The word is derived from the Japanese word mono (物?), which means "thing", and aware (哀れ?), which was a Heian period expression of measured surprise (similar to "ah" or "oh"), translating roughly as "pathos", "poignancy", "deep feeling", or "sensitivity", or "aware". Thus, mono no aware has frequently been translated as "the 'ahh-ness' of things", life, and love. Awareness of the transience of all things heightens appreciation of their beauty, and evokes a gentle sadness at their passing. "A sensitivity to ephemera"

 

If you find a woman
with a wild heart
do not try to tame her.
You must adore her
recklessly, the way
she is meant to be loved.

Do not try to quiet her,
for her roars will reach
far and wide.
She has something
important to say.
Help her say it.

Do not get in her way.
She stops for no one.
Do not try to change
the path she has chosen.
Learn also to love the wind
and let it change you.

We must learn to bear pain
the way the earth bears its seeds.
We must learn to blossom from it.

my celebrity crushes always start with “who the hell is this” and always turn into “that’s his right nostril I can tell”

Lmao me and my DJ crushes right now, so embarrassing.

My sim got out of the shower right before going to work, and didn’t put clothes on. He went to work as a professional athlete, came back from work, and then took care of his baby all with no clothes on. He spent 3 days like this before he finally put something on

I had such a hard time typing at school today because someone rearranged the keyboard just to spell ‘bruh’

True happiness is when the love that is within us finds expression in external activities.
