:all the little things that open your eyes, altering you from the moment you find them. They're the inspiration you feel when you see the beauty in something ordinary. It's when you forget the big picture simply to notice the way the wind blows through your hair, or the smell before rain. It's a book that changes your life. It's midnight coffee, and night-long heart-to-hearts spent on rooftops. It's when simply existing makes you feel invincible.

‘You don’t actually get over things… you incorporate them. They become part of everything you are. I don’t mean that you walk about crying all the time. But you change.’
