Counting. You learn to do it as a kid, right? True, But as the years go on, our knowledge of counting gets increased, we learn algebra, and then the more complex maths. But in reality, it all boils down to learning to count. The rest is higher order logic. I think Socrates is onto something here:
Cry as hard as you want to, but just make sure when you’re finished, you never cry over the same thing again.
Don’t go back to your past, you don’t live there anymore.
Personal confidence will make others realize that you have the ability to balance. Balance in a real way as in the way of kickboxing which maybe people said you would never be able to do, balance in the way of maintaining a house, a relationship and a school and work schedule (pretty hectic), and balance in a personal life. Balanc e is critical in all aspects and without balance health cant be found. Taking control makes one realize that balance is possible. thorugh this balance thing happen.
“I have loved the stars too fondly to be fearful of the night.”
Maybe that’s why I couldn’t sleep last night. I’m freaking falling more in love with the night every waking moment so that I can’t sleep when the night is around. It sounds more attractive than insomnia. The night is not something to be afraid of, once you have the right resources; inner strength, personal self confidence, and people who believe in the fact that you could kick booty. Then all you have to do is believe in yourself too, and you are golden 😛
The end of the semester was a whirlwind of activity. It made me realize several things, all of which needed to be seen, some of which were not fun to realize. It made me realize that if you’re faced with the choice and you have to choose, you’ve got to choose the one that means the most to you. You cant choose on other people’s wishes, based on how they would react to a scheme. The event led me to withdraw from the world, not actually such a bad gig. I need to get back out there now. I’m done with this craziness, and I want to be the old You cant wait for people to catch up to your dreams. You basically have to go out and chase them, and hope some people follow you along. This “knowledge” is coming off a long stream of failure, however i think failure brings desire for self improvement.
People have different ways of dealingwith stress. They will try to talk through it, some will will write stuff out and others try to hold the feelings inside til they bubble up and affect their lives. I am a mush of these types. I love the fact that Physical outlets uch as kickboxing and yoga exist. If not for this I would probably have gone batshit insane by now.
Any thoughts on meditation versus physical stress relievers and their impact on lives?
“In living we die, in dying we live.”
This quote, taken from a book many many years ago, I can’t help but relate it to my studies of biology, and my life as it runs its course at this time. We feel most alive sometimes when we are in fact dying at this very moment, at an actual astounding rate. We are doing research into preserving life, and in fact for the amount of people dying each moment, getting nowhere fast.
The pain and suffering endured by people today lead us to do extraordinary things in our pursuit of better lives. One thing i have taken to heart while studying at Lehigh University is there are all different people and you have to be open to new opinions.
