quote #1

from: The Book of Secrets: Unlocking the Hidden Dimensions of Your Life, First published September 28, 2004

"If you obsess over whether you are making the right you are making the right decision,
 You are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.。
 The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling,and action that you experience."
Deepak Chopra

quote #2

from my collection of posts about positivity/recovery

 "it's so easy to deny yourself basic things, like food and sleep, in order to punish yourself.
  but you deserve better. you deserve tasty foods that make you smile, to sleep in and go to bed early, to be warm and cozy. you never have to "earn" that.
 you deserve all of that and more just by existing. you're allowed to be kind to yourself. kindness is brave."

lyrics #1

from an innoncent man, released 1983

 "I don't care what consequence it brings
I have been a fool for lesser things
I want you so bad
I think you ought to know that
I intend to hold you for the longest time"
Billy joel

quote #3

from my collection of posts about positivity/recovery

 "kindness is such a beautiful thing. compliment people you see and tell your friends you appreciate them. make your s/o random cards or gifts. remind people that you love them.
 tell yourself that you look amazing. make conversation with a friend who isn't the best at initiating it. tip the waiter who serves you or the nervous teenager busking.
 give your dog some extra hugs and yourself some extra rest and love. leave an encouraging comment on someone's post. kindness can make such a difference in the world.
 even if it seems small to you, the simplest actions can completely turn someone's day around. remember to choose kindness."

quote #4

from my collection of posts about positivity/recovery

"Nothing I've read has changed me more than "you do people a favor by accepting their help" like I repeat this constantly to so many people because it's true!!!
People like to feel useful, they like to feel kind, they like to feel like they have an ability to impact people's lives so just let them!!
Not everything is a thing to be owed back- accept people's kindness without making a competition out of it."

quote #5

from my collection of posts about positivity/recovery

"[grabs your shirt] listen. listen to me. the practical is holy. the everyday is sacred. the simple act of surviving is divine.
do you get it? sanctity begins at home, in the hands thatbuild and the lives we live and the deaths we die and the worms that eat our bodies.
if making something by hand is not worthy of veneration then nothing is."

lyrics #2

from heart station, released 2008

Beautiful world 迷わず君だけを見つめている
Beautiful boy 自分の美しさまだ知らないの
It's only love"


"If just one of my wishes were to come true
I’d wish that you’d let me sleep next to you
Anywhere is fine by me
Beautiful world. Staring without hesitation at you and you alone
Beautiful boy. You still don’t know how beautiful you are
It’s only love"
Hikaru utada

lyrics #3

from final fantasy xiv: stormblood

"陽炎の如く消えた 恋ひ恋ふ吾が君
長き別れが来たり 幾度願へども
千年の暁 臥い乞う夜 過ぎて
三世を羽ばたけど ゆくえなく
一念に流すは 濃い紅の涙よ
願わくば吾が君 生き出で給へ
心念に終得て 恋ひ恋ふ身
朽ちたら 君待つ彼方へと"


"As the light of the setting sun fades, bid farewell to me beloved
In these fleeting moments hold my hand, as I whisper a silent prayer
Should dawn never break on this thousand thousand year night, I promise
Should I take to wing and seek you in every distant sky...
One last breath and I fracture, shatter─crimson sorrow, endless, boundless
One more life for us, one more chance─for this I pray, I beg, I plead
Dreams of you and me in my heart I hold forevermore, as I falter
Wait for me, wait for me my love..."
Masayoshi Soken, Natsuko Ishikawa
