    this is the recipe of life
    said my mother
    as she held me in her arms as i wept
    think of those flowers you plant
    in the garden each year
    they will teach you
    that people too
    must wilt
    fall
    root
    rise
    in order to bloom

    "A company, which asks the job-seeking candidates to give it in writing a road-map as how they are going to make it grow as a condition or clause for their hiring, is most likely making a great financial loss and most probably its boss is seriously contemplating only to close down that particular business on gross."
    ~Anuj Somany

    When you’re twenty-one, life is a roadmap. It’s only when you get to be twenty-five or so that you begin to suspect you’ve been looking at the map upside down, and not until you’re forty are you entirely sure. By the time you’re sixty, take it from me, you’re…lost. —Stephen King

    “be soft. my love.
    because flowers don’t grow.
    on hard grounds.

    HAVE WE EVER COMPLAINED because we are misunderstood, misjudged, misidentified, slandered, misheard, and not heard? Precisely this is our fate – oh, for a long time yet! It is also our distinction; we should not honor ourselves sufficiently if we wished that it were otherwise. We are misidentified – because we ourselves keep growing, keep changing, we shed our old bark, we shed our skins every spring, we keep becoming younger, fuller of future, taller, stronger, we push our roots ever more powerfully into the depths – into evil – while at the same time we embrace the heavens ever more lovingly, more broadly, imbibing their light ever more thirstily with all our twigs and leaves. Like trees we grow – this is hard to understand, as is all of life – not in one place only but everywhere, not in one direction but equally upward and outward and inward and downward; our energy is at work simultaneously in the trunk, branches, and roots; we are no longer free to do only one particular thing, to be only one particular thing. This is our fate, as I have said; we grow in height; and even if this should be our fatality – for we dwell ever closer to the lightning – well, we do not on that account honor it less; it remains that which we do not wish to share, to make public – the fatality of the heights, our fatality.

    I saw my earlier selves as different people, acquaintances I had outgrown. I wondered how I could ever have been some of them.

    A lot of people feel like they’re victims in life, and they’ll often point to past events, perhaps growing up with an abusive parent or in a dysfunctional family. Most psychologists believe that about 85 percent of families are dysfunctional, so all of a sudden you’re not so unique. My parents were alcoholics. My dad abused me. My mother divorced him when I was six…I mean, that’s almost everybody’s story in some form or not. The real question is, what are you going to do now? What do you choose now? Because you can either keep focusing on that, or you can focus on what you want. And when people start focusing on what they want, what they don’t want falls away, and what they want expands, and the other part disappears.
    ‘The Secret’ | Rhonda Byrne

    I wanted to give up the idea I had any control. Shake things up. To be saved by chaos. To see if I could cope, I wanted to force myself to grow again. To explode my comfort zone.
    —Chuck Palahniuk

    I like it when a flower or a little tuft of grass grows through a crack in the concrete. It’s so… heroic.

    You become a woman the first time you stand up for yourself when they get your order wrong at a diner, or when you first realize your parents are full of s.hit. You become a woman the first time you get fitted for a bra and realize you’ve been wearing a very wrong size your whole f.ucking life. You become a woman the first time you fart in front of a boyfriend. The first time your heart breaks. The first time you break someone else’s heart. The first time someone you love dies.
    — Amy Schumer, The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo

    You have to accept that sometimes that’s how things happen in this world. People’s opinions, their feelings, they go one way, then the other. It just so happens you grew up at a certain point in this process.

    We have a choice about how we take what happens to us in our life and whether or not we allow it to turn us. We can become consumed by hate and darkness, or we’re able to regain our humanity somehow, or come to terms with things and learn something about ourselves.

    "A chief reason for an unrealistic price rise, inflation, poor employment generation & economic recession is ‘Right Person in Wrong Position’ leading to implementation of ineffective policy & defective strategy and thereby imperilling the GDP (Growth, Development & Progress) of the nation."

    Eighteen summers I have spent a stunted bud, reliant on the warmth of artificial smiles and the nourishment of falsely sweet promises for survival. I will die of thirst if I do not learn to find my own light. I will not remain stagnant nor my labor remain fruitless. I will cultivate my own barren soul, quench my own parched spirit, aid my own hindered growth; I will blossom into the rose I was always meant to be; I will earn my rightful place in the garden.

    Like a wild flower;
    she spent her days,
    allowing herself
    to grow, not many
    knew of her struggle,
    but eventually all;
    knew of her light.

    even if love didn't
    grow in their heart
    learn to be content
    that it grew in yours

    The holes in your life are permanent. You have to grow around them, like tree roots around concrete; you mould yourself through the gaps.

    ‘You’ve changed’ is an insult often intended to discourage you. Ignore it. This is your growth. Adapting and refining yourself are all necessary parts of the process. So long as you continue to endeavour to be kind and compassionate you have nothing to be ashamed of.
