So far I’ve gotten through half of the day without being “fooled” but there is still plenty of time. We’ll see how it goes. (by the way, if you haven’t checked out Google’s joke, head over to their website and follow your nose)
The weather is finally starting to warm up and with it comes new growth, new life, and my renewed dedication to being fully present in everything I do. When I’m at work, I work. When I’m studying, I study. Etc. etc. etc. In that spirit, I submit to you 15 Assumptions That Might be Useful to Make. This list was originally posted on The Belle Jar, which is a lovely blog and you should check it out. But here it goes!
1. Assume that you are loved.
2. Assume that those who love you find some kind of value in you and the things you do.
3. Assume, however, that you don’t need to be valuable in order to be worthy of love.
4. Assume that there is no one out there keeping a tally of all of your failings, ready to throw it in your face when you’re either feeling too good or too awful about yourself.
5. Assume that if anyone actually is keeping a tally of all your failings, that act says more about them than it does about you.
6. Assume that you can’t make all of the people happy all of the time; maybe not even some of the people some of the time.
7. Assume that you will, over the course of your life, sometimes anger or disappoint the people you love.
8. Assume that when this happens, it isn’t the end of the world, even if that’s what it feels like.
For the last 7, head on over to The Belle Jar.
Have a lovely Monday!
