Close your eyes, clear your heart, let it go...

never liked brown eyes before, their eyes are your new favourite colour."

"Most of us do not take these situations as teachings. We automatically hate them. We run like crazy. We use all kinds of ways to escape — all addictions stem from this moment when we meet our edge and we just can’t stand it. We feel we have to soften it, pad it with something, and we become addicted to whatever it is that seems to ease the pain."

- Pema Chödrön

"There’s no need for heartbreak warfare. It’s called ‘I love you’ — ‘I love you too’. ‘I need more love’ — ‘You got more love’, and you can get through life like that. Shouldn’t you just, on days where you want more love, be like ‘I had a bad dream that you were sleeping around, it’s really irrational, but just love me extra today’. Why can’t we just have this thing where you just say ‘Just love me extra today’. If I was with somebody and they said ‘Love me extra today’, I would love them extra forever."

- John Mayer, Atlanta, 2010

HOW CAN WE BE HAPPY ?
Once a group of 50 people was attending a seminar. Suddenly the speaker stopped and decided to do a group activity. He started giving each one a balloon. Each one was asked to write his/her name on it using a marker pen. Then all the balloons were collected and put in another room.
Now these delegates were let in that room and asked to find the balloon which had their name written, within 5 minutes. Everyone was frantically searching for their name, colliding with each other, pushing around others and there was utter chaos.
At the end of 5 minutes no one could find their own balloon. Now each one was asked to randomly collect a balloon and give it to the person whose name was written on it. Within minutes everyone had their own balloon.
The speaker began— exactly this is happening in our lives. Everyone is frantically looking for happiness all around, not knowing where it is.
Our happiness lies in the happiness of other people. Give them their happiness; you will get your own happiness. And this is the purpose of human life.

Remember how I said I had a mouse chew through part of my backseat? Well I caught that one but apparently it has a friend and that friend RAN ACROSS MY LAP and down my leg this morning while driving into work.

Yeah.

I learned I can scream quite impressively and drove straight off the road and into the snowbank (thank god not into another car). Once I got my car free I spent the remaining 2 mile drive to work yelling loudly to scare the mouse into staying hidden and I kept explaining that the floor is lava and I am lava and if it touches either of us it will die instantly. That the only safe place for it to be is exactly where it is hiding (I didn’t know where that was). Made it to work without seeing it again and bought 3 traps and put them in my car and I swear one of them better have a mouse in it at 5:30 or I am not driving home.

#stupid cold makes the mice like my car! #things that are not ok

"Did he think I was stupid? Yes, he did. And I was that stupid. Or rather, I willed myself to that state. Lovers offered only what they offered and nothing more, and what they offered came with provisions: believe what you want and don’t look carefully at what isn’t acceptable to you."

I had the smallest breakthrough yesterday with a couple people on my team and it happened late in the afternoon when I was so drained all I wanted to do was retreat to my desk. I’m really glad I didn’t and that I kept up my positive but firm attitude. It may have been a small moment but after these last few weeks it felt epic.

"We must face up to the old emotions of resentment, anger, jealousy or blame that we are holding on to. We must notice when we are telling that same disempowering story on repeat. We must catch our inner critic when it beats the crap out of us. And we must choose to make a shift."
