Those Dark Lonely Moments…

Q: Maylee, I can’t find a reason to live.

A: I will give you a list of reasons I think life is beautiful and worth living and I encourage you to really really think super hard about what’s positive in your life and what you enjoy!!
A few of mine are: baby goats, forehead kisses, eye contact, cool interactions with strangers, when the sun makes your skin feel warm, annotating books that you read for pleasure, finding weird stuff at thrift shops, babies laughing, complimenting other people, full moons, picnics, lake swimming, summer skin and wild hair, wearing a new outfit you really like, driving with the windows down and listening to a new mix tape, ripe perfect mangoes, soft grass/sand under your feet, watermelon on the Fourth of July, kittens and puppies, hugging my mom, writing/receiving letters, helping homeless people, lighting incense in my car on road trips, watching my hair grow, walking on fresh snow, staying up all night just to talk to someone you love….. I could go on! You have to find joy in little things and know that life is Yours!! You can change your entire life right now if you want to- please stick around with me!
