Holding on for too long
You’ve never been the one to let go first. You blame this on the game “Red Rover”, the game that capitalized your free time during recess in the third game. Everyone would get in two lines, on opposite ends of the mossy green field, and stare at each other as if they were 300 pound linebackers getting ready to crush their opponents. Side by side you locked your fingers tight and pressed your...

What it really means to "go with the flow"
Going with the flow isn’t about being passive or lazy. It’s not about just letting things happen “to you”. It’s not aimless wandering. It’s a co-creative act. “The flow” is the ocean of cosmic intelligence. It’s the substance that carries the whole shebang. The flow is life energy itself. Going with the flow is responding to cues...

Why you should travel young
Why you should travel young Posted by Jeff Goins As I write this, I’m flying. It’s an incredible concept: to be suspended in the air, moving at two hundred miles an hour — while I read a magazine. Amazing, isn’t it? I woke up at three a.m. this morning. Long before the sun rose, thirty people loaded up three conversion vans and drove two hours to the San Juan airport. Our trip was finished. It...

Things I will miss about Australia (or Melbourne)
While my original plan to stay for a year and a half to two and a half years (pending 3 months of rural work.. which many people forget to mention.) has been cut short; I consider the next six months in Vancouver as time to regroup financially and emotionally, be a good sister and maid of honour, and figure things out before hitting Australia (and Melbourne) back with full force and gusto.

Oh what are we doing, we are turning into dust. Playing house in the ruins of us.

Me: You know how everyone talks about how they want to be successful?

Mike: What makes you think you're not?
Me: No, I just think it's something to continually strive for. But I feel like if I told anyone else that. They'd laugh and say that's not a goal.

Ten Relationship Words That Aren't Translatable...
Mamihlapinatapei (Yagan, an indigenous language of Tierra del Fuego): The wordless yet meaningful look shared by two people who desire to initiate something, but are both reluctant to start.
Yuanfen (Chinese): A relationship by fate or destiny. This is a complex concept. It draws on principles of predetermination in Chinese culture, which dictate relationships, encounters and affinities, mostly among lovers and friends.
Cafuné (Brazilian Portuguese): The act of tenderly running your fingers through someone's hair.
Retrouvailles (French): The happiness of meeting again after a long time.
Ilunga (Bantu): A person who is willing to forgive abuse the first time; tolerate it the second time, but never a third time.
La Douleur Exquise (French): The heart-wrenching pain of wanting someone you can’t have.
Koi No Yokan (Japanese): The sense upon first meeting a person that the two of you are going to fall into love.
Ya’aburnee (Arabic): “You bury me.” It’s a declaration of one’s hope that they’ll die before another person, because of how difficult it would be to live without them.
Forelsket (Norwegian): The euphoria you experience when you’re first falling in love.
Saudade (Portuguese): The feeling of longing for someone that you love and is lost. Another linguist describes it as a "vague and constant desire for something that does not and probably cannot exist."
