Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.
Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly."

"How do you know when it’s over?"
"Maybe when you feel more in love with your memories than with the person standing in front of you."

ambiguous-daydreams asked: Any advice on having a happy life?
Be grateful. Be grateful for your capable body and flexible mind. Be grateful for puppies that give you kisses and the sun that makes you warm and gives you a tan and the moon for lighting your evening walks. Be grateful that you can walk. Be so grateful for everything.
Realize how extraordinary life is. Whenever you can let yourself be overcome by the beauty of your hands or that blade of grass or your grandmas wrinkles.
Smile at strangers. Smile at yourself. Smile at the sun and at trees and the ants.
Sing too loud in the car and dance your ass off at stoplights.
Nourish your body with foods that fuel you and give your
imperfect tummy hugs for being so great. Look in the mirror at your naked body and laugh because you are so beautiful you can’t keep the noises from bubbling from your lips.
