You wanna know what living life to the fullest actually is? It’s waking up on a Monday morning with no complaints. It’s knowing you always deserve to laugh. It’s doing what feels right no matter what. It’s doing what you want to, no matter how stupid you look. It’s about being yourself, ‘cause no one can tell you you’re doing it wrong.

We have to allow ourselves to be loved by the people who really love us, the people who really matter. Too much of the time, we are blinded by our own pursuits of people to love us, people that don’t even matter, while all that time we waste and the people who do love us have to stand on the sidewalk and watch us beg in the streets! It’s time to put an end to this. It’s time for us to let ourselves be loved.

I can get my head turned by a good-looking guy as much as the next girl. But sexy doesn’t impress me. Smart impresses me, strength of character impresses me. But most of all, I am impressed by kindness. Kindness, I think, comes from learning hard lessons well, from falling and picking yourself up. It comes from surviving failure and loss. It implies an understanding of the human condition, forgives its many flaws and quirks. When I see that in someone, it fills me with admiration.

4 a.m. knows all our secrets

My phone buzzed at an unGodly hour this morning. J was working.

He was talking about his job, a job that he’s worked so hard for, a job he loves. He said that a year ago he had plans of”making it” but even he didn’t know what that meant. With a knack for sales and marketing he thought, a Territory Sales Rep, and that’s the best thing he could get. To man the post and keep people in line to make the 1% happy.

And now he has a job that is so much more than that. He has a career he didn’t even know he should hope for, work for or dream for.

There are things out there that are so good, it doesn’t even occur to us to wish for them. It’s the stillness in the morning hours where you realize everything. This morning I realized that my life was at this peak and when I bowed my head to say a prayer of thanks, for the first time, it wasn’t for myself but for anyone and everyone else.
