Give Me Strife and Suffering (but in manageable doses)

"Life is suffering," said Buddha. His plan? Release your attachments to this world and end your suffering.

I'm not with Buddha on this one. Give me strife and suffering. And once I have grown stronger, tempered, hardened by the strife, give me MORE.

Life is strife, suffering, struggle. Your body and mind are kept alive by a series of violent chemical reactions, your heartbeat, the acid in your stomach, the cells constantly breaking apart and dying as new ones are created, the battle towards homeostatis with different bacteria and cells combating each other, all inside your body.

Your mind - your thoughts - may come into conflict, especially when you're trying to do meaningful things. It's easy to feel the pull of distraction and ease, and to choke up and pause in fear when you look at the mountain you're set to climb. The mind is not in harmony, especially at the beginning. Struggle, strife, conflict, suffering.

I say - give it to me! But not so fast that it will break me. I must be pragmatic. We must be pragmatic. We have our limits. We can expand them over time. It's not brave to go into the gym for the first time and try to lift 400 pounds. It's foolhardy, unrealistic, stupid. Being pragmatic, aware of our limits takes its own sort of courage.

On Shut Up and Take My Hand

I've been happy recently :)

And yesterday, I tried to write, both a poem and a post and I failed both. Block I guess~ anyways, that's already off topic ehehehe >.>

Even though I've been happy, its not like I don't still get those moments, but lets just say ummm they're far easier to ignore. In general, just been a lot lot happier. I've noticed the change in me for a while, as have my friends and family, and hopefully that means something goooood~!

Still going to go through with all the *help* I'm going to be getting, oh yeah I need to keep you guys posted on that don't I ^0^

Hmmm I don't know how to explain this feeling, most of the time I'm looking forward to things, missing things of course, but it seems like I'm being far more positive or optimistic. Which by the way, I already am. I'm generally rather optimistic and more so, idealistic.
