I realize that I'm probably living some of the sweetest days of my life right now and I don't want to forget any of it. πŸ‘¦πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸŒΈπŸ’›#kissesfrombub #kicksfromsis

I'm incredibly sensitive. Always have been, always will. But still at the age of 29, I find myself apologizing for it. As if I should be ashamed. When I cry to my husband about whatever is on my heart, I always end up saying, "I don't know why I'm crying about this." But I do know why I cry. I cry because I feel. I cry because I hurt. I cry because I care. And I need to stop thinking that this is a flaw in my personality. Because it's not. This morning I remembered a quote that I stumbled upon a few years ago, so I looked it up and wanted to share it for anyone who feels as deeply as I do and is tired of apologizing for it. "Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy-washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all–look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love." βœ¨πŸŒΈπŸƒ
