“People who are meant to be, always find their way back. It might take minutes, or hours, days, weeks, or even years, but they will always find a way back to each other, no matter what.”—i know it’ll still be me and you in the end. (via tohavescarlessskin)
“So here’s my advice: Study broadly and without fear. Learn a language if you can, because that will make your life more interesting. Read a little bit every day. But more importantly, surround yourself with people who you like and make cool stuff with them. In the end, what you do isn’t going to be nearly as interesting or important as who you do it with.”—John Green (via agentlemenscoup)
“Those who love you are not fooled by mistakes you have made, or by dark images you hold about yourself. They remember your beauty when you feel ugly; your wholeness when you are broken; your innocence when you feel guilty; and your purpose when you are confused.”—Alan Cohen (via awelltraveledwoman)
“Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.”—Anne Lamott (via jerfreyy)
Can we just talk about how exhausting dating is when you have an anxiety disorder. It’s like I want to go on a date with you but holy shit going on a date is also the last thing I want to do ever let me make a million excuses and then you’ll think I’m not into you and stop asking or we’ll finally go on a date and then I’ll basically hyperventilate on my drive home about all the stupid embarrassing shit I’ve done and it’ll haunt me for the next several weeks/months/the rest of my life.
“We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.”— Thich Nhat Hanh (via thatkindofwoman)
