When you lift your head
your smile widens
but your eyes betray.
Your voice fills the air
missing a certain element-joy.
Even though you smile and laugh
And even though you sing and dance
you cant find the rhythm.
You dig other people's soul
but you cant find it.
You travel to a lot ofplaces
Yet you cant find it.
You read books
and you're left with the words disappointing you.
You hear music
only to realize that it aint your catalyst.
At the end you realize
What has been lost, has been lost. -f.r.
"I want something else. I’m not even sure what to call it anymore except I know it feels roomy and it’s drenched in sunlight and it’s weightless and I know it’s not cheap. Probably not even real.“ - Mark Z. Danielewski
A week ago I was at the mall trying to get my iPhone battery changed at the Apple Store. (I'm determined to keep my phone as long as I can and feel a battery change will help me do that.) I had some time to kill so ended up walking around. I have to tell you that despite not having stepped in a mall in months, the pull of the SALE was strong. Markdowns everywhere. I was tempted. I was fascinated. I was delighted. I almost caved in.
Walking around, seeing the excess at such low prices, how can we keep doing this? How can we keep overproducing? How can we keep consuming? How can a shirt cost less than a coffee? Who pays for this in the end?
•Why losing a best friend can hurt the same or even worse than any romantic relationship
Sometimes the bond between the two of you is stronger than words can describe.
She was my ride or die
We were always together and when we weren’t, it didn’t feel right and just felt odd.
Friendships usually last longer than most romantic relationships and you aren’t told that friendships end as well
I never saw you and I parting because we were two peas in a pod
We were basically sisters and family doesn’t quit on each other but that’s the thing, it happened and you left. I don’t know why, maybe I’ll never know why and maybe I’ll never get closure but I guess it is what it is.
We grew in two separate directions that sometimes have cross streets but that’s just not enough, I want us to grow on our own but have every cross street possible.
I don’t want our roads to be parallel. I want them to come back together at some point but I suppose it’s just wishful thinking
A lot of times you can get over a breakup because the relationship wasn’t that long or you can convince yourself that they were a horrible person deep down but we all know that our former best friend was one of the best humans to walk the planet. That’s why we loved them so much so I just want to say thank you, my former best friend for showing me what it means to be a good person. For showing me how to love people who aren’t related to me by blood. If you ever see this which I doubt then please know you can always call me. Because family is forever and I’ll always have a soft spot for you. •

Someone had to come hang out on the mat between Day 15 and Day 16 of #YWATRUE. All got up - surprised how much it bothered me that I fell behind. A little bit of competition with myself? Or maybe I'm tired of not finishing things I set out to do... something to consider...
#timednutrition is where you eat all the food all the time it seems. Although i must say it is a lot of food for a “diet”. So maybe it’s not a “diet” and just a way to eat real food and get to a real you size....
