Hi!
For sure, I would love to hear more about this and find out more. You can send me an email at samantha.lynch@outlook.com. Can’t wait to hear from you. :)

"I will bring you flowers from the mountains, bluebells,
dark hazels, and rustic baskets of kisses.
I want to do with you
what spring does with the cherry trees.”

i want a word for the almost-home.

that point where the highway’s monotony becomes familiar
that subway stop whose name will always wake you from day’s-end dozing
that first glimpse of the skyline
that you never loved until you left it behind.

what do you call the exit sign you see even in your dreams?
is there a name for the airport terminal you come back to,
comfortably exhausted?

i need a word for rounding your corner onto your street,
for seeing your city on the horizon,
for flying homewards down your highway.

give me a word for the boundary
between the world you went to see
and the small one you call your own.

i want a word for the moment you know
you’re almost home.

there and back again, n.m.h. (via anoraborealis)

My boyfriend is the most amazing boy in all the land. He is an encourager, a worshiper, a leader and an unbelievable friend, first and foremost. He has a heart for justice and to do the right thing so big that I am often challenged with the things I have become blind to.

Recently, I have been saying I need to improve my health. Before that I was hung up on my weight in a way that was, ironically, really detrimental to my health. But I have realised it’s not about looking or being a certain weight but to simply desire to be healthy (and then obviously weight and physical improvements will come from that). I have been talking about my health for a while (read: years) but neglecting to do anything about it besides starting to drink more water. A good start but that won’t get me very far.

So last night we talked a bit about a few things, about being loved as we are but also about desiring the best for each other and becoming better people. This was a general conversation but I realised I talk a very good game about creating healthy habits in my life but don’t do anything about making them a reality. This morning I saw some not too flattering photos of me. They weren’t the worst in the world, but I didn’t like what I saw. If I am honest, my health is not a high priority. But it should be, it needs to be, and it will be.

So I asked him to join me on this journey and he is all for it. Really we are starting off with some achievable goals—when we are together, spend an hour to two hours of our time doing something active and exercise like and also I am making a rule that if I can drive through to buy it, I won’t be eating it. This will be a big challenge for me, mostly because of money and convenience sake but hey no one ever said that this this was gonna be easy. In fact anything that is worthwhile in life requires effort and some sacrifice.

Anyway, it just means a lot to me that I have such a supportive and amazing person in my life who loves me but also champions for the best me I can be, and this is in all areas of my life. And that he will so willingly help me achieve the goals I set <3

Note: if any of you guys have healthy tips and such, please leave them in my inbox. I feel for me it will be about implementing a bunch of small improvements and changes that will add up to a bigger picture. I’m not looking to run a marathon but I am just wanting to look and feel better. Thanks :)
