Your life begins to change the day you take responsibility for it.
I am overwhelmed with things I ought to have written about and never found the proper words.
- Virginia Woolf, Diaries Volume One 1915-1919 (via larmoyante)
You are my refuge and my shield; I have put my hope in your word.
You have called me higher, You have called me deeper, and I’ll go where you will lead me.
- Called Me Higher // All Sons & Daughters (via kvtes)
We’re just fragile machines programmed with a false sense of our own importance. And every now and then the universe sends a reminder that we don’t really matter to it…
A lot of people are driven by the belief that they’re special, that they matter, that there is a reason they’re here. And they’re sustained by their motivation to have this belief affirmed, which is why when someone challenges it, they want to take them down, whether through gossip, ostracism, aggression, or terrorism. To me, that sounds like a lot of work and not much fun. All I believe is what I know for certain: that I’m alive, so I might as well make the most of it.
Nobody can teach me who I am. You can describe parts of me, but who I am - and what I need - is something I have to find out myself.
