'You should be angry. You must not be bitter. Bitterness is like cancer. It eats upon the host. It doesn’t do anything to the object of its displeasure. So use that anger. You write it. You paint it. You dance it. You march it. You vote it. You do everything about it. You talk it. Never stop talking it.'

Maya Angelou in a 2006 talk with Dave Chappelle on the Sundance Channel’s Iconoclasts series.

Here’s video.

I am not an easy person to love. Some days I will whisper how beautiful you are while planting gentle kisses all over your body. You will giggle and try to fight me off and in that moment my heart will have never felt so light.

But other days when my mind is a storm cloud threatening to explode, I will be a bundle of emotions that I cannot quite keep contained. I will be cold, distant, and you will look at me like I am not the same person you fell in love with.

I am a broken light switch. My moods flicker without anyone flipping me on and off. I wake up each morning and wonder which me you will encounter that day. I always hope it is the one who makes you want to stick around.

I am not easy to love. But what I need you to understand is that whether there is a war raging inside of my mind or I am the kind person that you adore, I will always love you.

I will love you in the morning. I will love you when you cry. I will love you when I am angry. I will love you when you’re being stubborn. I will love you when I don’t even love myself. I will love you.

I know that there will be days when you want to give up on me but I am asking you, please don’t. You see, you are the only one who has been able to settle the storm inside of me before I even realize it is surfacing.

I am not easy to love but I promise that I will always put up a fight. And I will love you no matter which me my light switch flips on that day.

'Conversations at breakfast'

Sophie: Sophie wants some tea!! With milk! And honey!
Me: okay I’ll make you some
Sophie: Mama will not make it in the microwave.
Me: No I won’t, I will make it in the tea kettle!
Sophie: Sometimes mama puts her tea in the microwave! Sometimes she puts it in the tea kettle!
Me: that’s right! Sometimes it gets cold and I warm it up in the microwave. You are such a smart girl.
Sophie: Sophie is not a smart girl. I am a little pig eatin some slop.

And then she proceeded to eat her oatmeal, almond milk, chick pea mixture and make pig noises at me

Texts I sent my mom last night when Sophie was being extra hilarious. 
She went to our friends sons Spencer’s first birthday party three weeks ago now  and still is talking about it every day. She played with a bunch of little kids but her favorite was the oldest, a 6 year old called Bella Rose. She always asks “The big girl.. her name was??” and after I remind her she starts calling a toy, an imaginary friend, or herself Bella Rose. It’s so funny. I honestly don’t think she has any idea my name is Sheila Rose (although she does know my first name is Sheila.. She told me one time) but now because of Bella Rose everyone is ____ Rose.
When Sophie sees a picture of herself as a baby she says “Sophie! With no hair!” #sophiesays #sophiebelle #timehop #tbt #vscocam #vscokids
