Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.
Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.How to stay Happy (via immeganmaria)
Yesterday, I was finally able to see you for the first time in five months. You wrapped your arms around me and asked me how I was doing.
Fighting back tears, I wanted to say,
'I am so miserable now that you are never in my life anymore. I've waited months to see you here like this and now our time together is almost up, and I have no idea when I'll get to see you next, if ever again. You are the only person I've ever loved and it hurts so fucking much to see you doing so well while I'm lying on my bedroom floor every night, crying until my eyes are burning and swollen into the next day.'
Instead, my entire body shaking, I flashed a small smile and weakly responded with,
'I'm doing okay.'
You believed the lie, and honestly, I wish you hadn’t.R.M., What I didn’t say but wish I had (via orphan-soul)
So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.The Staying Philosophy (Everyday Isa)
