"One of my favorite mottos, I actually have it written on a post-it over my computer. I look at it every single day. It was said by a poet named Rumi and it goes, ‘Do not be satisfied with stories, that which has come before. Unfold your own myth.’ And that is our challenge. Every single one of us, no matter the categories we have inherited. We must unfold our own myth. And it won’t be easy. We’re constantly navigating, rearranging, reinventing others’ expectation of ourselves everyday. But every word we write in the narrative of our own lives, we come closer to uncovering what’s beneath our own masks, maybe even embracing that true misfit, that true crazy one within. Oh, it’ll be a fight, that’s for sure, but that battle for your soul, for your authentic self. It’s worth it, isn’t it? It’s bold, it’s brave. In fact, I would say it’s heroic. So now, it’s your turn: tell me your story.

Balloon Picture/Notes Surprise
Someone special’s birthday or anniversary? Surprise them by sneaking into their room/place and filling up balloons with helium. Add a long string and tape on pictures of you two, notes, cards, or other cute items. Try to keep the items paper or light weight so it won’t pull the balloons all the way down to the ground.

It has made me better loving you… it has made me wiser, and easier, and brighter. It’s just as when one has been trying to spell out a book in the twilight, and suddenly the lamp comes in. I had been putting out my eyes over the book of life, and finding nothing to reward me for my pains; but now that I can read it properly I see that it’s a delightful story.

Incidentally, some of my favorite books of all time are on this list—Chopin’s The Awakening, James’ Turn of the Screw, Wharton’s Ethan Frome. It’s probably because when books are shorter like this, they read more like short stories, and that appeals to me? I dunno, but check it out!

nvm, i get it now :)

i guess i’ve got more to learn haha

I LIKE THIS. I LIKE THIS A LOT.

Even More Brilliance!
