You cannot use someone else’s fire; you can only use your own. And in order to do that, you must first be willing to believe you have it.
Audre Lorde (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
Make the decision that you’ll no longer use excuses to keep you from what you know is in your best interest. Today, act on something you’ve always avoided and explained away with a convenient excuse. Make a phone call you’ve been putting off, write a letter to a friend, put on a pair of walking shoes and go for a stroll, clean out your closet—do something you’ve been justifying not doing with excuses.
Dr. Wayne W. Dyer (via thelittleyellowdiary)

30 is not the new 20

this is it. well, lets be honest. this isn’t “it”. but it is the proverbial slap-in-the-mouth-look-at-your-life-look-at-your-choices birthday. its when you look back, not on the past 30 years, no. that is too much. but mostly on the last 5. when you kept telling yourself it was so far away, until you wake up and realize… holy fuck, i’m 30 years old.

who knows really. who knows how this whole charade of growing up is supposed to go, what was the right thing to do, was everything you did supposed to “lead” you to where you are now (sad, angry, disappointed) or is it supposed to motivate you. motivate you because now it is here. now it is time to leave your 20s behind and embark on a new part of yourself. is 30 the the new 20? no. it isn’t. don’t listen to anyone who says that. they are lying. bold faced lying. 30 is the swift kick in the ass that most of us need, that we’ve been dreading, that is here. so i guess instead of drowning yourself in cheap beer and the real housewives, get up and do something. because before you know it, you’ll be 40.

With regard to abortion. I accept my church’s opinion - position - on abortion. Life begins at conception, that is the church’s decision. I accept it in my personal life. But I refuse to impose it on equally devout Christians and Muslims and Jews. I just refuse to impose that on others, unlike my friend here, the congressman. I do not believe that we have a right to tell other people, women, that they can’t control their body.

Little Women was published in installments, and apparently the young ladies swooned over Laurie. (One reviewer said that he knew a reader that demanded to know where she could find a boy like Laurie, because he “just suited her.”) Anyway, seems Louisa May Alcott got irritated by it and grumbled in her journal that she “wouldn’t marry Jo to Laurie to please anyone!”

It’s really hard to meet new people who share my interest in not meeting people.

Its really quite interesting how one person, or one week, or one moment can remind you of a life full of promises, of expectations, of contentment.  and in the same way, how easily you can forget who you were. or rather, who you are.  everyone loses track.  everyone bends and molds themselves into something else in order to appease the situation you’re faced with.  but why do those bends begin to stick? why don’t you snap back into your core self? how can one compromise change the course of who you are as a person?  sacrifices are meant to make you better, or make the situation better.  they aren’t meant to change you completely. like that moment, when you’re sitting there and all of the sudden it hits you like a ton of bricks : this is who i am. and the the subsequent ton of bricks : don’t let it go away, again.  don’t fade.

i hope i don’t fade. i hope i don’t mess it up. because this feels pretty damn good.
