I really like my life right now,” she says. “I have friends around me all the time. I’ve started painting more. I’ve been working out a lot. I’ve started to really take pride in being strong. I love the album I made. I love that I moved to New York. So in terms of being happy, I’ve never been closer to that.” Which is not necessarily the same as being happy.

You were alive before they came around, so don’t let them stop you from living again. Just because they didn’t want you, doesn’t mean you are unwanted. Just because they didn’t want forever with you, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve a forever. Just because love wasn’t written for you both, doesn’t mean your life is written with any less love.

You are going to breathe again, because they might have taken the breath from you, but they can’t take the rest of you.

And I love this storyline because I see it being presented as something that’s a pretty normal part of a relationship, that it’s being used as something to help them grow, to help Usagi grow, to help her relationship with Mamoru grow, to help her relationship with her daughter grow.

She’s at a point in her life where that kind of maturity doesn’t come naturally to her yet, that she’s getting there, that she’s not actually a child anymore, and the reason why I love the way the jealousy is used in this storyline is because the Usagi at the end of it (well, at the end of the manga, I don’t know about the end of the musical, I’m liveblogging as I go) has matured, that it was used well as a story element to drive her character forward.

I love it because it gives my OTP something to do, it gives them a story and shows how their relationship works and evolves.  I don’t want perfection from them, not at all!

I want THIS, I want them jealous and not quite on the same page 100% of the time.  I want to see them working at it, that they’re an epic miracle romance and all that, but that they also have everyday lives and everyday reactions to these epic circumstances, that they CAN work through them and make themselves stronger, because they TALK TO EACH OTHER.

It might take a bit, but they love each other and at the end of the day, they come together and are better for having worked through their problems.


People think eating healthy is cheap but it really isn’t. It’s because people think “healthy” means not eating too many or too few calories and getting some fruits and veggies but it’s really not that simple. What if I don’t want corn syrup in my foods? What if I don’t want to eat beef that’s been eating corn and living in it’s own excrement it’s entire life? What if I don’t want to eat chicken that’s been given an ammonia bath? That shit is NOT cheap. 

my life is going nowhere. i hate my job. i still live with my parents. no boyfriend. nobody likes me. worst of all, i’m on my last beer. fuck 

I got kissed on the cheek by a girl on my WP team a few hours ago for winning a stuffed bear for her birthday. Jesus christ i wanted to melt i need that affection 24/7 in my life

How are you doing, Todd? You okay? Life can be overwhelming sometimes. I hope you are being patient and gentle with yourself. I'm praying for you tonight. e.

Hello e,

I am doing good! Just getting past the struggles of the past couple of weeks, and slowly being repaired by Christ. It’s interesting how when we open ourselves to God, and say “Pour Yourself into me, Lord.” how God will pour Himself into us. A well is no good if it is dry, in fact, we can harm those around us when we try and offer ourselves to them. Sometimes we need to let God rain into us, fill us up and restore our cracked parts.

Just because you are doing His ministry, does not mean you are invincible against being worn down, because you will be torn apart when you start to do God’s plan on your own. Our own glory will ruin us, this is why we must let only Christ’s glory shine from us, and let Him be the one who fuels us!

This has been a time of rest, a time of sitting at the feet of He who calls me by name. Who says “Let the children come.” even though He saw the stars being made, and the earth being formed… He still calls the smallest of us, to sit with Him and know that He loves us infinitely.

So, I am sitting with Christ, the One who loves me endlessly.


people who only talk about themselves and then ask you about your life just so they can start talking about themselves again……….

Welcome to the poly club, doll. Taking some time to recognize that life events can complicate personal tangles is a really admirable deal - I've been in that general area for a while now. I really enjoy this way, though. It definitely requires a much higher level of interpersonal respect than a lot of other relationship types do. Just wanted to say I know your pain with folks demanding labels for pretty simple stuff. Eventually folks'll figure out sex and partnership aren't the same deal.

I think it’s the right thing for me at the moment. :) Thanks for the support. I think living in a way other people project on you gets tiresome eventually. Just a matter of time when I was going to dig up more wants and needs for Bunny!
