All we ever allowed ourselves to be were parallel lines, seeing each other, hurting each other, never crossing over to the other side, choosing distance over depth, resistance over understanding, we’ve become so obsessed with emergency landings and running away…
I look forward to the simple moments this year will gift us. The moments where I get to admire you when you are unguarded, or unaware.
I love the places you hold your doubt. The places that are dark because you have forgotten to grow their light.
Remember that your left lung is smaller than your right lung, simply to make room for the heart you hold within your chest.
Do not wear your body like an apology. Wear it proudly. Be in awe of your form for what it is, for where it gets you, for what it allows you to feel and do.
You won’t miss them loudly. You will miss them in the details; you will miss them in the quiet.
I have not lost you, and you have not lost me. I am presented with you every single day of my life, I feel you with every worldly step I take, and that is what makes this beautiful.
You are never going to be able to stop yourself from screaming your love from rooftops, you will never be able to play it cool.
Travel changes you. It digs into your mind and converts your eyes from the inside. It grows your vision, develops your heart and your soul.
We reinvent love by freeing it from instant gratification; by understanding that love is something that takes time and patience, by coming to terms with the fact that being alone is much more productive than sleeping beside the convenient bones of someone who will end up making you feel lonely.
