I came across this great quote today ~ thought I'd share it with you!
I must learn to love the fool in me - the one who feels too much, talks too much, takes too many chances, wins sometimes and loses often, lacks self-control, loves and hates, hurts and gets hurt, promises and breaks promises, laughs and cries. It alone protects me against that utterly self-controlled, masterful tyrant whom I also harbor and who would rob me of my human aliveness, humility, and dignity but for my fool ~ Theodore I. Rubin
Embrace the true you! Love yourself fully & completely! ~there is no other you & that's what makes YOU so special!
Have a Beautiful Day!
Stay Strong & Journey On!
i love it when life is pushing you to your limits & you're asking "how much more do you think i can take ~ i know you think i'm strong ~ but really ~ this strong?!" & then just at the perfect time, your sent a message ~ via a song, a person or just that small voice within you, reminding you that Yes, You Are!...that was my week - just a total series of craziness- to the point where i'm asking,
"really, how much more?" & then, i was sent this ~
so, i smiled and said ok," i've got this" & was reminded that these are lessons that must be learned & growth that must happen before i'm ready for the next phase of my journey.
~ stay strong, much love & have a beautiful day!
Just Came Across This & Its Just So Perfect
Here’s to the girls with messy hair and thirsty hearts
We don’t feel apprehensive without makeup
We let our skin breathe
In fact, we would rather be naked
We know our scars and stretch marks define us
And if you throw us a cat call from your car window
Our first instinct is to give you the middle finger
We don’t bleach our hair
Or use machines to tan our skin
We rely on the sun to work its magic on our bodies
We have hobbies
We believe everything we do is an art form
We sing, paint, read and write
We let our fingers callus from our instruments, and then we admire the texture
We embrace our inner ruggedness, and make it appear feminine
We don’t hide indoors from the earthly elements
We embrace them
Letting fire warm our bodies down to our souls
We let the wind dry our hair after soaking in the rain
We jump in puddles
We sit by campfires until the smoke burns our eyes
And we enjoy the smell of our smoke stained clothes
We enjoy smoke. Some of us find it symbolic
We lay under the stars not just to admire the beauty of them
But also to recognize that we are made of them.
We drink whiskey from wine glasses and wine from the bottle
We tell dirty jokes
But we are not prejudiced
Our hearts are not made of gold
But of steel and soil because we are strong and grounded
We wear our hearts on our sleeves
We use metaphors to describe our feelings
And we are damn proud that we feel with such enthusiasm
We are intuitive, borderline psychics
Our libidos and emotions are connected
And when we fall in love, the earth shakes
We don’t allow others to protect us
But when we do, it’s an extraordinary bond
A union with its own definition
If we find one toxic, we cut them out without question
We are empowered by women alike. ~ Morgan Hunt
