"You don’t need another human being to make your life complete, but let’s be honest. Having your wounds kissed by someone who doesn’t see them as disasters in your soul but cracks to put their love into is the most calming thing in this world."
— Emery Allen

"One day I decided that I was beautiful, and so I carried out my life as if I was a beautiful girl. I wear colors that I really like, I wear makeup that makes me feel pretty, and it really helps. It doesn’t have anything to do with how the world perceives you. What matters is what you see. Your body is your temple, it’s your home, and you must decorate it."
— Gabourey Sidibe

Perfect Sunday.

  Listening to live jazz at lunch, dog park puppy playtime,  cozy nap and now a glass of vino.

I say this with the best intention, with my whole heart hanging off my sleeve.  I say this as I would hope to do with absolute integrity, will and freedom.

I am happy.

In this journey I have contemplated what I have loved and lost, what I have missed out on, what I refused to let move me.  Today I found that every single moment, every single action, every second of my life leading to this point has made me who I am.

I lay here in complete gratitude.  For every lesson I didn't like, for every lesson that will be in my future, I completely embrace it...or try to (really hard), wholeheartedly.

As of NOW, I am realizing that its a constant change, cycle, learning experience, etc.  Whatever you want to call it.  For me, I need to relish in the past, present and future and see what I get.

The best present is Life.

To sweat is to pray, to make an offering of your innermost self. Sweat is holy water, prayer beads, pearls of liquid that release your past. Sweat is an ancient and universal form of self healing, whether done in the gym, the sauna, or the sweat lodge. I do it on the dance floor. The more you dance, the more you sweat. The more you sweat, the more you pray. The more you pray, the closer you come to ecstasy.
