Happy Holidaze!

I hope you all have an absolutely amazing holiday and my wish for you (and me) is that 2014 is filled with a billion times more laughter than tears and much more passion than despair. 

Reach out to a friend, or even a stranger, who you suspect is lonely. People don't always tell you when they are and it's not like that tacky sweater your granny gave you for Christmas--it isn't always be seen on the outside. Be kind to yourselves and one another and fill yourself with love even when, especially when, you feel like you can't bear it.

Think about sharing your fears and your dreams and the stuff that makes you feel like you may be a tad insane with someone. Just take the leap (hell, write to me if you don't want anyone to know, I promise you'll feel less crazy). If you made a mistake and trusted the wrong person, well, now you know. Whatever.

Do not allow anyone to dumb you down, do not allow anyone to stand on your neck and do not allow anyone to dismiss you. However, go out there and knock each person you meet on their ass with your humanity...someone will envy you for it and follow in kind. 

Let go of trying to say the perfect thing or wearing the perfect thing or making the perfect thing. Better yet, drop the word perfect. But make sure you are awesome today and even more awesome tomorrow. 

At the end of the day, we are all a little fucking nuts. Get over it.
