At what age or life event or accomplishment will I have to reach to be considered an adult by adults.
I’m almost 21 years old and I feel like my presence is not acknowledged or respected by some adults in my life.
I wish that there was a socially acceptable way to say, “I’m having a bad mental health day and need you to pay attention to me,” without alienating everyone.
Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t. — Steve Maraboli (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

I can tell you I’ll be tired a lot this summer.
I hope it is a good tired, though.
Hope begins in the dark, the stubborn hope that if you just show up and try to do the right thing, the dawn will come. You wait and you watch and you work: You don’t give up. — Anne Lamott (via quote-book)
Time has only made it harder.
Reality is setting in and I don’t like it.
Everyone keeps telling me I’m gonna make it, but I don’t know anymore.
I’m in need of a major break. Sleep. A pep talk. A hug.
Oh, does it hurt sometimes.

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. — Kahlil Gibran (via thatkindofwoman)

-finished all my classes except poetry
-conquered a ropes course… And by conquered I mean cried, turned around, and only went back because I didn’t want to be “that girl” and April gave me a pep talk… And by ropes course I mean a 2 hour play session in the play ground in the sky.
-enjoyed time at the house (we’re doing, I can’t believe it, but we’re actually doing it).
-did RA stuff (shout out to Laura and Christina for cleaning up after my residents when I got disgusted with them).
-cleaned the bathroom.
-cleaned more of my room.
-now I’m lying in bed filling a mixture of accomplished, exhausted, not enough, emotionally unstable, making it, and nostalgic.
-I’m so ready for this semester to be one in the books.
Being kind isn’t always easy. Or convenient. But it has the potential to change everything. — Cap Watkins (via godmoves)

and let the joy you wait for
catch up with you now. — Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson (via tylerknott)

when we stop waiting for life
and start living it. — Daily Haiku on Love by Tyler Knott Gregson (via tylerknott)
