But they make me absolutely dread going back to work. Knowing that I have to start on Tuesdays now makes me want to cry. Once I get there and finish up my shift I feel okay, but I hate the buildup. It makes me sick.

Even though it’s cold I opened the windows and doors. I figure being cold will motivate me to keep moving and get some organizing and cleaning done today.
Also there are two cloth diapers waiting at the front office for me! And we got our security deposit back from the power company so our power bill was covered this month, which means I get to do some online shopping for maternity clothes!
I needed today. Yesterday was dark and rainy and I cried a lot, so I’m thankful for the sunlight and the blue sky and the little blossoms on the bushes.

I never realized until seeing this picture that my interpretation of an average size woman has become REALLY SKEWED oh my god I wanna cry
Babe. She’s flawless.
1.There will be days when you don’t wake up feeling beautiful. Go back to sleep on these days. Set an alarm. Wake up over and over again until the sun kisses you so hard, you glow.
2. Learn to stop tattooing sad songs across your wrist. Your pulse will start sounding like a final breath, and that’s not the kind of music you want to make, baby.
3. There is an orchestra in your footsteps. There is a piano in your spine. There is poetry in your heartbeat. Your eyelashes cast shadows like stage lighting. You will wear musical notes across your chest that warn the others that this is no small production.
4. When they don’t want to love you, don’t stop singing. You can’t be everyone’s favorite song, no matter how beautiful you are.
5. Your heart isn’t clumsy just because it keeps walking into things. Sometimes, it takes a while to learn how to walk.
6. Even the stars feel dull sometimes. They’re still stars. They’re still a miracle.
7. You are still miracle. You are still miracle.
8. It’s okay if you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s okay. The trees have been alive for hundreds of years, and some days they still shake, too.
9. You are made of untranslated languages. Words no one has been brave enough to try to speak. That doesn’t make them any less holy.
10. The words inside of you can wrap around your heart like a cast. But only if you want to heal.
11. It’s time that you start wanting to heal. It’s the only way you can. It’s the only way you can. — Y.Z, Getting better (via rustyvoices)
Let me give you a word of warning. Sensitive, conscientious people run the risk of going overboard about finding and rooting out their sin. They desperately want to please God, and they think they can help him by looking for sin in their lives. They analyze every conversation and every action looking for sinful motives and wrong behavior. If this goes on long enough, they begin to find sin where there is none, and the focus of their lives becomes morbid self-absorption. Their noble desire to root out sin becomes a spiritual death trap of beating themselves up for any and all perceived wrongs. If you are a conscientious person, be careful not to try to do God’s job for him.
You can be very certain that the Holy Spirit will point out sin when he wants to. At that point, allow him to burn it away with the fire of his holiness and forgiveness, and give thanks for his grace and mercy. Then move on. I’ve seen the zeal of too many men and women lead them to destruction instead of joy. Don’t let that happen to you. — David Nasser, A Call to Die (via yesdarlingido)
