it’s never too late. go after what you want! it doesn’t matter if you’re 15 or 25 or 65. there’s no deadline or fixed schedule you need to follow. starting over or starting late is okay! go at your own pace!
Take that pencil and draw, even if you haven’t done it for years. Pick up that guitar and strum it, even if you never took a single class. Click that camera button and take a picture, even if you don’t know anything about temperature or saturation. You should do what you feel drawn to even if you think that you aren’t “skilled”. You should do it because you genuinely enjoy it, which is more than enough.
you don’t have to prove yourself worthy of being alive. you don’t have to prove yourself worthy of being here. you don’t have to prove yourself worthy of being loved. there are no terms and conditions to your right to exist.
i can’t wait to have casual intimacy with you. a kiss in your hair when i sit next to you. your legs in my lap while we watch a movie. washing each others hair. socked feet touching under the table. even just being in the same room as you, each of us doing our own things, would be enough. i love you so much
it’s a breezy summer night, and we are lying on the damp grass looking up at a clear and starry sky. the only noises surrounding us are a gentle hum of insects, the tree leaves blowing in the slight winds, and our calm breathing. i look at you admiring the stars and realize the sheer vastness of the world; how there’s no place in the universe i’d rather be than right here next to you.
you know what upsets me? like a lot? there are people in the positivity/spirituality community who have been through some of the most horrifying things, deal with such challenging mental struggles, and people just outright assume that because they’re being positive they’ve never known pain. everyone’s known pain. and your hard life doesn’t give you an excuse to be a negative jerk, and it definitely doesn’t give you the right to assume that those of us who are making efforts to heal are just privileged and don’t understand what its like to really struggle. you don’t have the right to make that assumption. you just don’t. I really can’t believe some people have the nerve to turn having a hard life into a competition—its. just. not. we’re all working through things and trying our best to do better, and its pretty much impossible to measure who has it “worse” or “easier”. just let others be. just let them be.
Concept: we’re sitting in a garden, somewhere hot. We’re sipping bubbly, soaking up the sun, and talking about our plans for the rest of our time away. We’re both excited and calm at the same time, and I’m so grateful to be here with you
