acceptance is a small, quiet room

"most things will be okay eventually, but not everything will be.  sometimes you'll put up a good fight and lose.  sometimes you'll hold on really hard and realize there is no choice but to let go.  acceptance is a small, quiet room."

to be a doll

"it is an anxious, sometimes dangerous thing to be a doll.
dolls cannot choose; they can only be chosen;
they cannot 'do'; they can only be done by."

who you really are

"there are two approaches to going to a party.
one approach is to try to make yourself into someone you're not.
the other approach is the one i'm trying to use: instead of trying to be someone you're not, you can simply try to emphasize who you really are."

rise above?

"...oh, mirror in the sky, what is love?
can the child within my heart rise above?
can i sail through the changing ocean tides?
can i handle the seasons of my life?..."

"you can dance in the storm.  don't wait for the rain to be over because it might take too long.  you can do it now.  wherever you are, right now, you can start, right now; this very moment."
