“you may now kiss your bride!” our first kiss as wives 😍 absolute perfection! if you saw my post last night, you saw that we just found out our enneagram types. i’ve been reading all about our personalities, and i can’t get over how spot on it is. i’m a 2 and heather is an 8 (she says it makes sense, because together we make a perfect 10) i looked up what our types bring to a relationship, and gasped at how accurately it painted a picture of heather and i. here’s what it says about our relationship: “they easily play roles that the other needs and wants: the eight is practical and concerned with results, whereas twos are more people-oriented and more openly altruistic. they are both strong willed and like taking on responsibility, as long as they choose it themselves. eights often bask in the glow of the two's affection and adoration: twos truly appreciate the eight's strength and efforts—and see their often hidden self-sacrifice. both see each other's noble qualities and can be each other's staunchest supporters and admirers. their roles are also clearly delineated, so they do not get in each other's way. each runs different spheres of their lives and covers different bases (one plays the symbolic mommy the other the symbolic daddy and things are clear and balanced). these qualities make this couple powerful allies who complement each other's strengths, particularly the good effects they can have on others.” she’s truly my person! #shesmypearson .

this book’s reflection of gender through the eyes of a teen girl is the best i’ve read yet. rarely have i come across any form of media where a girl is masculine/butch presenting and she’s not the b**t of a joke. but in this novel, she’s the protagonist- pen, and she is one of my favorite protagonists i’ve ever read! her struggle with gender identity is so relatable! i don’t identify as masculine or a stud/butch, though as a lesbian the stuggle to identify with womanhood is real, as so much of it is focused on heterosexulity. when womanhood is centered on your exeperiences with men, where do we, as l******s fit in? pen’s exploration of gender is so pure and her journey as she falls for her first girl made my heart swell. she’s also one of the most badass ya protagonists ever! ❤️

i feel like the general consensus of this book was that it gave a lot of people anxiety, which i could completely understand. as someone who grew up as a (very gay) christian and didn’t have a good time, it was definiteny an experience™ to read about a protagnanist who is totally cool with going back in the closest for the sake of her pastor dad. as a teenager this book would definitely have triggered me with some of the general messiness regarding the protagonist’s,- jo’s- monologue about being g*y and being a christian. i felt like some of her thought processes on it should have gone a little deeper- her vagueness on the bible almost implied that homophobia against men is justified religiously. which was a yikes moment. to be fair, it’s really hard to write a g*y christian progognist who’s confortable with her religion, it’s obviously such a triggering topic 🤷🏽♀️ on the other hand, as an adult her comfort kind of made me miss being religious a little bit. overall, it was cute ya love story
i’m the type of person who will stop on the side of the road to pick up a stunned butterfly that flew into my windshield. i held this one for ten minutes while he slowly came to, and it was beautiful. and then he flew away.
i have been carrying a lot of guilt with me lately, but i try to put good into the universe where and when i can. i don’t think good acts cancel out hurtful ones, but i do think kindness and compassion can heal. it’s never okay to hurt someone intentionally, especially someone we love. but sometimes it’s not intentional, and some situations don’t have a ‘good guy’ and a ‘bad guy.’ sometimes the world isn’t black and white. sometimes it’s not even grey. sometimes it’s a million colors crying and laughing and blending and bleeding. sometimes it’s as messy as it is beautiful. sometimes betrayal isn’t actually betrayal. sometimes something must break for something else to grow. sometimes goodbyes are not endings. sometimes we are the breaker, sometimes we are the broken. sometimes the love hurts. sometimes the lonely burns a hole. sometimes the hole makes room for something new to grow and bloom. sometimes the hurt can pave the way for healing. sometimes healing can lead to a new and beautiful path that we couldn’t possibly foresee in the midst of said hurt. sometimes the universe has a plan for us even when we cannot feel it. sometimes, with time, we thank the universe for the ones who walked away, even when we wanted them to stay.
everyone deserves happiness. you, me, the butterflies.

Found our my enneagram type tonight! type 2 “twos are warm, emotional people who care a great deal about their personal relationships, devote an enormous amount of energy to them, and who expect to be appreciated for their efforts. they are practical people who thrive in the helping professions and who know how to make a home comfortable and inviting. helping others makes twos feel good about themselves; being needed makes them feel important; being selfless, makes twos feel virtuous. much of a two's self-image revolves around these issues, and any threat to that self-image is scarcely tolerated. twos are thoroughly convinced of their selflessness, and it is true that they are frequently genuinely helpful and concerned about others. it is equally true, however, that twos require appreciation; they need to be needed. their love is not entirely without ulterior motive.” are there any other type twos out there?! what are you?! if you haven’t taken the personality test, you can do so by going to https://www.eclecticenergies.com!
