I’m giving birth tomorrow (sort of)

Coming soon BM


I remember exactly how I felt waiting to go into theatre for my c-section… the birth of my first child. I was naturally terrified and utterly mad with nerves; in a few moments doctors would be slicing me open, while I was wide awake, and then yanking a crying, kicking, small human out of my uterus!


I was nervous that I might feel it. I was nervous to become a mother. I was nervous for the painf

“Here, take these." I held my hands open as she dropped something into my palms; succulent leaves. "Lay them on some soil. Give them a little bit of water in a spray bottle, not that much, and watch them grow." She closed my hand around the leaves. "We start small. A fine mist of water, a few good words to ourself, and we keep it up everyday. And one day, we want to believe wont believe what we've grown into.”
Jo Watson, Big Boned

“I'm just saying that your fears are stopping you from having the things in life that you want and deserve.”

“I feel awake when I’m with you, Poppy. You woke me up when I didn’t even know I was sleeping.”

“When pointing out the flaws in others, people always end up talking about themselves.”
Claire Chilton

“The boldness of asking deep questions may require unforeseen flexibility if we are to accept the answers.”
Brian Greene, The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions, and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory

“When someone is mean to me, I just make them a victim in my next book.”
Mary Higgins Clark

“There is a philosophy that says that if something is unobservable -- unobservable in principle -- it is not part of science. If there is no way to falsify or confirm a hypothesis, it belongs to the realm of metaphysical speculation, together with astrology and spiritualism. By that standard, most of the universe has no scientific reality -- it's just a figment of our imaginations.”
Leonard Susskind, The Black Hole War: My Battle with Stephen Hawking to Make the World Safe for Quantum Mechanics

“the three-dimensional world of ordinary experience—the universe filled with galaxies, stars, planets, houses, boulders, and people—is a hologram, an image of reality coded on a distant two-dimensional surface. This new law of physics, known as the Holographic Principle, asserts that everything inside a region of space can be described by bits of information restricted to the boundary.”
