Lover By Heart

February 05, 2018

"And let us remember that the way we know for sure that we are fighting the good fight is because our methods, strategies, and behavior are not those of the fighter, but those of the lover instead."

Let Go Already

January 23, 2018

The past is the past. You can't erase, change or take back a single thing - not a gesture nor a few harsh words. The only thing that matters (now) is how you overcome what's happened to you and how you carry yourself as a person, as a human being, regardless of everything or anyone. The most complicated thing in this life is the human heart - it feels just about everything. So don't be bitter, don't hold on to anger, don't ruin another person's happiness - simply let go.

Hey there old man,

Wherever you are. . . just know we're thinking of you today.

Happy 55th birthday!

I love you.

"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone  who doesn't understand growth, it would look like complete destruction."

Yeah, Me Too

"The brokenhearted are indeed the bravest among us — they dared to love and they dared to forgive." 

— Brene Brown

To all the women who can relate to this, just know that we stand together, to heal and to forgive. You are not defined by what happened to you. You are strong and resilient.

Another Year Without Him

October 03, 2017

3 Years

I cried all the way home
I fueled my sadness with music
Just for a few minutes
I let go of all the agony
And it felt damn good
I go days and weeks without thinking of you
I temporarily forget in a way
And then the misery
Of not having you around settles back in
And  I'm back to square one
But feeling this way
Keeps every memory of you alive
It makes it more real
It happened
You were here
Your love was real
It keeps me grounded
I love you and I miss you
