The best memories don’t need a photograph.
Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, Stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them.
Maybe today will be your big day and I hope that it is, but you don’t have to feel bad if it isn’t. Today doesn’t have to be perfect. It doesn’t have to be the day you change your life, the day you fix your problems, the day you start a new project, the day you heal, the day you win. Maybe today can just be the day you get out of bed or the day you are kinder to yourself than you were yesterday. Today doesn’t have to be everything. It just has to be today. It’s enough. It’s okay. There will be other days. There will be other chances. Until then, just enjoy this one as much as you can.
And now we’re supposed to go back to our normal lives. That’s what people do. They have these amazing experiences with another person, and then they just go home and clean the bathroom or whatever.

There is no why. You don’t have a right to the cards you believe you should have been dealt. You have an obligation to play the hell out of the ones you’re holding.
It’s such a freeing feeling to finally realize when someone sends you a shitty email, it is completely ok to NOT respond. I’m a fighter, I like people to know they are out of line but FINALLY realizing….winning an argument rarely affects the outcome. Unless my response will truly result in a different outcome, no response necessary. I will consider your passive aggressive shit venting.
Ebb and flow. Let it go, if you need to send shit across, instead of getting shit back I’m now sending crickets.
Crickets = power. ~J
