When you start to feel afraid to go after the things you want, the dreams you dream, the love you desire remember you can have all the wishes of your heart and the hopes of your soul if you just believe in yourself. Believe in your light. Believe in your worth. Believe in your strength. Believe in your capability. You can do it all, just believe in yourself and keep going. Eventually you’ll get there. Believe that. I do!
We can spend our lives letting the world tell us who we are. Sane or insane. Saints or sex addicts. Heroes or victims. Letting history tell us how good or bad we are. Letting our past decide our future. Or we can decide for ourselves. And maybe it’s our job to invent something better.
Chuck Palahniuk (via shetakesflight)
‘I love you’ means that I accept you for the person that you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you and stand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you even when you’re in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you’re down, not just when you’re fun to be with. ‘I love you’ means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not to let go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping you feel the same way for me.
If you look up the definition of beauty in Webster’s dictionary, you’ll notice that…no where does it say you have to be more emaciated than every starving child in Africa to be beautiful.
Beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, ethnicities, and ages. Beauty is unique. Beauty is quirky, fun, and strange.
Think about it, if we were all size -0, cookie cutter barbies, with all with a choice only of three hair styles, all with the same silicon double-Ds, the same, “clean, fresh” makeup…are we really beautiful?
Embrace your unique beauty. People will remember your uniqueness much longer than a set of purchased boobs.
Light and Love,
I woke up this morning
With peace in my heart
Knowing that everything
Is going to be alright
Everything makes sense
This is my second chance
At living my life
I must follow my path
Even if I walk alone
This is my time to fall
Then pick myself up again
I don’t have all the answers
And that is more than fine
I just have to give it a try
Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant with the weak and wrong. Sometime in your life, you will have been all of these.
Siddhartha Gautama (via myquotelibrary)
So, the compassionate person is usually sweet. Quick to love, slow to anger. Feels very much that they can make a difference in anyone’s life. I love this type of person, because they are always pretty happy. They’re like a good painting in a room or something. Meaning, you don’t always have to know they are there, but when you turn your head and notice them, you just feel better.
