It’s hard to wake up
from a nightmare
if you aren’t even
You weren’t just a star to me,
you were my whole damn sky.
Robin Williams’ passing is a reminder that those who make us laugh the most are usually fighting the biggest demons.
Food doesn’t taste better or worse when documented by Instagram. Laughter is as genuine over Skype as it would be sharing a sofa. Pay attention. Take in nature, hold someone’s hand, read a book. But don’t ever apologize for snapping a photo of a sunrise after a hike, or blogging about the excitement of having a crush, or updating your goodreads account. All of these things are good and should be celebrated. Smile at strangers on the sidewalk and like your friends’ selfies. It’s all good for the human spirit.
Struggling between feeling too much and none at all.
