Tough times ahead. Figured I’d remember what I need to remember.
Grace to remember not certain work, but certain behaviour is what is beneath me.
Humour, because one can never have enough of laughter.
Courage to smile on the days I can’t. Refer above.
Patience to wait till the next corner for life to throw a pleasant surprise. Or maybe the next. Or maybe the one after.
Wisdom to have faith. Funny, I should probably be asking for faith too.
“Pull no punches”. One of the best pieces of advice I got this month (I get a lot, being 22 and about to graduate and bookish).
To not bite may be virtuous, but to not hiss is foolish.
Again, wisdom. To realize I ask for this for myself, not for others. To realize that how I treat people is my choice, and how they treat me is theirs.
Knowledge that I am worth every bit of trouble I take (and get into, for that matter). Also, I’m terribly insignificant. That’s a tough one right there to wrap a head around.
But most importantly, to dare. Every. Single. Time. Forever.
My latest salutation. “May you have the odds in your favour and the gods on your side”.
And oh. Don’t forget to breathe.
