Mare. 21. NY

Always laughing and being grateful. Only focusing on the important things and keeping track of all these moments. I'm finding peace with myself, and others. Nature, good music, photography, staying active (biking, heavy lifting, HIIT) Paleo/clean eating and humorous, intellectually stimulating people = what i dig.

"I want to live simply. I want to sit by the window when it rains and read books I’ll never be tested on. I want to paint because I want to, not because I’ve got something to prove. I want to listen to my body, fall asleep when the moon is high and wake up slowly, with no place to rush off to. I want not to be governed by money or clocks or any of the artificial restraints that humanity imposes on itself. I just want to be, boundless and infinite."
