I wash away what you long for.

Hello. I'm dancing like I'm 22. I love Paper Route. I love to read. I like to take photos. I'm changing and I'm growing every day. I'm learning to take life as it comes and see the beauty in every day and every person. I'm learning to love myself. Thanks for visiting my blog.

"My mother used to say to me, ‘You can’t eat beauty, it doesn’t feed you.’ And these words played and bothered me, I didn’t really understand them until finally I realized that beauty was not a thing that I could acquire or consume. It was something that I just had to be. And what my mother meant by saying that you can’t eat beauty is that you can’t rely on beauty to sustain you. What actually sustains us, what is fundamentally beautiful is compassion for yourself and those around you. That kind of beauty inflames the heart and enchants the soul."
