these past couple of days have been unreal with my Mom. i mean, i’m currently sitting on our deck, overlooking the bay between the north fork of Long Island and Shelter Island, sipping a glass of a Macari red, listening to street performers on the boardwalk (or would you call them boardwalk performers) play “from me to you” by The Beatles….life’s really good right now.(also, Alan Cumming was in his car behind us on the ferry into Greenport today, so that was cool…)
okay, today, i officially found where i want to be. the north fork of Long Island surrounded by 40 wineries and beaches.
there, i said it.

my love for youtubers gets weird when I start following them on snapchat 😏
Right this minute, there is someone going through chemotherapy shopping at your grocery store, buying popsicles and ice cream to help their sore mouth, and worrying what the cashier is going to think.
There is someone on hemodialysis buying white bread instead of whole wheat, trying to keep their phosphorus levels reasonable between appointments and hoping for the best.
There is a person attending intensive outpatient treatment for their eating disorder who has been challenged by their therapist to buy a Frappuccino.
There are dietitians picking up a dozen different candy bars to eat with their clients, who feel ashamed and guilty about enjoying them.
There is someone who just doesn’t have it in them to cook right now, and this frozen pizza and canned soup will keep them going.
There are people recovering from chronic dieting and semi-starvation who are buying chocolate and chips at their deprived body’s insistence.
All around us are people listening to what their bodies need and attempting to make the best possible choice within a context of overwhelming food pressure. All of their choices are valid, and every single one of these foods is “real.” Michelle @ http://www.fatnutritionist.com (via onherplate)
Anonymous said: It's always good to look back at the choices, that you made when you did (or didn’t). Resolve them if they feel like unfinished business however you can. If you can cleanup what's getting you angry at those choices you can look at the present with a brighter eye. Understand that the choices you made were for a reason and it all happened to bring you to where you are today. I hope you find clarity an I wish you luck and positivity in whatever you do.
…and this one, too ❤️
Anonymous said: You can remember the past and look forward to the future but you have to live in the now. Focus your energy and time with where you are. Don't worry about the next big thing or if their is something in your future to be excited about (I'm sure there is). When the time comes you'll find that special thing that clicks with you. You'll find your passions. You'll make them happen when you're truly ready. Keep exploring yourself. Never stop trying new things and learning something new about yourself.
Thanks for this…
