First of all,
Hope y’all are celebrating correctly.
I am currently ill. I don’t know how I end up getting sick all of the time when I lead a fairly healthy lifestyle and clean obsessively but oh well. I have been consuming oranges in hopes that I will heal quickly.
Before I fall back asleep for my 15th nap, I just had to share the most amazing, thought-provoking quote I came across. Like every other white 14-22 year old girl in America, yesterday I received the new Taylor Swift album. I am not ashamed. Her lyrics resonate. She gets what it is like to be an independent woman yet a hopeless romantic.
Reading through her foreword, she mentions that for the longest time, she never thought she could find happiness in a world where she is not in love.
NOW THAT IS SOME REAL TALK.
I have lived my whole life feeling incomplete, faulty even, if I am not with someone.
But I am learning that that is absolutely ridiculous.
So, I am making it my goal to worry about me. Do what I want. Quit living to be someone that someone else could love.
I am going to breathe and act and be for only my sake.
Wish me luck!
