so why don't we sleep all, sleep all day

confession: i accidentally slept until 10:45 this morning. i set my alarm for 9:30, and when i accidentally hit "disable" instead of "snooze," i decided i really didn't care.

i haven't done that in a while. let me be real honest with felt great.

"There were always, in me, two women at least, one woman desperate and bewildered, who felt she was drowning, and another who would leap into a scene, as upon a stage, conceal her true emotions because they were weaknesses, helplessness, despair, and present to the world only a smile, an eagerness, curiosity, enthusiasm, interest."

let your light shine

"so much of what i see reminds me of something i read in a book, when shouldn't it be the other way around?"
{kathleen kelly, you've got mail}

i'm afraid of out-growing my passion.

i'm young. i'm a dreamer. i'm in love with adventure. i'm slightly naive and idealistic. i'm hopeful.

i firmly believe that passion and hope are intimately connected. without hope, there can be no passion.

tonight, i am working to figure out how to live life, maintain hope, and passionately pour my heart into each moment.

you can't cage a bird when they're made to be free

i'm sitting at la boulange this morning.
enjoying a large cappuccino
and a lovely bowl of oats
i love oatmeal.

this kind of stuff makes me feel really good.
and it's the kind of stuff i feel guilty for doing, august through may.
i do it anyway, but deep down in the pit of my stomach i always feel a little anxiety about it.
but not today.

i am  neglecting nothing.
i'm free.
free to let my mind wander.
free to relax.
free to enjoy.
