trying to control the wind.
Calm your storms,
things will be
as they are meant to,
and no amount of
or pounds shed
can change that.”—Michelle K., Controlling. (via michellekpoems)
“Find life experiences and swallow them whole. Travel. Meet many people. Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. Try everything. Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life.”—Lawrence K. Fish (via taylorross)
“Sometimes people think they know you. They know a few facts about you, and they piece you together in a way that makes sense to them. And if you don’t know yourself very well, you might even believe that they are right. But the truth is, that isn’t you. That isn’t you at all.”—Leila Sales This Song Will Save Your Life (via ohfairies)
“I admit it’s tempting to wish for the perfect boss, or the perfect parent, or the perfect outfit, but the best anyone of us can do is not quit. Play the hand we’ve been given, and accessorize the outfit we’ve got.”—Sex and the city. Season 4 Episode 17
In Arabic, they say Qalb 3ala Qalb, which roughly translates to “hearts in sync”. In essence, it’s talking about telepathy, and the unspoken words, and how they are not necessary in order to bond. What I love about it most is that it isn’t restrictive to romantic love, but instead it is open to any love at all. You would say it when you bump into someone you adore unexpectedly, at the grocery store maybe, or in the middle of traffic. Or even when you say something at the same time as someone else. The idea is that these things happen because your hearts are connected, and that somewhere along this telepathic journey, they bumped into, or brushed past one another, and that, because they were meant to meet, they always, always will. They will always find a way to each other. That’s comforting to me. (via thelittlephilosopher)
“Most believe there are two types of people who go into a crucible; the ones who grow stronger from the experience and survive it, and the ones that die.
But there’s a third type. The ones who learn to love the fire. They choose to stay in their crucible because its easier to embrace the pain when it’s all they know anymore.”—Arrow
“Do not settle for less than exactly what you want. Your heart’s desires are there for a reason. Chase them. Pursue them relentlessly. Do not lose sight of your goals. They are your very reason for being.”—Franki Durbin (via artistsuffer)
“Write. Start writing today. Start writing right now. Don’t write it right, just write it — and then make it right later. Give yourself the mental freedom to enjoy the process, because the process of writing is a long one. Be wary of ‘writing rules’ and advice. Do it your way.”—Tara Moss (via wethinkwedream)
