    just the way it is.



    i wish i had more answers. i wish i had my heart + guts on speed dial. today, im feeling lots of things. its funny when there is zero time to worry and think-- you dont worry and think--but when all of a sudden the wheels stop turning + the train stops running + your life comes to a screeching halt, imaginary worries + thoughts fill your mind and remind you that life is a series of questions + answers + guesses + failures + guts + reactions + rights + wrongs + ups + downs + boys + girls + tours + canceled tours + songs + sounds + smiles...


    i would be lying if i said i wasn't absolutely scared about my throat + absolutely bummed about canceling those shows. i would also be lying if i said i didnt somehow believe i was going to be okay. id be lying if i said i didnt somehow believe its all for a bigger reason i can't see yet. do you think the universe wants me to slow down? i mean i didnt stop for sixty days! i guess i'm not a super hero... bummed about that too. haha i guess i'm human + i get sad + scared + worried + anxious like the rest of 'em. what's funny here is by the time i stop typing i bet i feel better. i bet these feelings pass. they say feelings aren't facts + that they're temporary. gosh, thank goodness... cause today if feelings could kill, i'd be a goner.


    today i'm not gushing about a newspaper article. today i'm not asking for you to watch me on tv. today i'm just writing to you, listening to bon iver, wishing i didnt have to speak super loud + high pitched, wishing i had more things figured out, wishing i had someone to sing "i got you babe" at karaoke with, wishing i could eat chocolate + wishing my italian father could come over + give me an italian smack on the head because my life is wonderful + i'm having difficulty seeing that. my life, like yours, is filled with peaks + valleys + how very rockstar of me to have an EPIC valley to match my very EPIC peak. all it means is that i'm alive + im participating in life + when i make it to the other side of this... i'll be stronger.


    i wanna get rid of this crazy weight on my shoulders. i wanna let it go. are you with me? lets do it together. lets pick out that thing that's killing us today + think about giving it away to the universe. imagine handing it over to the cosmos. breathe it out... cause if something is weighing you down, it's keeping you from shining as bright as you can. right? ok let me know how it goes... mine just melted away..... 


    :)

    love you guys,
