chasing my sunshine

Ask me anything   Submit   May this be the continuation of everything remarkable....

Anonymous asked: What would you suggest a person to do distract themselves from missing a person? I got really involved with a guy right before he had to leave for a month and we can barely communicate while he's away. Thanks!


Answer:

Look inward. Look at what you’d like to improve, change, grow.

Focus on yourself, on your best friends. On your relationships with your family and friends. Pick up a hobby. Travel. Touch, taste and learn. Don’t forget to be nostalgic. To soak up each emotion.

Live fully, friend. You never know what may happen, but wouldn’t you rather be as tough, as loving, as lovely as possible, than weak with worry?

Things always happen for a reason. Don’t doubt or question that, just trust your gut and keep moving up, forward.

tallerthanlions asked: What inspires you?


Answer:

thatkindofwoman:

People with giving souls and callused but warm hands. Hooded gazes filled with longing. Firm but loving hand holding. Running full tilt towards nothing in particular. The moment before your lips meet those of someone you want to kiss. Hugs. Words that flow gently with force. People who look me in the eye. Music that makes me sway. Architecture that reminds me of generations past. Fresh veggies and good olive oil. Laughing hard and making my stomach ache. 

Love. Love for life, and learning. For fresh flowers and white walls. For bad jokes and puns. For a man that will see all the good in me and challenge it, give it more cause to grow.

"At the end of the day, It’s beautiful and truly gratifying to know that you’ve left far more footprints of love and goodness, than the instances of falling for what seems to be a constant invitation to do otherwise."

"You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move the fuck on."

Photos of Sculptural Installation Made of Broken Medical Equipment Found in an Abandoned Hospital

From 1984 until 1987, photographer Arthur Tress Tress turned the dark, haunting halls of an abandoned hospital in NYC into a series of sculptural installations by arranging, modifying, and painting medical equipment found in the building, and documented his creations.
