Here is the only thing you can do to change the world. Change yourself. There is nothing else, which lies within your power except you…You can engage in uplifting behaviors, which help you to think more clearly and live your life’s destiny…What if every human being in the world was suddenly struck with the following belief: I cannot do harm or permit harm to be done to another human being. What would the world look like then? ==> Keep reading here http://thedailylove.com/so-you-want-to-change-the-world/
Here’s to the crazy ones.
The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently.
They’re not fond of rules.
And they have no respect for the status quo.
You can praise them, disagree with them, quote them,
disbelieve them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them.
Because they change things.
They invent. They imagine. They heal.
They explore. They create. They inspire.
They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art?
Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written?
Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.
While some see them as the crazy ones,
we see genius.
Because the people who are crazy enough to think
they can change the world, are the ones who do.
This guy was attending college in Canada and just decided to pack his bags, move to bangladesh in order to fight poverty. He call’s his project ( which isn’t a charity or anything formal) the uncultured project. He’s name is Sean Ahmed
Please visit his site, he’s an inspiration for all of us who want to contribute into making this world a better place right now and for the future generations:
This is so motivating & inspiring. It’s simply the truth
Yes…i knew that before i got involded in one. Um’
No…actually i didin’t even think about it. Because
Yes…he was everything i was dreaming of and more. and
Yes…i got swept away. but
No…i don’t regret it at all. Even though
Yes…this is really difficult, frustrating and sometimes seems like it leads to nowhere because every plan we make to see each other somehow fails. but
No…i won’t give up, thats not even an option, he is the man for me and i am the woman for him. Our connection is just to “easy” and real.
So there, i just have to suck it up!
So i watched the movie Wall street last night, and not to reveal anything, i just felt like pointing out a certain issue related to it but more generaly to women and myself!
In the movie, they are three main actors: Micheal douglas , Shia laboeuf and Carey mulligan. Which i all think are wonderful and very talented actors. I specially apreciate Shia laboeuf with the way he apporiates each character he plays plus he is quite charismatic and charming to me. Anyways, what i really wan’t to talk about is The character played by Carey mulligan which is Winnie Gekko, daughter of Gordon Gekko played by Micheal douglas and also engaged to Jake Moore , an ambitious wall street investment banker. Winnie is a portrayed as someone who is sweet, caring, loyal and who has little to no interest in money. Infact she kind of despise the whole concept of Wall street because of her father. Ok enough spoilers, the point i’m getting to is that she seemed very much so naive to me, you’ll find out why when you watch the movie. To the point where i was kind of annoyed by her even though she was obviously such a required character in the movie ( being the link between Gordon and Jake).
These type of women often get me angry in movies so much that i enjoy insulting the character after watching them, calling them “so stupid and gullible” and even stating that they deserve what they get. Today though, it kind of just came to me that actually i was insulting myself, because although i like to believe that i’m such a strong woman and that i could never be in those situations, the truth is that’s exactly me. I’m always giving everyone the benefit of the doubt, i let people i care for take advantage of my kindness again and again and i’m pretty much a fool when it comes to love. All of this might seem pretty negative but in reality i actually am very happy and proud to be this “naive” woman. Because at the end of the day, i can’t feel bad for loving, trusting and wanting people to be the best that they can’t be. That does not mean i let people walk all over me, trust me, i’m a very opiniated girl who has some strong beliefs and principles and who know’s just how much she is worth as person. Its just that i have no reason to be apprehensive and defensive towards people i have yet to get to know…Anyways, i’m already such a private person that revealing too much for them to use against me is not really possible…plus i really have to feel comfortable to let you in on who i really am so no worries there. I just keep an open heart and a little bit of love and appreciation for everyone because Lord knows people need that in life.
I’m thankful that people in my life feel like they can rely on me no matter what. And if i feel like i can’t help them for whatever reason, i know i can let them know and the ones who truly care about me will understand and even support my decision. Also, i’ve learned to give myself to people with a certain limit. I only give you as much importance you give me. And that way, our status as being only good friends, aquaintances, coworkers, party friends and others is clear. And finally when i get involded in a relationship, i always make sure my partner knows where i stand regarding different topics . Things like communication, infidelity, trust, commitment are discussed on a regular basis just so we know if we are on the same page!
Plus this naive thing is really what makes me charming you know! lol
Also , how cute are Shia laboeuf and Carey mulligan, actually a real life couple!
Him: What are you watching on t.v?
Me: A show called “Say yes to the dress” on TLC, it’s women who try on different wedding dresses to find the one
Him: so have you thought about your wedding dress?
Me: Not really ( such a lie obviously, i know exactly the one i wan’t lol), I just know it’s going to be a classic dress with a few elegant details nothing pouffy!
Me: Plus i’m not really the type of girl to think about these stuff…like wedding stuff!
Him: Really? I thought girls plan this since their children
Me: Well not me.
Him: ok. well i already know what i’m going to wear at my wedding
Me: Really? Tell me
Him: Some converse, a white leather vest and a chinese shirt underneath
Me: ( Thinking WTH)! lol you kidding right babe?
