Whenever I come across a dilemma, I ask myself, what would Mariska Hargitay do?
This is how I live my life. This is also my philosophy on what I believe physical beauty is:
One of my methods of prayer is looking at the night sky, thinking about all the galaxies in the universe, and how quantum mechanics plays a part in this life, and listening to music like this:
If you were to put your ear to my chest, and listen to my heartbeat, it would sound like Yukimi Nagano.
I want to give people my music, which would be something similar to this
My YouTube Channel
Here are two of my Little Dragon covers:
(More Yukimi Nagano covers coming soon… YAY!!)
In 3:30–3:50 of this video, you can see what I believe my soul looks like.
“It doesn’t interest me what you do for a living,
I want to know what you ache for,
and if you dare to dream of meeting your heart’s longing.
It doesn’t interest me how old you are,
I want to know if you will risk looking like a fool
for your dreams,
for the adventure of being alive.
It doesn’t interest me what social status you hold,
I want to know if you have touched the center of your own sorrow,
if you have been opened by life’s betrayals,
or have become shriveled and closed,
from fear of further pain.
I want to know if you can sit with pain,
mine or your own,
without moving to hide it,
or fade it,
or fix it.
I want to know if you can be with joy,
mine or your own,
if you can dance without restraint,
and let the ecstasy fill you to the tips of your
fingers and toes,
without cautioning us to
and without dwelling on the limitations of being human.
It doesn’t interest me if the story you are telling me
I want to know if you can
to be true to yourself.
If you can bear the accusation of betrayal,
and not betray your own soul.
If you can be genuine,
and therefore trustworthy.
I want to know if you can see Beauty
even when it is not pretty,
And if you can source your own life,
from its presence.
I want to know if you can live with failure,
yours and mine,
and still stand on the edge,
and shout to the sky,
“Yes, I have hope!”
It doesn’t interest me,
to know where you live or how much money you have.
I want to know if you can get up,
after a night of grief and despair,
weary and bruised to the bone,
and do what needs to be done,
to care for those who need you.
It doesn’t interest me who you know,
or how you came to be here.
I want to know if you will stand
in the center of the fire
and not shrink back.
It doesn’t interest me where or what or with whom
you have studied.
I want to know what sustains you,
from the inside,
when all else falls away.
I want to know if you can be alone
and if you truly like the company you keep
in the empty moments.”
I am Jenna
I am a wife, a daughter, a sister, a mom to three furry children (Brewster, Mouser, and Harry), and a cancer survivor.
This video resonates deep within me, however, I do wish it was not a commercial though.
