looking back at your life

6

“Live your life like you’re 80 looking back on your teenager years. You know if your dad calls you at eight in the morning and asks if you want to go out for breakfast. As a teenager you’re like no, I want to sleep. But as an eighty year old looking back you have that breakfast with your dad. It just little things like that, that helped me when I was a teenager in terms of making choices you won’t regret.”

Happy 28th Birthday, @taylorswift !  I hope you have a wonderful day and an amazing life. I love you

Someday you’re gonna look back on this moment of your life as such a sweet time of grieving. You’ll see that you were in mourning and your heart was broken, but your life was changing…

“"Wake up to the sunlight with your windows open. Don’t hold in your anger or leave things unspoken. Wear your red dress, use your good dishes, make a big mess & make lots of wishes. Have what you want, but want what you have. Don’t spend your life looking back.”

1. The friends you have at the beginning of the year can completely change by the end of it. People change, and if they aren’t improving your life in some way, it’s okay to drop them.

2. Take many pictures. Don’t let it take over your life, though. You don’t want to look back and see that you only captured your memories with your camera lens and not within your mind and heart.

3. Find your safe place. Whether it be in the arms of a certain person or on the balcony of Barnes and Nobles with a cup of soup, find it and don’t let it go. You can have more than one safe place.

4. Be nice to everyone. You honestly don’t know what skeletons people are hiding in their closets. Everyone has their skeleton. Every person on this earth has something in their life or past worth collapsing on the ground in uncontrollable sobs over.

5. Reading is so important. Highlight the things that you read that you find intriguing. Read a lot, it can only do good things for you.

6. Writing always helps.

7. The girl with anxiety has the deepest thoughts. The autistic boy has the kindest heart, and the schizophrenic has the ability to put a smile on your face in seconds. Do not judge character based on a mental illness.

8. Music has an indescribable ability to connect and heal. Let it do its thing.

9. Her prettiness doesn’t make your prettiness any less pretty.

10. Getting close and letting someone in is scary as hell. You know what else it is? Worth it.

11. The minute you feel your happiness being dictated by someone else, take a break from them.

12. Adventuring is a must. Sunsets always help the soul, showing that endings can be as beautiful as beginnings.

13. Spend more time with your parents doing things they enjoy. Later in life, you’ll be wishing you’d spent more time with them than on your Netflix account.

14. Home is not always a place, but whatever you love with your whole heart. I have many homes, and it’s okay if one home doesn’t feel like home anymore.

15. Making someone smile and feel genuinely happy has the ability to warm your heart from the inside out. No matter how much pain someone is going through, you made them forget about it for a few seconds. Isn’t that something?

16. Feel everything and let it hurt, but don’t go back to what broke you.

17. Don’t let fear hold you back from what you want. The view from the other side is spectacular.

18. Tell people how you feel. Even if you’re scared it’ll burn your life to the ground. You say it loud.

19. You find the most extraordinary things in the most ordinary places.

20. Swollen lips and sweaty “I want you’s” can make you feel again, but I don’t want to feel anything if it means having to sit there feeling like the wind is constantly being knocked out of me when he stops calling back.

21. Sometimes the way you think of someone isn’t the way they actually are.

22. Never underestimate the amount of joy the holiday season can bring you. Try and find ways to feel that way all year long.

23. Timing is never going to be perfect; if you care about something enough, you’ll make the time. It’s all about priorities.

24. If women used their words to build each other up instead of tearing each other down, our world would change drastically.

25. Recovery can take 2 weeks or 5 years. You aren’t any less of a person if it takes you longer to find a way to let go of what’s hurting your heart.

26. You only need yourself, but having people by your side trying to understand means a lot more than you might think.

27. You find your truest friends in your darkest hours.

28. You can feel the whole world in a month and nothing after 2 years. Time does not define love.

29. Always say yes to dessert.

30. Concerts make life worth living. So does yelling your favorite song along with your best friend in the car with your best friend with hands intertwined. These are things that show you that you don’t need to be on drugs to feel invincible.

