do it knowing you did the right thing, for yourself.
The right moment is now. It has not passed, and it’s not coming at some point in the future, or tomorrow.
If you have been waiting for a sign, this is it.
“Your defining act of love for your child will not be the 2:00 AM feedings, the sleepless, fretful night spent beside him in the hospital, or the second job you took to pay for college.
Your zenith will occur in the face of a withering blast of frightening rage from your child, in allowing no rage from yourself in response. Your finest moment may well be your darkest. And you will be a parent.” (Michael J. Bradley)
It was probably one of the earliest attempts at figuring out efficient ways for AI and humans to communicate. Timid in its approach. Some say we should build walls, some say we should build barriers. Some say we should restrict Internet access and restrict access to information to make ourselves feel safe.
All i can say is … Alexa … have a good night.
I’ll start here.
if i am not forcing myself to be someone i am not, then nothing that anyone says about who i am can affect me, because i simply am honest about myself.
if i feel insecure, threatened, always having to defend myself, then there’s a chance i am simply pretending to be someone i am not.
I had no idea i was saving the single pack of Raspberry Softies for her, as i unpacked all the supplies. The guy wanted to take it and put it in the box, but i told him that’s for me, so we left it in the car as we carried everything inside.
I then saw her asking for something from the lady at the reception and the lady came back with a slice of bread and a pate can from the things i had brought and gave it to her. She took it and went to her backpack and was placing them inside. I keep wondering right now, why she didn’t receive any of the biscuits or the wavers or the coffee from what i brought earlier, but it’s not up to me to decide who gets what, i just provide. I do hope that everyone does their job and the goods get to the people i intend to receive them.
Then i realized that i saved the box of Raspberry Softies for her. I went to my car and got it, went back inside.
As i leaned in to give her the box, she froze.
Her eyes glued to it, and it broke my heart. It took her a few seconds to move. Her hand was trembling as she reached for the box and when she finally looked at me, i could see her eyes questioning confused why am i doing this. I could almost feel that she hasn’t been treated like a human being in god knows how long. I gave her 10$ and that confused her even more. She looked at the money and the box again and i took the opportunity to leave.
and i believe in people

It’s no fun to play the game all by yourself
If you have no opponent, build one. Provide the opportunity for him, allow him to grow, and become a challenge. Play together.
It’s all about the process and it’s all about you. Believe in yourself and there will be two.
