Favorite Quote:
No, heaven's not a place that you go when you die
It's that moment in life when you touch her and you feel alive
So live for the moment
And take this advice, live by every word
Love's completely real, so forget anything that you've heard
And live for the moment now


I used to be a seed.






























I was warm and safe and covered
























The dirt smelled like sunshine and fresh air




















Things I would covet
I used to be a seashell




























Soft and smooth and hidden in sand

























I was protected from danger


























With pebbles and ocean waves
Now I am better.
I am an August breeze










Carrying away paper airplanes and baby birds







Flying wherever I choose
I have gone from a seed to a sunflower








Standing proud and tall











Greedily soaking in light and oxygen
I have gone from wishing, and













hoping, and












asking, and












wanting,
To taking, and













being, and














telling, and












absolutely loving the way I am.
I used to be a seed.
