Chaotically Intertwined

“ I sighed and felt selfish. I should be grateful for everything. Why is it easier to sit around feeling sorry for yourself than it is to drag yourself out of bed and appreciate what you have? Why is it so much easier to dwell on what you lack? ”

—    Awaken (Katie Kacvinsky)

“ I am the sum total of everything that went before me, of all I have been seen done, of everything done-to-me. I am everyone everything whose being-in-the-world affected was affected by mine. I am anything that happens after I’m gone which would not have happened if I had not come. ”

“ I adore the struggle you carry in yourself. I adore your terrifying sincerity. ”

—    Anaïs Nin in a letter to Henry Miller (via shehadwingson)
