We all have those mini crushes on certain people that will last basically forever.
It’s perfectly fine to make mistakes and fail terribly, they say. It’s perfectly alright, as long as you know how not to be affected by criticism.
Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
My family when someone wakes up before anyone else:
|Me:||Tips toes quietly through the house, trying not to make a sound.|
|Everyone else:||Let me just stomp throughout the house, slam a bunch of doors, and bang some pots together in the kitchen, I'm sure no one will mind.|
|EVERY FREAKING HOLIDAY/WEEKEND|
