The Tao of Wu.

Via on Oct 2, 2012

I think about this often.

What is it that makes us want to push or pull? Why do we worry about what other people think? Get anxious about how everything is going to turn out?

Whether we’re listening to Wu Tang or Dr. Seuss, it’s true either way:

Be genuine.

Be relaxed.

Work hard.

Do that Golden Rule thing for real.

The people who belong in your life will be there.

(It really is that simple.)

    There is a saying, "Why make someone a priority when you are only an option to them". Or something like that.
    Sometimes we get impatient waiting for the right one to come along. We are with the wrong one but too scared to
    be alone.
