my ultimate goal is to be at peace with myself, eliminate toxic feelings and elements and energies from my life, unlearn negative and harmful practices and thought patterns, stop checking for people that don’t check for me, create a space for myself that is nurturing for growth so that i may generate loving energy for myself and for others, nourish my spirit and balance my energies, i have big dreams and i deserve to live a life i love and let that love radiate
Stupid long text post about my lyfeee.
Feeling like I’ve made some emotional progress this summer if that makes sense. Really thought about why I act the way I do an reached some conclusions.
Applied for extenuating circumstances so am worrying about my retake less.
Just got a new job with more regular hours.
Really appreciating my group of friends for being as crazy as I am.
Looking forward to my other half (I’m the better half of us though obvs) returning from his summer adventures.
So basically, money situation is looking good, new house/housemates is looking good, grades are improving and I think maybe I’m starting to feel a bit like a grown up.
I suppose I love this life,
in spite of my clenched fist.
I open my palm and my lifelines look like branches from an Aspen tree,
and there are songbirds perched on the tips of my fingers,
and I wonder if Beethoven held his breath
the first time his fingers touched the keys
the same way a soldier holds his breath
the first time his finger clicks the trigger.
We all have different reasons for forgetting to breathe.
It’s ausartak's favourite time again - I'm attempting to pack!
Does anyone want to come do it for me?
I’m packing clothes at the moment and have nearly 1/3 filled my huge suitcase with half the stuff I’ve got out. I still have to get out cardigans and fold them, decide if I’m taking jumpers…

If photos take pieces if our souls then selfies are horcruxes and I’m immortal.
In Islam, Satan is identified as the single angel who, setting himself apart from all other angelic beings, refused God’s command to bow down before Adam on the day of his creation. When questioned by the Creator as to why he disobeyed, the Devil answered that he bowed down solely to the Divine, not to any of the created. Unrepentant, he also argued that God’s will determines all things, so it would not have been possible for him to refuse God’s command unless God himself had allowed him to do so.
For this, he was banished from Heaven and was taken away from the presence of God. No more does the eye of God enlighten him; no more will the touch of God give him joy.
But in spite of this punishment, he has never lost his love for God.
He alone, of all beings in the cosmos, loves God without gain, without hope, without even the possibility of feeling loved in return. Thus, seen objectively, this unrequited love is the most pure of any. The Devil serves without reward.
Even while bearing the burden of eternal separation, the Devil has taken on the thankless and usually misunderstood task of creating obstacles for human beings. What few realize is that, through rising above these obstacles, we are able to rise where he cannot go, stepping over him in our ascent toward our own higher natures. The Devil toughens us, forces us to remain awake, an offers lessons as no other angel can. Would we ever have learned to walk if our parents had continued to carry us everywhere? Our troubles and temptations, even if truly given to us by the Devil, are still ultimately gifts of God.
