i am a lover of light + laughter + life + music + story + so much more. i am a daughter to two strong, merciful people who celebrate 25 years of marriage, this month. i am a sister to three incredible kids who show me how to be brave, every day. i am a friend to rad people (near + far + farther) who choose to love me, even when i don’t send letters on time. i have hopes + dreams + fears + doubts. i pray the light outshines the heaviness in my heart. i am a story still going..one deeply affected by the work + words of @jamietworkowski + the @twloha team, since 2006 (the myspace days). jamie said these words to me + i pass them on to you.. “you matter very much.” my name is heather + no one else can play my part. //

”..because perhaps it’s possible to change. perhaps it’s possible to start again. perhaps it’s possible for things to be new. we know that change takes more than a moment, + we aren’t saying it will be easy, but we’re saying that it’s worth it. this life. this night. your story. your pain. your hope. it matters. all of it matters. you’re loved. you matter to this world + you matter to the people who love you. so stay. please stay. no one else can play your part.”
- jamie tworkowski

"..dream big, follow those dreams. nothing worth accomplishing is going to be achieved by quitting when what you have burns to the ground, nothing worth accomplishing is going to be achieved by jumping ship when the waters get rough. we all have the ability to dream, it’s up to us what comes next."
