A power in the breakage.

Why?

When one is complete, one isn’t living.

This is a fractured world and nothing we can do can change that.

Life breaks up when we live it.

Everytime we reach out in love we risk a part of us.

I’m beautifully broken, perfectly imperfect, beautiful in my flaws. All together I am a beautiful disaster. Unknown

I love this about life, how loving costs us.

How opening our hearts is a risk.

A crazy fantastic risk.

The fastest, scariest roller coaster.

Heart pounding with adrenaline.

I am alive

“Finding beauty in a broken world is creating beauty in the world we find.”
