missdondonyan One day, you’ll see that the person who decided to jump ship was never the one who put the wind in your sails; You will always be able to explore the world outside of them. 4d

missdondonyan Help me love you, won’t you darling? For I am a simple woman, always in need of a gentle hand and a heart of patience. Let me learn what it means to soothe your pain, and what it is that you seek at the end of the day; because I’m trying, and I’ll always be wanting to love you more.

missdondonyan “Listen. To live is to be marked. To live is to change, to acquire the words of a story, and that is the only celebration we mortals really know. In perfect stillness, frankly, I’ve only found sorrow.”

missdondonyan For one minute walk outside, stand there in silence, look up at the sky, and contemplate how amazing life is. You never know who or what you'll run into. #YNPinstameet 2w

missdondonyan To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. This weekend was just that, and how incredible it feels is difficult to put simply into words.
Thank you @chrisburkard and @wilderness_culture for hosting a fantastic Instameet. And thank you with all my heart to @djaeoutlaw and @matthewdowling for graciously pulling me under your wings and allowing me to fly with you. I am forever grateful to have had the opportunity to meet such beautiful souls and connect with my forever sister @carolyngodina. Cheers to community! #MCandBrosemite #YNPinstameet

missdondonyan “Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours.”

missdondonyan The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away.

missdondonyan Wasn’t that the point of life? To find someone to share it with? 
And if you got that part right, how far wrong could you go? If you were standing next to the person you loved more than everything else, wasn’t everything else just scenery?
