it’s about time i learned that i can only depend on myself for happiness because everyone else will just let me down.

i realized that magical moments don’t always have to be sparkly, flashy, fireworks-in-the-sky-worthy, breathtaking, or even extraordinary. sometimes, magical moments can be walking down the sidewalk in an unfamiliar place, a long hug from someone you didn’t know very well, or a particular feeling of happiness and peace that you can’t quite explain. magic can exist in the most mundane of events and occur in the most mundane of moments. i realized that life is short and sometimes, if you keep waiting around for those big, extraordinary moments, you might just miss those subtle but equally beautiful ones.

i think sex and sexuality should be everyone’s own choice, as long as he or she doesn’t hurt other people through it. sexuality isn’t something to be ashamed of, something to be hidden away and embarrassed about. unfortunately, that’s oftentimes how the christian faith views sex and that’s kind of what i dislike about it. i mean, i listened to an hour long sermon today about why any type of sex outside of marriage is sinful and wrong and shameful.. and i just REALLY disagree. i think sex is the most natural thing and people can choose what they want to do with their bodies as long as they aren’t hurting other people. yes, sometimes people make bad choices regarding sex - but people make bad choices regarding everything. it’s really not as big of a deal as some religious people make it seem. cows fuck, turtles fuck, pigs fuck, all goddamn animals fuck. what makes humans fucking that much of a bigger deal where they are forced to feel shameful for their choices? i really can’t articulate it very well, but the whole message really rubs me the wrong way.
