Little Wisdoms

Did you say it?
"I love you".
"I don't ever want to live without you".
"You changed my life".
Did you say it?
Make a plan. Decide a goal. Work toward it.. But every now and then, look around. Drink it in..
'Cause this it.
It might all be gone tomorrow.

More

I have an aunt who, whenever she poured anything for you, would say: “Say when”. My aunt would say, “Say when,” and of course, I never did.
We don’t say “when” because there’s something about the possibility of more. More tequila. More love. More anything. More is better.
There’s something to be said about a glass half full. About knowing when to say “when.” I think it’s a floating line. A barometer of need and desire. It’s entirely up to the individual… and depends on what’s being poured. Sometimes, all we want is a taste. Other times, there’s no such thing as enough. The glass is bottomless.
And all we want… is more.

I'm sorry

As human beings we can’t undo our mistakes. And we rarely forgive ourselves for them. But it’s a hazard of the trade. But as human beings, we can also try to do better.., to be better.., to right our wrong. Even when it feels irreversible.
Of course, 'I’m sorry', doesn’t always cut it, maybe because we use it so many different ways. As a weapon, as an excuse.

But when we are really sorry, when we use it right, when we mean it, when actions speak what words never can..
When we get it right.., 'I’m sorry' is perfect.
When we get it right.., 'I’m sorry' is redemption.
