today i’m going over a Bach piece to perform in September and then I’m meeting with my accompanist to rehearse for tomorrow’s masterclasses and then tomorrow I’m singing for masterclasses all day so the voice faculty can watch how perspective teachers work with me and i can suck all the knowledge out of them.  so excited. :)

Don’t try to “not lose your faith” Don’t try to resuscitate it or patch it together.

Let your expectations go. Let your faith go, along with everything you thought you knew.

Don’t be afraid.

If there’s a god, I have to believe that they’re more concerned with not losing you than you are with not losing what’s left of your faith.

If there’s anything out there at all, any Divine worth knowing, it won’t let you slip away.

— Micah J Murray (via godinthebrokenness)

  • date the kind of people who will still respect you when they no longer love you
  • do not waste your emotional capacities on people whose respect for you is conditional

this is terribly important

Is it August yet
