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.)

About Kate Bartolotta

Kate Bartolotta is the strongest girl in the world. She is the love child of a pirate and a roller derby queen. She hails from the second star to the right. She doesn't know how to behave with all the apples and ibexes. She doesn't suffer from her eight million freckles, she loves them! Like a rolling stone, Kate gathers no moss. Kate loves kale, being barefoot, Dr. Seuss, singing too loudly, gallivanting, palindromes, blackberries and has far too many books for her own good. When she's not writing, you can find her practicing yoga, running in the woods, playing with her kids, devouring a book, planting dandelions, changing the world and doing her dishes. Kate does not play the accordion. She is a massage therapist, writer and a compassionate friend to all. This year Kate aspires to finally give up on learning to knit and will instead spend that time putting a little bit more of her heart on the page. Connect with Kate on Facebook and Twitter

    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.
