"Maybe some people just aren’t meant to be in our lives forever. Maybe some people are just passing through. It’s like some people just come through our lives to bring us something: a gift, a blessing, a lesson we need to learn. And that’s why they’re here. You’ll have that gift forever."
Danielle Steel (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
"The trouble with life isn’t that there is no answer, it’s that there are so many answers."
Ruth Benedict (via leslieseuffert)
"Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different."
C.S. Lewis (via ewcersei)


"In any given moment we have two options: to step forward into growth or step back to safety." — Abraham Maslow

In what direction will you step?
"People always say that it hurts at night and apparently screaming into your pillow at 3am is the romantic equivalent of being heartbroken. But sometimes it’s 9am on a Tuesday morning and you’re standing at the kitchen bench waiting for the toast to pop up. And the smell of dusty sunlight and earl gray tea makes you miss him so much you don’t know what to do with your hands."
Rosie Scanlan (via middlenameconfused)

Maybe we aren’t meant to be with the real love of our lives. Maybe that would be too much. 

Or maybe one day we will all stop making excuses. 

"Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining."

Nice try, Jackie.

Words of advice: Stop thinking so much.

"I just want someone who won’t get annoyed when I text them six times or in all caps. Someone I can go on long drives with and can sing along to the radio with. Someone I can eat pizza with at 2am and kiss at 6pm. Someone who chooses me everyday and never thinks twice about it."
