My opinion on polygamy: take three

I stumbled across this article and I couldn’t help but share it with my continual opinions on polygamy/polyamory. *Find part one here. *Find part two here. I especially love the last sentence “When we stop being afraid of what’s across from ‘normal’ we will finally find common ground. The way I see it, love, all … Continue reading

An unexpected Saturday night.

What does one do on a typical Saturday night? Go out drinking? Stay at home and watch a movie? Do some study? Well, when I woke up yesterday morning, I never in a million years expected to spend the night in a closed up ice cream shop making ice cream with a total stranger until … Continue reading

Yes Please

The other week a dear friend gave me this book Yes Please by Amy Poehler, and a few things really struck me throughout the book that I just wanted to share and say that I agree with, or that it made me open my eyes to see life a bit differently. This book in its entirety … Continue reading

Selfish

Finally there’s a way I can kind of describe the two versions of being “selfish”! Thanks Mandarin for having a better understanding of this issue than we have in English.   

The Butterfly Effect

“It has been said that something seemingly insignificant, like that of a butterfly flapping its wings may cause a ripple effect that can take you on new adventures beyond your wildest dreams. Be as free as a butterfly, say yes instead of no, and go with the ripples.”

A must *listen* video

This video has been circulating the internet since the ultra upsetting death of the legend that was Robin Williams. I have watched this video countless amount of times, and occasionally I watched it while closing my eyes and absorbing each and every word. I really encourage you to do the same because the words from … Continue reading

Desiderata

Upon struggling with a decision I was trying to make, a dear friend told me to read this script again and to use it to help me make my decision and to stick with it once it’s made. I forgot how powerful and beautiful this piece of text is. If you want to see a … Continue reading

Mantra 9/6/2014

Upon watching the film ‘Into the Wild’ last night (for only the second time in my life), I am still moved and inspired by the movie/story/life of Chris McCandless. There are some aspects of what he did that I wish, or hope, one day that I can do. Although I would never go to the extent he … Continue reading

30 Seconds to Mars – but mostly just Jared Leto

I’ve always had a bit of a crush on Jared Leto, and today, for one reason or another, I ended up watching video after video of interviews, songs, award speeches, movie trailers, etc of this amazing, attractive, astonishing man and I found myself falling deeper in love with him with every minute that passed. He … Continue reading

Forgive but don’t Forget

Daily Prompt: Do you hold grudges or do you believe in forgive and forget? Mahatma Gandhi said: “The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is an attribute of the strong.” I believe forgiveness is the key to your own peace and happiness. But that doesn’t mean you have to forget. Our experiences are what make us who … Continue reading

Mantra 28/4/2014

This week’s mantra comes from the quote above. Supposedly it is a quote by Shakespeare, but the internet is not much of a reliable source of information most of the time, especially when it comes to quotes and sayings by famous people – or importantly – dead, famous people. Anyhow, the point remains the same no … Continue reading

Josh Radnor – Kindness Matters

I found this piece a little while ago, and looking at the date now, I wish I had’ve seen it much earlier than I did. Nevertheless, the content is still as truthful and accurate as the day he said it and something that I wholeheartedly agree with. Josh Radnor seems like such an amazing person … Continue reading
