Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.”
— Viktor E Frankl, Man’s Search For Meaning

….but I heard both in one night. Damn, I love my peoples.
“Sorry guys, this sounds like 80’s porn music….but I kinda like it.” - Josie
“Now slide your hands down to nipple level, and push up into cobra.” - Babajide
“The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, worry about the future, or anticipate troubles, but to live in the present moment wisely and earnestly.”
Fade your fears. Redefine gravity.
SILENCE the MIND. AMPLIFY the HEART.
You were born with goodness and trust.
You were born with ideals and dreams.
You were born with greatness.
You were born with wings.
You are not meant for crawling, so don’t.
You have wings.
Learn to use them and fly. ”
My favorite poem by Rumi
love, love and love. Never forget that
“The only real failure in life is not to be true to the best one knows.”

“Everything you do right now ripples outward and affects everyone. Your posture can shine your heart or transmit anxiety. Your breath can radiate love or muddy the room in depression. Your glance can awaken joy. Your words can inspire freedom. Your every act can open hearts and minds.”
