It's really quite simple- find what it is that makes you happy and who it is that makes you happy... and you're set. Promise.

“ That’s who you really like. The people you can think out loud in front of.

Just a bit of girly advice.

For in case I am ever blessed with daughters, I have started this list. (yes, I will be a mum with a list)

- Whole grains and fresh fruit are good choices. but a cupcake is worth every calorie.

-If you're asking yourself if you should have another drink, the answer is probably 'no'

- Never shake someone's hand sitting down. Your grandad always told me this, and since he is wise, you should listen.

-A woman is 'pregnant' not 'preggers'.

-Your sexuality is not a bargaining chip in the negotiation of life. Dont trade on it, it is something specifically and only yours to explore and enjoy with someone you love. If you treat it as anything less, youre just gambling away your shot at true intimacy in pursuit of a false sense of worth.

-Champagne is for sipping. Trust me.

-Sometimes you just have to cry it out. Crying can be therapeutic, it's a girl thing. Just don't do it at work.

-Always treat people well. What goes around, comes around.

-Return your shopping trolley. An abandoned trolly in the middle of a car park implies a sense of entitlement. Someone has to put it away, and that someone should be you.

-Leggings are not pants.

-Not everyone is going to like you and thats just fine.

- Be generous. with your time, your money, your heart. If there was a single lesson I could hope on my best day to impart to you, this would be it.

more to come...

T- "I don't like men with tattoos on their faces, they scare me"

B- "Good, go with that. You don't marry those men"

T- "I know, I doubt I would ever kiss one"

There is beauty...

There is beauty in the challenges, the hard decisions, the life transitions. Seasons that feel like they swallow you whole and spit out your bones. In your choices that alter your thoughts, and the choices others make which alter your heart, there is beauty. When you're overwhelmed because you don't have all the pretty answers. During the times where no path feels right, where you fall flat on your face and the times where you don't know what to do next. There is beauty.
These are the times that stretch us to become greater than we ever imagined ourselves to be. These are the times that cracked us wide opened and enabled us to rise to the next level. These are the times that make us. Make us see that the world isn't black and white. These are the pivotal moments where it is up to us to stay stuck or dive in. To choose to wear your heart on your sleeve and gamble on someone, because if it works out... well, it would change your life. Choose to step out, to leap, to dive in. Perhaps this very instant is our time.

//// I think it's time for a few canon balls, friends! Let's dive together////

On the stage they stand, like statues waiting for the world to end.
The crowd walks in and sees the make up, and thinks it's make up.
They see the tricks, and think they're tricks.
They see a shot ring out from what they think is a toy gun and someone dies, again.

And as I leave, one of them presses a note into my hand.
"It's not pretend. It's all real. Please help me."

I've read it.

It's perfectly ok... shove it in your closet and consider your place cleaned. take every single personal day, holiday and sick day that you are entitled to discover all your new music courtesy of "The Hills" secretly hope that your exes consider you the one that got away find the word "panties" totally creepy consider riding a swing a form of cardio correct people who mispronounce your name. push your sunglasses up on your head and consider it a hairstyle act all "candid" when someone pulls out a camera think the fireworks were a wee bit excessive. How many small countries could that feed? ask for chicken on your vegie burger not change out of your pajamas
...and its ok to be ok with the things that are ok. Life is what it is and its too short to not be the real you.
JD: "Britt, what are you eating"
B: "Almonds, good for you"
JD: "Would those almonds have a coating of chocolate?"
B: "Totally beside the point"
This time baby, I'll be bulletproof...

"lets go to DC and hold hands publicly"

“Whatever you do, you need courage. Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising that tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires some of the same courage that a soldier needs. Peace has its victories, but it takes brave men and women to win them.”
-ralph waldo emerson.
