mind of a black crayon

Ultimately this life is all we have. As meaningless, as agony-ridden, as deeply ridiculous as it is, we have nothing else.

So why throw it away? Why not take some small pleasure in a little blossom shyly hovering to the ground?

This is your chance to rediscover yourself.

What a waste of time if you fritter it away.

-from Biting Anorexia by Lucy Howard-Taylor

I'm trying to keep this in my mind. I've frittered away so much time with the belief that getting as sick as possible is the most worthwhile and admirable quest, taking the most strength of mind and body.
