“The most terrible and beautiful and interesting things happen in life. For some of you, those things have already happened. Whatever happens to you belongs to you. Make it yours. Feed it to yourself even if it feels impossible to swallow. Let it nurture you, because it will.”

To love someone fiercely, to believe in something with your whole heart, to celebrate a fleeting moment in time, to fully engage in a life that doesn’t come with guarantees – these are risks that involve vulnerability and often pain. But, I’m learning that recognizing and leaning into the discomfort of vulnerability teaches us how to live with joy, gratitude and grace.

You will learn a lot about yourself if you stretch in the direction of goodness, of bigness, of kindness, of forgiveness, of emotional bravery.


It’s about living in the moment and appreciating the smallest things

Hearts are such fragile things,

really very silly things.

One minute they are broken,

the next soaring and searching for love,

playing a silly tune the whole while.

Hearts are such strange things,

really very odd things.

No explanations needed for my love,

no guarantees required for yours,

unconditional all the same.

Hearts are such beautiful things,

really very lovely things.

I can see yours without an autopsy,

I can feel yours behind your skin,

and you hold mine forevermore.

Life goes on

“In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on.”Robert Frost

In those moments of true despair, when it feels that we have lost hope for the better, when we have forsaken our passion for life, it’s a bit tricky to look around and see what’s happening to all the others who inhabit your own little story: life does not stop. It goes on. It carries on, no matter what.

And, whether you’re willing to see it and accept it or not, life goes on for you too.

Whether you want it to or not, life goes on. And, slowly, it takes everything away.
