I pose for photos {part 2}

"You are, after all, what you think. Your emotions are the slaves to your thoughts, and you are the slave to your emotions." 
- Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert
I have been feeling uninspired, insignificant and lonely the past few days and I don't know why. I have a backlog of posts I have to write but still haven't been able to. I acknowledge I have to change my mindset, and what better way to do this than by reminding myself that life is beautiful? That I am beautiful? :)

 To borrow my soul sister Ana's favorite line from a Goo Goo Dolls song, "What you feel is what you are, and what you are is beautiful."

And just because it's inspiring, I want to share what I found in Tumblr:
It’s laughing with your friend at a time when you shouldn’t. It’s the sweat in your palms wanting to know someone you see and the pit in your stomach when they actually see you. It’s being touched by hands that aren’t your own. It’s the thrill of an escape that almost wasn’t. It’s the embarrassment you feel, naked for the first time. It’s helping a friend find something they lost. It’s a smile, a joke, a song. It’s what someone does that they like doing. It’s what someone does that they like remembering. It’s the thinking of things you may never do and the doing of things you may never have thought. It’s the road ahead and the road behind. It’s the first step and the last and every one in between, because they all make up the good life.
