Reckless Poem

Listen with your soul.
Leave space to wonder.
Do your own thing.

- Danielle LaPorte

Promise me
you will not spend
so much time
treading water
and trying to keep your
head above the waves
that you forget,
truly forget,
how much you have always loved
to swim.

- Tyler Knott Gregson

Tears were warm, and girls were beautiful, like dreams. I liked movie theaters, the darkness and intimacy, and I liked the deep, sad summer nights.

Perfectionism & Procrastination

shortandsweet:

Surprisingly, perfectionists are often procrastinators, as they can tend to think “I don’t have the right skills or resources to do this perfectly now, so I won’t do it at all.”

this is an important thing to remember.

The Guest House

This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.

A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.

Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture, still,
treat each guest honourably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.

The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing
and invite them in.

Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.


Rumi, translated by Coleman Barks

All, everything that I understand, I understand only because I love.

Leo Tolstoy

If we want to experience love and belonging, we must believe we are worthy of love and belonging.

"… When we can let go of what other people think and our own story, we gain access to our worthiness - the feeling that we are enough just as we are and are worthy of love and belonging. When we spend a lifetime trying to distance ourselves from the parts of our lives that don’t fit who we think we’re supposed to be, we stand outside of our story and hustle for our worthiness by constantly performing, perfecting, pleasing and proving. Our sense of worthiness - that critically important piece that gives us access to love and belonging - lives inside of our story.”


— Brene Brown  [emphasis mine]

"The crucial point is that we can relate with our life just as it is right now, not later when things improve. We can always connect with the openness of our minds. We can use our days to wake up rather than go back to sleep."

Pema Chodron

Being kind isn’t always easy. Or convenient. But it has the potential to change everything.

Jack Johnson “What You Thought You Need

We could make this into anything
We could make this into more than words we speak.
This could make us into anything
It could make us grow and become what we’ll be.
