"Forgiveness is a part of unconditional love. Forgive yourself throughout the day for all the moments when you are not high, not loving, and not wise. Forgive others for all the moments they are not high, loving, and wise. As you forgive, you make it easier to become those things you want to be, and you make it easier for others to become them also."
"Hurt people hurt people. That’s how pain patterns gets passed on,
generation after generation after generation. Break the chain today.
Meet anger with sympathy, contempt with compassion, cruelty with
kindness. Greet grimaces with smiles. Forgive and forget about finding
fault. Love is the weapon of the future."
“Each man has only one genuine vocation - to find the way to himself. His task is to discover his own destiny - not an arbitrary one - and live it out wholly and resolutely within himself. Everything else is only a would-be existence, an attempt at evasion, a flight back to the ideals of the masses, conformity; and fear of one’s inwardness.”
It was relatively warm and humid, and I figured it'd be as buggy as hell.
I went anyway.
Buggy, warm, humid, tons of trash on the trail since it is Fall and the leaves are dropping like crazy.
I *hated* this run as I started it...
It was too warm, and very humid, and my Garmin was glitching, so I couldn't even get it to give me my mile pace...
I got the Garmin to behave around the end of mile 1, but that was annoyingly late...
I hit a spot several miles in where there was this wasp orgy going on, on the trail, and I almost landed my left foot on it, but instead I did this instinctive lateral off my right foot that made me land on my left foot with leftward momentum that *really* made my left ankle go "WTF!"
I had to walk that out, but it went away, and I started again...
I hated this run, but I finished it. And strangely, ended up thinking it was what it was supposed to be. And I ended up loving it for what it was, since it was more than I ever expected when I started out. :-)
"See if you can catch yourself complaining in either speech or thought, about a situation you find yourself in, what other people do or say, your surroundings, your life situation, even the weather. To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself a victim. Leave the situation or accept it. All else is madness."
I've had SiteMeter on this blog since I think 2004? I remember installing it a long time ago, back when SiteMeter was pretty primitive. Always the free version, because this blog isn't commercial, it is instead mostly me doing graffiti.
That being said, I snapped in the Java script version a month or two ago, and I've been kinda amused by the results. Particularly in and out clicks. Particularly, lately. Ok, today.
There are a lot of regulars, and I tip my hat to them. If you keep coming back here, it is because I'm posting things that amuse you, and we probably have a similar sense of humor, and, well, :-)
There is also hella level traffic off a Chemistry Cat post I did back in 2011, and I'm not clear on why, but you guys are welcome as well, and you might find some funny stuff if you look around a bit more.
There is also an oddity, a repeating visitor, and I've had an intuition about who that was. iPad, lately. Predictable times. Likes to go back to certain dates. *shrug*...
“Most people never analyze themselves. Mentally they are mechanical products of the factory of their environment, preoccupied with breakfast, lunch, and dinner, working and sleeping, and going here and there to be entertained. They don’t know what or why they are seeking, nor why they never realize complete happiness and lasting satisfaction. By evading self-analysis, people go on being robots, conditioned by their environment. True self-analysis is the greatest art of progress.”
Nothing here specifically reflects on someone unless I call them out by name. Instead, it is just a collection of stuff I think is funny, or find interesting. If you are offended, that is about you and not about me.
