wind || dreams

sometimes i just feel like
deteriorating into the wind.
letting it take me away, little by little.
until i am no more.

sometimes i feel like
running toward the edge,
hoping the wind will catch me,
and help me fly away.

sometimes i feel like
falling back, letting the breeze
carry me away while i
close my eyes and breathe.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams. -Ashley Smith 

While I was searching for 'wind quotes' to go with my writing above, I found this lovely little passage. And, I fell in love with it.

Life is full of beauty. Notice it.
I'm trying. I'm noticing.
Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces.
I'm smiling. I'm watching.

For some reason, this passage really spoke to me. "Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams." That. That sentence got me right there. It made me think. What are my dreams? What am I doing with my life? What do I want to do with my life? Sometimes I imagine myself traveling, or signing autographs to random people, or becoming that regular everyday person who still manages to touch peoples lives--I, um, I daydream a lot... But now that I really stop and think about it, I could do that now. I could start living that life--my dreams--now.

But how?

Do you have dreams?

thanks for reading. <3

  1. Okay, so firstly I didn't tell you how flawless your design is. To say I love it is an understatement. IT IS AMAZING. <333

    Secondly...I love that picture, I love what you wrote, and that quote is perfect. Flawless post, as usual.


  2. That's a beautiful quote. :) Honestly, I haven't thought much about my future. I have no idea what I want to do with my future, and I have no dreams that I want to accomplish. Any dreams I do have are minor and would never happen. I'm always stressing about the present so much that I don't give too much thought to the future, but considering that in 5 years I'll be in college I really should be thinking about my future.

    1. oh, and for some reason that picture reminds me of Taylor Swift. i guess it's the magical-ness feel to it, the long flowy dress, and the curly hair. :)

  3. *sniffles* oh Rosie... that was so beautiful. So, so, so beautiful. <3 *sniffles* I was starting to get teary.

    this post, those words, your words, all really spoke to me and understood me. thank you. thank you for this. <3


    follow your (day)dreams <3

So this is where I'm at.

Hi friend. How are you? I hope this post meets you well. Today I wanted to write about this little space. My corner of the Internet.

After many attempts to give it a major face lift / rebrand / vibe / mission I figured out that the girl I was in 2012 when I originally started this blog is no longer who I am.

So let's start fresh.
Hi, I'm Rosie. I am a college student and a creator of many crafts. I enjoy writing Young Adult fiction, playing piano, singing at the top of my lungs, and, above all, making other people laugh. Right now I am pursuing a degree in art therapy, which means my future job will be helping people express themselves in a safe environment with someone who loves them. I have tried to be many things on the Internet, from an American Girl doll hoarder to a make-up artist, but nothing has really clicked with me.
Not until now.
I have always been a Christian. My entire life I have identified as being a follower of Jesus Christ. But the thing about growing up in t…


Have you ever had that one thing you've tried to make work but never could? This could be anything in your personal life, from piano notes to paragraphs in a blog post.

Well, I've been trying and trying and trying and trying for years now to get blogging to work for me. At one point in my life, this was my passion. I lived for your comments, your friendship, and the purity of sharing whatever was in my heart with the world. But I don't feel warmth or connection anymore. In fact, I feel rather lost. Like I'm shouting into an abyss, vying for attention and something to fill my inner void. This feeling comes more often than I care to admit, and I've pushed through all this time with the thought that it will get better. That all I have to do is keep trying and it will work out.

But it hasn't. And I'm out of ideas.

This isn't to say I won't be back. That I won't hit a creative stride in the next week and decide to share something epic with you. But f…
