Surround yourself with people who make you happy. People who make you laugh, who help you when you're in need. People who genuinely care. They are the ones worth keeping in your life. Everyone else is just passing through.

* * * countdown * *

i made an advent calendar this year so that i don't miss the season.
each box holds a surprise. 
a treat. chocolate is usually involved.
or an activity. something seasonal.

Because in the end, you won't 
remember the time you spent working
 in the office or mowing the lawn. 
Climb that goddamn mountain.

we voted no. we were heard.

I find this song extremely relevant at this moment.

I held my breath during the election. I drove past billboards reading "marriage = one man + one woman" with a tight chest and a sad heart for months before the big day.

MN voted NO to change the definition of marriage to the union of one man and one woman. Heck yes.

Can you imagine if the constitution of the United States read

with liberty, equality and justice for all?

"there are two goddesses in your heart, " he told them. "the goddess of wisdom and the goddess of wealth. everyone thinks they need to get wealth first, and wisdom will come. so they concern themselves with chasing money. but they have it backwards. you have to give your heart to the goddess of wisdom, give her all your love and attention, and the goddess of wealth will become jealous, and follow you."
