I no longer have internet where I live, sadly. Therefore, my Tumblr time has been limited further. I apologize in advance for not responding to messages for like a week. But, I know I’ll be enjoying real life. :)
Fall be like …
AH. seriously though. where I’ve been surfing in oregon comes nowhere close to this.
I’ve been updating my instagram almost more than Tumblr it seems. I also got a few rolls developed and I’m going to post em on Flickr soon!!!!! :)
"We are not meant to stay wounded. We are supposed to move through our tragedies and challenges and to help each other move through the many painful episodes of our lives. By remaining stuck in the power of our wounds, we block our own transformation. We overlook the greater gifts inherent in our wounds — the strength to overcome them and the lessons that we are meant to receive through them. Wounds are the means through which we enter the hearts of other people. They are meant to teach us to become compassionate and wise."
There’s nothing better than a photo underwater of a wave’s foam with all it’s cloudy ambiguity and capturing a moment of seaweed being thrown around in it.
It’s refreshing to meet someone who speaks from their heart and really means every breath of it when they speak to you. Would you call it genuineness? I guess you can’t describe it, but you can feel it. I love people who you can feel what they say. People who make you feel something really stand out beyond everyone else. There’s something inside of them beyond themselves. And for those people, I don’t think it is about themselves. It’s purely about sharing thoughts with the other person. It’s purely a way of love. It is what it means to be alive.
"You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control."
Elizabeth Gilbert, Eat, Pray, Love
"The capacity to be alone is the capacity to love. It may look paradoxical to you, but it’s not. It is an existential truth: only those people who are capable of being alone are capable of love, of sharing, of going into the deepest core of another person—without possessing the other, without becoming dependent on the other, without reducing the other to a thing, and without becoming addicted to the other. They allow the other absolute freedom, because they know that if the other leaves, they will be as happy as they are now. Their happiness cannot be taken by the other, because it is not given by the other."
