we prostitute our principles, running after the things of the world in order to gain temporary pleasure.

Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.

Love is our freedom.
Milan Kundera
In the midst of winter, I found there was, within me, an invincible summer.
Albert Camus

And when you get home in the evening, before you let busyness overtake you, make yourself a drink.  Don’t go to the gym.  Don’t start making dinner.  Don’t take the dog for a walk.  Give yourself a minute to reflect on what you accomplished just by surviving another day out in the world.

Forget cracking a beer or pouring a glass of wine.  Actually make a drink.  Take some time with it.  Enjoy the process.  Find joy and comfort in the act.  Then, when you drink it, concentrate on it.  Savor it.  Understand that celebrating even the tiniest achievements in life is a well-deserved gift.

It’s easy to become an electro magnet for bullshit.  It’s easy to get weighed down with all of our work responsibilities, paying bills, juggling our to-do lists.  A lot of shredded metal and engine parts can get stuck up there and weigh us down if we’re not careful.  Always remember to flip the switch off for a minute or two at the end of the day.  Set the wreckage free.

View the world the way you wish to see it and the motherfuckin thing will bend and warp and change until your visions become the reality.

We’re social beings.  This means we are incomplete without community.  Don’t cause problems for the people who love you.  It’s as wise as trying to eat your own foot.

“The most daring thing is to create stable communities in which the terrible disease of loneliness can be cured.”
Kurt Vonnegut
