You Are Always on My Mind

vallieofthelost:

Sometimes I think
Sometimes I drink
Sometimes I sleep
Sometimes I weep
Sometimes I scream
Sometimes I dream
Sometimes I sigh
Sometimes I lie
But always I find
You are on my mind

“When it comes to practicing tolerance, our enemies are our greatest teachers. Unlike friends, enemies will show us our weaknesses and faults. Friends tend to accept or overlook our weaknesses and faults, while enemies mirror back to us aspects of our personalities that we do not like. So let me say…anyone who cherishes compassion and love, the practice of tolerance is essential, and for that, an enemy is indispensable.”
