Now Playing Tracks

Great people do things before they’re ready. They do things before they know they can do it. And by doing it, they’re proven right. Because, I think there’s something inside of you—and inside of all of us—when we see something and we think, “I think I can do it, I think I can do it. But I’m afraid to.” Bridging that gap, doing what you’re afraid of, getting out of your comfort zone, taking risks like that—THAT is what life is. And I think you might be really good. You might find out something about yourself that’s special. And if you’re not good, who cares? You tried something. Now you know something about yourself. Now you know. A mystery is solved. So, I think you should just give it a try. Just inch yourself out of that back line. Step into life. Courage. Risks. Yes. Go. Now.

You’re beautiful the way you are! Thanks, Air, for the new song!

I went out dancing last night without doing my hair, putting in contacts, or applying a stitch of makeup…and it was awesome! I felt comfortable in my skin (and new fav pair of heels) and more than that, so ALIVE! Claire and I stayed on the floor until the lights came on, smiles on our faces the entire time. In short, we shut the place down, and it didn’t matter what we were wearing on our faces. So, note to self, and to all my lovely ladies: you don’t have to try. :)

(There is no try, only do.)

It’s like…it’s like there’s only ever been Peter. Like everyone else that came before him, they were all to prepare me for this. I think I see the difference now, between loving someone from afar and loving someone up close. When you see them up close, you see the real them, but they also get to see the real you. And Peter does. He sees me, and I see him.
Love is scary: it changes, it can go away. That’s part of the risk. I don’t want to be scared anymore. I want to be brave.

Many of My children drive themselves like racehorses. They whip themselves into action, ignoring how exhausted they are. They forget that I am sovereign and that My ways are higher than theirs. Underneath their driven service, they may secretly resent Me as a harsh taskmaster. Their worship of me is lukewarm because I am no longer their first love. My invitation never changes: Come to Me, all you who are weary, and I will give you rest. Worship Me by resting peacefully in My presence.

I just think the idea of like, this one person for everyone is actually quite unromantic…um, cuz when you think about it, it’s just like, well, we’re together why? Because we’re supposed to be together, it’s like, what is that? On the flip side, like, it almost sounds unromantic at first, but I’d like to think that, you know, I’m gonna meet someone, and we both say, like, we don’t wanna find anyone else. We know we could, and we don’t want to. We wanna make it work, and cherish that, and have, you know…it’s like we know this is precious and we’re going to put in the work and when it’s really hard we’ll be like, you know, I could find someone else, but I don’t want to. To me, that’s romantic.
Nick V, The Bachelorette. Not too eloquent (overuse of “like” - there are even a few I edited out!) but what a beautiful sentiment. Reminds me of another poet - “how many girls in the world could make me feel like this? Baby I don’t ever plan to find out.” :)
