It is so close to summer I can almost taste it. The beautiful, sunny warm days…walks around the park…ice cream stops…drinking a beer on the porch…not being pale. I almost can’t stand spring because it gives these short-lived, tempting doses of perfect weather alongside cold, rainy days. But something I’ve learned about myself is that despite the bi-polar weather, I thrive on season change.
As much as I would like to have summer every day, the seasons have become a part of who I am. There’s something about going through really shitty times/weather that makes the beautiful times/weather so much more meaningful.
“The more pain you have experienced, the more joy you are capable of feeling.”
I stumbled across this quote the other day and it gave me this overwhelming feeling of peace. The bad makes the good amazing. Winter makes summer incredible. In conclusion, the never-ending joy in my heart comes from my difficult, terrible experiences and I’m grateful for each of them every damn day. Even though I might be on the brink of a mid-life crisis at 23. And it’s 50 degrees and raining on May 15. BUT YEAH SUPER GRATEFUL!
Also this outfit is brought to you by a painful winter of no sun.
