hey sorry for spamming yall just now
i needed to have a long talk with myself
because i hadn't been right for a while
not as good to you as i wanted to be
not as loving and joyful as i wanted to be
but i still mean all of those things
and i still am them
so off go my mutes and blocks
and if there's anything we should talk about, something i should say sorry to you for
just let me know and i will
i'm all here again
and i want you to know that everything's going to be ok

After all, we must remember that this earthly existence is but a short sojourn in our journey through Samsara. The Buddha says there is no one on earth who has not in a previous existence been a mother, a father, a sister, a brother, a child to us. So let us suffuse the whole world with metta, with karuna and with mudita. This is why the Brahma Viharas are described as appamanna—illimitables (all embracing). They are so-called because they find no...limit. They embrace all living beings.
All my life I've been on the verge of something. I'm almost becoming a concert violinist and I run away to the races. I'm almost a good jockey and I go overweight. I'm almost a champion prizefighter and my eyes go bad. Now I've got it, now I've got what I'm going to be.

at one of the schools we visited to do workshops and donate instruments there was food in the corner of the classroom- fruit, cereal, and boxes of hot things. I didn't remember having that as a kid and I asked-
The principal explained there is real poverty and they make sure the children eat. They have 700 kids and they feed them breakfast, lunch, and a hot meal to take home.
seven hundred children every day.
I fought back the lump in my throat, and was grateful.
Elevate the headstrong dead long halo
Caught up in our skin, gotta fight the grind
I can make your day glow sun to rainbow
Colour in your step, let me lose your mind
Animate the air with a stone cold question
Do you have the time? Do you hate your life?
Now I'm locking eyes with a silent stranger
Don't run, don't hide
And I can feel the static rising up and out your mouth
We're making waves of conversation
Got a rush of energy

Hi, my name is Lee and I'm an injured, mentally ill transgirl with no money. My mother and I are on limited income (due to me receiving a back injury at work and them offering the barest minimum support) and have bills mounting up.
It's the old "we'll take the money from your account, oops you didn't have it, well lets just put an overdraft charge on that" spiral of bills.
My paypal is firstname.lastname@example.org, and if you can send even a few dollars, it'd be really appreciated
Thanks for reading

Nobody is perfect. Without mistakes there are no successes. Humans are messy and clumsy and that's what makes them beautiful.
"The curtain fluttered again. It would have been carried on one of those colliding currents of air, the warmth heaven-bound, the cold crashing to earth. I squinted out the window at the mustard-smear sky, with its toxic promise of streaming eyes and a smarting throat: ‘that great yellow eye of the Pei-king sky’ the poet Victor Segalen called it over a century ago, when it was simply Gobi desert sand, and not smog, that made it so."

I WENT TO SLEEP LATE. NOT OKAY WITH THAT. I'VE BEEN TRYING TO REPAIR MY SLEEP SCHEDULE. IT'S HARD. I SWEAR I'M MORE NATURALLY SUITED TO BEING NOCTURNAL BUT THE WORLD ISN'T GOOD FOR THOSE PEOPLE.
BUT NOW TO THE IMPORTANT THING.
A REMINDER: YOU ARE WORTHWHILE YOU ARE NOT USELESS!
NO ONE IS USELESS!
CHANGE IS POSSIBLE.
HANG IN THERE.
