“You are here and it hurts and the world feels impossibly heavy and you are shouting bargains at the moon and there is nobody else to hear you
It is the darkest night you’ve ever lived through
You’ve lived through.
You’ve lived.

Do you hear me?
You live.
You make it.
You survive.”
Jeanette LeBlanc

“You are a battlefield. Never will there be a greater war than the one you hold with yourself.”
Courtney Peppernell, Pillow Thoughts

“Life is too short for games unless it’s a game of cards.
Don’t text back right away; if you like them, pretend you don’t; and don’t you dare say I love you first. Well screw all that.
I will text you back in three seconds; I will tell you that I like you; and if I love you, I’ll tell you every chance I get.
Life is unpredictable, and I’d rather play every card as honestly as I can than have a deck full of regrets and what-ifs.”
Courtney Peppernell, Pillow Thoughts

Courtney Peppernell
“I have never known what this sadness feels like when you cannot feel the sun or the air around you
And time they say will heal you
but even my own mother doesn't know what to do.
You promised to keep me safe
You knew what the others had done
and I fell for the sincerity in your face.
Maybe I deserved this
for trusting someone who could manipulate so easily
Maybe I deserved this
for not listening when mother knows best.
But all I was trying to do
was show you that even a monster can be loved.”
Courtney Peppernell, Pillow Thoughts

Jeanette LeBlanc
“Here you are.
Still standing. Fierce with the reality of love and loss. Wearing the truth of our hearts on your tattered sleeves. And yes, this one very nearly took you out. And yes, there were days when the darkness was heavy and the climb out of that rabbit hole required you to mine your depths for strength you didn’t even know you had.

But here you are.
Broken open by hope. Cracked wide by loss. Full of longing and grief and the burn of that phoenix fire. Warrior painted with ashes. Embers from the blaze still clinging to your newborn skin, leaving you forever marked with scars of rebirth.

And just look at you. Heart broken but still beating. Arms empty but still open. Face raised to the sky and giving thanks for the light, even when it hurts your eyes.

My god, you are beautiful.”
Jeanette LeBlanc
