“You have this one life. How do you wanna spend it? Apologizing? Regretting? Questioning? Hating yourself? Dieting? Running after people who don’t see you? Be brave. Believe in yourself. Do what feels good. Take risks. You have this one life. Make yourself proud.”—Beardsley Jones: Make yourself proud. (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

Yesterday I came home to an impromptu seamless white background photo shoot on my back porch. We dressed in costumes and we posed ourselves into becoming new characters and we played music that fit the scene.
Tonight we walked to a park and drank wine and talked about the deep Internet and bitcoin and we laughed so much I wish that it wasn’t so hard to take photos in the dark.

I think relationships in general are over romanticized like at the end of the day I’m pretty sure a good relationship is just two people who know how to hang out and talk to each other not whether or not they can right all your wrongs or paint a picture of a thousand suns with the breath from your lungs or some shit
“You have such a big heart, you’re bound to have it bump a couple of things along the way. Never make it smaller so that your journey will be easier, because there might come a time when you will need the magnitude of your heart to help others in this life. No one wishes the sun to be smaller so that they can find their way west or the north star to find their way home. Be grateful for your big heart, for with each pump brings new life.”—T.B. LaBerge // Go Now (via tblaberge)
“Our yesterdays present irreparable things to us; it is true that we have lost opportunities which will never return, but God can transform this destructive anxiety into a constructive thoughtfulness for the future.
