  • There are things we are not told…

    2010 - 01.26

    There are things that we are not told when we are children, like…sometimes people aren’t going to like you. or that giving birth is messy and painful, or that when you get older not only are your breasts going to sag, but your knees will sag as well. We don’t come with a “how to live” manual, so I think maybe my mission, if I choose to accept it, is to write that manual. The one that allows us grace and forgiveness for being so utterly human. The one that reminds us to rejoice as time is etched on, what used to be, perfect skin. The one that reaches past or underneath the wu wu, the feel good, the don’t worry, and allows us to be confused, to not have the answers, to make the mistakes, to feel the fear, to say the wrong things, to wear the wrong clothes, to not be perfect, and to still be worthy of love and joy. That is what I am going to write about. Not becoming more god-like, but becoming fully human…
