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

How to Begin Your Self-Love Journey This Year

When I originally had the idea for this piece of writing I’m about to share with you, I was in a place of transition. I didn’t know my place in the world, I didn’t know if I was worth it and I certainly didn’t feel like I could love myself. Here I am almost a year later, an example of how this works - if you choose to put it into practice. You can improve and learn to love yourself. You can take the steps that bring you into a better place.

I won’t say it was easy and I certainly won’t say I had overnight success, but when you learn to fight your battles one at a time, you’ll be able to look back and see how far you’ve come.

Are you ready to take the first step?

Self Love: Step one I have always been a timid person. I’ve always had trouble keeping the standards I have for myself something below what I deem “perfect”. I enjoy discipline and when I don’t know what to do or my world is shaken, I’m hard on myself.

That’s just who I am.

With that said, I've always felt like I was not a…

A Love Letter

To my dear, blooming Rose - Attached to this letter is not only my love, but my gratitude, thankfulness and a small box of decadent dark chocolates. I would've had flowers delivered too, but no measly plant could ever compare or express my feelings toward you.

Ahh, my dear. You are my truest bundle of joy. It does not matter what mood you are in - you light up my day in the most wonderful of ways.

Your smile makes the sun jealous. Your embrace makes me feel full. Your laughter - so thick and loud - makes me want to laugh too.

What I love most is when you are truly and purely being yourself - because that's who you're meant to be.

With much love and kisses blown with a wink,
Your Secret Admirer

PS: Maybe we could share those chocolates later, eh?

When you need some uplifting, write yourself a love letter. Be silly and positive. Analyze yourself. Amp up your best qualities. De-sock your feet as you write and wiggle your toes as your write (then put your socks back on b…
