no one belongs here more than you.

i found this passage from miranda july's book no one belongs here more than you on the blog positively present.  i started reading this book (which is actually a series of short stories) a while back, but never got into it.  i guess i didn't get to this part...

"do you have doubts about life?  are you unsure if it is worth the trouble?  look at the sky: that is for you.  look at each person's face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you.  and the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire beneath the ground: all these things are for you.  they are as much for you as they are for other people.  remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing." 

beautiful words, and an important thing to remember.  the world is yours... no one belongs here more than you.

have a lovely weekend, and don't forget to look at the sky.


xoxo,
lesley
