Never say yes to anything you would normally say “no” to! Don’t let anyone or any situation force you to say “ok” to something that’s not! 💞💗💞💗💯💅🏾💁🏾♀️😎
i posted this picture (*cough* ugly *cough*) and the difference from then to now is kinda crazy to me cus like it wasnt that long ago.
Anything. Everything. Nothing.
It’s all the same and yet the feeling of a welcoming sea breeze is what really terrifies me.
Please, don’t tell me that I wasn’t there… I know I wasn’t
If the full moon has taught me anything, Terra
It’s that the smallest of lights can spawn tides of evolution
So whereever you may be, know that I’ll pray for you
I’ll pray for end of your locust and the birth of your fountain
Say it with me. All the reasons we need are the ones we have.
Being 19 Is Existentially Soothing
When I a younger girl, everything I did had a reason. I colored because the teacher said to. Read a book because my dad said I’d like it. Went outside and interacted with the other neighborhood kids all day because my mom said to.
As I got older, it became more complex. Go to school and do well so you can go to college. Go to college because you need a degree. Wear makeup so you look prettier. Do your hair so you look prettier. Change your clothes so you look prettier. Shave. Do your nails. Eat more. Eat less. Post that picture. Remove the post because people are cruel. Get a job. Make money. Spend money. Save money. Listen to your parents. Ignore your parents toxic behaviors. Don’t talk about your anxiety. Don’t talk about your depression. Don’t talk about your insecurities. Have a boyfriend. Don’t have a boyfriend. Don’t have a girlfriend. Have a girlfriend or partner.
But none of that matters. From the winter of 2019, till now - August 2020 - I made that realization. And I am at peace with it. Everything I mentioned in the paragraph above doesn’t matter. I can live simply and happily and contentedly,and be kind to every new person I meet. I don’t need to prove to myself that I can do this or that, or own this or that, or become this or that. I don’t need to be nervous about saying “I love you” when it matters and I can spend as much time as I want with the people who matter to me.
Everyone dies one day. Today, tomorrow, in a few years, or decades. So why should I allow myself to suffer? I’ll leave my home in the middle of the night and drive to a different town just for ice cream. I’ll pine for that person. I’ll journal my thoughts with gold gel pens in bullet journals even though I can’t draw.
I’ll let my brain wander to the deep, existential epiphanies I need to make and observe them. Whether I’m ready to embrace them or not. Because I’m 19 and I have a lot of life left to live, so why should I wait?
I don’t know why I haven’t been uploading these because this is all I’ve been drawing lately.
New character for a DnD campaign I’m in. She’s a bumbling wizard that’s obsessed with food.
Don’t mind me… spent the day Namjooning.
