that you can do anything, or nothing, 

And have good moments together. 

You discover that the people who you most care about in your life, 

Are taken from you so quickly, 

So we must always leave the people who we care about with lovely words, 

It may be the last time we see them. 

You learn that the circumstances and the enviroment have influence upon us, 

But we are responsible for ourselves. 

You start to learn that you should not compare yourself with others, 

But with the best you can be. 

You discover that it takes a long time to become the person you wish to be, 

And that the time is short. 

You learn that it doesn’t matter where you have reached, 

But where you are going to. 

But if you don’t know where you are going to, 

Anywhere will do. 

You learn that either you control your acts, 

Or they shall control you. 

And that to be flexible doesn’t mean to be weak or not to have personality, 

Because it doesn’t matter how delicate and fragile the situation is, 

There are always two sides. 

You learn that heroes are those who did what was necessary to be done, 

Facing the consequences. 

You learn that patience demands a lot of practice. 

You discover that sometimes, 

The person who you most expect to be kicked by when you fall, 

Is one of the few who will help you to stand up. 

You learn that maturity has more to do with the kinds of experiences you had 

And what you have learned from them, 

Than how many birthdays you have celebrated. 

You learn that there are more from your parents inside you than you thought. 

You learn that we shall never tell a child that dreams are silly, 

Very few things are so humiliating,

And it would be a tragedy if she believed in it. 

You learn that when you are angry, 

You have the right to be angry, 

But this doesn’t give you the right to be cruel. 

You discover that only because someone doesn’t love you the way you would like 
her to, 

It doesn’t mean that this person doesn’t love you the most she can, 

Beacuse there are people who love us, 

But just don’t know how to show or live that. 

You learn that sometimes it isn’t enough being forgiven by someone, 

Sometimes you have to learn how to forgive yourself. 

You learn that with the same harshness you judge, 

Some day you will be condemned. 

You learn that it doesn’t matter in how many pieces your heart has been broken,

The world doesn’t stop for you to fix it. 

You learn that time isn’t something you can turn back, 

Therefore you must plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, 

Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. 

And you learn that you really can endure. 

You really are strong.

And you can go so farther than you thought you could go. 

And that life really has a value. 

And you have value within the life.

And that our gifts are betrayers, 

And make us lose 

The good we could conquer,

If it wasn’t for the fear of trying.

When Elaine and Miraya first reached out to me about Uprooted&Relentless, it was still just an idea and (according to my Gmail inbox search) 3 days after Miraya and I graduated from Haas. I wanted to be a part of it, but at that time the only thing on my mind was how in 9 days I’d be stuffing…

My first post. Excited to join these Uprooted gals!

Text 17 Feb “If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision,

you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.

The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience. 

If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.” 

― Deepak Chopra
