I like quotes, and recently, I found the following in an old notebook, so I thought I would share.

“Life is pain, Highness. Anyone who tells you differently is selling something.” Princess Bride (Wesley to Buttercup)

“Our repetitive thoughts become our beliefs and life has a way of delivering experiences that match our beliefs” Guy W. Shilts, Jr. (In his book Guy’d Lines: Rules for Living from my 30 years as a Psychotherapist) He was also one of my Internship supervisors.

I found this one last night, and it resonated with me.
"The biggest coward is a man who awakens a woman's love without the intention of loving her." Bob Marley
I also like to write down words that I find interesting:

I know I have not been posting much. In truth, I have been going through somethings, and the words I normally post here either are not coming or are to personal that I’m not ready to share. I thank you for your continued support. Knowing that at least one person is taking the time to read what I write is enough. I like to write, mostly because I feel unheard most of the time. I’m working on changing this to become healthier and more confident in the fact that I matter. (Everyone does)

Black beauty revised

Black beauty running free,

just like you are meant to be.

“Why don’t you tame him?” She asked me one day.

My heart did not know what to say,

as I watched him roam, wild and free, hoping he would come back to me.

“He needs no master,” I began to say

“He needs his freedom. The choice must be his.”

She nodded and moved away. I continued to watch, hoping he would stay.

My heart went with him, when he left.

And my soul healed, for I have been blessed;

with a heart to give, and a heart to keep.

For loving myself is just as sweet.

Still the one that very few see.

There is always another shining next to me.

I treasure the ones who actually do see,

the light that shines inside of me.
