"Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive, too mushy, too wishy washy. Blah Blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a foot step. Feel it all. Look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love."
"As we grow up, we learn that the one person, who isn’t supposed to let you down, will, and the one person you never thought would be there for you, is. You’re going to have fights with your friends, you are going to lose some of your friends, and you will eventually lose someone you love and love someone you never thought you’d find. People are going to hate you, love you, love to hate you, but the ones that mean the most to you will always be there. Life is too short, so have way too much fun, take way too many pictures, have way too many friends and enemies, laugh way too much for way too long, but most importantly, love with all you have."
