Hope everyone's having a safe summer
Much love <3
If you asked me last year where I saw myself this year, I could quickly tell you that this wasn't it.
Everything I am right now is nothing like I thought I would have been.
The way things are in general are nothing like I thought they would be.
To see people I couldn't live without last year walk away from my life & become strangers;
To see people that were once strangers, mean more than the world to me.
Seeing time fly by in the blink of an eye & feeling like nothing ever changes.
Feeling like everything has stayed the same through out these days.
Yet looking back at where I was around this exact time last year & everything, different.
"The next day, I write 'You are happy even if you are afraid to admit it.'
And it makes sense. Because how many times have I heard everyone complaining and complaining and complaining?
As if sitting back and acknowledging that things aren't all that bad is somehow wrong."
If you ask me where my own home is, the only answer I can give is that it's not a place but words. I live in words and words are where I belong.
It was terrible and awful when someone left you. You could move
on, do the best you could, but an ending is an ending. No matter
how many pages of sentences and paragraphs of great stories led up to it, it would always shave the last word.
I think meeting someone who you are comfortable with is so much more important than meeting someone who takes your breath away. You are not comfortable while holding your breath, who says you'll be comfortable with the person who took your breath away? Find someone who makes you feel comfortable in your own skin, and in their arms.
Biology says that we are who we are from birth.
That our DNA is set in stone. Unchangeable.
Our DNA doesn't account for all of us though. Life changes us.
We develop new trades. Become less territorial. We stop competing.
We learn from our mistakes. We face our greatest fears.
For better or worse. We find ways to change our biology.
The risk, of course is that we can change too much, to the point we don't recognize ourselves.
Finding a way back can be difficult. There is no compass, no map. We just have to close our eyes, take a step and hope to God we'll get there.
