I make light in dark minds
You take the signal inward and it shines

Happy Birthday, John Frusciante!

It’s become such a rarity nowadays to find someone to fall in love with and stay in love with. People seem to forget how beautiful it is to grow old with someone, to build and witness someone’s progression and to conquer obstacles as a team instead of facing them alone. I guess it’s safe to say there’s not enough thrill in it for them. There’s no thrill in comfortability and knowing someone like the back of your hand. I guess that’s why you can call me an old soul. I don’t need to go out all the time and switch people up every other week to fulfill my boredom with temporary happiness. I always wanted something real, someone so genuine that they’re worth lasting a lifetime with. Someone who’s willing to invest the time and effort that’s needed to win instead of forfeiting when “there’s no coming back.” I understand it’s nearly impossible nowadays to count on someone with all your heart and soul. It’s more dangerous, if than anything, I guess that’s why you can count me as one of the rare ones. I’m not just in it for a reason, season, or lifetime… I’m in it for all three.

Let spring
wash out the dirt
in your soul
and grow beautiful
young flowers
in the empty places
of your heart
Let it bathe you
and cleanse your mind
leaving room only
for happiness
and peace.
—  This is your chance to a fresh start

Beauty is much more than the physical; it’s something that lies deep within. You can keep searching and searching, but the harder you look, the harder it becomes to find. Beauty isn’t something you can achieve, but rather something you cultivate…grow. It’s a seed that’s rooted inside of you, and it’s how you choose to tend to it that determines how it’s shown. The deeper it’s rooted in your soul, the greater it will blossom. So let your beauty thrive. It’s buried somewhere inside of you. All you have to do is dig it back up from where it’s been left behind.
You are beautiful, and always will be, for beauty is never lost, just often forgotten… so please don’t forget who you are

Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation.

At an after-party, I heard someone grouching that if they’d nominated Idina for Best Actress and me for Best Featured Actress, we both could have won, and I suppose that’s possible (thought I wouldn’t make any assumptions; there were some great performances in the Featured Actress category that year). But winning another Tony would not have made me happy f it meant reducing Glinda from a lead to a sidekick. I love the idea of two lead actresses in one show. How often do we see that in a major Broadway musical? Before Wicked, you basically saw a male and a female lead, two male leads, or Gypsy. Winning another Tony would have been nice, but the joy, the challenge, the ridiculous thrill of helping to create this character and grow this soul-beautiful, mind-expanding, box-office-busting show -that was huge. Makes me feel like I defied some gravity my own bad self.

Some they tell me I’m a fool, a fool who walks this road alone

So afraid of making changes, remember that nothing is carved in stone

Oh tell me why we are so afraid of the secrets locked within our souls

Everything that we’re made of is dying just to be exposed

So don’t turn your back on yourself, cause there’s nowhere to run

The problem with you is that you don’t like yourself enough to accept the fact that other people like you because you don’t see the lovable part of you which is your soul. Loving yourself won’t make you less of yourself. It makes you grow into more beautiful soul. Love yourself, honey.
