‘Why do beautiful songs make you sad?’
‘Because they aren’t true.’
‘Nothing is beautiful and true.’
False Evidence Appear Real
Forgetting Everything is All Right
“Of all creatures that breathe and move upon the earth, nothing is bred that is weaker than man.”
|—||The Odyssey, Homer|
I no longer agree to treat myself with disrespect.
Every time a self-critical thought comes to mind,
I will forgive the Judge,
And follow this comment with words of praise, self-acceptance, and love.
Learn to let go of the past, and recognize that every day won’t be sunny.
And when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair,
Remember it’s only in the black of night that you see the stars.
And those stars will lead you back home.
So don’t be afraid to make mistakes,
To stumble and fall,
Because most of the time, the greatest rewards come from doing the things that scare you the most.
Maybe you’ll get everything you wish for.
And perhaps you won’t.
But maybe, just maybe you’ll get more than you ever could have imagined.
Who knows where life will take you.
The road is long and in the end, the journey is the destination.
“So, I love you because the entire universe conspired to help me find you.”
