they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

up and through.

i've been thinking a lot about courage. and that sometimes being brave means just making it through. i think i always saw bravery as this move of strength and power - this gargantuan effort that would be rewarded with bursts of praise and applause.

but i'm starting to think it's really just about not breaking. it's not letting temporary discomfort become permanent. it's learning when to say no. when to say yes. and when to be okay with imperfection.

it's looking at yourself in the mirror. and not wanting to change a thing.
