11/11 11:11 I wish……

I wish….
  • that I never forget what it is like to lose everything.
  • that over the next 6 months, I really figure out who I am, what I want, and where I want to be… so that I can find someone who fits into that.
  • that everyone gets a time in their lives where they are broken and are force to rebuild– but come out so much better, stronger, and happier than they ever thought possible.
  • that people loved a little more, and judged a little less.
  • that no one would be allergic to cats.
  • the Modern Family goes on for 18 more seasons.
  • that people educated themselves before speaking so assuredly.
  • that people accepted differences. We’re not made that same, we’re not designed to be the same.
  • that Nora would get her butt out here so we can do amazing things like Union Square, Naan & Curry, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Oh, and that she feels all the love in the world. Cause that’s important, especially for those who life others… they should never feel alone, abandoned, or isolated.
  • that there were an extra hour in the day that I could use to sleep.
  • that everyone finds a path they are happy with. A job, a passion, a love. Things that matter.
  • we all laughed more. It’s so easy to be bogged down by the day-to-day. The to-do list. The obligation. But their is beauty everywhere. If we are spending a day not realizing that, we’re wasting it. Go find something that moves you, every day. Fill a file with pictures that calm you soul, a journal with words that speak to you… be fulfilled. It’s your job to do it. No one is going to come and complete you. Complete yourself. Love yourself. Find joy, for yourself.
  • that cookie dough didn’t have calories. Just saying.
  • that salad things didn’t go bad so quickly… if I had a dollar for every produce item that went bad on me? I’d have, like, at least $12.
  • that people shrived to see the silver-lining of situations instead of taking the victim-position or relishing in the cynical like it was original and amazing.
  • we all realized the only thing we can control, is ourselves. Our attitudes, our reaction, the power we give others. I am done being a victim.

Do you want me to tell you something really subversive? Love is everything it’s cracked up to be. That’s why people are so cynical about it. It really is worth fighting for, being brave for, risking everything for. And the trouble is, if you don’t risk anything, you risk even more.

  1. What a list. Nearly moved me to tears. So many truths in this post. And yes, I want to come see you. We need to pick a weekend/date and I'll make it happen. I'd love to see San Fran! Also? Sending you a huge HUG for being so amazing.

  2. I love your list. I wish for many of the same things. :-)
