It’s a beautiful practice to observe the self. To be mindful of your own thoughts an actions. To be completely present. So much so that you can feel yourself and the world around you so deeply that your power is absolutely undeniable. You are able to understand this undeniable power because you know, that you are all. And all is you. Everything you will ever need is already within. In observing the self and being mindful of your thoughts and actions, you now have the ability to shape and expand your very being. Growing a little bit each day. A garden will grow from your bones. Sprout from your skin. Radiating light from the inside out.
ｆｉｇｈｔ🌑🌑🌚.. You changed, and that is the single greatest reality of moving forward; that is the incredible outcome of surviving the hardest parts of your journey.
And yes, sometimes life is going to kick your teeth in. Sometimes it is going to confuse you, sometimes nothing will make sense, and everything will be messy. But you’re going to learn. You’re going to fight tooth and nail, and you’re going to grow. Slowly but surely, you’re going to grow.
You’re going to find your people. You’re going to stay up until 5am on a random Tuesday and talk about your past with someone who enlivens you. You may even fall in love. You’re going to go to concerts that ring truth through your bones and make you feel like your cells are vibrating. You’re going to stop and stare at the ocean and you’re going to feel so small, yet so fucking big, and you’re going to finally, finally, feel like things are falling into place. You’re going to be moved by your life. You’re going to feel everything all at once — you’re going to feel complete.
Trust me, one day it’s going to hit you — that you woke up happy, that you’re smiling for no reason, that your hands aren’t shaking anymore. One day, you’re going to remember what it was like to be you a year ago, or three years ago, or even a week ago, and you’re going to be so glad that you fought. You’re going to be so glad that you kept going. #zuckerthoughts#vintage#vintagestyle#portrait#blondgirl#vsco#vscocam#bohemian#thoughts#dontgiveup#movingforward
