This poet-editor also had the habit in her younger years of leaving uplifting notes for strangers...
Give ourselves a long tight hug Pat ourselves upon the back Don’t pay too much attention to What we’re telling ourselves we lack...
"Now I see a cupcake with a Mickey Mouse voice telling me “you suck.” Which, of course, is adorable and hilarious..."
"I don't need to please everyone all the time."
"HOLY WOW RIGHT THERE!"
"I remembered 9 year old Sarah. I remembered how hard she struggled, what she felt like as a kid, the things she feared and the things that she loved..."
"You are strong enough to handle your challenges, wise enough to find solutions to your problems..."
Somewhere past the ceiling Somewhere past the eaves We hear a still voice whispering: “…with whom I am well pleased.”
"Now go love harder. Love louder. Love fully and don’t allow anyone ever again to make you feel that loving others is a bad thing."
