I’ll never go for that guy. Because he’s the type of guy that has a linen closet and a towel warmer. You know me, I’m only attracted to guys who are afraid of success and think someone famous stole their idea. I like an underdog.
—Zooey Deschanel (as Jess in “The New Girl”)
Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love.
