Something to touch:
Fleece blanket
Keys 
Necklace chain
Something to See:
Picture books
Photo Album
Digital folder of calming/comforting pictures
Puzzles
Something to Hear:
Rainymood.com
Relax Melodies
Youtube Playlists
Instrumentals
Something to Smell (if applicable):
Scented candles
Lotions
Certain objects in room (i.e. pillow, blanket, etc)
Something to Taste:
Mints
Hard Candies
Oral sensory objects
Calming Techniques and Other Stuff
Rocking - allows brain to re-hydrate; so-called “Instinctual” soothing method
Feel-Your-Seat - Quite literally. What are you sitting on? What does it feel like? How is your body responding to you sitting?
Belly-Breathing - Place one hand on your chest and one hand on your belly. Take slow, deep breaths focusing on making sure your belly hand raises higher when you breathe in. Do this for seven counts.
Anyone have any more?

44% of the audience of Guardians of the Galaxy is female and all the speculation states that women went to see it for Chris Pratt’s body. I don’t think that’s fair. Maybe (and this is crazy) they just like kickass movies with space shit and explosions. Maybe women can do things without men being their motivation. Maybe.

Bless you

Local little corner shops are my favorite thing. 
This book store is in someone’s house and it’s the cutest little thing.

"1) Learn to put on your bracelets and zip up your dresses by yourself. There will be times when you will be alone.
2) Get on a long plane ride. Look out the window. Understand the immensity of our world. Understand your insignificance. Understand your absolute importance.
3) Press the send button. If you don’t say it now, you never will.
4) Do not sneer at happiness or roll your eyes at sadness. Be aware that apathy is not healthy.
5) You are more than the amount of people who want to have sex with you.
6) That pit in your stomach when he doesn’t text you back, it shouldn’t be there. No one should be able to control you like that.
7) Shopping is cathartic. Buy the shoes and deal with one-ply toilet paper for a while.
8) It will get better, but it will never be perfect. Learn to live through the small moments of happiness. When they disappear, remember they will resurface.
9) I promise that cookie will not change anything (except that it will make you smile).
10) Please, please, take care of yourself. You are everything to somebody. You are everything to your self. That alone is enough."
