"It doesn’t hurt to lose dead skin
that was once a part of you.
It shouldn’t hurt
to lose people
who are now nothing
but dead weights,
even if they were
once a part of you."

"My nights are for overthinking, my mornings are for oversleeping."
confession: there are still some nights where sleep evades me and i still feel like i’m drowning in myself.
"Don’t get stuck. Move, travel, take a class, take a risk. There is a season for wildness and a season for settledness, and this is neither. This season is about becoming. Don’t lose yourself at happy hour, but don’t lose yourself on the corporate ladder either. Stop every once in a while and go out to coffee or climb in bed with your journal. Now is your time. Walk closely with people you love. Don’t get stuck in the past, and don’t try to fast-forward yourself into a future you haven’t yet earned. Give today all the love and intensity and courage you can, and keep travelling honestly along life’s path."
