My body is telling me to sleep, but my brain is telling me to study. This is quite the internal debate.
I want to be wrapped in your arms, but instead you’re wrapped in my thoughts.I miss you. (via fearlessknightsandfairytales)
The most wonderful man I have ever met filled me with infinite little one line doses of wisdom this weekend. One that keeps coming back to me is
“You can control very few things in life. They are your breath, your thoughts and your posture.”
So stand up straight, take a deep breath, and purge your mind of negative thoughts.
Watch how your life transforms.
Buy half-price lingerie and model it in your bedroom for yourself. Feel like you have a secret because you’re wearing black, see-through underwear while talking to your teacher about your next assignment. Glance at attractive strangers on public transportation. When they look back, hold their gaze for a few seconds. Smile. Get their number. Get off the train and never see them again, riding the high of your mutual minute of understanding. Accept more dinner invitations with people who spark your interest, romantically or not. Keep yourself busy with the things your relationship used to keep you from doing. Practice a hobby. Learn a new language and feel how good it is to say “goodbye” in a new way. Fuck yourself in the shower. Begin to appreciate sex in a way you couldn’t before. Sing along to pop songs without guilt. Buy yourself flowers to tuck behind your ear. Laugh easily. Let the ache hollow out more room for you to grow. When you catch your ex on the street six months later, smile when they tell you you’ve changed. Consider telling them you are a wildfire that burned over the places they touched. Consider reminding them you cannot know every space in someone by running your fingers over them. For a second, consider asking them to take you back and then laugh because you are no longer the same person they held. You are a wildfire and the world is made of brush. Go ahead and burn.What To Do After A Break Up | Lora Mathis (via moonsads)
have you ever known somebody so shitty they completely ruin that first name for you?
Ha. Have you ever taught?
Will never name a child Sawyer
Or Marina. Girl peed on my sleeping bag on overnight, then told me she didn’t want to be in my cabin the following week. Good thing I didn’t want her either.
