"There is no better than adversity.  Every defeat, every heart break, every loss, contains its own seed, its own lesson on how to improve your performance the next time."
Malcolm X

With some things, I really wish there were no "next time".  Until then - time to suck it up champ,  shoulder in it and go.

Go hard, or go ...  away.

Universe - if it ain't epic, I don't want it.

the quote is the song:

Ides of March...
I don't really know if I believe in fate, but I accept its concept and premise.

Last night I breathed to the universe a hope, a wish for clarity - for confirmation.  Today, I got it in the form of a song from one of my dearest friends and sister.  It wasn't the song per se, but they way she shared it (and yeah, the song is pretty amazing too).

The signs we ask for are not always complex nor clear, and in a round about way may come to us.  This was not a direct answer but I saw it, mostly because I felt it.

We have to be willing to ask the hard questions, and accept the answers that come.

"Don't spend time beating on a wall, hoping to transform it into a door."
Coco Chanel

Perhaps this is true of ourselves as well.  If patience is not your strong suit, then why beat yourself up - find another way.  I am learning (relearning) this now.

Love.  Give love, accept love, don't be afraid of love, and be terrified of it - it's all wonderful.  Just - love.

03.07.13 - no quote, just heart

i am fasting, from food.  what i miss, however, are my two tea buddies (and i say this lightly, only because to say it the way i feel it draws my heart up into my throat and out my eyes).  i know how each sips their tea...  mar doesn't take it with as much sugar as she used too (and we are all happy about that) and q will always blow on his tea ever so slightly and sip it as if it were gold (and it is, if steeped correctly).  these two people are gems in this universe, and my soul is profoundly better from knowing them.  my heart has grown from knowing them and them having showered their love on me.  

there is no quote here...  except for maybe something q likes to say:  our souls are friends.

i would one up that:  our souls have become family.

"It's not vanity to feel you have a right to be beautiful.  Women are taught to feel we're not good enough, that we must live up to someone else's standards.  But my aim is to cherish myself as I am."
Elle Macpherson

Tomorrow begins the Bahai month of fasting.  Tomorrow I will dive into the deep end of cherishing myself, finding value in myself, being true to who that is and manifesting it.
