Grace is knowing that all is well, even when things seem messed up on the surface.

i love this, so simply true. i like to phrase this concept as such to my friends: all of life’s concepts are perfectly round. they’re like spheres, and we as individuals have a tendency to view only one hemisphere. if we see something as cold, no doubt there’s a side of it that’s hot. and so on. i go on to say that if we place ourselves in the exact middle of these concepts (usually this takes time and understanding of the concept in conflicting ways- if you’ve reached a stalemate-contradiction you know you’re getting close) we have balance. and that’s what grace is, gracefully walking is walking balanced on any scale. a graceful attitude isn’t knowing everything’s well though, at least in my opinion, all will never be well. the ‘well’ is useless without an ‘unwell’ to compare it to. knowing this and accepting it is what i think you’re talking about, but, maybe not?

Exactly.

People need to take a step back, breathe, chill and realize that they’re getting worked up about a bunch of non-issues.

Being serious is a calamity, especially when it comes to absolutely trivial matters, which is most of what goes through a person’s head it seems.

It’s all good. There is no problem here, really, it’s a wonderful world. Just enjoy.

So that’s either an optimistic insane idea that unwell is also well, or just an idea that all is well without any logical reason. Nice knowing. Since I’m thinking in opposites, I have a question.

When?

Yeah I quit bothering when I realised that life, with it’s attendant joys and sorrows will come to a halt someday.
