“I would rather die an individual than live my life as a clone.”
― Christine Marrero
You know when people ask the question: What do you like to do? I would never dare say. "Umm... you know, like, shopping and stuff ", but it's the truth.
I've found that I take this opportunity to impress the listener with how multifaceted and intelligent I am. Leaving out activities that may seem shallow or gluttonous I construct a version of myself that's incomplete.
“You don’t have to let the surroundings and occurrences of your world bring you stress. You can choose to give them love and appreciation.
Instead of handing out judgments about every little frustration, annoyance and disturbance, you can exude peace and positive purpose.
Instead of letting life get to you, let real, authentic joy flow forth from you.
You are perfectly capable of being ever peaceful, even though you may not always be in peaceful surroundings. You are easily and naturally able to be continually positive, regardless of what may come your way.
The quality of your life in every moment is your decision. Peace is not a place or even an external condition, but a choice of how you are.
Let go of conflicting thoughts about how life is supposed to be.
Live life simply and purely as you choose to be.”
