Here I am BACK AGAIN for my 2nd weekly Wednesday post! Man, it feels really good to show up for myself and shove all that pesky and unnecessary fear-paralysis to the side.
I opened my email this morning to the treat of a quote that pretty much sums up the biggest life lesson I’ve learned over the past 3 months. Bear with me as we may all breathe a sigh of exasperation at how seemingly obvious it is.
Character — the willingness to accept responsibility for one’s own life — is the source from which self-respect springs.”
― Joan Didion, On Self-Respect
I turn 25 tomorrow.
25 on the 17th of 2017. That’s golden right?
This boggles my mind so so so much. There aren’t enough so’s that I’m willing to type to accurately express how much.
In a way, I’m in shock. A lot of my life is in blanketed in a fog of surreal-ness at the moment.
If you believe yourself unfortunate
because you have loved and lost,
perish the thought.
One who has truly loved can never lose entirely.
Love is whimsical & temperamental.
Its nature is ephemeral & transitory
It comes when it pleases and goes away
Accept and enjoy it while it remains,
but spend no time worrying about its
Worry will never bring it back.
– Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich
“If I’m not the one for you, you gotta stop holding me the way you do.”
– Adele, Water under the bridge
Love is an amazing thing. It’s said to have the ability to change our brain chemistry. We get hooked on love like a drug addict and latch on to our lover for dear life. Like we need them more than food, water, and air. They become our source of happiness and meaning.
