Part of the process of becoming Odara includes having very cold-dark-scary days. The last week was tough and I hope to be ready to share it one day. I’m not ready yet. For now, I’ll just drop the knowledge of some my favorite authors and books.
#1 By Dossie Easton and Janet W.Hardy in the book “The Ethical Slut”:
“We have never met anyone who had low self-esteem at the moment of orgasm”. #TheEthicalSlut
#2 Also by Dossie Easton and Janet W. Hardy:
“Jealousy is an emotion that arises inside you, no person and no behavior can make you jealous”. #TheEthicalSlut
“Love doesn’t erase the past, but it makes the future different”. #MatingInCaptivity by Esther Perel
“It’s hard to feel attracted to someone who has abandoned her/his sense of autonomy”. #MatingInCaptivity
#5 By Scott Adams in the book “How To Fail at Almost Everything an Still Wing Big”:
Happiness is health plus freedom. #ScottAdams
#6 Another pearl of wisdom from Scott Adams:
“Adults are starved for a kind word”.
“Your smile is a message of your good will. Your smile brightens the lives of all who see it”.
#8 And the Nonviolent Communication master speaks again:
“We accept full responsibility for our own intentions and actions, but not for the feelings of others”.
“No matter where you go, there you are”. #Thrive
#10 I’ll finish it up with the brilliant Neil Strauss, author of “The Truth — An Uncomfortable Book About Relationships”:
“A life is just one letter apart from a lie”.
Wishing you a Happy Tuesday from the bottom of my heart!
Peace & ❤ — always.
How about you? What are the books and authors who have inspired you the most? Do you struggle to become Odara as well?
Thanks for reading and See You Next Tuesday! ;-)
