I've been watching Vine compilations on YouTube in my free time recently... Not sure why. Maybe I'm just passively distracting myself from actually taking action on my life.

GIRL: Self-sabatoge will get you nowhere closer to your goals. BOY: I know... GIRL: You need to learn to value yourself, your ideas, and what you create. BOY: I know... GIRL: You say, you "know", but do you? BOY: I don't know... I'm lost. GIRL: I know... me too.

i hold on tightly to the places that mean the most to me. it is in these places that i find myself; in the silent whispers of the trees as they creak in the subtle breeze, the gentle raindrops as they splash life onto the forest floor. it is in these places where i find peace, joy, gratitude and unconditional love. holding on tightly to these places keeps me grounded in what matters most. #standupforparks - human: @gidgitsymons

PUR·POSE //noun// THE REASON FOR WHICH SOMETHING IS DONE OR CREATED OR FOR WHICH SOMETHING EXISTS. // I've been doing alot of thinking about what it means to have a purpose the past 24hrs... I've yet to be able to find what mine is in that time (lol) or through out my entire 26.5 years of life. // Over the years I've thought I knew what it was, but the problem is that I was looking in the wrong places... in a significant other, a job or even a perceive future I was creating in my head. It has been soul crushing to realise, time after time, I have no clue what I'm doing and am just lost, floating through life. // A few things I do know; I have value, I love deeply, and I have a plethora of passions! Maybe for now that's all I need to focus on, and who knows, purpose might just find it's way into my life.

when you go out into the woods and you look at trees, you see all these different trees. some of them are bent, and some of them are straight, and some of them are evergreens, and some of them are whatever. you look at the tree and you allow it. you appreciate it. you see why it is the way it is. you sort of understand that it didn’t get enough light, and so it turned that way. and you don’t get all emotional about it. you just allow it. you appreciate the tree. the minute you get near humans, you lose all that. you are constantly saying “you’re too that, or i’m too this.” that judging mind comes in... so let's practice turning people into trees. which means appreciating them just the way they are. 🌲🌳🌴🌲

"she loved the sea. she liked the sharp salty smell of the air, and the vastness of the horizons bounded only by a vault of azure sky above. it made her feel small, but free as well." • human: @shakey_jmd

"she is art, in every sense of the word. in the strokes of her laugh, in the hues of her eyes, in the abstract shape of her mind and in the colorful canvas that is her heart..." • human: @bevmegs

when you've been dreaming of going to a place for over a year, it can be easy to over hype it and end up disappointed... this was not the case. pure magic.

i'm learning to like the in-betweens; the time it takes to get somewhere.

Generally if something feels terrifyingly exciting - it's the path you're meant to take. • human: @c_ouellet

How quick we are to forget our successes and instead remember our failures. It's time to focus on the successes a little more often. • human: @shootingkayli
