30 Day Challenge - Day 28

28. Do you wish for anything at 11:11? If so, what do you wish for?

I only recently discovered that the wishing at 11:11 mythos was a thing, so no, I've never tried it. Mostly due to my upbringing, I'm not the literal wish-making type. I tend towards prayer and direct action whenever I can. And if it's not meant to be, it's not.

Also, I think this is a perfect opportunity to encapsulate my approach to prayer by itself in another favorite quote of mine:

- Throwback songs from my college years.

30 Day Challenge - Day 25

I'll let one of my favorite quotes ever speak for myself:

30 Day Challenge - Day 24

24. Seven things that cross your mind a lot.

- I have found a word for the shifts that run in me: seismic.

- Here's one that crosses my mind every morning: wouldn't a permanent coma be nice right now? Come on, I know you've all had these at any given point in the time it takes for your alarm to shatter your brain cells.

- Men are so terrible and here I am, tragically heterosexual.

- Tomorrow will be the day when I stop comparing myself to my Facebook feed. It never comes.

- Tomorrow will also be the day I finally hit the exact perfect groove in my writing. I'm still trying.

- Will it ever be as good as doing?

- One thing finally leads to the next, and it's not perfect, but it's another step ahead. 

30 Day Challenge - Day 23

23. A letter to someone. Anyone.

To the one on my mind,

It hit me all at once today, how much I feel: I'm lucky to have met you.

I have been worried and scared sick, and mostly nauseatingly fixated on the notion that you and I have something permanent on the way. And somehow, I am happy and bewildered that it's more than something, and that you're weirdly cool with it.

And I'm sorry that I'm so caught up in my headspace (in this spark of a vortex that's drawn around you) and I'm sorry that I'm a writer who's often at a loss for the right words to really let you know how much what we have means to me right now.

... If I hugged you when we meet next, would you be able to tell how much I mean it?

I do, I do, I do.

If not in the content, you are writ large through every loop and cranny, snuggled in between the spaces where I struggle to make love from resonance, until I finally get this right. 

30 Day Challenge - Day 22

22. A picture of what you wore today.

Technically, what I wore to work yesterday.Collapse )
