     I have not always been as now—
The fever’d diadem on my brow
I claim’d and won surprisingly—
Ay—the same heritage hath given
Rome to the Caesar—this to me;
- Edgar Allan Poe

Life itself was like a book borrowed from the library— something that did not belong to me and was due to expire.

37 Beautifully Mine- Tara Lee
TW for sexual assault
Bishop is a badass. Brat is adorable. A man should never hit a woman. Callie agreed to it? You go girl. Ethan doesn't know! Bishop is right, it won't change who he is. The stuff about his dreams! Eric is crazy. Never anger the Beast. Wait, you boys? Callie shouldn't be put through this. Why would you do that Bishop. Poor Callie. You needed her to what? Reality check? Did he really do that! Ethan is a good man. Her father what! Jacob did not. Why does she always think badly of herself. Damn girl! Weak? This whole family dynamic is insane. This was wrapped up well.
Do you like reviews done this way since it's different from others or would you just like a summary?

A Postcard
To the man I love, to my future. The first time I felt your presence, I began joining the dots in the sky, wondering when our stars would align.
I often think of where you are and if you’re happy. Are you in love? I hope she is gentle. I know you and I are the same in that way—we bruise a little more easily than most. You see, our souls were made in the same breath.
I know I’m running late—I’m sorry. Things haven’t worked out the way I planned. But believe me when I tell you I am on my way.
Until then, think of me, dream of me, and I will do the same. One day I will learn your name, and I will write it somewhere on this page. And we will realize that we have known each other all along.
- Lang Leav, The Universe of Us

Then sit at no man’s feet. Is it not astonishing that the price generally put upon any article by the world is that which the owner puts upon it? And that this is especially true of one’s own self?
Anthony Trollope, Phineas Finn

11/05/21 // I don’t know If it’s just me but I am realising that I don’t value friendships that offer me a temporary energy. I want to vibe & connect with those who I know will be with me for the rest of my life. I want family, to me friendships feel short-lived.
I’ve lived my with temporary intentions and I feel this is what it has gifted me with. Temporary friends and I am not here for it anymore.
Anybody else feel this way?

✨Week Ahead Reading✨
Energy of the Week
Knight of Swords
How can you slow down this week? You'll never get everything checked off your list, it's likely ever-growing, and you'll only end up frustrated if that's your goal. Take a breath and figure out what's most important, what needs to happen right now, and take things one step at a time. The Taurus New Moon feels like it's coming through in this card, remember that rest is just important as movement. Indulge a bit over the next few days and don't feel guilty about it.
Potential of the Week
Two of Wands
If you can get focused this week and not let unnecessary distractions pull you away from the work you "actually" need to be doing, you might find you work your ways towards a breakthrough. The two is about taking a new idea and expanding on it, implementing it, and you need focus to do that. Delegate away any distractions or tasks that aren't a top priority right now.

Quote
Peace of mind produces right values, right values produce right thoughts. Right thoughts produce right actions and right actions produce work which will be a material reflection for others to see of the serenity at the center of it all.
