"Dear future child
If it’s 3am and you find yourself in a world of complete despair
Please do not turn to strangers on the internet for solace as I did
Please climb onto my bed
And I will hold you until the demons sleep
If it is Thursday morning and you are too sad to move
I won’t force you
I will buy ice cream and we will watch your favourite tv show and I will remind you of your importance
If you feel as if you have no purpose
I will remind you that you were created entirely with love and every pain you feel, I feel too
When you’re sure you can’t go on anymore
I will tell you that when I was 21 I searched for peace at the bottom of a vodka bottle chased by a bottle of pain killers
But that five years later
When you were placed in my arms in the delivery room
I realised that you were why I had been holding on
Without realising it, you saved me, do you know how amazing that is?
So if you ever feel like grabbing that vodka bottle, put it down, we will get in the car and I will drive until the sky turns magenta
I will show you how the sun rises every morning to encourage you to rise too
Sweetheart I refuse to be unaware of your sufferings
As my mother was to mine."

Your mental health is my priority. (via be-fearless-brave-and-kind)

American Football - “Never Meant”

Let’s just forget
Everything said
And everything we did
Best friends and better halves

Goodbyes
And the autumn night
When we realized
We were falling out of love

There were some things
That were said
That weren’t meant
But were said

Like we never did
Not to be
Overly
Dramatic

I just think it’s best
‘Cause you can’t miss what you forget

So let’s just pretend
Everything and anything
Between you and me
Was never meant

"People always talk about how dangerous it is to Hitchhike. 
How everyone is super sketchy, unwelcoming, and how around every corner and on every highway there’s someone waiting to stab kill or rape you. I don’t speak from common knowledge, but from experience.
After having traveled literally thousands of miles in this fashion- I can tell you that’s complete and total bullshit. Yes, some people are dangerous. But those dangerous people are everywhere- and you’ve got the same level or risk walking home from your friends house after a party at 3am as you do getting on a freight train or in a strangers car. 

America is not dead. Humans are not evil.
The vast majority- are entirely afraid of eachother, because we’ve been trained and conditioned to be from a young age. One of the scariest things I’ve ever been told growing up is not to talk to strangers.
And for about 17 years of my life, I didn’t. I thought all strangers wanted to kill or kidnap me. Then one day I realized that was bullshit, and began to talk to other human beings outside of my social circle. Strangers. That started happening about 2 years ago- and to be honest: the last 2 years of my life have been the best so far. 

We’re so afraid to talk, interact, and trust other people that we’ve caged ourselves. When just like you and I, most Americans, and Humans- are incredibly thoughtful. Compassionate. Most people WANT to help other people, to meet new characters, to have new experiences. But they’re too afraid to leave their safety net. It takes a certain kind of person to hitchhike, and it takes a certain kind of person to pick up a hitchhiker.
So far, I’ve met some wild, strange, and incredibly intelligent people. 
The vast majority of my world view has completely changed based upon the conversations I’ve had with them. Travelling in this manner has been what’s humbled me, given me confidence, allowed me to grow, and opened me up to so many other opportunities. It’s even allowed me to meet people on a whim that ended up being the same characters who’ve helped me network and gain more distance into my career as a photographer. It’s single handedly been one of the biggest blessings in my life. Yet every time I go on a trip like this, I’m told I’m crazy. 
I’m not, I’m just curious. I get bored. I need to meet people, to have new experiences, and when you’re dirt broke(or just bored) this is the best way to travel.”

All of the above photographs were taken on a single trip- from Bellingham, Washington to Crater Lake, Oregon and back. The goal of these photographs strung together was simply to help see the struggle, humor, and beauty that comes with hitchhiking.)
