Hi people! I'm Ashley.
Enginerding by trade, since "How to be Anthony Bourdain" isn't an accredited degree.
Someday I'm going to blow all of my money on castles in Europe.
I want to be that old person at the local townie pub sharing stories with strangers about my wild excursions abroad.
I'm in the process of redefining "me", so enjoy the random compilation of Tunes Travel Television Derby and EXERCISE. :)
When I loved myself enough, I began leaving whatever wasn’t healthy. This meant people, jobs, my own beliefs and habits—anything that kept me small. My judgement called it disloyal. Now I see it as self-loving.

You look healthy.
And by that I don’t mean you look fat.
I mean your face isn’t grey any more, the circles under your eyes aren’t so dark. Your lips aren’t cracked and dry and your hair isn’t thinning and brittle. I mean you seem more focused when I talk to you, You actually look at me and listen rather than being so unable to stay still or think about anything other than your illness that your eyes dart around the room and you nod manically the whole time I’m speaking. You seem calmer, stiller, quieter. You’re easier to have a joke with and you take things on board much more than you used to.
I mean you laugh now, you’re less serious. There’s life about you, it’s in your eyes and your smile, it’s in the way you speak and even in the way you go about your daily tasks.
You look healthy. You look happy. It really, really suits you.
Really needed to post this right now. This is the only thing that ever helps me get even a little bit into wise mind about how I look. (via foreveralotus)
I love this so much!
But sometimes no matter how much you will your legs to go, to move faster, they just won’t. That’s why I’ve always liked running. It’s like life.

When you feel you have lost everything, you still have
- unexpected kindness in strangers
- the rest of the world to travel
- languages to learn
- animals to take care of
- volunteer work to do
- the power of a good night’s rest
- the changing of seasons
- infinite things to learn
- billions of people to meet and possibly love
- billions of people who might love you back

Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it’s always your choice.
