females with ink

An experience I had this past weekend. It was the first time I’ve ever seen tampons in a men’s restroom and they were free! That’s awesome!

NOTE: Some colleges are providing free tampons in the restrooms. For anyone who is upset because “they aren’t free in the women’s room,” I want to point out that this was at one of those colleges. I can assure you they provided free tampons and pads in the women’s restroom too. 

she’s all wit and wildness, all brilliance and beauty
she’s the type of kindness I want to be


because she smiles during rainstorms 
and screams at the stars


and her laughter is the sound that makes flower bloom
and her rage, oh, it’s the thing that burns empires


because she stands up and never keeps quiet
and she’s always there to hold my hand when things get terrifying 


she’s the sunrise after the winter solstice 
the thing that looks gone but just comes back even stronger


and she sometimes doesn’t realize that there’s no limits on her power
she is fireworks gleaming overhead, bursting and crackling in chaos

What I’ve learned in 2017:

1. Vibes don’t lie. Trust the energy you’ve been receiving from the people you’re surrounded with.

2. I am an eternal and infinite source. As long as I’m alive there’s always love to give and things to learn.

3. There’s power in speaking words. If you want something say it out loud. Tell yourself and tell the universe.

4. Love exists but only if you speak highly of it in full belief. Love exists because I exist.

5. Sharing a couple of laughs with people doesn’t turn them into friends. Friends just happen.

6. Staying in the same places keeps you limited. There are pieces of you lying in different corners of the world. Home is home but sometimes you need to get out.

Dear you-know-who-you-are,

today is one of those days i think of you. it’s hard to tell you why but i just do. today i forget about all the bad we’ve been through and reminisce about all the good. today i miss you. i miss how you made me laugh and feel some type of way. did you know you were the only one who loved me for me? you cared for me in the purest way. i never needed make-up, hair extensions or fancy clothes. there was no point in all of that. all you had eyes for was my soul. today i think of that because it was beautiful. but sometimes beauty requires an ugly price to pay. yet today i close my eyes to the ugly. only today.
