"To Thine Own Self Be True"

"But I really do love myself!"

Sure you do. I hear that all the time. But I don't see very much of that self-love.

And it's a hard thing to do. I know. It took me many
 years to embrace myself lovingly.

Don't deny yourself the things which make you happy.
Do enjoy all that gives you pleasure and joy.

Don't let other's opinions hold you back from realizing your full potential.
Do find activities which contribute to your health and sanity.

Don't actively sabotage yourself and your happiness.
Do foster relationships with people who honor you.

Don't engage in things that harm you or your well-being.
Do follow through on your dreams.

I  Love You... Please Love Yourself

Beautiful Rollercoaster
Life - human or any other form - is in constant motion with opposing forces.

The experiences can start slow then escalate to fast,
 or proceed in the exact opposite direction.

Climbing to great heights, only to careen downward quickly; 
full on expecting it, and generally not.

Twists and turns are had, always.

Feeling the physical ravages of the forces life has to offer;
sometimes we can't recover from them.

But the joy and the excitement of every experience gives the rider
moments of anticipation that are like nothing else.

It's beauty in motion...

Exquisite pain in the extremes.

I Got You

"If love is knowing and accepting someone for who they truly are, and feeling
 the same in return, this is as visceral and connecting as it gets."

Julie Lynn

We're on the same page. I accept you as you accept me.

We're together.

I'm safe... so are you.

Life will not tear me down as long as I choose to protect you and me. 

I hope that means forever...
