I believe in simplicity. I believe in feelings and family, friendship and fidelity, forgiveness and fortitude. I believe in motherhood and make believe and that music is the only real magic this world has ever seen. I believe in concocting and consuming colorful cocktails and fussing over and feasting on fabulous food. I believe in living out loud. I believe in laughing until your face hurts and loving until your heart breaks. I believe in behaving boldly and when warranted, badly, taking bubble baths and being barefoot. I believe in poetry, puppies and playing in the park. I believe in scheduled working on weekdays and sleeping in on Sundays. I believe in seeking without ceasing that which sings to my soul and strengthens my spirit. I believe in dancing in the rain and digging in the dirt. I believe in honest expression and the golden rule. I believe in nature and naps and that naïveté is sometimes necessary. I believe in goodness and gratitude and grace. I believe in unity and the power of the universe. I believe in being authentically awesome. I believe in being better today than yesterday but not as good as tomorrow. I believe in challenges and change and growing pains. I believe in the inherent worth of every creature on this planet. I believe in honoring the individual journeys and paths of people whether I understand them or not. I believe in letting people live their truth and trusting that it’s right for them. I believe in lifting up and letting go. I believe that death is just as sacred an experience as birth and that it is never, ever an end.

Mostly, I just believe that I’m never going to stop learning what it is I believe.

“We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men; and among those fibers, as sympathetic threads, our actions run as causes, and they come back to us as effects.”

— Herman Melville

“The most fundamental aggression to ourselves, the most fundamental harm we can do to ourselves, is to remain ignorant by not having the courage and the respect to look at ourselves honestly and gently.”

Pema Chödrön

Always look at yourself honestly and gently.

Hurts Like Heaven

Coldplay - “Hurts Like Heaven”

Written in graffiti on a bridge in a park
‘Do you ever get the feeling that you’re missing the mark?’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold

Written up in marker on a factory sign
‘I struggle with the feeling that my life isn’t mine’
It’s so cold, it’s so cold
It’s so cold, it’s so cold

See the arrow they shot, tryin’ to tear us apart
Fire from my belly and the beat from my heart
Still I won’t let go
Still I won’t let go

You, Ooohooh

Yes you do

Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

On every street and every car and every surface are names,
And now the streets arise, and we’re writin’ the same,
Don’t let them take control
No we won’t let ‘em take control

Yes I feel a little bit nervous
Yes I feel nervous and I cannot relax
How come they’re out to get us?
How come they’re out when they don’t know the facts

So on a concrete canvas under cover of dark
Concrete canvas I go making my mark
Armed with the spray can soul
I’ll be armed with the spray can soul

You
Ooohooh

Oh, you
Ooohooh

Yes, you use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven

Woohaoh
Woohoaho

It’s true

When you
Use your heart as a weapon
It hurts like heaven
