We are all meeting each other at different times in our lives and at different stages of our lives. Its like we are all on this same train to some currently unknown destination, and we are all getting on at different stops. But we meet and get to know people on the train, some have been on it longer than others and have seen and experienced different things.. so we all have parts of us that are at different stages compared to other people. But we are all on the same journey in the end and were all on it together.
We are, despite all our claims of superiority, simply chattering monkeys just down from the trees. We have far to go.
Oh hey in 2 days time ill have been on tumblr for exactly a year. Things have changed and changed back and are always changing.
Just being alive is such a gift, but nobody ever told you to be thankful for existence.
I am grateful for the compassion and understanding of others. I am grateful for the warmth and love and support my mum gives me, always.
To a dull mind the world is a dull place. Where he sees a flower barely worth notice the poet sees romance, love and passion. The artist sees color, textures and form. The world is what you make of it. Your perception is your reality.
Let gratitude be the pillow upon which you kneel to say your nightly prayer. And let faith be the bridge you build to overcome evil and welcome good.
You, my love, the foremost, in a flowered gown,
All your unbearable tenderness, you with the laughter
Startled upon your eyes now so wide with hereafter,
You with loose hands of abandonment hanging down.
I felt horribly sad at that moment, yet something like laughter was stirring in my soul.
The desire of love, Joy:
The desire of life, Peace:
The desire of the soul, Heaven:
The desire of God … a flame-white secret forever.
Some great advice I received yesterday.
From my very good friend Mark.
One of the worst parts of depression is that we feel like it is forever, and even if it’s not continuous forever, it still feels like we’ll never get rid of it. But it’s not true. You will get back on your feet. Maybe other flare ups will happen, but that is not going to be the main focus on your life. You should not be focusing on what you can’t do when you get depressed. You cannot focus on what you would have done if you weren’t depressed. Try focusing on maximising your abilities while you are depressed. Yes, you are limited, yes you haven’t been doing as well in school, but you’re depressed, and you have to try to maximize on your CURRENT capabilities. Try not to focus on anything but doing the best you can right now. That means going through the motions as much as possible and realizing at times that you are limited. When the negative thinking starts to kick in, don’t let it. Try to fight it. Allow yourself the permission to be depressed and have in mind to plow on as much as you can despite it.
