I got that blazer years ago from Target. They had it in gray and tan. I bought it in blue and tan. The tan one never fit me well and I donated it to a thrift store sometime back.

I run across them at Goodwill every now and again. Happy hunting friend.

We are important.
We are valuable.
We are resilient.

We are Beautiful
We are Loving
We are Knowledgeable.

And enough of us don’t know it.
Pass on positive affirmations.
Let’s stop criticizing each other’s personal choices.
Let’s let each other live.

To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless,—it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. The alternative to tragedy, or at least to the risk of tragedy, is damnation. The only place outside of Heaven where you can be perfectly safe from the perturbations of love is Hell.
