I was browsing the interwebs the other day and found this piece of gem. It’s a passage that resonates with what I go through in life every day. As a matter of fact, it applies to each and every one of us because we are “not everyone’s cup of tea“. I love it and I’m sure, you will too.
The world is filled with people who, no matter what you do, no matter what you try, will simply not like you. But the world is also filled with those who will love you fiercely. The ones who love you: they are your people.
Don’t waste your finite time and heart trying to convince people who aren’t your people that you have value. They will miss it completely. They won’t buy what you are selling. Don’t try to convince them to walk your path with you because you will only waste your time and your emotional good health. You are not for them and they are not for you. You are not their cup of tea and they are not yours.
Politely wave them along and you move away as well. Seek to share your path with those who recognize and appreciate your gifts, who you are.
Be who you are.
You are not everyone’s cup of tea and that is OK.
Isn’t it great? I’ve seen this on many sites but there seems to be no idea who the author is.
Whoever the author, I’d like to thank them for such an awesome thought.
Are there any passages or quotes that resonate with you?

Hey, all! Happy New Year (19 days later). I started 2016 just like last year. Woke up, looked in the mirror, and deftly went back to sleep. For me, January 1 is a day like any other. Nothing new. It took 365 days for the New Year to reach and rid us of the crap fest that was 2015. Most of you will agree that the last year was not a very pleasant one. Controversies, hate, ignorance, intolerance, sadness, and a great deal of irritability ruled our lives every day. Everybody rang in the New Year with a new hope, I’m sure. We’ve all made resolutions and since it’s day 19 already, we’ve already broken about 22 of them.
Are resolutions so hard to keep? Maybe it’s the irrational ones that are easy to break. Looking at so many lists, I felt even I had to share a list of things to do in 2016. Time for fresh starts. Here are a few resolutions that we should strive to keep.
First of all, I would like to wish everyone a happy new year. I hope this year we live with tolerance, happiness, peace, and satisfaction. My year has started off on a slow note, nothing great, nothing not-great; just slow. But like everyone I too have made resolutions (or rather, a resolution); and that is – to read more.
When I am daydreaming or hanging around idly, these are a few thoughts that pop into my head.
This is true of every traveller.
When we pursue something just to make money, there’s only misery attached to it. But when we pursue something to make ourselves happy, there’s no feeling that can match it. The pursuit of happiness lies in satisfaction, not in profit.
