“It’s like this whole generation of sad girls, of pretty, big-eyed girls sunken by their incessant sadness and innate desires to be loved and held. These girls who yearn for the juxtaposition of blindingly bright, flowered fields and glamorously gray urban streets, of lilacs and cinderblocks, of lace or eyelet and leather or sequins, of deer and taxi cabs. But maybe this generation isn’t lost, maybe it’s just been found; maybe everyone is a vagabond spirit and we all enjoy the blurriness, sometimes.”

“You only lose what you cling to”
Once you stop looking at your life as a series of random events & put the pieces together, you can notice what your thoughts attract and why you get put in the situations you’re in. Reflecting on cause and effect & how different thought patterns change your life helps you to make better choices in the future. Have you ever noticed that if you focus on the lack of something in your life, you only get more lack? Or if you’re content with what you have and are not desperate for anything, you get more? Or once you stop wanting something desperately/depending on it you immediately get it? …
I don’t believe any of this is a coincidence. I believe what you focus on multiplies, and if you focus on the lack rather than the abundance, you only get more lack. Once you start clinging to anything (material or otherwise) you begin to lose it and once you get attached life will do anything it can to stop you from getting too attached.. Because nothing lasts forever and by getting attached you only set yourself up for pain. Not getting attached and being grateful for what you do have is the smartest way to live because it is the beginning of receiving better things in your life. Trust and believe that life will give you what you need and let it go at that- just my personal thought.
Rantings of a seventeen year old fashion junkie, I was so ridiculous/hilarious. I was obviously reading too many Dalai Lama books.
