Think of all the beauty still left around you…

September 4, 2009

sometimes life feels great. everything feels perfect. nothing can bring you down.
& sometimes life feels hopeless. like the days when, for no particular reason, you want to burst into tears, crawl into bed, & sleep for days.
sometimes i get frustrated with how i let myself get upset over a bad thing & let it overshadow all the good things.

well lately, in the past few years or so, i’ve decided to try & let the good things shine brighter than all the bad things. so bright, in fact, that often the bad things are merely passing shadows as the day goes on. & darlings, my life has suddenly become less of a “burden”. not that it was so much in the first place, i had just let myself believe it to be…
don’t deny your feelings… feel them, concur them, & accept them.
but do not dwell
you must embrace the good to heal the bad.

The world is a looking-glass, and gives back to every man the reflection of his own face. Frown at it, and it will in turn look sourly upon you; laugh at it and with it, and it is a jolly kind companion.” – William Makepeace Thackeray

Look at the sky: that is for you. Look at each person’s face as you pass on the street: those faces are for you. And the street itself, and the ground under the street, and the ball of fire underneath the ground: all these things are for you. There are as much for you as they are for other people. Remember this when you wake up in the morning and think you have nothing.”-Miranda July

“Just think of happy things, and your heart will fly on wings…”

& hugs to you all, darlings!
