friday free for all: checking in.

hi readers, i want to start out by saying thank you for sticking with me after last friday's post, and i really appreciate the kind thoughts left there.  i dipped to four posts this week and it was really helpful.

i want to share this beautiful quote by zooey deschanel with you today: 

being tender and open is beautiful.  as a woman, i feel continually shhh’ed.  too sensitive.  too mushy.  too wishy washy.  blah blah.  don’t let someone steal your tenderness.  don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart.  nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things.  whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep…feel it all – look around you.  all of this is for you.  take it and have gratitude.  give it and feel love. 
 — Zooey Deschanel 

these words have meant a lot to me this week as i went through some ups and downs, heard some very sad news, and had some very fun moments.  i've been a little overly emotional, and it feels good to say i'm not trying to hide it right now.  i'm just being me, emotions and all  :)  looking forward to recharging this weekend.

have a wonderful weekend.
