tenderness

this is always one of my favorite quotes that pops up on pinterest every now and then, and i just thought it deserved to be shared one more time, especially since it goes along so well with my 1,000 gifts i’m working on :)

“Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shh’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.” – Zooey Deschanel¬†

I always knew she was a smart girl. Happy Monday :)
