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."

How To Deal With A Crush

How To Deal With A Crush

what are snails even trying to do

their best


Loving her will not
always be easy.

She will weave herself
into bad poetry some
nights to keep you
from seeing her without
her skin.

One day, you will
see her without
her skin.

She will pull on the
edges of herself until
she has come
completely unraveled
on the kitchen floor.

She does not need
help picking herself
back up, but the
company is nice every
once in a while.

One day, she will
show you what it
means to be made
of something so
easily pulled apart.

Some nights, she
will need herself more
than she needs you.

There are stars in
her eyes that burn like
hell if you bury yourself
against them for too
long, do not let this
stop you from seeing

She will not always
be easy to convince,
she will wake up each
morning wrapped
around the worry that
your heart stopped
beating for her over

She will love you
with everything she
has ever had.

Do not take her
away from herself.

westerners are obsessed with the idea of happiness as if it’s a constant state of being. happiness comes in moments. you dont “achieve” happiness. you experience it along with every other emotion on the spectrum. if you spend your life chasing this constructed idea of happiness you will never even be remotely content. work on being whole and feeling everything while increasing the happy moments. stop trying to be a “happy person.” just be a person.

"Compassion hurts. When you feel connected to everything, you also feel responsible for everything. And you cannot turn away. Your destiny is bound with the destinies of others. You must either learn to carry the Universe or be crushed by it. You must grow strong enough to love the world, yet empty enough to sit down at the same table with its worst horrors."
