Gold; falling from the heartbeat of this girl.
I live to love. I love to live. I want to leave a permanent footprint on this earth, rather than to safely float through life in mere existence. I want the melody of my heart beating for those around me to be the soundtrack of my life.

I'm an unconventional, free-spirited dreamer, with quite a case of wanderlust; enamored with painting pictures with words, music that pauses reality, spontaneous adventures, and nature.

These are my thoughts, in visual and written form.

    When you’re sad:

    1. Write letters to the people you love. Don’t seal them; don’t send them. Instead, stick them between the pages of library books.

    2. Eat raspberries off your fingertips.

    3. Venture outside and observe natural life. Watch a honey bee suck the nectar from lavender plants. Watch a snail slowly make its way towards the shade of a tree. Watch a hummingbird innocently fly above your head. Realize how insignificant you are.

    4. Smile at strangers; say hello. It will improve their day and your own.

    5. Write lists. They can be about anything.

    6. Read several pages of the dictionary. Learn new words. Write down the ones you wish to remember.

    7. Never feel compelled to apologize when you don’t feel sorry. It’s okay that you’re honest. It’s okay that you have a different opinion from someone else.

    8. Read books and watch movies from your childhood. A healthy dose of nostalgia is okay. Immerse yourself in your past innocence.

    9. Walk to a park and get on a swing. Go as high as you can; feel limitless. The world is yours.

    10. Eat if you’re hungry. Food is not the enemy. You are a human and need food to survive. You deserve to eat. Put those raspberries on your fingers and sprinkle sugar on your tongue. Taste the summer breeze and sweet aroma of jasmine flowers.

    11. Don’t marinate in your sadness. You are not a steak. You are a person; you’re irreplaceable. Open yourself up to contentment. Bathe in the rivers of Glee. Go for hikes with Satisfaction. Sleep in a warm cocoon of blankets with Bliss. Let endless happiness overcome your hopeless sadness. You deserve to be happy. If life is a game and you are the referee, be biased for once and let happiness win.

    "A warrior feeds her body well. She trains it, works on it. Where she lacks knowledge, she studies. But above all, she must believe in her strength of will and purpose and heart and soul." - David Gemmel (via awelltraveledwoman)

    "You are still young, free.. Do yourself a favor. Before it’s too late, without thinking too much about it first, pack a pillow and a blanket and see as much of the world as you can. You will not regret it. One day it will be too late." - Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake (via wordsnquotes)
