e.e. cummings, “let it go - the”

invisibleforeigner:

let it go – the

smashed word broken
open vow or
the oath cracked length
wise – let it go it
was sworn to
go

let them go – the
truthful liars and
the false fair friends
and the boths and
neithers – you must let them go they
were born
to go

let all go – the
big small middling
tall bigger really
the biggest and all
things – let all go
dear

so comes love

“Just because one person’s problem is less traumatic than another’s doesn’t mean they’re required to hurt less.”

— J.A. Redmerski, The Edge of Never  (via thatkindofwoman)

Sometimes I forget about things that make me happy and then when I remember, it’s as if I am discovering it for the first time again. I haven’t watched this video in years. I can’t remember the last time that I’ve yell-sung this song. The colors. The photography. The music. The lyrics. The dancing. The energy. It’s all inspiring and I hope that it gives you four minutes of happiness, too. 

I turn the music up
I’m on a roll this time
And heaven is in sight

I am so grateful for places that remind me of how small I am and how big God is. I am forever in awe of how beautiful this world is and am so grateful for my amazing best friends that I get to share these memories with.

As a Christian who struggles with depression and addiction, I couldn’t scream “AMEN!!” any louder at this piece.

"It grieves my heart that counseling is taboo. That being not okay is not okay, and that asking for help should come secondary to our pride."
YES - this stigma has got to change! This article is important.

It has been a lovely spring break. I am grateful for so much - for family and friends that love me despite my many inadequacies, for salty air and warm sunshine, for grace that abounds in every area of life, for laughter that makes my tummy ache, for reuniting with dear friends and making new ones, for technology that is the next best thing to actually hanging out, for free-flowing conversations that are full of authenticity and realizations, for the opportunity to witness love being poured out in my community - all of which would not be possible without my God and His thoughtfulness…to bring these people into my life is something I will never fully comprehend. Tonight as I reflect on this past week, my heart is filled with gratitude and amazement. When I think of all that I have, rather than what is lacking, I realize that life is all about perspective. All of these reasons help strengthen this perspective of gratitude. I hope that I can continue this - to remember who and what and the reasons why I am thankful for - every day, rather than just on the days where I am on a “break”. I hope to be more intentional in trying to pause throughout my days, no matter where I am or what I’m doing, and shift my perspective. Side note:: this photo was taken while eating at Chubbie’s. Cory and Shawn, where you at?!

“Compassion asks us to go where it hurts, to enter into the places of pain, to share in brokenness, fear, confusion, and anguish. Compassion challenges us to cry out with those in misery, to mourn with those who are lonely, to weep with those in tears. Compassion requires us to be weak with the weak, vulnerable with the vulnerable, and powerless with the powerless. Compassion means full immersion in the condition of being human.”

— Henri Nouwen
