You can always buy a seat at the popular table, but that doesn’t make it valuable.

See the months they don’t matter it’s the days I can’t take
When the hours move to minutes and I’m seconds away



Marrying young is not the end of my freedom. It means I want to travel and see the world, but with her by my side. It means I still like drinking in bars and dancing in clubs, but stumbling home with her at 2am and eating pizza in our underwear. It means I know that I want to kiss those lips every morning, and every night before bed. If you see marriage as the end of your ‘freedom’, you’re doing it wrong.

Well this was just beautiful

I want you to promise me something. If you love someone, you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. Even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground. You say it, and you say it loud. And then you go from there.

There are many teachers who could ruin you. Before you know it you could be a pale copy of this teacher or that teacher. You have to evolve on your own.

In a controversy the instant we feel anger we have already ceased striving for the truth, and have begun striving for ourselves.
Buddha (via kushandwizdom)

I’m happy
And I’m unique
And I don’t have to subscribe to a crowd.
I’m lovely and I’m free.

I like me, and as long as I like me I don’t care if anyone else does because I’m the person I’m alone with.

And I’m happy. And I get to have the things I love about myself. And I’m so far beyond taken it for granted.

I still get my eye for detail.
I have my skin.
And my freckles.
I GET to be me… and everyday I’m more and more grateful for that.

Thank god for freedom.

I can’t abandon
the person I used to be
so I carry her
