“Overall, we don’t want a life half-lived, half-assed, or half-hearted. We don’t want to go through the motions just to fulfil some outdated notion of what this ‘us’ is supposed to be. We don’t want superficial, surface-level, unemotional, uninteresting, unexceptional, average, ordinary connection.”
Seriously, what the fuck is going on in America right now?
The problem is this: Nothing inside us stays lost. We don’t lose our emotions in our bodies. We lose ourselves and who we are. We lose our way, we lose our strength, and then we lose hope.
I hold this world in the palm of my hand and it’s on me to decide where I leave my fingerprints.
Today was an avoidable, unnecessary, incomplete and internal battle that ended in defeat for a part of me I had to release, but I’m not quite sure that I feel free. And that’s okay.
Your love is a lottery and I might forget the numbers I bet, but I won’t forget we won. I know the victory of us.
You are living, breathing happiness.
Starting today, I take my power back. Starting today, I am enough.
I wonder where your thoughts go when you close your eyes.
Life will happen in such random, fantastic, and fabulous ways that you’ll look back and laugh at the dots you connect and you’ll learn your missteps are still an important part of the dance.
