Good relationship is partnership and friendship as well.
I always knew I will not live a very typical life, I always knew that I don't blend to any cultural background, that I will stay aloof despite being in crowds. I have always been aware that being mixed raced I will not belong to any race completely. And the fact that I have lived in many countries and been introduced to different cultures and languages made me different. My accent is a bit different and my world visions may vary and probably I perceive the world in a broader lense. I have fully accepted my difference in a society. Now, I see my shortcomings as strengths.
The Most Beautiful Restaurant in Japan - Kyoto Kitcho
I have witten down the script from the video, here it is:
"There is a special feeling in the air which is distinct to Kyoto.
The mountains, the rivers, and nature are the distinctive features of the landscape, as well as the townscape are all united in this valley.
Very often some unpleasant situations or bad situations, bring something good, in other words, we can find wisdom in adversity if we trully understand it and learn from it. If one door is closed another is opened and sometimes even better.
When we are aware that we are here for only limited time, we become more and more aware of present moment, our longing to live every moment to the optimum rises. And to experience all possibilites that life can provide. We give importance to time, because we learn that life is made of time. We start making wise, right, good, brave and sometimes risky desicions that drive us to more liveliness. We become more loving and receptive to love.
You can change many things about you, your clothes, your body, hair colour, even eye colour, but looks are not what attracts people to you, it is whats inside that matters.
" Your Thoughts Will Heal or Kill You." Marisa Peer
In society that profits from your self doubt, loving yourself is a rebellious act.
It's ok to live a life that others don't understand.
Falling down is an accident. Staying down is a choice.
Show respect even to people who dont deserve it, not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours.
Do not learn how to react. But how to respond.
Dont count the days. Make the days count.
Jim Kwik has amazing thoughts and truths on his instagrame, some of which I would like to share here:
If you want to know what is truly important to someone, watch where they put their time, energy and focus.
Do you have a problem? Yes. Can you do something about it ? Yes. Then don't worry.
Do you have a problem? Yes. Can you do something about it ? No. Then don't worry.
Dear men, close your eyes. Imagine you have a daughter. Imagine she is dating a guy just like you. Did you smile ? No. Then change.
