"As I grow older, much older, I will experience many things, and I will hit rock bottom again and again. Again and again I will suffer; again and again I will get back on my feet. I will not be defeated. I won’t let my spirit be destroyed."
Banana Yoshimoto, Kitchen (キッチン)

"I want to get more comfortable being uncomfortable. I want to get more confident being uncertain. I don’t want to shrink back just because something isn’t easy. I want to push back, and make more room in the area between I can’t and I can."
Kristin Armstrong (via perfect-night)

Taken from MANTRAS zine
This zine is a culmination of how i got myself thru/still getting myself thru things and also things that i love and things that make me happy, mostly Stevie Nicks. I hope i don’t come off as someone who has her shit together, most of this zine is me yelling at myself and it’s really difficult to follow the directions that i give to myself, like “TAKE WHAT’S YOURS” and “DON’T HIDE!” it’s very difficult and on most days i don’t follow these directions and i fail completely. But i still yell at myself because it’s necessary that i always have these things etched in me so i have something to hold on to when shit hits the fan. - Fabiola
Here’s to the oncoming Autumn.
My favorite month; my favorite season— here it comes!

"'But what was the point?' I demanded, sitting up with a groan. 'I nearly went mad, I didn't understand any of it, and I've as good as forgotten it all again.'
‘It’s always the same with demanding literature,’ Homuncolossus replied as he helped me to my feet."
