Life will give you hard questions that demand answers. If left unanswered, the questions only become harder. So, better to answer them with whatever you’ve got and hope for the best than to leave them be and continually build up the fear of answering. Answer the questions. Be bold. Turn fear into freedom.
Sometimes we are afraid to be with certain people because we are afraid they’ll challenge us to become more than we are.
Only love will make you understand.
Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path.
And that is how change happens. One gesture. One person. One moment at a time.
—Libba Bray (The Sweet Far Thing)
So ready for this.
Love is and always was the longing deep inside my heart to know you and be known by you.
