wednesday wisdom from zooey deschanel

You can't help but love Zooey Deschanel. She's so quirky, orginal, and adorable. I came across this quote from her and absolutely loved it. Enjoy!

Being tender and open is beautiful. As a woman, I feel continually shhh’ed. Too sensitive. Too mushy. Too wishy washy. Blah blah. Don’t let someone steal your tenderness. Don’t allow the coldness and fear of others to tarnish your perfectly vulnerable beating heart. Nothing is more powerful than allowing yourself to truly be affected by things. Whether it’s a song, a stranger, a mountain, a rain drop, a tea kettle, an article, a sentence, a footstep, feel it all – look around you. All of this is for you. Take it and have gratitude. Give it and feel love”. – Zooey Deschanel

  1. Yes, yes yes. I so agree. It's so easy to get caught up in the idea that you have to be strong and tough to make it in this world. But there's a time for strength and seriousness and there is also a time to be sensitive and mushy and even wishy washy. :)

    P.S. This also reminds me how crazy excited I am for the new season of New Girl. LOVE that show!
