''somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond” by e.e. cummings

somewhere i have never travelled, gladly beyond
any experience, your eyes have their silence:
in your most frail gesture are things which enclose me,
or which i cannot touch because they are too near

your slightest look will easily unclose me
though i have closed myself as fingers,
you open always petal by petal myself as Spring opens
(touching skilfully,mysteriously) her first rose

or if your wish be to close me, i and
my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
as when the heart of this flower imagines
the snow carefully everywhere descending;

nothing which we are to perceive in this world equals
the power of your intense fragility: whose texture
compels me with the color of its countries,
rendering death and forever with each breathing

(i do not know what it is about you that closes
and opens; only something in me understands
the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses)
nobody, not even the rain, has such small hands

About Life

You don't have to control conditions to be happy. Your objective must be joy! Holding onto "what could have been" will hold you back from what is available to you now in this moment!

In a relationship, when you are with someone focus on what makes you happy, when you are without someone focus on what makes you happy!

Don't be dependent on another for your own happiness. You choose your own happiness, and you are only responsible for yourself.

Just "BE" because you can have everything, even if the way it started changes and evolves.

Have more fun, love more, play more, be light about life, you can't get it wrong if you are living in your Joy!

lessons on love

When you magnify something, it doesn't actually change the size of the object, it simply changes your perspective!

It's in the letting go that we create a space for relationships and situations to change and evolve into what they are meant to be. If you hold on, then you restrict the natural progression of how things should naturally unfold.

"love is not to be found in someone else, but in our selves; we simply awaken it. but in order to do that, we need the other person. the universe only makes sense when we have someone to share our feelings with."

3 things I learnt today

1. It’s not your job to “make” people happy, it’s your job to be you.
2. Every stumbling block is really a stepping stone in disguise!
3. If someone wants to be with you, they'll make the effort.

Is it time to take a look at yourself in the mirror, and be honest about where you are in your life?

7 things to a happier life

1. Stop being afraid of what can go wrong.
2. Don't lock away your heart to avoid pain.
3. The bigger the risk, the bigger the reward.
4. Focus on what is going right and see that your life is full of possibility.
5. Look at what you've already achieved.
6. Don't let your past dictate your future.
7. You are a creator of your own destiny.

Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect, being happy is having a positive sense of gratitude for what you already have in your life.

Life in crosswords

In life, as in crosswords, some days are harder than others, and that's what keeps your brain alive. The key to surviving those tough days is to pick yourself up and stay focused on your life's purpose

a thought

You should always leave loved ones with loving words. It may be the last time you see them.
