Big Red. The Sasquatch. Mr Abs.
Life goes on… Don’t let the ones who hurt you hold you back from seeing that…
“Elephants have been known to die of broken hearts if a mate dies. They refuse to eat and will lay down, shedding tears until they starve to death. They refuse all human help.”
And I thought it was just penguins.
Read this book in one sitting tonight. It’s still going round and round in my head and I’m trying to make sense of it as best I can.
Despite how tired I am, despite how much I just wanted to crawl under the covers, close my eyes, and give into the gentle caress that is sleep, instead I forced myself to stay awake, desperate to know the ending.
In short, I loved it.
I get that some people think it’s a patronising self-help book. I get that others think it’s just more ‘God is good!’ crap. I liked it anyway. I liked that it brought everything together. I liked it in spite of those things.
Mostly I just really liked that at a time when I’m trying to hear exactly what it is my heart wants so that I can follow that desire, this book told me that doing so is what leads to inner peace.
Something I always struggle with is the difference between hurdles and bad omens… I’m still reconciling that in my head…
Anyway. It’s read now. It’s stuck in my head. And I feel a gentle peace as I absorb the secrets and messages hidden in it’s pages.
My favourite quote? This one…
Just discovered this song.
Wow. This chick’s voice. Have the new album but not all the older stuff. This one will be on high rotation for a while.
While I have said ‘see ya later’ in place of ‘goodbye’, it doesn’t mean I’m not carrying a little sad in my day. This is how I feel. Exactly how I feel.
We let things go to see if they come back to us, to see if we can move past the hurt.
This song. Ah.
“You can’t find the phone, so you can call it off
But it might be for the best
You can’t walk away, anyway
Cause you’ve nowhere else to go
Is he worth all this, is it a simple yes?
Cause if you have to think, it’s fucked.
Feels like you loved him more, than he loved you
And you wish you’d never met”
This song. Every time I hear it I wonder why I forget about it when it tells such a good story and has such a nice message. Some time or another we all get hurt, but life goes on.
This isn’t everything you are.
