If you are humble nothing will touch you, neither praise nor disgrace, because you know what you are.

You know it’s summer when…
The (500) Days of Summer attitude of “He wants you so bad” seems attractive to some women and men, especially younger ones, but I would encourage anyone who has a crush on my character to watch it again and examine how selfish he is. He develops a mildly delusional obsession over a girl onto whom he projects all these fantasies. He thinks she’ll give his life meaning because he doesn’t care about much else going on in his life. A lot of boys and girls think their lives will have meaning if they find a partner who wants nothing else in life but them. That’s not healthy. That’s falling in love with the idea of a person, not the actual person.

Evening light on Mt. Hood.
When someone says, “I haven’t felt God in a long time. I feel like He is gone. He left me.” I would just tell them, “He said He would never leave you nor forsake you. He is as close as the mention of His name. Just believe that. You don’t need to feel Him to know He is with you. Just believe Him. Don’t make God a feeling. He is not a feeling. He’s Spirit and Truth, and He lives in you.”

Poem written by an 11 year old Afghan girl 

This poem was recorded in a NYT magazine article about female underground poetry groups in Afghanistan. An amazing article about the ways in which women are using a traditional two line poetry form to express their resistance to male oppression, their feelings about love (considered blasphemous).
