The Mirror To My Soul

Read the Printed Word!

Anonymous asked: Life was pretty awful, but it is getting better now. I guess I made some changes, and I'm figuring out what I want.

Why was it awful?

Anonymous asked: I would say that it will get better in time. That's something I'm realizing.

How?

we should teach our children
to love themselves.”

Anonymous asked: Happy Easter. I hope life is being good to you.

Life is well. But what would you say if I said it wasn’t?

There’s something so real about holding hands; some kind of complex simplicity, saying so much by doing so little. I love it.

“Learning to let go should be learned before learning to get. Life should be touched, not strangled. You’ve got to relax, let it happen at times, and at others move forward with it.”

"Cause I could never try enough to show you I can be the love that we’re not hiding from this time."

“Sometimes, you read a book and it fills you with this weird evangelical zeal, and you become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans read the book.”

I search for bookstores that hold all of the answers to life’s problems. I store made of old and vanilla, holding the books that have answers that I can only find by reading the contents cover to cover, searching tirelessly for something that makes sense, for something that I can relate to. Like love. And loving love. And longing for love once felt in the face of every person I see; how to find that. 
These books, those people, we are all searching for something in someone around us. We are all fountains, endlessly spouting in hopes that there will be something, someone, out there that will show us that there’s a reason why our hearts feel the way that they do. And that’s it okay. That it’s all going to be okay. That everything that we stand for is important. That everything that we feel is normal. 
Books hold so much. You just have to be looking for something if you want to find it sometimes.
