How many books must a man buy a girl before they may date and live happily ever after?

Got it? Good. 

 

Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.

Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.

Collect books, even if you don’t plan on reading them right away. Nothing is more important than an unread library.

She is not “my girl.”

She belongs to herself. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.

How much more blessed can I be?

I wish I could show you,
When you are lonely or in darkness,
The astonishing Light
Of your own Being

My alone feels so good. I’ll only have you if you’re sweeter than my solitude.

I’ve found that growing up means being honest. About what I want. What I need. What I feel. Who I am.
