Thankful #13: Just Keep Swimming

I am thankful for Fall. It is still sunny, but also full of beautiful rain and leaves.
It's like a transition. And sometimes the journey is just as good as the destination.
Or at least, we will never reach our goal if we don't work for it in the first place.

Advice to a Girl:
No one worth possessing

Can be quite possessed;
Lay that on your heart,
My young angry dear;
This truth, this hard and precious stone,
Lay it on your hot cheek,
Let it hide your tear.
Hold it like a crystal
When you are alone
And gaze in the depths of the icy stone.
Long, look long and you will be blessed:
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed.
