Take your time when picking the pedals off of your delicate little flower. Once they fall off, they are gone forever. So before each one becomes one of history, take a moment to really take in all of its beauty, for our flowers only have so many pedals.

Various Games I've Been In As Mercy

-The game where the enemy team focuses so hard on you, you get next to no healing done and your team blames you despite them not protecting you.

-The “multiple of any offense hero game” where every single person will chase you down, solo ult on you, etc. This game will result in hatred of any and all Mercy ships.

-The “this jerk was in the last match and kept chasing me down” match where the same thing happens as before and this player chases you into rooms.

-Multiple tanks game where everyone buffs on a hero and constantly watches out for you/ensures you don’t die. These are as rare as they sound. And when the entire team upvotes you it really does feel like a dream

-the “I’m done you can all heal yourself” game where you’re spiteful to the point of death.

Feel free to add any you’ve been in .

Take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all. You made it, another day. And you can make it one more. You’re doing just fine.

I helped myself.
wiped my own tears.
put balm over fresh wounds.
plastered parts of my heart that still were hurting.
gave myself time.
read books that soothed my soul.
heard music that calmed my nerves.
watched movies that made me smile.
bit by bit, piece by piece, I put
myself back together again.
and I gave myself a second chance
because I know that if I didn’t,

then no one else would.

Work hard. Play hard. But you know what else? Laugh hard. Love harder.
Don’t worry about ten years from now. Don’t worry about what happened a couple months back. All that matters is what’s happening in the present moment.

Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being.

Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being.

Never confuse your mistakes with your value as a human being.


You can make it.

A new year.
A year of healing broken hearts.
A year of meeting new people.
A year of new places and new faces.
A year of accepting what you can’t change.
A year of learning to love yourself better.

A year of happiness.

—  N.C. // we deserve it.

Do what makes you happy. Take care of yourself. Be carefree. We’re not going to live forever, and when you really think about it, it’s really not that long in the grand scheme of things. So live gracefully. Stop chasing towards material things and being someone that you’re not. Life is far too short to be anyone but yourself and to be doing anything that you’re not completely in love with.

An All-Day Healing Sun Ritual on the Anniversary of a Sad Occasion

You will need:

  • Four stone fruits (e.g., peaches or plums) in a bowl, turning soft
  • A bowl of water left overnight outdoors to catch the first light


At sunrise (on when you wake up), noon, sunset, and midnight (or when you go to bed).

The Spell:

Sprinkle a little light-infused water over the first fruit, saying, “I reach to new life, the past is gone. Yet on this day sad memories come.”

 Bury the first fruit, saying: “Rest in peace now.”

 Repeat the spell words and actions at noon with the second fruit and at sunset with the third.

 At bedtime, as you bury the fourth fruit, say: “The fruit decays quite naturally, yet in spite of bad memories, good times remain. For the rest I let go what no more can be.”
