Illustrations and all things pretty. Of books, doodles, inspirations and all the random ramblings. Of personal artworks and interesting finds. Of nostalgia or of future dreams. A little notebook of the here and now.
At times the world may seem an unfriendly and sinister place, but believe that there is much more good in it than bad. All you have to do is look hard enough. And what might seem to be a series of unfortunate events may in fact be the first steps of a journey.
I don’t care what form it comes in, whether place, person, or experience. I just want to know what it’s like to feel young and excited and alive, because if I ever felt that way, I have long since forgotten.
I’ve spent so much of my life worrying and doubting and overthinking. For once, I want to just let go.
I want life to romance me. I want to fall head over heels.
It’s okay to change your yes to a no. Yes’s aren’t permanent. They’re something we choose again and again, each and every day. Something we have the right to recall and reconsider as soon as saying yes no longer feels conducive to our wellbeing and happiness. It doesn’t matter whether you said yes to a job, a date, a relationship, sex, a favor to a friend, a social endeavor, or a vow of silence — you don’t ever have to commit to something that forces you to compromise who you are and what feels right; especially if it’s something you agreed to under pressure, intimidation, or force. Changing your yes to a no might make people angry. It might hurt their feelings, cause them to see you as a flake, and result in lost connections. But if saying no means staying true to yourself, honoring your feelings, and making self-care a priority, it’s worth it. You are worth it. Don’t let anyone convince you otherwise.
