Of the 12 or so words/phrases I know how to say in Thai, Mai Pen Rai is a great one. Loosely translated into colloquial US english I suppose it could be the equivalent of our “whatever”… the more proper translation I seem to here is “whatever will be, will be”… Pretty Buddhist, eh?
Here’s a cool site and description of some other Thai phrases and a bit more discussion on Mai Pen Rai
I went for a walk this morning at a beach south of where I live in San Diego: Imperial Beach and I started really appreciating the simple content that is available when I (maybe you too) are in acceptance of “whatever will be”. Its comforting. Powerful almost.
As with most posts, I try to share some of my experience, strength and hope so just wanted to do a quick check in after my walk. I’m posting and uploading from Katy’s Cafe in Imperial beach. I love this place. I *highly* recommend the Vietnamese Latte. When you come, tell Katy, Mickey says, “Aloha” 🙂
Welcome to Saturday morning. stay tuned…
Live the Dream! cuz if you’re not Living the Dream, you’re doing it wrong.
