I’ve been told quite a few times that I have a ‘unique’ way of looking at things. For years I wasn’t sure if that was a compliment but I’m choosing to take it as one. And I think I’ve realized what they meant. I don’t see things in black and white, I don’t even see things in grey. Everything is in such brilliant colour. I can always see boths sides of any argument, I can always see the broken person behind a cold and mean exterior. I don’t just enjoy a sunset, I feel it in every part of my being. The beauty that is literally around us at every second, I can’t just pass it by.
The taste of really good coffee that makes you smile because for that one second you feel like you can tackle the day. That feeling you get when you listen to a song and it feels like its talking straight to your heart, so you sit and play it again a hundred times over. When you have conversations with people and you find that one person that sees the world the same way as you. Waking up on a saturday and knowing that the whole day belongs to you, with no guilt or pressures. Making breakfast for dinner. Long car rides with your best friend as you sing songs at the top of your voice. Being wrapped up in someone’s arms and watching your favourite movie for the billionth time. Reading a book and being unable to move on from it for a while. It’s things like this that are some of the most beautiful things you can experience in life. It’s the ability to live simply and love greatly.
Over the past two years, I’ve experienced some of the worst kinds of heartbreak. Things I wouldn’t wish my worst enemy to go through. So, I know, to put it frankly, how fucking difficult life can be. That’s why I’m taking back my life and all the messy parts of it and making it beautiful. I experience things with all of heart, all of the time. Which means I get hurt, alot. But it also means I live my life to the full in whatever I do, and I’m happy with that trade off.
There are quotes that I have read and that have stayed with me. I’ve repeated them to myself so much, I think they actually might be imprinted on my heart. I thought they might help you, even if all you need is something positive to look at today. (These are some photo’s I took of our time away in Melbourne.) ❤
