Princes & Frogs

Little words, big value. If there's one thing I learned in my years of dating and not-dating, it's that things are never as you expect them to be. You'll be pleasantly surprised and terribly disappointed and everything in between. But these opposite ends of the scale should not fluctuate often, and hopefully tend towards the happier end. It is hard to stay strong in times of weakness and loneliness, but it will all turn out in the end and you'll look back later and say, "That felt terrible at the time but now I can see that it led me to (insert amazing experience here). Such is the case with many broken hearts: there is a greater plan at work, led by a master planner. If you're starving, trash might seem like better than nothing, at least to get you by, but it always turns out to be poison, leaving you worse off than before. If you have a choice, be patient until it is blatantly obvious that the person in question will do anything to help you become the best version of yourself, even if that means sacrificing a life with you.

This message was creatively phrased by the band Superchic[k] in the following (and fitting) way:

You hate men is what you say and I understand how you feel that way
All girls dream of a fairy tale
But what you've got's like a used car salesman
Trying to conceal what's wrong behind a smile and the song
And I'm not saying that boys are not like that
But I think you should know 
That some of us will grow
Because. . . 

All princes start as frogs and all gentlemen as dogs
Just wait till its plain to see
What we're growing up to be
Cause Some frogs will still be frogs
And Some dogs will still be dogs
Some boys could become men
Just don't kiss us 'til then.

You found him is what you say
And we all want you to feel that way
But the frog you've got seems cute enough to kiss
And maybe frogs seem like that's all their is
But just because you haven't found your prince yet
Doesn't mean you're still not a princess
And what if if your prince comes riding in
While you're kissin' a frog what's he gonna think then
So look into his eyes
Are you a princess or a fly?

Time for a milestone

Time to begin again
Revaluate who I really am

I give everything I surrender
To whatever you're doing inside of me 
It feels like chaos somehow there's peace
It's hard to surrender to what I can't see
but I'm giving in to something heavenly

Time to face up
Clean this old house
Time to breathe in and let everything out
That I've wanted to say for so many years
