“You don’t need to be
someone else’s universe
to be able to see
that you are a galaxy.

You don’t need to be
someone else’s light
to be able to appreciate
the way you shine.” — m.v., For every girl that ever felt she wasn’t enough.  (via findingwordsforthoughts)

You look so amazing!

This inspires me to stop being self conscious about my chest.

The last thing I do to finish an art journal is to do something to the cover. I tried painting something on this one but didn’t really like it so I covered it with a piece of the drop paper from my desk. I love the colors on it and that it is representative of the work that is inside. Looking at it makes me happy!

1. Do not date a boy who does not care what your favourite song is. The boy who does not care what melodies ignite your heart strings with love and wonder while staring at passing street lights on the last train home, will not care if it’s 2 a.m. and your heart is breaking.

2. Do not let anyone fold you up like last winters tattered scarf and put you away with the others in a neatly labeled box. Even when there’s thunder and the sky is crying, you are your mum’s favourite summer dress. You are to wear yourself like you believe it.

3. We are all stories. Write yours how you want. Make today’s chapter about purposely taking the wrong bus and discovering a tiny blue tea shop, or folding origami paper hearts over and over on your window sill. Just make sure it’s something you’d enjoy reading.

4. I will always try to save you.

5. Someday you will be 19 and lost and heartbroken and you will think about a place you’ve seen on TV or heard or read about in a book or seen a picture of. You will feel your heart drop into your stomach. Go there. For a day, a month, forever, but it’s important that you go.

6. The world is so beautiful. Do not let the slumped over homeless man outside the convenience store or the stories of guns and bombs on the television let you believe otherwise. We are all so lost. All of us. We all show it in different ways. I write bad poems. Others start wars. There is no inherent evil, only good people searching too hard.

7. I love everything about you.

8. Money turns people into liars and emotional ghosts. School grades are an inaccurate representation of you. Measure your life’s worth in how many times you’ve nearly lost your life to laughter, how many books you’ve closed with happy tears in your eyes, people whose lives you’ve brought joy to, marshmallows eaten, or countries visited.

9. Don’t ever let anyone tell you to stop crying. Cry if you want to. It’s okay. You’re allowed.

10. My best friend once told me that the most important decision he had ever made was to love everyone and everything. He’s the only person I’ve ever known to have a viewable aura of light around him. Don’t forget to love this world, to love people. Be light. You are already mine.

But actually the moon looks far better copied into cardstock in black and white and stuck to my wall with yellow striped tape.

A drawing of a moon closes out this journal.

One of the last pages in my current big art journal. I’m starting to get burnt out on it so I’m not pressuring myself to finish every page or go back to do the ones I’ve skipped.

On the page opposite this one I wrote some things I like about this page and want to use again and some that I would change.

“Was this just what happened when you got older? Maybe growing up was nothing more than growing away: from your old life, from your old self, from all those things that kept you tethered to your past.” — Jennifer E. Smith, This Is What Happy Looks Like (via anditslove)
