"Read that book, wake up early in the morning and go for that run to start off your day. Buy the nicest underwear and wear it to boost your mood. Eat as clean as possible because you’ll feel so much better but treat yourself as well. Be kind to everyone. Go out to a cafe and watch people walk buy as you sip your coffee. Compliment that stranger! Start a conversation with that person on the bus. Read a book about food, about astronomy, learn a new language. Watch the sunrise. Get away for a weekend. Introduce yourself. Do yoga and go on a hike. Lay on the beach under the stars and have a dnm with your best friend. Dance around and sing at the top of yours lungs at that festival. Life is meant to be lived, not controlled."
"You will fall in love with someone who’s cold and always seemingly pushing you away. When all is said and done, they will be forever known as the one person you couldn’t get to love you. Unfortunately, it will hurt and sting worse than the good ones, the ones that chopped up your meat for you and picked out an eyelash from your eye and were nice to your mother, because love often feels like a game we need to win. And when we lose, when we realize we couldn’t get what we ultimately desired from a person, it makes us feel like a failure and erases all the memories of those who loved us in the past."
The People You Will Fall in Love With in Your 20s (Ryan O’Connell)
I’ve been waiting for this moment to happen. For the moment when I can stop being so bitter and let go of the past. It happened this weekend, it all of a sudden hit me when I felt genuinely happy for the first time in a month. Cheesy as it may sound but I think what helped me was when I decided to invest in a Disney annual pass on Saturday. Maybe there really is something magical about this place. Whatever it may be, I am finally happy again and it feels really good to say that.
Mom just sold our house in Carmel Valley and decided to move to a smaller and less expensive house in Oceanside. Good bye Carmel Valley, it’s been a great fourteen years. Thank you for all the memories from third grade until high school and for being the place I look forward to going back to on weekends during these past four years in college.
"Our lives will continue on different directions towards an inevitable end; becoming strangers, again. And everything we shared will just become fragments of memories from so long ago, I’ll question if it even really happened. And all that will be left is this - a box of random stuff, from a faded period of time when this stranger was the most important person in my life. What a shame."
I hate this short so much for the realness of it.
But the fact that I hate it for that also makes me love it so much.
"I’m tired… I’m so tired. I thought I just needed a night’s sleep, but it’s more than that."
