“I am happy when I eat fresh fruit, when I burst out laughing, when I discover a new song, when I finish a good book, when I wake up and feel relaxed. I’m glad to have friends, family, a home, food when I’m hungry, hot water when I shower. I love being able to live and see the seasons change, to have gifts at Christmas and at my birthday, to travel sometimes, to have a good education and a great access to culture. I’m flattered when people compliment me, when peole smile at me, when people are polite to me. There are so many things that make life so simple and easy and I will always think about them more than all the bad things that will happen to me. I do not have time to be sad every day and ungrateful; I have every reason in the world to be happy.”—A few reasons why I’ll always prefer living by elsablt (via thelittleyellowdiary)
“You are meant to fight. When you are sick, your body fights for its right to function. When you hold your breath, your body fights for its right to breathe.

you seem to be alot more positive than you use to be, why the sudden change?
I’ve just decided that nothing is that bad to let it take over your mood all the time. And part of the reason why I was always down was because I didn’t try to change it, I just let myself sulk in the sadness. And that’s no fun. You might as well live life to the fullest. There’s too many beautiful things happening in the world everyday that I don’t want to miss out on, so with a more positive outlook on things, I know I’ll have a more positive outcome. And positive is exactly what I’ve gotten. I’ve never been more happy with my life than I am right now.
