realizing 2004

to be truly happy and free,
let go of the things/people you can't be free from.

and understand and accept that they're not yours
and that their staying is beyond your control.

realizing this, you'll accept and appreciate them for what they are,
hopefully with little expectations, if none at all.

pain is always caused by failed expectations.
less expectations, less hangups, less pain.

it takes strength and time to achieve this level of understanding of things, of oneself.

but once you do, you wake up in the morning and everything is suddenly a notch better.
there's more color, more feeling, more taste, more meaning.

remember the past, but don't cling to it.
highlight the essence, the lessons and note them in your present and future.
LIVE your present, DON'T WORRY about the future, PLAN for it.

it's so good to be alive that it should be enjoyed, felt and experienced with zest!

i will not let other people control my life and dictate my happiness.
it is mine.
and i have full power over it.

i must drive my destiny.
i am the champion of my own cause!