31. So does kissing.

THE SIGNS AS DAN HOWELL QUOTES
  • Aries: “Sometimes, when you intensely dislike a person due to something, you just have to take comfort in the fact that, one day, they will be dead.”
  • Taurus: “It's so important to know you should be happy and proud of who you are.”
  • Gemini: "My only regrets are the moments when i doubted myself and took the safe route. Life is too short to waste time being unhappy."
  • Cancer: "I wonder how biology can explain the physical pain you feel in your chest when all you want to do is be with someone."
  • Leo: "You know, people ask me. They say 'Dan, three years later do you really want to be drawing cat whiskers on your face?' but they don't understand. The cat whiskers, they come from within."
  • Virgo: "I'm the living embodiment of 'it could be worse'."
  • Libra: "That’s why I’m here, I’m here for two reasons. To entertain you with stories of my life so , you know, you can find them entertaining. But then maybe compare them to your own lives and not feel so alone with the issues that you go with, go through..."
  • Scorpio: "And the other half of it is me kind of like articulating my own profound observations on the universe, which is really just an excuse to give myself a therapy. Apparently other people enjoy watching it too."
  • Sagittarius: "Actually believe in your potential. You spend all day and all night daydreaming and sometimes talking to yourself... out loud, which people can see by the way so maybe consider stopping that, about all the things you wish you could be and do, but instead you doubt yourself and say its impossible."
  • Capricorn: "This happens all the time with sports results, but — I shit you not — I once got a notification from the BBC News app saying that a character in a show I was watching had just died! I thought that news notifications are supposed to be for impending natural disasters, not for just ruining my bloody afternoon."
  • Aquarius: "You can't expect a kid to be smart enough to realize they can do what they want with their life before they've been pushed through the school system into having an average life.”
  • Pisces: "To me, the meaning of life is to be happy, it's to achieve happiness right now. It's to make sure you're happy in the future and that generally when you look back on your life you're like; yes, that was satisfactory."

When you look back onto your life, what do you see? Do the days seem to mould together? Does it feel like there’s been constant change? Has your life seemed to flash by ever so quickly? It’s true that time flies. If we aren’t careful, one day will turn into one year, and one year will become one decade.

Live mindfully. Treasure this moment.

A merm pretending to be a blue sea slug.

And one day you get hurt enough where you realize you don’t need anyone. You never had, but you fell in love, and the very idea of them made your heart light and your head dizzy. You blatantly fell in love with the idea of being loved and it became so cosmic that nothing else mattered. You put so much into that person that your ideal belief became a risk, all for the touch of light in your heart that made you feel cared about. That consumed you. And then you lost yourself in a pair of brown eyes and a heart that didn’t skip a beat at your touch. Then just like dominoes the preexisting thought of that person starts to fade and the way they provided a dose of self-sufficiency became nonexistent. And you became nothing to them. You were dropped like a shell into the ocean and you sank with the full force of gravity pulling you down. The water is over your head now and it’s hard to breathe. It just never made sense why they dropped you, now you’re on the ocean floor looking back up at your old life through a cloudy surface of salt water. The sand is filling you and the salt scratches your throat as you try to scream out for them to come back. But you’re a left behind shell among thousands. That is your first death.

You haven’t listened to Taylor Swift properly if you haven’t listened to her on the bus with your head against the window looking out calmly and reflecting on your life choices while holding back the tears thinking you’re in your own music video

How to get better at Astrology

1) Learn the difference between archetypes and their application in reality. Learn the difference between directly applicable knowledge and knowledge that needs to be adjusted and altered before applied. Not everything you will see and read will describe how something is in actual reality: Many things will describe archetypes and concepts that are part of the outcome in reality, but they’re not reality itself. Learn about the archetypes and concepts as well, what is written about them is to give a better understanding of them - not to describe a real person or occurance. 

2) Read actual books if you can afford them. There is a lot written in books that you won’t find online. Focus on books that are topic-specific, too - don’t buy 10 books that are all about the basics of astrology, buy one that is all on Saturn, one that is for family dynamics in astrology, one that is on synastry - don’t limit yourself to books that only scratch the surface of all topics but don’t go in-depths.

3) Learn about psychology, anthropology, philosophy, sociology, even history. Astrology is the practice of relating the stars and their positions to ourselves and our world. One needs to understand us and our world to do that.

4) Draw connections. Observe your surroundings, relate and apply real life experiences to astrology and vice versa. 

5) Question what you hear and read. Where is the person who wrote this coming from? Is this right, does this lack somewhere? Ask thought-provoking questions. Talk to others and listen to their ideas. Think things through and think further, don’t just passively absorb and accept everything you hear and read.

6) Don’t be too strict about it. You will read everything multiple times anyways. You will automatically learn more over time - don’t try to know everything within a week, let it be a journey. That being said, do read everything - not just what applies to you. Read about all aspects, all placements, all houses, all signs, and take notes.

7) Take a step back. Don’t let your life revolve around astrology, don’t look to the stars for every single thing, learn to distance yourself from it and know when it is not needed or inappropriate to turn to astrology. It doesn’t dictate your life so don’t let it. 

8) Above all, understand what astrology is and what it isn’t. It is crucial to do this to be a good astrologer. Don’t just learn what it teaches, learn what it is
