I’m going to keep reblogging this.
YES YES YES YES ALL OF THIS YES YES.

I go down to the shore in the morning
and depending on the hour the waves
are rolling in or moving out,
and I say, oh, I am miserable,
what should I do? And the sea says
in its lovely voice:
Excuse me, I have work to do. —Mary Oliver, from the book A Thousand Mornings
No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom, in a car, or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in. —Dan Campbell
