Catherynne M. Valente, on sharing your story with the world. (via lettersandlight)

(via evolvingessence)

Write something true. Write something frightening. Write something close to the bone. You are on this planet to tell the story of what you saw here. What you heard. What you felt. What you learned. Any effort spent in that pursuit cannot be wasted.

Any way that you can tell that story more truly, more vividly, more you-ly, is the right way.

Love is warming.
Please take a step back from
anything called “love” that’s leaving you cold.

J.S. (via jspark3000)

(via somewhereinmakitownz)

When you can let go of the idols of relationships, wealth, intellect, success, beauty, and career: you can actually enjoy them for what they are. You don’t expect salvation or redemption from them. You don’t crush them with expectations or demand them to serve your every whim. You instead see them as gifts, as privileges, as an honor to respect and to cherish. Treat the earthly as divine and you will lose both; treat the divine as your treasure and the earth will be just as beautiful.

"Easy Love" by Joseph Cook (via jnc-ink)

(via reneelajolie)

I want an easy marriage.
A low-maintenance friendship
An easy-going relationship.
I like people who require little
to be fulfilled.
I hate pressure. There’s a thin line
between pressuring and demanding.
I hate be demanded to do anything.
If you’re pressuring me to do this or that
because you feel that you need it so that
we can be either this or that, then you
are basically demanding me to please you.
I am a willful servant.
As I choose servility.
Never will I be forced to my knees to please anyone.
I love comfortable silences and mutual turn-ups.
I love leaving my comfort zone in the comfort of another.
Simple, easy, and quiet are demonized but I think it’s heavenly
to fall in a love that’s simple, easy, and quiet.

Oprah Winfrey.  (via curvesincolor)

(via neeinspire)

You will be wounded many times in your life. You’ll make mistakes. Some people will call them failures but I have learned that failure is really God’s way of saying, “Excuse me, you’re moving in the wrong direction.” It’s just an experience, just an experience.

Gratitude (pt.one)

I had to stop and thank God for the abundance of experiences that have taught me great lessons, but most importantly provided me with wisdom. Because of those experiences I know better. I fill myself up with wisdom on a daily basis. I rather have wisdom/my gift of discernment over any materialistic substance. I now understand why he takes me through certain situations. I may not understand at the beginning, but I see the bigger picture later.
