Being Tender and Open

“Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually
shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let
someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to
tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than
allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a
stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a
footstep… feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and
have gratitude. Give it and feel love.”

— Zooey Deschanel