Him: Um’ no. why?
Me: Oh nothing ( smirks). I guess whatever you want to wear is fine cuz its your day….
When i was younger , i remember reading different story’s about first loves, how they where so amazing. Some even mentionned that you could never get over your first love and even if you dig , no other love could ever compare. Stating that it’s something that touches you so deeply and that is so pure, it can never be replaced. Sure you will find someone else you’ll love very much and whom you might decide to spend the rest of your life with but that first love will forever remain in your heart.
Well thinking about all of that regarding “my current romantic situation” i came to the conclusion that there are three explanations: Either thoses statements are simply *Bull*(insert bad word here) or is true for some people only or i mistaken my first love! The reason why i say this is because, i’m currently dating the most wonderful guy for me. We met a few months ago through Facebook ( yes, facebook lol) …anyways the details of our meeting is crazy ( i’ll let you know some other time) . The thing i want to simply put outhere is that i feel so sure about life with him. Everything is just so much easier. Now don’t get me wrong, we have our little disagreements and he does things that annoy me and oh did i mention he lives about 300 miles away from me…Plus i’m sure, i annoy him too sometimes…Nonetheless, he is every bit of the kind of man i’ve always wanted and much more. In every way possible, he brings out the best in me. He encourages me in everything i do, he’s tolerant, loving and generous. He know’s how to make me feel better in 5 mins tops, he always has the right words and the right way to say them. He understands me ( So very important) and not because we always think alike ( because we mostly do) but because he listen to what i say and you know how we girls never really say what we mean, like we never just bluntly say things ( well at least i don’t lol), well he automatically gets what i’m trying to explain even better than i do sometimes . Lol, that is crazy! So either he’s psychic without being aware of it or he just really gets me! Ahhh let me tell you, that it is so refreshing, to have somebody get the ”real you” . Well all that to say that he is the one for me. And more than being the right fit for me, he just is point blank a great guy. He loves interacting with people, often he tells me about people he met during the day. He has this way of finding the most interesting things in people that others wouldn’t even think about. He loves life and everything positive. No matter what hits him, he keeps going ( i call him Superman :)). He’s ambitious, conscious and responsible.
He sings for me, he tells me poems, he’s always giving me advice ( in the right way). We can litteraly talk about anything…from the most important discussion to the silliest of topics, we always connect and i always feel at the end , that i’ve learned more, about him, , about love, about how to be a better me, about how to be happier, about life in general! And above all of that I believe in him with all my heart because he is confident, his actions reflect his words and he goes for what he want’s in the most positive and respectful way. I could continue praising him all day because he truly is an amazing person. But i’ll stop there for now.
I just have to mention that even when realizing some of his flaws ( as he is human after all), i simply aknowledge them and discuss them with him. Anyway, i have this belief that the flaws you see in others does not make them less perfect, i feel it says more about the level of compatibility between you and that person that otherwise. And of course , i’m not talking about things like violence or abuse, which for me are unacceptable. I’m referring more too common personnality flaws people find in each other. For me, it’s all about the perception that you have of a person, sometimes they might not even really have the flaw you see in them. Circumstances or your perception of things could explain why you would see a certain flaw in a person. And while some flaws are truly there, the person might just not be rigth for you, because some would be able to put up with a person’s flaws that you couldn’t have put up with. Well enough about that!
Just to sum it up…He is my first love because this is how love is suppose to feel ==> Fufilling, Nourishing to the soul and just right in every way possible. Now that i’ve met him, i can truly say that i’m in love. I’m happy all the time for no apparent reason, i feel complete, more confident and more secure. I strive to be better mostly for me and because he inspires me to do so. He brings me so much and at the same time, he makes me aware of what i bring myself and the things i should be grateful to have in my life and for the kind of person i am. Now i only wish that i bring him as much as he brings me!
I’ll add that often people don’t share so many things about there relationship with the whole internet world, they hesitate or there worried that there being foolish because if things would be to end, they would feel stupid for saying everything they said before about the person being the right one…Lol i’m mostly talking about me and how i would have acted in the past…but this time, i can truly say that i will NEVER , yeah i said NEVER , regret writting this about the person i love because no matter what happens in our relationship, even if we part ways ( which i don’t believe will happen) i will forever be thankfull to have met such a wonderful human being, someone who with so little brings me so very much and i will be happy that we got to cherish the moments we had together.
And in the case, he isn’t my first love than i really don’t know what the heck was that so called relationship i called ”first love” because it just doesn’t even compare…he is my only love, he is the yin to my yang and yes, we are the kind of couple that is always mushy around each other and whom annoys the shit out of people because they got weird ass nick names for each other lol. But i think its sweet, i mean the guy sings for me all the time ( and he is not a singer although he has the sweetest voice ever) , how many girls can say that there boyfriend sings for them??!! Not that many ( hell i don’t know any other girl)!
So it’s official i’m the luckiest girl in the world. And i wish everybody gets lucky like me!
I’ll live you with a quote from the Bible i really love:
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.
It is not rude, it is not self-seeking,
It is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always preserves.” 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
