a kind of wisdom

Be the messenger of positivity, the bringer of kindness, and the bearer of humility. In other words, be the best person that you can possibly be, each and every day.

When you plant seeds in the garden, you don’t dig them up every day to see if they have sprouted yet. You simply water them and clear away the weeds; you know that the seeds will grow in time. Similarly, just do your daily practice and cultivate a kind heart. Abandon impatience and instead be content creating the causes for goodness; the results will come when they’re ready.

Whatever has happened,
Has happened for good.

Whatever is happening,
Is happening for good.

Whatever will happen,
Shall also happen for good.

What have you lost,
That you cry for?

What did you bring,
That you lost?

What did you create,
That was destroyed?

You came empty handed,
And will go empty handed.

What is yours today,
Was somebody else’s yesterday,
And will be somebody else’s tomorrow.

Here is to my best friend:

You are my rock and my wall,
The keeper of my secrets and fears.

You are tough and kind,
You carry wisdom and patience,
And you’re empathic to the core.

You’re courageous and loving,
And even when I’m fired up
you know just what to say
to bring me back to being me.

Your laugh is one of the most contagious I know,
and just thinking about it makes me smile.
There never goes a time spent with you, that’s lacking of fun.

You’re the first one who made me comfortable to trust and open up like I did with you.
You carry one of the biggest hearts I know
And I’m impressed by all the love you give!

Whatever obstacles life throws at me,
I know I can always count on you!
Thank you for always being my number 2!
