Social Mask

When we really see other people as they are without taking it personally, we can never be hurt by what they say or do. Even if others lie to you, it is okay. They are lying to you because they are afraid. They are afraid you will discover that they are not perfect. It is painful to take that social mask off…. Don Miguel Ruiz

 So often we try to make other people feel better by minimizing their pain, by telling them that it will get better (which it will) or that there are worse things in the world (which there are). But that’s not what I actually needed.

What I actually needed was for someone to tell me that it hurt because it mattered. I have found this very useful to think about over the years, and I find that it is a lot easier and more bearable to be sad when you aren’t constantly berating yourself for being sad.

Sometimes things happen to you that may seem horrible, painful, and unfair at first, but in reflection you find that without overcoming those obstacles you would have never realized your potential, strength, willpower, or heart.

Everything Happens For A Reason

I believe that everything happens for a reason.
People change so that you can learn to let go.
Things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they’re right.
You believe less so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself.
And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.

It’s always that one song that gets to you. You can hide, but the song comes to find you.

When They Are Gone

When they are gone, you will remember every single opportunity you had to speak them. And didn’t.

The 7 Wonders

A group of students was asked to list what they thought were the present “Seven Wonders of the World.”Though there were some disagreements, the following received the most votes:
1. Egypt’s Great Pyramids
2. Taj Mahal

3. Grand Canyon
4. Panama Canal
5. Empire State Building
6. St. Peter’s Basilica
7. China’s Great Wall
While gathering the votes, the teacher noted that one student had not finished her paper yet. So she asked the girl if she was having trouble with her list. The girl replied, “Yes, a litte. I couldn’t quite make up my mind because there were no many.”

The teacher said, “Well, tell us what you have, and maybe we can help.” The girl hesitated, then read, “I think the ‘Seven Wonders of the World’ are:

1. To see
2. To hear
3. To touch
4. To taste
5. To feel
6. To laugh
7. And to love.

The room was so quiet you could have heard a pin drop. The things we overlook as simple and ordinary, and that we take for granted, are truly wonderous! A gentle reminder that the most precious things in life cannot be built or bought.

Love Comes

Love comes to those who still hope even though they’ve been disappointed, to those who still believe even though they’ve been betrayed, to love those who still love even though they’ve been hurt before.

You ever look a picture of yourself, and see a stranger in the background?. It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you.

How many moments of other peoples life have we been in. Were we a part of someone’s life when their dream came true or were we there when their dream died. Did we keep trying to get in? As if we were somehow destined to be there or did the shot take us by surprise.

Just think, you could be a big part of someone elses life, and not even know it.
