Words That Soothe The Soul

Blessed be the longing that brought you here
and quickens your soul with wonder.

This poem by John O’Donohue, as featured on Julies blog.

Every day I play the role of a beggar. I look to the charity of others, seemingly wanting something for nothing to feed my ego and the overwhelming need to belong. Every day I play the role of a hooker. I try to see the words, ideas and actions I think might make me desirable to others, often against my own better judgment, in order to get the emotional validation I need to survive.

These words by Tim Huff, as featured on Jonnys blog.
