This time of year always makes me so much more aware of what is around me and coming from within me. The weight of my relationships. The weight of my service to my family and the world. There is a line from my favourite movie that says "I love you. Not like they told you love is, and I didn't know this either, but love don't make things nice- it ruins everything. It breaks your heart. It makes things a mess. We aren't here to make things perfect. The snowflakes are perfect. The stars are perfect. Not us. Not us! We are here to ruin ourselves and to break our hearts and love the wrong people and 'die'. The storybooks are bullshit!"
What would you do for love? How has it touched your heart?
