“When it’s been months now and still every time you see “new text message” with his name attached you can’t help but smile. When you can’t stay mad at him once you see him, but still fight to hold a grudge. When you go to sleep every night smiling because you know it’s one day closer to seeing him. When you wake up smiling no matter what happened the night before simply because he is in your life. When you get butterflies every single time you are going to see him. When you hear a love song and understand every word because it relates perfectly … that’s love.”—Anonymous (via thatslove)
“We all get lost once in a while, sometimes by choice, sometimes due to forces beyond our control. When we learn what it is our soul needs to learn, the path presents itself. Sometimes we see the way out but wander further and deeper despite ourselves; the fear, the anger or the sadness preventing us returning. Sometimes we prefer to be lost and wandering, sometimes it’s easier. Sometimes we find our own way out. But regardless, always, we are found.”—Cecelia Ahern (Thanks for the Memories)
“Perhaps we don’t like what we see: our hips, our loss of hair, our shoe size, our dimples, our knuckles too big, our eating habits, our disposition. We have disclosed these things in secret, likes and dislikes, behind doors with locks, our lonely rooms, our messy desks, our empty hearts, our sudden bursts of energy, our sudden bouts of depression. Don’t worry. Put away your mirrors and your beauty magazines and your books on tape. There is someone right here who knows you more than you do, who is making room on the couch, who is fixing a meal, who is putting on your favorite record, who is listening intently to what you have to say, who is standing there with you, face to face, hand to hand, eye to eye, mouth to mouth. There is no space left uncovered. This is where you belong.”—Sufjan Stevens (via poeticheartache)
“Theres only so many times you can allow someone to let you down before you can’t handle the disappointment anymore. When things change, people change. There’s a point in life where you get tired of chasing everyone trying to fix things, but it’s not giving up, you’ve got to do what’s right for you, even if it hurts.”—(via theflightout)
“The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.”—Alan Bennett (via notwritenow) (via quote-book) (via wheredalinesoverlap)
“I am convinced that no one loses anyone,
because no one owns anyone.
That is the true experience of freedom:
having the most important thing in the world
without owning it.”—Paulo Coelho (via kari-shma)
“Whatever happens in our lives is what’s supposed to happen. That’s what I try to believe, but no one can prove that’s the truth. Life is uncertain. Sometimes it takes you down roads you never ever thought you would go, ones that make you wanna turn around and start over. But sometimes the uncertainty leads you exactly where you need to be; it helps you discover yourself and makes you that much more wise. It can be the worst thing, or it can be the greatest thing. However, the pathways are not put infront of you to follow. They are in your heart; they always have been. Cause at some point, we all have to listen to what our heart is saying. We can try to block it out and forget about it, but sooner or later a day is gonna come where it speaks louder than words. That’s when we need to come to acceptance, gather our missing pieces, and leave the ones that don’t fit. That’s when we begin the journey. But see, we can’t just follow our heart. We have to chase it.”—(via theflightout)
This may sound all cheesy but I am really happy to have you around, I am the luckiest girl to have someone like you in my life. Like, I never thought that someone would actually be this patient with me, who can keep up with me even if I’m the busiest and even if I train so much and spend most of…
You missed out on the girl who loves you. The one that doesn't care about your imperfections. The girl that sees only the good in you. The one that supports you in everything that you do, even if they're stupid. Sure, she's not perfect, but she's not afraid of being herself. And you know why you missed out on her? Because you're too blind to notice what's right in front of you.
Sometimes, when you're in love, it's okay to be stupid and risk it all. 'Cause the feeling of not trying hurts a lot, right? The every day frustration, the what-if's and could-be's... It'll knock at the back of your mind and annoy you in every opportunity it could find. It would put you all over the place, turn you into someone but your whole self. But sometimes you also think that it's not only about being stupid, and it's not only because it hurts that you're doing it. You know you're not being completely illogical, because you know that that's just how love is supposed to be.
