"You don’t cause me to run into
your arms after all our months apart.
You are so much more than the
excitement of such a thing.

You are what makes me instead
drop my bags
and my fears along with them
and wonder how I ever
survived all those months without you
in the first place.

You are my best piece of
everything, you are
not roller coaster emotions or
extremes of any kind except
safety.

You are stability.
Roots.
The one I want holding me.
The one I want to hold.
Home."

Ten hour drive to Florida with my roommate. She said she’d never listened to Switchfoot. So I subjected her to 4 straight hours of it. I have no regrets.

Phrases I hate.

friendly-neighborhood-loser:

"Boys will be boys."
“That’s not ladylike.”
“Be a man about it”
“Stop acting like a girl”
“You look like a girl, cut your hair”
“You’re a guy, get some muscle”

"I want to tell you I miss
you with no subtext. No guilt,
no anger, no expectation
that you’ll fix it. I don’t want
you to feel bad or to tell
me it will get better. This
is where we are meant to be
right now – me apart from you,
my hands a little empty and
my heart a little sad.
I just miss you.
I wanted you to know."

Every day you’re alive, you can change the world. It could be for the better or for the worse. It can be big waves or small waves. The very fact that you’re alive and breathing and walking outside, going to class, whatever it is, you’re changing the world with each footstep. There’s a lot of weight to that.

A very Happy Birthday to the worlds raddest bass player, h**r flipper, and truly one of my biggest role models; Mr. Tim Foreman!
Tim is truly one of the best guys out there, and I am truly completely grateful for how God has used him (and his bro.. I think his name is Jon..) to make such a huge impact on my life. 
Thanks for everything, Tim. I hope you have the most wonderful day!

"If you feel too much, there’s still a place for you here.

If you feel too much, don’t go.

If this world is too painful, stop and rest.

It’s okay to stop and rest.

If you need a break, it’s okay to say you need a break.

This life - it’s not a contest, not a race, not a performance, not a thing that you win.

It’s okay to slow down.

You are here for more than grades, more than a job, more than a promotion, more than keeping up, more than getting by.

This life is not about status or opinion or appearance.

You don’t have to fake it.

You do not have to fake it.

Other people feel this way too.

If your heart is broken, it’s okay to say your heart is broken.

If you feel stuck, it’s okay to say you feel stuck.

If you can’t let go, it’s okay to say you can’t let go.

You are not alone in these places.

Other people feel how you feel.

You are more than just your pain. You are more than wounds, more than drugs, more than death and silence.

There is still some time to be surprised.

There is still some time to ask for help.

There is still some time to start again.

There is still some time for love to find you.

It’s not too late.

You’re not alone.

It’s okay - whatever you need and however long it takes - it’s okay.

It’s okay.

If you feel too much, there’s still a place for you here.

If you feel too much, don’t go.

There is still some time.

"This is a song about the end of our experience on this planet, and the beginning of the next. C.S. Lewis says that if I find in myself a longing for something other than anything that this world can provide, then perhaps I was made for another life. Another place. Where every tear is wiped away, and the wrongs are made right. This is a song called Where I Belong."
