...To stay in love is to stay intentional and focused. It is to look at the familiar long and deep enough that it becomes unfamiliar once again. It is to keep walking...

This I scribbled on my coffee cup this morning, untangled thoughts from my knotted mind, as I sat in a way.too.loud coffee shop. It was the only paper I had so I made the most of it. 

Today I'm not wishing to escape my own skin. Today the sky is not falling. Today I'm reminded that we can only have one emotion at a time, and that we can choose. And that Hope is the only emotion stronger than fear. We can choose.
