I dislike seeing posts about vegans bashing on those who eat meat. Dang, I respect that you enjoy eating plants and everything, but why can’t you respect those who prefer eating both of them? Learn to respect others if you want to be respected… you shouldn’t attack others for thinking differently when it comes to the food they consume.  

Quote to Live By

  1. Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me either. Just pretty much leave me the hell alone.
  2. The journey of a thousand miles begins with a broken fan belt and leaky tire.
  3. It’s always darkest before dawn. So if you’re going to steal your neighbor’s newspaper, that’s the time to do it.
  4. Don’t be irreplaceable. If you can’t be replaced, you can’t be promoted.
  5. Always remember that you’re unique. Just like everyone else.
  6. Never test the depth of the water with both feet.
  7. If you think nobody cares if you’re alive, try missing a couple of car payments.
  8. Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you’re a mile away and you have their shoes.
  9. If at first you don’t succeed, skydiving is not for you.
  10. Give a man a fish and he will eat for a day. Teach him how to fish, and he will sit in a boat and drink beer all day.

My boyfriend and I broke up on Thursday. I confessed to my best friend how I felt about him. I’m in love again but it’s real this time. I’m not pretending like I used to when I was with my ex… I guess deep down I was always in love with him. We’re so happy. I’m finally happy, I had forgotten how “happy” really felt like.  

The Art Of Developing A Beautiful Mind by John O’Donohue

The world is not simply there. Everything and everyone we see, we view through the lenses of our thoughts. Your mind is where your thoughts arise and form. It is not simply with your eyes but with your mind that you see the world. So much depends on your mind: How you see yourself, who you think you are, how you see others, what you think the meaning of life is, how you see death, belief, God, darkness and beauty is all determined by the style of mind you have.

Your mind is your greatest treasure. We become so taken up with the world, with having and doing more and more that we come to ignore who we are and forget what we see the world with. The most powerful way to change your life is to change your mind. In this evening’s talk, we will explore ways of awakening, enriching and refining your mind. We will use lecture, conversation, story, poetry and meditation.

When you beautify your mind, you beautify your world. You learn to see differently. In what seemed like dead situations, secret possibilities and invitations begin to open before you. In old suffering that held you long paralyzed, you find new keys. When your mind awakens, your life comes alive and the creative adventure of your soul takes off. Passion and compassion become your new companions. As St. Iraneus said in the 2nd Century, “The glory of God is the human person fully alive.

I had such an amazing day! After school I picked up my brother and my best friend from their school, and went to Ben and Jerry’s and got some milkshakes. We talked for a while and later we proceed to hang out in my house for a while. Both of us didn’t have anything for tomorrow so we decided we should spend some time together. I really missed spending time with him, and today has just been perfect. It’s amazing how well we get along when together even though we have our differences. Wjekfekjfkjfwfkwjprwer I missed telling him everything and knowing he cares. I think he has no idea how important he is to me and how much I appreciate our friendship. I’m so grateful of having such and amazing friend, he could easily be one of the best things that has ever happened to me.  

I’m so happy! My best friend and I are I talking again. He sent me a text on Saturday night saying how he missed talking to me and the reason he wasn’t before was because his friends told him it was weird we talked so much constantly when I have a boyfriend. I told him he should stop listening to what people have to say, because what they usually say isn’t anything good. 

I had some friends over yesterday and he came too. I was so happy to see him, we had to catch up on so many things. When my boyfriend and everyone left, he stayed here with me till we almost fell asleep. We spent those two hours alone watching funny videos and talking about life and each other. Oh God, I missed him so much, I couldn’t stop staring at him. I missed looking at those green eyes as he spoke to me. It was weird but at the same time it was perfect. Those moments we spent together last night met a lot to me, and I can’t wait till we have another occasion like that. 

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;—
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

THE 15 LAWS OF LIFE By Swami Vivekananda

Love is the Law of Life

All love is expansion, all selfishness is contraction. Love is therefore the only law of life. He who loves lives, he who is selfish is dying. Therefore, love for love’s sake, because it is law of life, just as you breathe to live.

It is Your Outlook That Matters

It is our own mental attitude, which makes the world what it is for us. Our thoughts make things beautiful, our thoughts make things ugly. The whole world is in our own minds. Learn to see things in the proper light.

Life is Beautiful

First, believe in this world - that there is meaning behind everything. Everything in the world is good, is holy and beautiful. If you see something evil, think that you do not understand it in the right light. Throw the burden on yourselves!

It is The Way You Feel

Feel like Christ and you will be a Christ; feel like Buddha and you will be a Buddha. It is feeling that is the life, the strength, the vitality, without which no amount of intellectual activity can reach God.

Set Yourself Free

The moment I have realised God sitting in the temple of every human body, the moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him - that moment I am free from bondage, everything that binds vanishes, and I am free.
