Every now and then, Kris & I would have semi-serious conversations where he’ll hold teasing and being sarcarstic with me for a moment and share with me life’s theories. Most of the time, it makes incredibly much sense, and I feel extremely better after. His sentiments usually echo that of Luke’s. Except I do feel more comfy annoying Kris with my constantly repeated questions on the same topic (instead of bugging the husband) only because I know Kris can withstand my nonsense.
So today, he served me a line which I thought was very apt for my current situation and anxiety.
“Why soooo serious ?????”
It also brought back fond memories when I recalled how BFF was just mimicking that scene from The Dark Knight over dinner last Fri. I think they were right. I should really learn to slow down and relax instead of trying to pre-empt everything possible. Urgh.
Just minutes ago, he threw me another quote from another great person:
“Be like water making its way through cracks. Do not be assertive, but adjust to the object, and you shall find a way round or through it. If nothing within you stays rigid, outward things will disclose themselves.
Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water my friend.” – Bruce Lee
Kris’s point: Be flexible.
Kris does wonders to me soul. :>
