Just posted this to my Facebook page.. It’s my own version of Buddha’s words, but much more fitting for my life.
In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how eagerly you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
So far, I have learned that I love too much, I don’t always live eagerly enough, and I need to work on this gracefully letting go thing..
I won’t elaborate. Yes, things are fine. No, I’m not perfect. I need to get a hold of myself and just work on being awesome. I often place too many expectations on others, and the end result is just me getting let down. I need to knock that shit off.
I am my own. I am lucky and fortunate. I have everything I could possibly want or need. I need to work on appreciating it all. It’s so easy to lose sight of all this, and instead focus on the things I can’t have, or don’t have but really want. We will all be okay.
