bring the distorted sense of certainty
to this twisted entirety
bring the messiness
the confusing chaos
the emotional wretchedness
bring the blinding clarity
catalyzed by pain too great to contain
too inconvenient to sustain
too loud to ignore
bring it all
with gratitude greater than ever before
I love it all
I didn’t take this picture, nor did I write the words, but looking at it simply makes me smile
– and it’s not the worst philosophy to live by.
Don’t hold back.
– I took the picture earlier today, it’s from Opal Beach on Santa Rosa Island, Florida, where I’m currently loving life. Tomorrow it’s back to the wonderful city, New Orleans :)
it’s almost time to say goodbye and let go, in gratitude, of yet another year..
it’s been a rough year, so intense and full of challenges forcing me to mobilize all my strengths more times than I can count. and it’s been a year so full of purpose and insight that I can only bow my head in gratitude and feel blessed. no matter what next year will bring, I know it will be magical. probably not easy, but definitely magical.
this year more than ever, I hope we only carry with us the things, and people, that brings us joy and inspiration and love – that serves our progress. so with only one day left of 2013, it’s the last chance to find peace with any conflicts in our lives. don’t carry it into the new year. it’s time to let go and leave behind everything that is no longer serving us. let go of anger and hurt, let go of regrets and doubts. only bring with us the thoughts and feelings that makes us smile, that warms our hearts and gives us hope. I’m sure we all know exactly what to let go of and what to bring with us forward in life.
however you’re wrapping up the year, I hope you will be happy and feel loved and that you will shine like the beautiful person you are.
Happy New Year ♥
.. and never too old, either.
So whatever your dream is, go for it!
– and never ever give up ♥
let’s keep it light
loving yet detached
let’s laugh and explore
and always be honest
let’s be uncompromisingly playful
even when serious
especially when scared
let’s be love
let’s keep it moving
