Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold

Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Face it―nobody cares.
But so what? Their apathy doesn't diminish your worth. Learn from it. Make it your job to care for those around you so they don't feel like nobody cares.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“I will admit you are the finest if not the loveliest rose in the garden. But you see, my dear, I was looking for a sunflower.”

Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“I don’t think of you as a typical beauty. I never once did.

To me your hair mimics asphalt more than the lustrous feathers of ravens. Comparing your eyes to heavenly lights seems a stretch when they are the common color of dirt. I can’t imagine you as a tall, pole-slender image of models; your God-given shape is the exact opposite.

But I never cared about those pointless things anyway.
What good have such trivial attributes ever done the world?

When I look at you, I see you—or in other words, all of you that really matters. I see a kind heart and compassionate arms. I see a patient, gentle spirit abounding with love towards all of God’s creatures. I see the perfect blend of humility and strength of character. I see a wise intellect as well as an endearing sense of humor. I see all the qualities that make you the person I love, regardless of the bodily package you’re wrapped up in.

So forgive me if I don’t think you’re beautiful, because I find you to be far superior to that worthless and pointless nonsense the world calls beauty.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“When you delete 'impossible' from your thinking, you give yourself permission to imagine, to believe, to try, and to accomplish phenomenal things.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“I think one of the biggest reasons people have difficulty believing in God is because they don't understand Him.  You often hear doubting comments like 'if there is a God then why this and why that?' and 'how could He allow...?' Perhaps if people were to invest true, sincere effort getting to know Him, they would discover a mindful Father who is there every step of the way through trials and tribulations that test and mold his children for a higher purpose.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Lavender lilies all dotted with spots.
Sun-yellow daffodils clustered in pots.
Blue morning-glories climb trellises high.
Powder-white asters like stars in the sky.
Thick, pink peonies unfold in the sun.
Winter adieu now that spring has begun.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“I am accountable for every lie that I tell, but I am also accountable for the effects of every harsh truth I deliver.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“The Christmas spirit will elude you
'til a selfless love consumes you
and the joy of giving moves you.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Not everyone will like you or take the time to understand you. Some people lack the capacity. Don’t worry; it’s okay. Their acceptance or rejection doesn’t change your worth one bit. Hold your head up and live your life regardless, knowing not everyone is worthy of you.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“On Hallows Eve, we witches meet
to broil and bubble tasty treats
like goblin thumbs with venom dip,
crisp bat wings, and fried fingertips.

We bake the loudest cackle crunch,
and brew the thickest quagmire punch.
Delicious are the rotting flies
when sprinkled over spider pies.

And, my oh my, the ogre brains
all scrambled up with wolf remains!
But what I love the most, it’s true,
are festered boils mixed in a stew.

They cook up oh so tenderly.
It goes quite well with mugwort tea.
So don’t be shy; the cauldron’s hot.
Jump in! We witches eat a lot!”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“I won't lie—I don't care.
And you should quit trying to deceive yourself because I can tell by the way you show no desire to do anything but complain about the issue that you don't honestly care either.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Friends make everything easier. If you want to succeed at a challenge, involve your friends. They have an amazing capacity to lighten physical, emotional, and mental burdens by simply being there.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Don't ever quit pretending.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold

“I never realized how literally we battle demons. Often alone. It is a relentless skirmish with vicious wraith-monsters devouring us from within. We Fight. And resist for a time. Ultimately, desperation forces a cry for help. But where oh where are the valiant knights? When did they die off?”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“A timid act may be more bold
than one would first assume,
For whispered truth is braver,
than to silently resume.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“My stomach rumbles.
Plates of cookies, cake, and fudge.
Christmastime is here.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Gingerbread houses
with gumdrops and peppermint
and marshmallow snow.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“The Christmas spirit
whispers softly in my ear
to be of good cheer.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold

Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Real, true, key success is honestly liking yourself.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Sometimes you have to hug yourself and squeeze your own shoulder and be thankful it is humanly possible.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“Sometimes, I live an entire life in a daydream.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“I look in the mirror and see myself,
and yet I really don’t.
Only an image is perceived,
not things I will or things I won’t.

Ideas in my mind I cannot see.
No glimpse of how I feel.
Shreds of emotion shape my gaze,
but depth, the mirror will not reveal.

I see my reflection colored in,
my hair, my skin, my eyes.
Hues in my heart and shades of thought
remain unlit by fire or skies.

I smile at the mirror and watch it grin,
hasty to copy me,
but who I am ‘twill never know.
Mirrors don’t reflect identities.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
“One of the most troubling facts I have had to accept is that people are not all angel or all devil. They are both good and awful to varying degrees and in varying circumstances. On any given day, dependent upon the situation, you will be confronted by either the devil of a person or the angel of the same person or a curious mix of both. This means you can, and most likely will, love and hate the same individual alternately throughout your life. This truth I find painfully heartbreaking.”
Richelle E. Goodrich, Being Bold
