beauty for ashes

this morning, my inspiration comes from two really great blogs:


"After a while, you learn the subtle difference between holding a hand and changing a soul. You begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts and presents aren’t promises. And you start to accept your defeats with your head up and your eyes open. You learn to build all your roads on today because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain. After a while, you learn that even sunshine burns if you get too much. So plant your own garden and decorate your own soul instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. You learn that you really can endure, that you really are strong, and you really do have worth. You learn that with every goodbye, there’s a hello. Take chances. Tell the truth. Date someone totally wrong for you. Say no. Spend all your cash. Fall in love. Be random. Say I love you. Cry. Apologize. Tell someone how much they mean to you. Drink until the bottle’s empty. Sing out loud. Tell an asshole how you feel. Let someone know what they’re missing. Laugh until your stomach hurts. Live Life."

been a long time

do we have to talk about where i've been? can we just move forward, knowing that i am here bc i love you, blog world. at this point in life, i am clinging to the things that bring smiles to this face of mine, and i am.

i recently worked on a project for school (kind of), though it may have been more of a project for life. wanted to share some of the highlights with you...

"...and I became to them as one who lifts the yoke from their jaws..."

"...and may you have power to wide, how long, how high, and how deep his love is"

"...and such we are"
