It wasn’t supposed to happen. However, what ever is? They weren’t supposed to enjoy street side gourmet hot dogs, washed down with freshly squeezed peach lemonade underneath the city’s latest tourist attraction. They weren’t supposed to stumble upon a playground en route to the car, and actually take the time to enjoy a moment on tire swings and slides. He wasn’t supposed to forget his phone charger when he left her loft. However, he did. Maybe she wasn’t supposed to pick up the phone and invite him back in. However, she will.
Nothing last forever, but forever. Just earlier that morning we were discussing furnishing our apartment, and bantering about the location. “Well, if you get accepted into Clark it would only make sense to live somewhere on the West End. If not, maybe we can stay in Dunwoody. It’s fairly nice and not too far from the city.” She was adamant about bringing her puppy- an overweight purebred bulldog who was way too old to still be deemed a puppy, yet way too cute to deny. I could I ever say “no” to my girl’s cappuccino brown bedroom eyes and facial craters.
Got stood up, low key. But also made $260. I’ll focus on the latter. You lose some, you win more. Control the controllable. Worrying about things you can’t change is a waste. Utilize that time and energy for something constructively conducive to becoming your higher you. Bless.
So…as I ate a piece of fried chicken, something told me to just…stop…and think about what I was doing. I think it was God, to be honest.<img></img> So, I thought…and was disgusted. I currently had a piece of the fried chicken in my mouth, however as I chewed away..it wouldn’t break down. I spit it out. Every day we consume all of this food that our society deems “good for you”, but it’s not “good” at all. Like…think about what you’re doing when you eat a piece of fried chicken..

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can.

Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”—Louise Erdrich (via eatcakey)
“Do you ever think about all the people who you might have fallen in love with if only you’d taken a different way home or stood a little longer in the bread aisle at the supermarket? All the people who might have been an integral part of your life but instead you’ll never know them. The unimaginable impact that our mundane choices have on our lives really gets to me. Think of how many times I might have died if I’d made different choices. Maybe I’d be homeless. Maybe I’d be famous. Maybe I’d be rich. Sometimes I’m so overwhelmed by the impact of my choices that I can’t choose anything at all because I’m afraid today will be the day that I make the choice that changes everything.”—Unknown (via aurelle)
