Thank you love :) means so much.

titf2013 said: Hey Payton, What's your favorite part about being in Texas? Least fav?

I guess my least favorite part is that there’s not much of a fall season. It goes from being too hot to too cold rather quickly. And my favorite… I guess that my immediate family lives here too because I love them. Haha thanks for the question.

beauty is not quantifiable.

you are not measurable on a scale of 1 to 10.

you are infinity.

you are beyond all bounds.

that tape you wrap so tautly around the small of your waist could read 24” or 34”

either way, it’s just a string of numbers

…isn’t it?

beauty can be big and beauty can be small and beauty cannot be determined in units of measure

beauty is in who you are. in how you justify what you believe in, regardless of what you believe in. beauty is that you believe in something, anything. beauty is passion. beauty is self-respect. beauty is the desire to give. beauty is in the scrambled words you scribble at 5 am when your eyelids are heavy weights and your heart is falling into the depths of you and perhaps you are sinking. beauty is in your unspoken thoughts between gaps of conversation. beauty is in the unseen.

the parts of us that people should be most exposed to are the ones originally dismissed.

the world is flawed and humans have blemished perceptions and we often disregard significant signs of beauty unless we first find value in the slighter ones

in the numbers.

but please try to remember that the size of your hips and the number on the tag of your pants and if you ordered two scoops of ice cream rather than one and if you woke up the next morning feeling like a pig even though you looked

exactly

the same

…should not matter.

you are much more than a calculation.

love yourself.
