today i like the smell of vanilla and the taste of raspberries. today i’m not trying too hard. today i’m taking comfort in the smallest things. driving down an empty road with the windows open. wearing light wash jeans that i wore when i moved away from home. sometimes i think fixing the problem means taking big steps and making big changes. today it isn’t that. today it’s appreciating the good moments. today it’s not letting the bad soak through and spoil the good.

today it’s running through a yard of freshly cut grass in bare feet and loving every second of it.

Witch Tip

Once you get rid of the line between magic and mundane, coming up with ideas is much less of a challenge. There is no “normal” you and “witchy” you. It’s all a conglomerate that creates the way you experience life as a whole.

I am so afraid that I am going to waste so much of my life being sad when I should be living. And not just living, but living vibrantly and loudly. I want to read more, travel more, learn more and talk to more people without feeling held back by the confines of my body. I no longer want to feel like I am drowning, sinking, falling or being swallowed up whole by something monstrous. I want to feel alive, lovely and brilliant, even for a moment

i love the part of growth that allows you to look back on a previous period of your life and recognize that parts of it were unhealthy. something that felt so normal wasn’t in hindsight. you’re not supposed to feel that tired all the time. you’re not supposed to be treated like that.

Virgo: The really bumpin’ music that starts playing right after Veronica says “That stuff will kill her.”

you know all those times someone when someone helped you or made you smile and you didn’t say anything? you’ve been that for other people. you’ve made someone smile. you’ve brightened someone’s day without realizing it. you do it all the time. you matter in ways you don’t even know.

i’m impatient when it comes to healing. something happens and days later i feel like i should be over it. i want bypass all the messy parts, all the days that feel like a step back. i want to blink and have it all be over. i think i’m scared of confronting my own hurt. i think i’m scared of discovering how deep it runs. but healing is so much about sitting down with yourself and asking where it hurts and why it hurts. getting back to its roots. healing is so much about actively saying again and again, i want to heal from this. i want to move past this.
