“That’s the thing about life; it is fragile, precious, and unpredictable, and each day is a gift, not a given right.”

-Holly Butcher

3:42 AM

It was 3:42 am

and time slipped by

like water leaking out of cupped hands.

No matter how tightly you squeezed your fingers together,

drop by drop, your time leaked out.

The world was quiet and dark

and all you could hear was the sound of your breathing

and the hum of the refrigerator.

The richest man in the world can never buy the seconds back

Neither can the most accomplished man, who was the first in everything.

But the ones who give the most love

The ones who give all their oxygen to those who can already breathe,

They are the ones who have all the time in the world.


Begin Again

“Secrets” AND “Hey, Soul Sister” on the radio within a few minutes of each other? BLESS.

Sometimes you just have to be the “bigger” person.


For the first time in a long time

I feel happy

truly, completely happy

not because of you

but because of me

and how far I’ve come these past few months

emotionally, physically, and intellectually

I can do things without feeling judgement

I can do things without your criticizing them


I can do all the things I wanted us to do together but never will

Perfectly Imperfect #39

“It was just an eyeopener of how reckless some people are with other people’s feelings…

putting another person’s needs and wants and your relationship as an accessory to your life instead of an actual person with red blood and thoughts and a soul and you treat them as a second person”

I thought actions spoke louder than words.
