“I MEAN, IS ‘FAT’ REALLY THE WORST THING A HUMAN BEING CAN BE? IS ‘FAT’ WORSE THAN ‘VINDICTIVE’, ‘JEALOUS’, ‘SHALLOW’, ‘VAIN’, ‘BORING’ OR ‘CRUEL’? NOT TO ME … I’D RATHER [MY DAUGHTERS] WERE INDEPENDENT, INTERESTING, IDEALISTIC, KIND, OPINIONATED, ORIGINAL, FUNNY – A THOUSAND THINGS, BEFORE ‘THIN’.”

Messages from chance.

You: You get to have beauty, brains and incomparable charm. It’s a wonder my self esteem isn’t worse around you. You are light. I actually wanted to dedicate my latest work to you – its a work in progress that i’m writing but I realized that its you, it’s all for you.

Me: I love you dearly. Those words are part of what makes up the reason for my ‘light’. Because i know, and realize the beauty I have around me.

You: Anje, you are everything.

And my heart melts…

We all live for these tiny, seemingly insignificant conversations that create within us the ‘unbearable lightness of being’ they talk about. Keep heart and dispel in all sorrows and fears, because one day they will all be turned into joys, I am slowly seeing before me how this is happening – and conversations like these are chances that create it.

I believe every lie I ever told
Paid for every heart that I ever stole
Played my cards and I didn’t fold
Well it ain’t that hard when you got soul

Somewhere I heard that life is a test
I’ve been through the worst, but I still give my best
God made my mold different from the rest
Then he broke that mold so I know I’m blessed

I got all the answers to your questions
I’ll be the teacher you can be the lesson
I’ll be the preacher be the confession
I’ll be the quick relief to all your stressing

It’s a thin line between love and hate
Is you really real or is you really fake?
I’m a soldier standing on my feet
No surrender and I won’t retreat

The new motto

Life is like a race in space.

We find ourselves eternally between two worlds; the earth a tiny dot behind us, the moon a tiny dot ahead…

When we get to the moon, will it be everything we dreamed of? And would it be worth everything we left behind?

These questions define how vast new endeavors may scare us and fill us with trepidation; but it also highlights the beauty of how we can look back and realize – take that chance, and never look back again.

The sky is not the limit. It’s the point of view.
