"Losing weight is not your life’s work, and counting calories is not the call of your soul. You surely are destined for something much greater, much bigger, than shedding 20 pounds or tallying calories.
What would happen if, instead of worrying about what you had for breakfast, you focused instead on becoming exquisitely comfortable with who you are as a person? Instead of scrutinizing yourself in the mirror, looking for every bump and bulge, you turned your gaze inward?"

What Are Your Summer Plans?

"It’s dark because you are trying too hard. Lightly child, lightly. Learn to do everything lightly. Yes, feel lightly even though you’re feeling deeply. Just lightly let things happen and lightly cope with them. I was so preposterously serious in those days…Lightly, lightly – it’s the best advice ever given me…to throw away your baggage and go forward. There are quicksands all about you, sucking at your feet, trying to suck you down into fear and self-pity and despair. That’s why you must walk so lightly. Lightly my darling…"

I Sometimes Think
of all the hardship we endured before we knew one another, and how if I knew it would lead to you I would gladly relive the darkness. but I remember those nights when I felt dead inside, when I felt nothing good would ever come of my suffering. I remember being distinctly alone, so numb I would stand in the rain just to feel something. cold. but I survived. and now I have met you. to think you were in the rain, too, just to feel something, breaks my heart. but now that I am so overwhelmed with happiness I cannot recall the feeling of defeat.
