…I was calm on the outside but thinking
all the time.
Whatever relationships you have attracted in your life at this moment, are precisely the ones you need in your life at this moment. There is a hidden meaning behind all events, and this hidden meaning is serving your own evolution.
Weezer - Butterfly (Harp Version live at AOL Sessions)
I guess you’re as real as me
Maybe I can live with that
Maybe I need fantasy
A life of chasing Butterfly
God dammit rivers I cry every time
I firmly believe in small gestures: pay for their coffee, hold the door for strangers, over tip, smile or try to be kind even when you don’t feel like it, pay compliments, chase the kid’s runaway ball down the sidewalk and throw it back to him, try to be larger than you are— particularly when it’s difficult. People do notice, people appreciate. I appreciate it when it’s done to (for) me. Small gestures can be an effort, or actually go against our grain (“I’m not a big one for paying compliments…”), but the irony is that almost every time you make them, you feel better about yourself. For a moment life suddenly feels lighter, a bit more Gene Kelly dancing in the rain.
My soul is from elsewhere, I’m sure of that, and I intend to end up there.
