"This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time."

罪人 + 情人
We hiked top of the world yesterday. We hit mid point, around sunset where we marveled in the gradation of nature. I held onto the one I love most in life & we fell into a series of sun salutations. I know people often measure their lives by what they have done, but, after experiencing a quiet moment like this, in a desolate area with people who really care about you, the measuring process seems to shift. I want to measure my life by the amount of sunsets and sunrises I get to see tucked away in my lover’s arms.

What you learn from loss. A powerful read from Free People contributor Miann.

Unintentionally cleaned out my whole room. This is what happens when your mind is set on moving.
