I want …

  1. to never be a damsel, even in my deepest distress
  2. to forgive my past and forget yours
  3. to honour my instinct for the fight, not flight
  4. to never know my place
  5. to be good without god
  6. to never add guilt to my pleasures
  7. to be the one who says why not?
  8. to collect more words every day
  9. to always feel small when I look at the moon
  10. to play this game with wine and dice
  11. to never, ever settle down
  12. to see the glass full, and in my hand
  13. to be the last to fall asleep
  14. to love you because, and not despite
  15. to tell the truth – or a better version
  16. to reserve the right to change my mind
  17. to never consider my reputation
  18. to make mistakes, and make them well
  19. to dance whether or not you watch
  20. to be brave enough to let it go
  21. to lose my head over my heart
  22. to challenge what you call reason
  23. to never hold back ready tears
  24. to sink my teeth right in, and bite
  25. to show you just what women I can do …

I am only three things for sure - an Atheist, a Feminist, and a Writer - one who obsesses over the grand themes of love, memory and connection.

  1. I was going to use the word “manifesto” before I saw your reply to Joanne. I was going to say that this is a manifesto for a full, joyous life.
