do something for one
and gain a task
do it again
if they should ask
but do a something
for yourself
if you want the joy to last

We all know that. But how often do we do it?

How true!

Love the picture. Its like tree on fire!

Atrisa said...

We can take care of others only when we're happy with ourselves, right?

I have pondered about what you wrote like thousand times, thanks for putting it in words :)

Karen said...

Isn't it interesting that a different points in our lives we do more of one than the other. I agree with Cloudia. Do both.

Yamini, its very hard indeed if we tend to rely on others for our happiness, or have a hard time maintaining our emotional boundaries.

Cloudia, both is ideal.

Mona, yeah, I thought the picture was cool.

Atrisa, I would think that you understand this one well. I get the sense that your emotional boundaries were violated when you were young, and now they sit back, uncertain, waiting to see what the emotions are around you first.

Karen, very true. That evolution gives me hope.

KGT, thanks!

Oddyoddo13, things that I wished I knew when I was young.

Harish, very true.
