About time...

It's been five years since I had my last tattoo. And since then, I have been thinking a lot about my next one. What and where? Now I have decided to have a quote at the inside of my left underarm, but I still have some quotes to choose between. I'm pretty sure it will be one of these:

This one is made for me. I am so afraid to let go and love someone completely. Every time I fall in love, I get so scared of being hurt, that I pull myself back. I need to learn to love without fear...

The upper one is free translated something like this: "Nothing is impossible for someone who's positive." - Chinese proverb. The bottom one is not one of the quotes I want to have. I just like it so it is on my wall for inspiration :)

This one has been my favorite since before last Christmas.

Free translated: "Bad things doesn't have any meaning, but it's your challenge finding a meaning to it."
I've experienced some bad things in my life, but I've always tried to find a meaning with everything that happens...

This has become one of my favorites the last couple of weeks.

All of these things we students do...

I was supposed to read...

But instead I wrote a letter... 

Fixed my time-schedule... 

Planned the email I should send out for "Røynda" - the student newspaper... 

Planned a course in Layout... 

Sent out a long email to the members of "Røynda"... 

And then I went outside to check for mail - ka'ching... 

I think I'll try again tomorrow...

Philosophy of the day:

- I am so much better than I think I am.

And so are you!

The invitation, by Oriah Mountain Dreamer

It doesn’t interest me
what you do for a living.
I want to know
what you ache for
and if you dare to dream
of meeting your heart’s longing.

It doesn’t interest me
how old you are.
I want to know 
if you will risk 
looking like a fool
for love
for your dream
for the adventure of being alive.

It doesn’t interest me
what planets are 
squaring your moon...
I want to know
if you have touched
the centre of your own sorrow
if you have been opened
by life’s betrayals
or have become shrivelled and closed
from fear of further pain.

I want to know
if you can sit with pain
mine or your own
without moving to hide it
or fade it
or fix it.

I want to know
if you can be with joy
mine or your own
if you can dance with wildness
and let the ecstasy fill you 
to the tips of your fingers and toes
without cautioning us
to be careful
to be realistic
to remember the limitations
of being human.

It doesn’t interest me
if the story you are telling me
is true.
I want to know if you can
disappoint another
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear
the accusation of betrayal
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be faithless
and therefore trustworthy.

I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty
every day.
And if you can source your own life
from its presence.

I want to know
if you can live with failure
yours and mine
and still stand at the edge of the lake
and shout to the silver of the full moon,

It doesn’t interest me
to know where you live
or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up
after the night of grief and despair
weary and bruised to the bone
and do what needs to be done
to feed the children.

It doesn’t interest me
who you know
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the centre of the fire
with me
and not shrink back.

It doesn’t interest me
where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know 
what sustains you
from the inside
when all else falls away.

I want to know
if you can be alone 
with yourself
and if you truly like
the company you keep
in the empty moments.

...that I was tough enough to face a conflict without (always) wanting to cry...
...that I always had the energy that I have had this evening...
...that I could just have willpower enough to read my damn books for school so that I don't have to read it ALL right before the exams...
...that I could just be stronger than I am now...

I will!
