I am made of rain and starlight. 

I am made of pastel flowers and ocean water. 

I am made of the words written in books and the paint smeared on a canvas. 

I am made of fairy lights and rainbows.

I am made of vinyl records and fairy tale dreams.

I am made of the light of the moon and the ink in old-fashioned pens. 

I am made of sunsets and sea-foam. 

I am made of dark chocolate and snowflakes.

I am made of sunshine and shadow and everything in between.


I am made of many things and sometimes I forgot this. Sometimes I feel incredibly insignificant and worthless. Like my voice is just another shout in the void, along with everyone else's. Sometimes I feel like nobody likes me, or nobody cares. Sometimes I feel like everyone else can do everything better than I. Sometimes the realization that I am finite crashes down on me and I forget everything else in the crushing moments where it feels like I can't breathe; when I become alarmingly aware of my heart beating in my chest. Sometimes I forget that I am made of so many wonderful things. That I am here. That I mean something. That I have a voice, and things to say, and though they may not come out as eloquently as I want them to, they will come out anyways and that's okay. 

Because I'm made of starlight, and rain, and moonlight, and sunshine, and shadow. I am made of everything I love, and everything I don't yet know. 

Sometimes I forgot that I am made of so many beautiful things. 


  1. Absolutely, incredibly stunning. <3 I love this idea, and I may have to use it, with credit, of course, if you don't mind.

    1. Ahhh, thank you. <3 <3 <3
      Of course. I'd love to see you do this type of post. ^.^

  2. You never cease to amaze me. I wish those six words were enough to sum up how much you inspire each and every one of us, but I know they aren't. Just...thank you for being you I guess. <3

    1. Those six words meant more to me than you will ever know. Thank you. <3

  3. Everyone's so complex and beautiful and while we may not realise this, and while so many people may not care, we just need to know it.

  4. This is so gorgeous, and such a wonderful idea. We all need the reminder that not only are we gorgeous in ourselves, but we are made of gorgeous things too :)


  5. Adi, I'm positively speechless.
    This is just so wonderful. I feel like we all need to be reminded that we're all made of miraculous things, not just grades or dress sizes or whatever. We are so much more and you captured that perfectly. I swear, I can't put how much I adore this into words. Please never stop being your incredible self, okay?
