There is something that I need to share with you and I want…no, I NEED you to listen, okay?
This applies primarily to those pursuing endeavors of a creative nature but really, you know what? You can apply this to just about any and every aspect of your life so long as you’re attempting to expand your horizons.
So this is me, trying to help you. This is me telling you that I know exactly what you’re going through.
This is me, telling you with all of the blood and fiber of my being that you are not alone and so long as you refuse to give up, it’s okay.
Just about everyone we know has gone through it, are going through it or will go through it.
There are no shortcuts, no secret paths through the brush. The only way out is through to the other side and I need, NEED you to know that you’re not alone. That we’re all in this together and that we’re all HERE for you.
At the end of the day, all we have is each other. So keep it in mind, in the dark teatimes of your soul when it seems all hope is lost and you question why you’re bothering to do what you do.
We all understand.
You’re not alone.

So don’t you guys love how I deftly managed to switch the topic from what I was talking about to the nature of love?
Moving on, Patrick Rothfuss’s blog has been a source of neverending wonder to me and never more so than recently when he put up a post on Valentine’s day about the nature of love.
If you’ve ever loved or thought about the nature of love before, I think you owe it to yourself to take a look at it.
The post hugged my freaking heart and I didn’t even know that was possible.
So, do yourself a favor. Read this post then go and find the people you love most in the world and give them a hug. Tell them that you love them.
Because I’m sure we can agree that the world could use a few more hugs these days.
