jack Johnson & an empty kitchen calls for slow dancin with my lovee

i just don’t understand why i cant have this

I cry


looking through some old photographs of mine & discovered this one, taken at my grandparents’ house in my hometown during thanksgiving last year. a bittersweet time for all of us, marked by the loss of my grandpa & yet sweetened by the comfort of knowing he left to be with Jesus. remembering the way the light looked at sunrise & the way the house was filled with the scent of apple pies we baked together. (at salem, oregon)

You must learn to let go. Release the stress. You were never in control anyway.

Rain dropping into water is a fantastic sight. Just watching it “ker-plop” into the water and cause a shockwave that meets other shockwaves. I think it implies the same enjoyment people feel when they jump into a puddle of water, or dip their toes into a lake.

30 Day Challenge - Day 10

Yesterday was another day that was more of a lesson than a triumph. I spent the day with my boyfriend and we were having a really good time until I freaked out over something when I didn’t need to which resulted in us both getting pretty upset. I won’t go into the details but it was rough. *sigh* I thought I was getting better but obviously I still have a long way to go. I have to stop letting my issues effect us like this. He reckons I’m trying to do too much all at once and he wants me to focus on breathing and thinking before I speak in certain moments. However he it was more important that I learn to see myself as other people see me. And sometimes I can. But sometimes, particularly in moments like the one yesterday when I get in a funk, all the self hate comes back. It’s very easy to focus on the negative even when the positive is staring you in the face. But yeah I’ll just have to start again today and keep taking everyday as it comes!
