It’s All Yours …

“I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest. If I love you at 5AM, I’d damn well rather that you know I felt it. If I love you two hours later, I’ll tell you then too. Listen, I won’t wait double the time it takes for you to text me back because I don’t want to. I don’t care enough to be patient with you. I’m happy, you made me feel that way, don’t you want to know? So that’s how it’s going to be. I’m going to leave myself as open as a church door. And I’m going to wake you up before the crack of dawn to tell you that I’m fucking joyful, no pretending, not from me, not ever. Would you like some coffee, would you please kiss me? Here, these are my hands, this is my mouth, it is all yours.”

~ Azra T. “Don’t Wait Three Days to Text First”



“If our stubborn minds would absorb that we are accepted by God because of Jesus Christ, our chances and subsequent behaviours would be profoundly affected.
Think about the impact of this for a moment. What is a bigger contributor to consistent defeat than insecurity? How many foolish decisions does it motivate? I made some of my worst choices in an attempt to be accepted.
In our search for the root of our self-destructive tendencies, all we have to do is follow the stem of insecurities. But no matter how long we’ve been in bondage to it, we don’t have to stay that way.”
