OMFG read this. I love this woman, who’s the closest thing to a mentor I’ve ever had (checking in on the things she writes on her Facebook wall alone inspires me to no end!). Pauline writes:
Many come close, yet few dare, so boldly to live without judgement, to give without expecting, and to love for no reason. I know this because I have come across so many, who interpret generosity as having an ulterior motive. Who react to compliments with suspicion. Who respond to offers of abundant opportunity with fear and derision. I have come across so many, who are consumed by their limiting beliefs and what others may think of them, that they are too afraid to explore that which is outside of the mundane matrix that they have trapped themselves in.
I have learned that there are more Sleepwalkers out there, than there are those who are Awake.
My religion is love. Nothing more. Nothing less. And I guess that’s why I fucking thrive when I hang with those who are weird, who are random, who are not afraid to be themselves. People who are full of love, generosity, authenticity, courage and presence.
You can’t do anything about the length of your life, but you can certainly do something about it’s width and it’s depth.
And sincerely, to all the naysayers who have had something smart, derogatory or sarcastic to say about the way I live my life and the way I speak my mind…. I say to you… Hey, it’s okay if you don’t get it. I wish you nothing but love, but I also choose to no longer waste my time with you. XP
