"You’re not single because your standards are too high. Good for you for having standards. It’s not because you didn’t like that really, really good guy who wanted to take you on a date and you just weren’t feeling it. And it’s not because you like to wear pajama pants as soon as you get home and wash all the makeup off your face. You’re not single because you didn’t learn enough from the past or would rather chill on a Friday night with your blanket and a cold beer than shower, get ready, and go out. You’re not single because something is wrong with you.
You are single because you are single. It’s really as simple as that. You haven’t made the connection with another heart yet. You can get dolled up, dress cute, cut your hair, dye your hair, tweeze your eyebrows, put on lipstick and you may still. be. single. You can go out to a bar hoping to meet the love of your life and not find a damn one in the place attractive. And it’s going to remain that way until it’s time for you to find one. Stop hoping for it. Start living the life that you do have instead of wishing for things that you don’t have. There will come a time you’ll meet a boy and you’ll have to give up some of this single freedom you currently have. Start being more thankful. Start doing that now."

"No writing is wasted. Did you know that sourdough from San Francisco is leavened partly by a bacteria called lactobacillus sanfrancisensis? It is native to the soil there, and does not do well elsewhere. But any kitchen can become an ecosystem. If you bake a lot, your kitchen will become a happy home to wild yeasts, and all your bread will taste better. Even a failed loaf is not wasted. Likewise, cheese makers wash the dairy floor with whey. Tomato gardeners compost with rotten tomatoes. No writing is wasted: the words you can’t put in your book can wash the floor, live in the soil, lurk around in the air. They will make the next words better."

I like this.
Been watching How I Met Your Mother. LOVED this scene…and these lines…stolen right from that place in me that’s afraid to come out and say it.
Ted: Okay, I’m gonna say something out loud that I’ve been doing a pretty good job of not saying out loud lately… what you and Tony have… what I thought for a second that you and I had… what I know that Marshall and Lily have… I want that! I do. I keep waiting for it to happen and waiting for it to happen, and… I guess I’m just, uh… I’m tired of waiting. And that’s all I’m willing to say on that subject.
Stella: (…) I know that you’re tired of waiting and… you may have to wait a little while more, but… she’s on her way, Ted! And she’s getting here as fast as she can.
Ted: (smiling softly) Goodbye, Stella.
Stella: (near whisper) Goodbye, Ted.
I just was perusing some of the LBD pictures from the Streamys for old time’s sake when I happened to see a comment on one of the pictures, of me by myself, about my “crooked nose” that was pretty negative.
I’m not making this post so everyone will go tell that person to shut up or whatever. We…
Yes. This is so true!
I love her.
She donates so much she went from “billionaire” to “millionaire.”
MAD respect for that.
