(The most fun hike of them all in Oahu, Hawaii)
I’ve been reading so much these past few days, been sleeping so much as well, I’m getting stronger slowly, suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion (gist from Muhammad Ali).
Another favorite Chinese Writer wrote something, I really enjoy!
The kind of love that endures is different: it is quiet, it is patient, and it is, in many ways, very boring.
It’s the kind of love that accepts their partner in their entirety - blemishes and all.
It’s the kind of love that builds up others, with no agenda or expectation of reciprocity.
It’s the kind of love that is fearless and unafraid to be the one which loves the other more.
It’s the kind of love that doesn’t see the other party as a object to possess, show off or “win,” but part of a greater “us,” a team capable of building great things together that neither can accomplish on their own.
The kind of love that understands and accepts their own strengths and flaws and that of their partner without judgement … and knows how they best dovetail together.
The kind of love which takes delight in encouraging/sharpening their partners’ strengths, while gracefully accepting their weaknesses and flaws.
The kind of love that knows and sees you in your worst, most ungracious and horrible moments … and loves you anyway.
That kind of love kicks the shit out of the horomone-filled First Love you experienced as a teenager.
But it takes some time to realize it.
God knows, it’s taken me decades.
