I read a great quote not that long ago, credited to only Ariana. I can’t find anything on her. It was simply,
“She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible. She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like angel’s wings.”
But then, I’ve never been accused of being normal.
I found this old photo of me, taken when I was probably 19 and in the throws of bulimia. I had no idea. – I know John Hughes would have loved me as a teen. But he had Molly already and there was no need for two of us.
I had this friend once who, when I was anxious and fearful would say “Breathe Darlin’ ” and I’d take a deep breath and calm down. We aren’t friends anymore. Life does that sometimes, but I never forgot that phrase.
So when life throws you for a loop
and it will
remember that even though it feels like you are carrying the universe on your shoulders, you make it look like angel’s wings. Just don’t forget to breathe.
