"No matter where life takes me, find me with a smile"

Ralph Waldo Emerson (via quotes-shape-us)

The glory of friendship is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, nor the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when you discover that someone else believes in you and is willing to trust you with a friendship.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie (NPR)

The idea that sex is something a woman gives a man, and she loses something when she does that, which again for me is nonsense. I want us to raise girls differently where boys and girls start to see sexuality as something that they own, rather than something that a boy takes from a girl.

My devine curiousity has set off a spark in my head, I think ill just take the time to unwind the logic from my head because god knows  It’s just the seperation that I dread.

Keep going, no matter what you do, no matter how many times you screw up and think to yourself, “there’s no point to carry on,” no matter how many people tell you that you can’t do it – keep going. Don’t quit. Don’t quit, because a month from now you will be that much closer to your goal than you are now. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Make today count.

“Girls like her, my grandfather once warned me, girls like her turn into women with eyes like bullet holes and mouths made of knives. They are always restless. They are always hungry. They are bad news. They will drink you down like a shot of whisky. Falling in love with them is like falling down a flight of stairs.”

“I’m your dream, make you real
  I’m your eyes when you must steal
  I’m your pain when you can’t feel, sad but true
  I’m your truth, telling lies
  I’m your reasoned alibis
  I’m inside, open your eyes
  I’m you, sad but true”

the truth
is you could slit my throat
And with my one last gasping breath
I’d apologize for bleeding on your shirt

Daily Reflections- Getting well

Very deep, sometimes quite forgotten, damaging emotional conflicts persist below the level of consciousness.
Twelve steps and twelve traditions pp. 79-80 

Only through positive action can I remove the remains of guilt and shame brought on by alcohol. Throughout my misadventures when I drank my friends would say “Why are you doing this? you’re only hurting yourself" Little did I know how true were those words. Although I harmed others, some of my behavior caused grave wounds to my soul. Step eight provides me with a way or forgiving myself. I alleviate much of the hidden damage when I make my list of those I have hurt. In making amends, I free myself of burdens, thus contributing to my healing.

and then there are some who
believe that old
relationships can be
revived and made new

but please
if you feel that way

don’t phone
don’t write
don’t arrive.


Throwback Thursday: Punk Rock Princess - Something Corporate

You could be my punk rock princess, I would be your garage band king.
You could tell me why you just don’t fit in, and how you’re gonna be something. 
If I could be your first real heartache, I would do it over again.
If you would be my punk rock princess, I would be your heroine.

along the way
I broke my own heart.
