Hold on to the impossible.

Dream ridiculously idealistic dreams, hold onto your "couldn't-ever-happen" hopes. Always.

Sunday, January 30, 2011

Sweet dreams.

I always hope for you to have the sweetest of dreams. I sing lullabies and hope that the wind will carry them to you.

People must be very happy there.

A friend of mine recently told me a story from an experience she had in her country. This friend is from Costa Rica, and while she was visiting there she spoke with a little boy. He asked her about America.

"Do you have a car?"
"Yes, I do," she said.
"People must all be happy in America."
"Well, no, many people are very sad," she told him.
"Why? People must be happy always there! There's always food, they always have food to eat. And you can buy whatever you want."

There's always food. People must be very happy there. Just take a moment and imagine the sort of life that most people live in this world. Try not to take all that you have for granted. Appreciate that fresh clean water you're drinking, appreciate that you had food to eat today. And if you can, if you have the heart, try to give to those who aren't so fortunate, and who are in need.

Let me tell you a secret.

I always call them adventures. Let me tell you a secret. Sometimes it's more like being really, really scared, but going on anyway.

Let's stop right here and just dream for a minute.

Someday we'll fly away to a place where all of our dreams will come true. We'll live in a tree, just me and you. There will be peace and love, and nothing bad will happen to us ever again.

And it will never be too cold; it will only ever be warm and safe. And when it rains, it will only ever the kind of rain that's fun to dance in.

The darkened glasses.

I want to take away your darkened glasses and show you a world full of hope.

Sometimes it's hard to feel safe when the world around us is so scary.

Stay safe. I love you.

The smallest of wonders.

Yes. The world is sad and scary, and bad things happen all the time. That's why we have to hold onto each other, take care of each other, and be happy for even the smallest of wonders.

Change lives.

Random acts of kindness can help so much more than you know. Seriously. They can change lives.

Thursday, January 20, 2011

Let's hold hands.

I want to hold hands with you. Just that. Holding hands. That's it. It's so simple, so kind, and so safe. Why are we so scared to reach out and hold onto someone?

Let's hold hands.

I don't make promises lightly.

There are truly marvelous, spectacular people in the world. There are.

I promise.

The risk it takes to (not) love.

Give your heart, your whole heart, to whatever or whomever you love. Take risks. The worst thing that can happen is not failure, not rejection, not heartbreak, but an unlived life. Be brave, my friend, and live.

You are important.

You make a difference in people's lives and may not even know it. A kind word, a smile, or something bigger. It makes an impact. You're important, and loved, and it is a wonderful thing that you are in this world. Remember that.

Until sunrise.

I miss you. I want to spend time with you. Let's get together and stay up talking until sunrise.

I'm glad we met each other.

Do you ever think about how you met the people who mean the most to you? It's funny how the most meaningful people in our lives, we may never have met, if not for a random set of circumstances.

I'm glad that you were there, and I was there, at that particular time, on that particular day. I'm glad we met each other.

The moments that are worth it.

There are moments of discouragement and despair. But there are also moments of hope and moments where we see how much we've touched the lives of others. And those are the moments worth going through all the rest of it for.

The beauty in the heartbreak.

When your heart breaks, you learn how much it hurts. And no one wants to be in pain.

The only way to heal a broken heart is to give all the love you have to others. Share kindness and compassion with everyone you meet. No one should ever feel unloved.

Monday, January 10, 2011

Only take with you what you have learned.

Only take with you what you have learned. Let it make you kind and understanding, not bitter and hardened. Use what you've been through to help others, and make the world more beautiful. Don't let yourself become a part of what makes it ugly. You are so much better and so much stronger than that.

Set yourself free.

Let go of the sadness and the anger and the fear. Whatever happened is in the past now. It can't hurt you anymore. Don't carry the pain with you forever. It's heavy, it hurts, just let it fall away from you.

Saturday, January 8, 2011


Try to see yourself in others. Be so kind to all of the people you encounter. They're hurting too, even if you can't see it.

Someone cares.

Notice the people who seem sad, scared, lonely. Look for the people who seem like they just don't fit in. And reach out to them. Show them that someone cares.

Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Don't worry.

I know that you are worried. I wish I could make it all better. Try to let go of the things you can't control, stop worrying about all that.

You are in my thoughts. Yes, you.

Monday, January 3, 2011

You are not alone.

If you're feeling ashamed, lost, afraid, unloved, worthless, know that someone else has felt the same. Whatever it is that you're feeling, you're not alone in it.

We are all in this together. So let's help each other.

The sound of laughter.

The sound of laughter is one of the best sounds in the world. Take life lightly today. Learn to laugh at yourself.

And other miracles.

Happy New Year! May it be a year of peace on earth and other miracles.
