Do you believe in signs?

Personal things are going to be making less and less of an appearance, but I wanted to put this here…just in case.

Something happened today, which gave me a good sign (I think). 

Specifically, I asked (I’m not sure what/who I asked…god, fates, big man in the sky, something) for a specific sign within 15 minutes if something were to happen (I’m keeping it vague until later)

I got my sign, and in such a narrow specified time frame.

Please Speak Well of Me

This song is great, especially the part about wishing you could say you were sorry.  I don’t pretend to be perfect, and there have been a few people here and there to whom I want to apologize. If I got the chance to, I would. 

I’ve been away a year and a day
You recognize love after the fact
You did what you did and that was that

Don’t say words that you don’t mean
When I’m gone, please speak well of me

Looking back now
I only wish I had been kinder
Did I ever know love, did I ever know love?
And could I have been blinder?

Don’t hold back all your love for someday, for someday

I would say that I’m sorry if it would do any good
But to never regret means you have to forget
and I don’t think that I could”

For Anyone Who Wants It!

I’m beginning a new blog

This one is getting tedious and I’d like to shift my focus. I have a lot of updating to do (it’s bare bones as of now) but I’ll be working on it.

elokiddies asked: "What if I told you that I know you’re beautiful, and what if you believed it?" I was just wondering where you got the inspiration for the post since the whole thing was really great to read.

Oh, it was just a thought I had. It is to anyone who reads it :)

I was thinking the other morning, I look cute! Then weighed myself and saw I gained 3lbs of water weight. Then I realized, it isn’t my weight, it’s my confidence that makes me feel great :D

What if you believed it?

What if I told you that I know you’re beautiful, and what if you believed it?

Look at yourself in the mirror. YOU.  You’re beautiful.  Are you at your weight goal?  I don’t know, I haven’t the slightest.  I know you’re probably worried if your hair is in place, because maybe if I knew it wasn’t, I would take back what I said. Perhaps the last couple of weeks have been stressful and so you have more zits than you’ve had since you were a teen. 

What does it matter? You’re beautiful.  Your humanity and your kindness and your big heart are so overwhelmingly beautiful that it beams through like light under translucent paper.

You’ll lose those 40 or 4 pounds.  Your skin will get better. We all have amazing hair days once in a while.  My teeth sure as heck aren’t perfect. The shape of your nose came from one of your parents but hundreds of years of ancestry, so that’s pretty neat.  No, no one notices the imperfections that you’re using to prevent yourself form believing that you’re beautiful. 

Believe it. I wouldn’t say it if it weren’t true. 

I’ve never seen a person smile and thought them anything less than beautiful.

Residency?

I always assumed that to get a residency, you had to have a 4.0.  I have a 3.6 and so I was convinced that wasn’t a path I could even think about. 

Talking with my mentor this morning, it came up that if you have <3.0, you can still be considered, you just need to do something that sets you apart. 

This makes we wonder…what if residency IS a path for me?

So far, cardiology is the most fascinating subject I’ve taken. I’m taking a large animal and a small animal continued cardiology classes next semester.

Who knows?

Picture of Love
This is a photograph of my great uncle cherishing a picture of his wife.  Over 10 years ago, she was diagnosed with  Alzheimer&#8217;s.  She has deteriorated a lot since, but not nearly as quickly as is typical. 
I adore this picture but it&#8217;s also kind of haunting.  The blurriness is due to poor photo taking, but it still seems so artistic some how.  She looks like she&#8217;s still there but distorted. Only recognizable to those closest. 

Chills.

The Mute

Well, as a child I mostly spoke inside my head
I had conversations with the clouds, the dogs, the dead
And they thought my broken, that my tongue was coated lead
But I just couldn’t make my words make sense to them
If you only listen with your ears… I can’t get in

And I spent my evenings pullin’ stars out of the sky
And I’d arrange them on the lawn where I would lie
And in the wind I’d taste the dreams of distant lives
And I would dress myself up in them through the night
While my folks would sleep in separate beds… and wonder why

And through them days I was a ghost atop my chair
My dad considered me a cross he had to bear
And in my head I’d sing apologies and stare
As my mom would hang the clothes across the line
And she would try to keep the empty… from her eyes

So, then one afternoon I dressed myself alone
I packed my pillowcase with everything I owned
And in my head I said “goodbye,” then I was gone
And I set out on the heels of the unknown
So my folks could have a new life of their own
So that maybe I could find someone
Who could hear the only words that I’d known
