I plan on spending all of my money traveling someday.

We’re made up of millions of tiny stories, and you’re the novel I never want to put down.

theglasschild:

"Suppose that it’s only when you dare to let go that your real life begins? When you’re whirling free of the mother ship, when you cut your ropes, slip your chain, step off the map, go absent without leave, scram, vamoose, whatever: suppose that it’s then, and only then, that you’re actually free to act! To lead the life nobody tells you how to live, or when, or why. In which nobody orders you go forth and die for them, or for god, or comes to get you because you broke one of the rules, or because you’re one of those people who are, for reasons which unfortunately you can’t be given, simply not allowed. Suppose you’ve got to go through the feeling of being lost, into the chaos and beyond; you’ve got to accept the loneliness, the wild panic of losing your moorings, the vertiginous terror of the horizon spinning round and round like the edge of a coin tossed in the air."

– Salman Rushdie

I stopped telling myself that I’m lost.

I’m not.

I’m on a road with no destination, I’m just driving with hope that I’ll find a place that I like and I’ll stay there.

I’m not lost, I’m on my way.

Awe isn’t limited to landscapes; it also is sparked by people who connect to the essence, the wisdom, of a place.

—Todd Pitock

I am homesick for a place I am not sure even exists. One where my heart is full. My body loved. And my soul understood.

Is this not the definition of fernweh?

Let people know that they matter to you.

Three simple rules in life. 1. If you do not go after what you want, you’ll never have it. 2. If you do not ask, the answer will always be no. 3. If you do not step forward, you will always be in the same place.

Life would be so much simpler if you liked the right people—the people you’re supposed to like. But then I guess there’d be no fairy tales.

Youths are passed through schools that don’t teach, then forced to search for jobs that don’t exist and finally left stranded in the street to stare at the glamorous lives advertised around them.
