Never touch anything with half of your heart.
Be present, endlessly loving and compassionate towards others.
Confront any challenging situation first with a deep breath.
Wander.
Remember that your own happiness and comfort comes above all things.
Before reacting, try understanding.
Eat breakfast every morning.
Find the faces in the flowers.
Remember what is important to you.
Treat your body kindly.
Be honest.
Get to know yourself.
Take things at your own pace.
Do not be embarrassed to feel, laugh, cry, sing or love.
Remember that what is right for someone else may not be what is right for you. And that is okay.
Never be ashamed or afraid to ask for help.
Do what you love.
Remember that you always have a choice.
Find joy in what life really is, living.

1. Someone once told me to always live for the little things in life. Live for the 5 A.M sunrises and 5 P.M sunsets where you’ll see colors in the sky that don’t usually belong. Live for road trips and bike rides with music in your ears and the wind in your hair. Live for days when you’re surrounded by your favorite people who make you realize that the world is not a cold, harsh place. Live for the little things because they will make you realize that this is what life is about; This is what it means to be alive. – Author Unknown

2. Learn to say fuck you to the world once in a while. You have every right to. Just stop thinking, worrying, looking over your shoulder, wondering, doubting, fearing, hurting, hoping for some easy way out, struggling, gasping, confusing, itching, scratching, mumbling, bumbling, grumbling, humbling, stumbling, rumbling, rambling, gambling, tumbling, scumbling, scrambling, hitching, hatching, bitching, moaning, groaning, honing, boning, horse-shitting, hair-splitting, nit-picking, piss-trickling, nose-sticking, ass-gouging, eyeball-poking, finger-pointing, alleyway-sneaking, long waiting, small stepping, evil-eyeing, back-scratching, searching, perching, besmirching, grinding, grinding, grinding away at yourself. Stop it and just DO. Don’t worry about cool. Make your own uncool. Make your own; Your own world. – Sol LeWitt’s admonition to Eva Hesse

3. I don’t have a favorite season. I have a favorite feeling. It’s the windows down, silent back roads with dirty bare feet feeling. It’s when I can walk straight outside without pausing to fish out a jacket. It is curtains dancing around my room because of the cool breeze that pushes against its fabric. It is sunsets after dessert and grass as my pillow. The sound of lawnmowers, falling leaves, and rain against the window. Pockets of shade and walks along a gravel road. I don’t have a favorite season, I have a favorite feeling. – Author Unknown

4. A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely. Roald Dahl

5. You know what’s really, powerfully sexy? A sense of humor. A taste for adventure. A healthy glow. Hips to grab on to. Openness. Confidence. Humility. Appetite. Intuition. Smart-ass comebacks. Presence. A quick wit. Dirty jokes told by an innocent-looking lady. A storyteller. A genius. A doctor. A new mother. A woman who realizes how beautiful she is. – Courtney E Martin

Jeg har forelsket meg helt i Blackbird Blackbird sin musikk de siste månedene, og jeg blir så utrolig glad hver gang jeg finner avslappende musikk jeg bare kan ha på i bakgrunnen mens jeg leser, spiser, tar meg et langt bad, skriver eller sitter ute i solen. Ja, egentlig uansett hva jeg gjør. Det er så himla behagelig, og jeg kunne virkelig ikke vært foruten.

Livet renner bort som sand mellom slitne fingre. Tiden glipper og forsvinner fra skjelvende hender. Men fortsatt klarer jeg, litt innimellom, å fange og holde fast ved og ikke gi slipp på de små øyeblikkene og fine tingene som gjør at jeg fortsatt sikter mot fremtiden.

Den siste måneden har jeg vært helt hektet på Electric Eyes av Metaform, og det er en stund siden jeg har funnet noe så bra og særegent. Jeg har den alltid på som bakgrunnsmusikk når jeg leser i Divergent som jeg holder på med denne uken, og den passer overraskende bra inn med tanke på hvordan jeg ser for meg ting. Albumcoveret minner også litt om byen alt foregår i gjennom mitt hode; Litt dystert og grått og forlatt, og jeg får rett og slett en skikkelig Divergent-feeling.

Jeg er nemlig sånn at hver gang jeg leser en bok har jeg alltid en spesifikk låt jeg hører på som bakgrunnsmusikk fra begynnelse til slutt, og den boken og låten vil jeg for alltid forbinde med hverandre i ettertid. Jeg liker det egentlig sånn, jeg. Northern Lights av Kleerup får meg f. eks til å tenke på Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close, From Time av Drake sender meg tilbake til den tiden jeg leste forstyrrende We Need to Talk about Kevin, Paper Thin av Flume minner meg om The Perks of Being a Wallflower og Please Don’t Go av Mike Posner forelsket jeg meg i på nytt da jeg leste ut Mockingjay. Det er sjelden jeg klarer å lytte til mye forskjellig når jeg lever meg inn i bøkenes verden, og da synes jeg alltid det er fint å høre på en enkelt låt gjennom hele som gir meg en passende følelse. Uansett; Check it out.

You can be happy tomorrow. You can be happy when you get through your list of things to do. You can be happy when you meet the one. You can be happy when you get the right job. You can be happy when you get the raise. You can be happy when you stop buying the things you need and start buying the things you want. You can be happy when you retire. You can be happy when the weather suits you. You can be happy on a plane. You can be happy in the rain. Or you can stop reading this, take a deep breath, and be happy right now.
