Simple, Starving to be Safe

25. ABC. Political junkie. Retired science nerd. Traveler. I live for good food, my friends, and boba milk tea. Figuring out myself and what I really want from life, while at the same time trying to find that someone with "a smile that could light up this whole town"

I always put on the PBS Newshour when I come home from work. While I was watching a segment on synthetic biology, this beauty from Stanford walked across the screen. Just thought I’d share. ;D

If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another.

The universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is no right or wrong, only a series of possibilities that shift with each thought, feeling, and action that you experience.

If this sounds too mystical, refer again to the body. Every significant vital sign- body temperature, heart rate, oxygen consumption, hormone level, brain activity, and so on- alters the moment you decide to do anything… decisions are signals telling your body, mind, and environment to move in a certain direction.

cogitoreklo: Have you ever missed home?

Yes. Every single day. 

I have an amazing group of friends back home. But I understand this where I need to be right now. As much as I want to be home, my greatest potential for growth is here.

"Sometimes you meet someone, and it’s so clear that the two of you, on some level belong together. As lovers, or as friends, or as family, or as something entirely different. You just work, whether you understand one another or you’re in love or you’re partners in crime. You meet these people throughout your life, out of nowhere, under the strangest circumstances, and they help you feel alive. I don’t know if that makes me believe in coincidence, or fate, or sheer blind luck, but it definitely makes me believe in something."
