“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it, or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you cannot hate.”—C. JoyBell C. (via kushandwizdom)
“I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close.”—Pablo Neruda, 100 Love Sonnets (via kushandwizdom)
“This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And baby, I hate to say it, most of them - actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up because if you give up, you’ll never find your soulmate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”—Marilyn Monroe (via kushandwizdom)
“Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.”—Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching (via kushandwizdom)
“All the weight I had lost, I gained back.
I’m right back where I started.
Back to where I hate every inch of myself
Back to where I can’t fit into any nice clothes
Back to where I’m afraid to do things cause of my weight
Back to where I feel ashamed to see people
Back to where I need to loose it all again
I’m right back where I started.
And I can’t even stop fucking up to get back on track.”—(via madelthinbones)
“I’m sitting here thinking of all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I’m sorry for that. I’ll always love you because we grew up together. You helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know, there will be a piece of you in me always. And I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love. You’re my friend to the end.”—Her (via kushandwizdom)
“We are travelers on a cosmic journey,stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity. Life is eternal. We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share.This is a precious moment. It is a little parenthesis in eternity.”—Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist (via kushandwizdom)
“When the sky fills with bright colors I look towards the sunset to find you. I imagine you standing there next to me as we watch the sun disappear beyond the horizon. I imagine the soft sweet sound of your voice flowing the mid-summers breeze across the open body of water. And, I imagine the soft touch of your skin as we hold hands for the last time time until I can see you again.”—(via kushandwizdom)
