After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security.
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn…
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong
And you really do have worth…
And you learn and learn…
With every good-bye you learn.

Jorge Luis Borges

Never ignore a person who loves you, cares for you, and misses you. Because one day, you might wake up from your sleep and realize that you lost the moon while counting the stars.

8320

You’ve survived every single day
for as long as you’ve been alive.
You could spit fire if you wanted.
— Clementine von Radics
I have survived every single day for 8,320 days.  If I disregard the first few years of my life when I was pretty much coasting along as a barely sentient baby, that still includes hundreds, if not thousands, of days as scary and anxiety-producing as those that are coming up. Many days were even worse. These past 2 weeks, especially, have tested my confidence and strength, but I’m still here now, aren’t I?
I was really dreading this next stage in my life, and, to be honest, I’m still pretty freaking scared. But, overall I feel more at ease, because, clearly, I can handle it.
Remember that most miserable night of your life? You beat that. Whatever it is you’re worrying about now, remember that you’ve made it through worse. You can do anything. Tear it up. You got this.
Of course.

Holy Grail Caffeine

I was feeling glum about work to the point where not even happy Ella Fitzgerald jazz could motivate me to start. But then I drank a cup of coffee and now I’m roaring and ready to go.

Is this the start of an addiction? : o
