Happy 2015…Start a Year Anew

Remember What’s Worth…Forget What is not.

In  this New Year of 2015,

“Promise Yourself (Myself)

To be so strong that nothing
can disturb your peace of mind.
To talk health, happiness, and prosperity
to every person you meet.

To make all your friends feel
that there is something in them
To look at the sunny side of everything
and make your optimism come true.

To think only the best, to work only for the best,
and to expect only the best.
To be just as enthusiastic about the success of others
as you are about your own.

To forget the mistakes of the past
and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
To wear a cheerful countenance at all times
and give every living creature you meet a smile.

To give so much time to the improvement of yourself
that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry, too noble for anger, too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.

To think well of yourself and to proclaim this fact to the world,
not in loud words but great deeds.
To live in faith that the whole world is on your side
so long as you are true to the best that is in you.”
~ Christian D. Larson, Your Forces and How to Use Them

Fabulous

If you possess it, you don’t need to ask what it is. When you attempt to delineate it, you move away from it. Fabulous is one of those words that provide a measure of the degree to which a person or event manifests a particular oppressed subculture’s most distinctive, invigorating features. What are the salient features of fabulousness? Irony. Tragic History. Defiance. Gender-fuck. Glitter. Drama. It is not butch. It is not hot. The cathexis surrounding fabulousness is not necessarily erotic. The fabulous is not delineated by age or beauty. It is raw materials reworked into illusion. To be truly fabulous, one must completely triumph over tragedy, age, and physical insufficiencies. The fabulous is the rapturous embrace of difference, the discovering of self not in that which has rejected you but in that which makes you unlike, the dislike, the other.*

Love and Desire

Love desire and Touch

If you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:

  • To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
  • To know the pain of too much tenderness.
  • To be wounded by your own understanding of love; And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
  • To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
  • To rest at noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
  • To return home at eventide with gratitude;
  • To sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and  a song of praise on your lips.

~ Kahlil Gibran

Svetlana Belyaeva

Love is always new. Regardless of whether we Love once, twice, or a dozen times in our life, we always face a brand-new situation. Love can consign us to hell or to paradise, but it always takes us somewhere. We simply have to accept it, because it is what nourishes our existence. If we reject it, we die of hunger, because we lack the courage to stretch out a hand and pluck the fruit from the branches of the tree of life. We have to take Love where we find it, even if that means hours, days, weeks of disappointment and sadness.

The Moment we Begin to Seek Love,
Love Begins to Seek Us. And to Save Us.

― Paulo Coelho, By the River Piedra I Sat Down and Wept

but Trusting them not to.
