thinking out loud, writing from the heart, eating for the soul
i made a list of the things that i want in life while i was on the train the other day. i want:
to be told that i’m loved
to learn something new everyday
to eat lots of raw fish
to learn web design
to be like ellen degeneres
to live in the moment
i’ve been thinking a lot about the people who are in my life, and how i affect theirs in return. i’ve always believed in true friendships instead of shallow ones. if i can’t bear my soul to the person and have that from them in return, then it’s too shallow of a friendship. those are the people who keep you going in life. they’re the ones who hold you up when you can’t stand, who you want to call first when something great happens, who are there for you no matter what.
i promise you this: you can always trust that i will say what what i’m thinking or feeling needs to be said. i don’t believe in lies. i don’t believe in deception. i certainly don’t believe in avoiding anything just because it’s uncomfortable.
be true to your heart and say what you feel, because otherwise, you risk the chance of losing someone you care about without having them know how much you care.
to all of my friends and family who have been there for me – thank you for the support throughout my life as well as with this move to japan. the transition hasn’t been easy, but i trust that this is where i’m supposed to be at the moment. i love you guys.
