Love isn’t only love. It’s hard work, and trust, and tears, with even a few glimpses of devastation. But at the end of each day, if you can still look at the person at your side and can’t imagine anyone else you’d rather have there, the pain and heartache and the ups and downs of love are worth it.
Sometimes we’re not feeling inspired or productive. No matter what we do or how hard we try, the brain just isn’t cooperating with us. Honor that, and just go with the flow. You never know where you’re being led until you just surrender and allow yourself to be just that, L.E.D.
Embrace your downtime, embrace the silence. Let go and let God.
People don’t always want to be with people. It gets tiring.
Men in general make judgments more by appearances than by reality, for sight alone belongs to everyone, but understanding to few.
Machiavelli in Rites of Power, David Kertzer
