You’re allowed to romanticize life. Every little stir of your coffee, every sip of your tea. The sounds of leaves and snow crunching under your shoes, and the way your breath curls through the air when it’s cold. Life is beautiful, never forget.
if you’re at a point right now where you don’t see any hope in the future, remember that the future will always seem overwhelming when you’re thinking about it all at once. you only have to live through one moment at a time. focus on now and focus on getting through this, because you will.
I wasnt on tumblr in months..i kinda miss it
I saw an article called “Make Peace With Your Unlived Life” and it really made me stop and think. So much of our lives is mourning for what we didn’t become. It’s a waste. We didn’t waste any opportunities. What came and went was not meant for us.
If you genuinely enjoy being alone, do you ever wonder if it is an inherent part of your character or if it stems from feeling inescapably lonely in the first place until you taught yourself to enjoy the peace and happiness one can find in solitude? what if the reason you now prefer & choose solitude at every turn is because you were a very lonely child, or teenager, not by your own choice, and that’s how you learnt to thrive and grow, so you no longer know if you can do that around people? There might also be an element of personal pride, an unconscious “you can’t fire me I quit” point when your brain decided to switch your feelings about solitude from distress to relief. I often find myself defending my love of being alone, to people who worry that I can’t possibly be happy to live in an isolated house in the woods; I insist that I do! I really do specifically enjoy the isolated factor and chose to live here because of it, but then I wonder how to differentiate an ingrained love of solitude from an acquired ability to thrive off unchosen loneliness, to learn from it and be nourished by it; to what extent it might be a form of contentment built on a bedrock of resignation.
Don’t fall into the trap of making plans for a version of yourself that doesn’t exist. Planning for the version of you now, with your current ability and limitations, instead of the ideal version in your head will always yield the best results.
Do i want to reread that 300k fanfic again like what is the point i know it by heart but i have the need to do it again
A tip for everyone who’s currently quarantined like me: indulge in self care. Keep your hair clean and tidy, don’t stay in your pajamas all day, wear something extra comfy but make sure you feel good about yourself. The thing is, it’s easy to spiral into depression when you’re stuck at home and start neglecting yourself. Also indulge into your favorite comfort food recipes, and stretch your body every once in a while. Our body and mind need all the love right now!
