Quotes and nature to help me pull through a rough day.

“You know, I think the people I feel saddest for are the ones who once knew what profoundness was, but who lost or became numb to the sensation of wonder, who felt their emotions floating away and just didn’t care. I guess that’s what’s scariest: not caring about the loss.”  ― Douglas Coupland, Player One:…

At the age of 24.75,

When I was young, I wondered, a few times, at what I could possibly regret when I am an adult. Older people around me were always talking about regrets and what they didn’t do, that if they could turn back time they would have changed something. When I was younger, I was brave and bold and lived…
