Figuring it all out

Figuring it all out

You don’t have to have it all figured out. Honestly. It’s not a thing. Even the people who seem like they have it all figured out, don’t. They can’t predict or control the future anymore than you or I can, they just try to. You don’t have...
Falling apart gracefully

Falling apart gracefully

I have pages and pages of poems, pieces of writing…my heart and soul poured onto paper. Sitting gathering digital dust. Most of it will never see the light of day. The feelings captured on those virtual pages being already obsolete, but at the time feeling so...
Showing up, or not

Showing up, or not

There are days when even the thought of showing up, of making progress, of doing the work….it just feels too much. When the mountains you have to climb, and the lessons you’re supposed to learn: you would rather pack them away for another day. On those...

I am not here to be right

I am not here to be right

You’re not forever

You’re not forever

You’re not forever. You’re a piece of forever. You’re the one. Who pierces my heart and breaks it free. You’re not the only one. And the preciousness we share will be none the less precious for it. I know you. You know me. Don’t think for...
Everyone is dirty

Everyone is dirty

Everyone is dirty. Everyone is sweaty. No one brushes their hair. Ever. It’s so refreshing to be around dirty people. To be around sweaty people. To have everyone just love each other and not give a shit. Really see each other for who they are, not what they...
