The Happy Secret To Better Work
"One of the reasons I got into fighting was because I’d never really been in a fight. It’s like in Fight Club, the famous line, ‘How much can you really know about yourself if you’ve never been in a fight?’…It’s the the clearest mirror you’ll ever stand in front of."
— Jon Fitch
Rick Hanson in Buddha’s Brian:
It’s a general moral principle that the more power you have over someone, the greater duty it is to use that power benevolently. Well, who is the one person in the world you have the greatest power over? It’s your future self. You hold that life in your hands, and what it will be depends on how you care for it.
"…And please remember that you were beautiful before he told you that you were."
— Thank you so much for this, h-allo.

My black belt test will officially be this Saturday. I am at a vastly improved place compared to where I was a few weeks ago. I feel nervous, but also prepared. The most important things I can do now are relax and BREATHE.
I can’t believe the day is almost here.
