Dear nightself, You know how sometimes you start feeling like: the world is a sad place - no one cares - you don’t make a great enough impact - you don’t do enough good - you’re useless. Well, that’s dumb. Kindness, love, and passion are what you have to offer. And what you have to offer is NEEDED. Life is beautiful because people are beautiful. So stop being dramatic....

Merry Southern Christmas
Let me preface this by saying how much I adore my family. I’m lucky to have them. We’ve stuck together through times harder than a lot of families could even imagine. We really do love each other.

Happiness is a choice.
And baby, I’ma choose it.
I don’t like the death penalty. I remember when I was 17 and didn’t care either way. It “didn’t matter”. It didn’t affect me. Then all of a sudden I was pulled into the middle of it… hating it… afraid of it… wishing it away. I’m still there - in that same middle, although most(ish) days, it doesn’t even cross my mind.
