Hope Springs Eternal

A traveler, a teacher, a mother, a partner, a novice, a peaceful warrior, in search of a positive vibe, a simpler life, more smiles, less judgement, renewal, creation, a path, fewer possessions, joy, conversation, late nights, stars, the feel of the wind, the smell of the ocean, time to listen and love for all.

For most of life, nothing wonderful happens. If you don’t enjoy getting up and working and finishing your work and sitting down to a meal with family or friends, then the chances are that you’re not going to be very happy. If someone bases his happiness or unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge amounts of money, a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip to Paris, that person isn’t going to be happy much of the time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends on a good breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap, then we are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.

You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.

I figured out it was a social thing, what women were allowed to do. At a very young age, I decided I was not going to follow women`s rules.
