1. "Stop minimizing and discounting your feelings. You have every right to feel the way you do. Your feelings may not always be logical, but they are always valid. Because if you feel something, then you feel it and it’s real to you. It’s not something you can ignore or wish away. It’s there, gnawing at you, tugging at your core, and in order to find peace, you have to give yourself permission to feel whatever it is you feel. You have to let go of what you’ve been told you “should” or “shouldn’t” feel. You have to drown out the voices of people who try to shame you into silence. You have to listen to the sound of your own breathing and honor the truth inside you. Because despite what you may believe, you don’t need anyone’s validation or approval to feel what you feel. Your feelings are inherently right and true. They’re important and they matter — you matter — and it is more than okay to feel what you feel. Don’t let anyone, including yourself, convince you otherwise."

  2. Faveourite moments of 2013.

     

  3. Some words I read by Lykke Li at the end of 2012,

    But still so relevant for now.

    Happy New Year…

    '2012

    Victory, conquering, staggering loss, nothing, nothing, everything.

    Like walking through a tunnel searching for light and then it hits you and you feel nothing. 

    Like wanting the sea and getting a river. 

    Its been a strange one kids. 

    Im neither happy or sad its over but I am ready to move on. 

    Slowly.

    Patiently. 

    If there is one thing I’d like for the next year other then fireworks, love and pure creation it would be a little more self acceptance/love/forgiveness. 

    I’ve been carrying and nurturing the same wounds for so many years now and all the sudden I am a scarred woman laughing whilst crying, not fully realizing how much lighter things actually are. 

    Its almost like I miss my darkest days or maybe I haven’t found the right things to replace the dark with yet. 

    I still want more,

    more, 

    more, 

    of whatever I can get my hands on. 

    Or maybe its just me getting older. One year at a time. 

    Happy new year lovers. 

    May all our dreams come true so we can create new ones.

  4. “Lie on the bridge and watch the water flowing past. Or run, or wade through the swamp in your red boots. Or roll yourself up and listen to the rain falling on the roof. It’s very easy to enjoy yourself.”

    Sleight Bells show. Minneapolis, MN USA 2011

    I wish I could see Sleigh Bells & CSS at the same gig…

     
  6. Just tried to work out how many CSS gigs I have been to…I got to 23 but I know I’m forgetting a few…over 23 times! Crazy.
    But there’s something about them and I wouldn’t do it for any other band. I was 20 when I first saw them, trying to persuade myself I wasn’t gay…now I’m 26 and a lot has changed. I’m out to everyone and I really don’t care what people think. I’m so much happier and secure with myself and I really think music plays a big part in growing up/getting through things.
    I love this band.
    I know they’re not perfect but I don’t care, they are fun and happy and that’s all that matters.

     
  7. this never gets boring.
