"a pattern of positive achievement creates a pattern of positive attitude"
this next one i got from a line i heard in the miniseries The Pacific... It was one of the last episodes with Eugene Sledge talking. What he said
range a bell in my head as I was going through a confusing time in my life. I didn't know what I wanted to do with anything from school, to work to
relationships. So when I heard this line, it helped me and then I wrote something just improv and from my heart that ended up being inspirational to
me in my journal that will follow the quote. I give you now, what he and I following, said, out of my own private journal with the intention of giving
something small to help all in any way. Here goes:
He said, "You see that? That's why I'm still a bachelor. I don't dance until Eugene Sledge wants to dance."
What I wrote to myself in my journal: "Remember not to feel pressure to be with women, to get a career immediately, right now, just because someone
wants you to. Don't succumb to fear or feel hurried. You dance when you want to; you make the choices. But make sure you make them and don't use
this new found "freedom" as an excuse to do nothing. Be inspired, be brave and feel free. Thousands of your male ancestors from a successful line of
father to son, await for your return, and cheer YOU on!... YOU! are a miracle! Know you have the freedom to do whatever you want, and be anything and
everything you want to be. Honor the past and love the now - every moment - by being your own personal miracle. And give all of who you are... and
help save this world."
After reading it a few times, I eventually changed some of it but most of it is exactly the same the way it came out. I actually just added stuff
since the first time I wrote it. Hope it helps.
Sorry if this wasn't initially allowed but these are two of my favorite Buddha quotes... they need to be heeded and lived by example by all people
"Hatred does not cease by hatred, but only by love; this is the eternal rule."
"Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned." -Buddha
