I love. I have loved. I will love.

It took me a long time to realize this:
We get to choose what defines us.

well this just put the biggest smile on my face. thank you so much! i think you’re a great human too.
i’m actually not a big starbucks drinker at all, i’ll usually have the seasonal drinks once (i had a pumpkin spice latte and a peppermint mocha) but 95% of the time my order is just a regular black dark roast! and i’ll usually opt to go to a smaller or more artisanal cafe when i can because there’s so many awesome ones all over montreal. i prefer to make my coffee at home because i’m awesome at it and because ~*~cOffEE sn0b~*~
we have a few! my mom and I always make homemade caramel corn together, with an old fashioned air popper and my cat goes bonkers while the corn is popping. on Christmas Day I play carols on the piano while my family sings and it’s so cute and like a lifetime movie, haha. we go for Chinese food on New Year’s Eve (is that a thing other people do?) and we have lobster on Christmas Eve.
i started doing it because i saw a pinterest board for “yoga for runners” on the fitness section! i did the poses in it and started doing them after each run, and then i started really enjoying it and wanting to do more so i looked up youtube videos and went to friday night karma classes at a studio near my apartment.
oh man this is tough because i love me some men
but i’m gonna have to go with calf muscles
which is a weird way to go but like. i just really dig them, always have. i think it may have to do with my affinity for athletic/runner guys.
haha okay this is confusing because my middle name is actually rachael. technically. my name is in a weird order, so it’s “corra dee rachael” but i’ve always gone by rachael, and my mom calls me rachael dee. no one calls me corra.
basically i have a lot of names and they are all interchangeable. and people are always like “oh but corra is so cool why don’t you go by that” and like, i didn’t choose rachael haha this is just what i got dealt!
hey! there are definitely more days like that now that it’s winter than when it was summer. i love running in the heat and i only ever had to talk myself into a run once or twice from march-october because i enjoy it.
but i really don’t like the cold or being cold so i have to actually talk myself into it lately, and the thing i do is this: i make myself get dressed. once i’m dressed to run i feel obligated to run, and getting out the door is that much easier. and honestly getting out of the house is the hardest part. if i start running and i am really just hating it and hating life, i’ll come home, because i don’t want to torture myself. but that veryyyy rarely happens because once i’m out there and doing it i like it, it’s just that initial foot out the door that’s hard. i hope that helps, and i’m so glad you’re getting healthier! mad props.
You will learn that the saddest word in the English language is stay. Whether it’s your mother’s voice whispering it before you leave for college, or your ex-lover’s desperate screams as you walk out of the house, it will always be a hard word to hear. Sometimes you should listen to it, other times you shouldn’t. Trust yourself. Go with your gut."
