We're right here

Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path. – Shauna Niequist

Nothing in this life is half as important to me as them. Sometimes I get annoyed with myself because I say it so much, but it doesn't make it any less true. The funny thing is that people look at them and they see dogs and I see so much more. They gave me a purpose and they gave me opportunities to be happy, to do things, to live a better life, to travel, to love and to be loved. The first thing they teach you is how to tame them, but I am not their owner, we are roommates, we live in coexistence, we lead the same lives. It is the purest form of love and friendship. Others will say I overreact, that it is crazy, not normal, but I just found something inside them no one else sees and I would rather die than let that go. 

The most important thing they gave me is to show me that I am never lonely. Because there is a big difference between being alone and being lonely. And I never had a problem with being alone, because I am very surrounded and my life is a constant motion filled with people. But I struggled with being lonely, even when I wasn't alone, and with them I never have to feel lonely. Their touch is home. You'd have to be a fool not to see that.
