Train yourself to let go of everything you fear to lose.
Marry your best friend. I do not say that lightly. Really, truly find the strongest, happiest friendship in the person you fall in love with. Someone who speaks highly of you. Someone you can laugh with. The kind of laughs that make your belly ache, and your nose snort. The embarrassing, earnest, healing kind of laughs. Wit is important. Life is too short not to love someone who lets you be a fool with them. Make sure they are somebody who lets you cry, too. Despair will come. Find someone that you want to be there with you through those times. Most importantly, marry the one that makes passion, love, and madness combine and course through you. A love that will never dilute - even when the waters get deep, and dark.
This sexy motherfucker.
Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning.
i wonder if the instagram creators are sad to see their invention used like this
the world is heavy
but your bones
(just a cubic inch)
can hold 19,000 lbs
ounce for ounce
they are stronger than steel
atom for atom
you are more precious than diamond
and stars have died
so that you may live
you need to remember these things
when you say that you are weak
Know only this: Whoever I am, I am loved. Whatever I do, I am loved. No matter how I feel, I am loved. Whatever is happening around me, I am loved. Whatever is happening to me, I am loved. When I suffer abuse, I am loved. When I abuse, I am loved. When I am angry, I am loved. When I am at peace, I am loved. When I am afraid, I am loved. When I am happy, I am loved. When all that I do is wrong, I am loved. When noone cares, I am loved. When I feel only pain, I am loved. When I see only darkness, I am loved. When I see only Light, I am loved. When I despair, I am loved. When I rejoice, I am loved. When I lay dying, I am loved. When I am desperate, poor, cold, hungry and abandoned, I am loved. When I am wealthy, happy and successful, I am loved. However the world treats me, I am loved. However I feel about myself, I am loved. Whoever I believe myself to be, I am loved. I step through the veil of illusion now and I know only this: I am loved, I am loved, I am loved, I am loved. I am all that I am. So it is, so it shall be. Om. Shanti. Peace.
You’re incredibly brave. And you’re going to make it through this because you have a very strong heart. A heart that is capable of loving so much about life and people in a way you never dreamt a heart could love. And you’re beautiful in here. Your heart is so beautiful and someday someone is going to love that heart like it deserves to be loved.
But if a mirror ever makes
you should know
that it does
Or a scale. Or measuring tape. Or grades. Or the media or society or anything else because you cannot measure your self-worth by anything but experiences and memories and the life you’re living.
Your body is wonderful. Any other message is a lie.
