The Broken Woman Ifestus


  1. Remember that you were born in the sky: you don’t have veins, you have constellations; you don’t have blood, you have moonshine; you don’t have lungs, you have clouds; you don’t have a brain, you have a nebula; you don’t have a heart, you have an aurora.
  2. Study The Universe. Get a Spinster of Hearts. Get a Mistress in Compassion and Dignity.
  3. Your brain is overworked and underpaid, and your heart is a fucked up little rainbow punching bag. But your gut is your guru and you should shut up and listen because it knows even more than your earth mother.
  4. Just because some people are simple as arithmetic, doesn’t mean you should pretend you’re not more like chaos theory.
  5. Stop forgetting that you are loved. Keep trying to love yourself; you’ll get there one day.
  6. THERE IS NO NEED TO BE FUCKING AGGRESSIVE. You do not need to bark to be heard. Instead, be the sound that leaves make in the wind. Only poets will hear you. This is okay.
  7. When your heart breaks, don’t cut yourself on the pieces. Use them to make a stained-glass collage of your acquired compassion, of your courage, of your capacity for pain.
  8. Do not be afraid to break. Never stop breaking. The cracks are how the light shines through.
  9. Let go of the need to know. You will know when it’s time to know. Never before.
  10. Smoke if you got ‘em. Let go if you don’t.
  11. Pro tip for life: do epic shit and be fucking kind. The End.
