Inevitably, when I left my job, it devastated me. I couldn’t just rally and move on. I did not know how to value who I was versus what I did. What I did was who I was.NYT: Is There Life After Work?
Because you can’t argue with all the fools in the world. It’s easier to let them have their way, then trick them when they’re not paying attention.― Christopher Paolini (via justbesplendid)

Remember that the future does not have to be an extension of the past.The Daily Motivator - The way forward
The sky isn’t always blue. The sun doesn’t always shine. So it’s okay to fall apart sometimes. Don’t be scared, you don’t need to pretend that everything is fine. Let it go, cry if you must, fall apart, go on. Let it drain you. Pour out everything, let your heart mourn, let it hurt until it hurt no more. And once you gain strength, stand up again, dry the tears, pick up the pieces and live again. And see how it molds you into a stronger you.(via ihatequotesihq)

The more you document your own life, the more you check in, you tweet, the more you post photos of what you did last night, the more you do all of this stuff, or even in my case, the more you listen for little lines of dialogue that can make their way into stories, the more you photograph moments, in a way, the more you start to step out of those moments, and if you do that too much, you become a spectator to your own life.Jonathan Harris via swissmiss (via ninakix)
