what if i slept a little more and forgot about all this nonsense.

between what is said and not meant, and what is meant and not said, most of love is lost.

are not the mountains, waves, and skies a part of me and of my soul, as i of them? - chidle harold's pilgrimage

words. words. i pay with words, hoping that some combination, even a chance combination, will say what i want.
- doris lessing

i want to be the free spirit i know i am, not limited by my anxiety or depression. i want to be independent like i feel when i walk by myself in the city. i want to look at other girls and see loveliness rather than competition. i want to be so content with who i am that i forget to consider myself at all-instead, i just exist. i want to be self-aware, to know exactly what i want and need, and to go after it without hesitation.

i want to chase the life i envision for myself.
