So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.
Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.”
Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.
Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.”
laptop overheating?? pour water on it to cool it down!
i trusted you
Do not trust people like me. I will take you to museums, and parks, and monuments, and kiss you in every beautiful place, so that you can never go back to them without tasting me like blood in your mouth. I will destroy you in the most beautiful way possible. And when I leave you will finally understand, why storms are named after people
The first time I didn’t know what it was. I was sad and hurt and ate a lot of ice cream and watched a lot of day time TV. I read your messages over and over and waited for you to come back. Every time the phone rang I smiled at the thought it might be you and then my heart sank even deeper into my chest when I realised it couldn’t be.
The second time was when I finally accepted you weren’t coming home. I recognised it this time. So I did the things the poems suggested and I stared out at sea and watched sad films. But it didn’t help because I was too numb. I would lie on the floor of the bathroom and listen to documentaries in the back ground. Some times I would eat vegemite to remember what tasteless was. I spent my mornings swimming in freezing beaches hoping to break out of it. Occasionally I would look for someone to crush on just so I could experience something. Occasionally I would wake up at 4 am and sob myself back to sleep.
