He said she was golden. I don’t know why, but I just can’t shake that.
Golden. Who says that? He doesn’t even like her either. He just said that she was the type of girl who is golden.
It was two weeks ago that I heard those words come out of his mouth, but I think they will forever stay in my heart, reminding me to wait for the guy that looks at me that way. Shouldn’t we all?

Let’s all stop playing games and kiss each other right on the mouths in the middle of simple conversation just because we feel like it.

I fell in love with the boy who picked flowers for me when I was sad. I don’t know where he went, but I am learning how to be better. Today was good.

Fresh starts are underrated.
We are young as hell. It’s okay not to be anchored down. Maybe it’s better. On your own, you possess the power to leave it all behind… travel… chase your craziest dreams… no one to worry about, no one to hold you back.
Love is wonderful. But we are young, so it is also complicated. Mostly, love is a pain that aches and aches and aches… until that fateful day when you pick up the pieces and decide that it’s okay to be okay.
This is my time to be selfish. This is a white blank page. This is a new beginning and a fresh start. It’s time to move forward- unanchored. Searching & finding, searching & finding, stumbling & falling & standing back up again.
Life is learning and life is beautiful and the sun still rises above all the pain.
I belong to me. I have the rest of my life to belong to someone else.
Today, my heart feels full for the first time in awhile. It’s funny the new appreciation I have for a happy heart.
A breakup hurts worse than you ever could expect, but it’s not the end of the world. It’s the end of a world.
Today is the day that I start a new world, unanchored. Forever grateful for my first love and all that it taught me, but ready to move forward once more.

I’d like to spend an infinite number of tomorrows with you doing absolutely nothing.

I think you should do whatever the hell you want.
Say what you feel when you feel it. Dress how you want. Eat what you want. Listen to the music you like. Who cares if it’s mainstream? Who cares if it’s not? Date who you want. Love who you want.
If you dislike someone then don’t spend time with them, but don’t say mean things about them behind their back. They are trying their best. Being a human is hard, remember?
We make way too many rules in life, and I’m here to say screw them all.
Life is short. Live the life you are crazy about every single day. No one really cares what you do anyway. I just hope that when you go to bed at night you really truly land on the pillow with a smile on your face, and a feeling of goodness in your heart, because you deserve it. You deserve a beautiful life.

Come be a constellation with me.

Reality is a nasty bitch
Constantly grasping at my coat tail and yanking me
Back and back and back

Sometimes, I get heavy with the weight of all the stories I would tell him if I could.
I laid my soul bare and handed him a brush.
I can't unpaint the areas that he turned blue.
