I want to be around people that do things. I don’t want to be around people anymore that judge or talk about what people do. I want to be around people that dream and support and do things.

10 Things I Hate About You

"I hate the way you talk to me,

And the way you cut your hair.

I hate it when you drive my car.

I hate it when you stare.

I hate your big dumb combat boots,

And the way you read my mind.

I hate you so much it makes me sick,

It even makes me rhyme.

I hate it.

I hate the way you’re always right.

I hate it when you lie.

I hate it when you make me laugh,

Even worse when you make me cry.

I hate it when you’re not around,

And the fact that you didn’t call.

But mostly I hate the way

I don’t hate you.

Not even close.

Not even a little bit.

Not even at all.”

It is very important in life to be able to maintain faith, despite the circumstances. Faith both in yourself as well as in something greater than yourself. Remember to look to whatever might give you peace and comfort when you feel you’re at your lowest point, whether it’s the sky, a letter, a memory, the sea, the mountains, a photo, a book, or a place of worship. We are all a part of a network of thoughts, energy, and time. And if you really look hard enough, you might discover that you are never alone.

We may not be able to understand the bigger picture, but stepping back and accepting that we can’t control everything in our lives takes a huge weight off our hearts and minds when plagued with worry and stress. While it is sometimes a reflex to disconnect  and retreat away from others, it is more important than ever to remain open to those around you who care. Be open to guidance and comfort, and know that whatever challenge comes at you, you can get through it. Life is dynamic and so are we. Souls are extremely adaptive and can always grow and change. Don’t be afraid to trust again. Don’t be afraid to love again. And never let the world turn you bitter, for you might push away the very people you care about the most.

Eyes lost at sea

There is something truly captivating about the way a surfer gazes out into the ocean, completely in tune with the sound of each crashing wave and the smell of the misty salt air hovering over the water. It’s as though one suddenly becomes adrift, lost in the mystery of the sea.
