She Tastes Like..

“She tastes like nectar and salt. Nectar and salt and apples. Pollen and stars and hinges. She tastes like fairy tales. Swan maiden at midnight. Cream on the tip of a fox’s tongue. She tastes like hope.” -Laini Taylor, Daughter of Smoke and Bone

If the girl had been worth having she’d have waited for you?’ No, sir, the girl really worth having won’t wait for anybody.” -F. Scott Fitzgerald, This Side of Paradise

Wild.

She reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful, and just when she was almost close enough to touch she’d rush away again.

Glenda Millard, A Small Free Kiss in the Dark

How to be a better (happier and healthier) human being

“Never touch anything with half of your heart. Be present, endlessly loving and compassionate towards others. Confront any challenging situation first with a deep breath. Wander. Remember that your own happiness and comfort comes above all things. Before reacting—understand. Eat breakfast every morning. Find the faces in the flowers. Remember what is important to you. Treat your body kindly. Be honest. Get to know yourself. Take things at your own pace. Don’t feel embarrassed to feel, laugh, cry, sing or love. Remember that what’s right for someone else may not be what is right for you (and that’s okay). Never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help. Do what you love. Remember that you always have a choice. Find joy in what life really is—living.”

Learning to be at peace with this beautiful and messy world is the first step. Inhale pink, exhale grey and smile… You’re incredible.  XOXO

Exploring Different Shapes

I have decided to let today take whatever shape it desires. Lately I have been exhausting myself by spending energy on things I really can’t control. This photo, in it’s own little way, encouraged me to just let things be. For some reason I love how the bubble changes the way the mountain looks.

When life surprises us with ups & downs I feel it can make what we thought we understood  suddenly appear very confusing. I’m allowing myself some time to reevaluate the way I perceive things. Hopefully that will be the key to seeing mistakes as moments of growth & opportunities to accrue wisdom.

Todays quote helps me realize how incredibly blessed my life is. Despite all the oddly shaped outcomes I’m still so grateful. Cheers to a fresh new week.

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not; But remember that what you now have was once among the things you only hoped for.” -Epicurus Greek philosopher (341 BC – 270 BC)
