“So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow.”—Attachments, Rainbow Rowell (via psych-facts)
“i don’t feel like i m in the right world, the right time the right place. there’s somewhere else i’m supposed to be at at the moment. something else i’m supposed to be doing. but i can’t seem to grasp what that thing is.”—(via psych-facts)
“I don’t want to get rid of the unpleasant things,
I want to learn how to deal with them.
I don’t want to numb the pain because I would only be blocking out the happiness to come as well,
And replacing it by feeling nothing.
I want to feel every mountain and valley because the landforms are always beautiful
No matter how low or high you are on life.
I claim the tears and the sorrow because they are necessary to ever appreciate anything good that comes my way.
I choose to feel the acid rain that pours upon my soul and all the broken hearts, Because I know someday the sun will reach through the darkened clouds and cradle my battered body in its arms, and let me know everything will be okay again.
And I’ll bandage my own broken hearts,
After learning that I don’t need anyone but myself to do it for me.
Some may call me crazy for embracing the terrible things, but I do.
I want poetry,
And sin and forgiveness,
And tumults and beacons of hope.
I claim them all.”—Jaelyn.Aragon “The Right to Emotions” (via jaelyn-aragon)
“There is an inverse relationship between the amount of stuff we own, and the amount of time we have to do the things that are important to us. Want more time? Want less stuff.”—Jordan Phoenix (via jordan-phoenix)
“Being alone is like being in total darkness.
And, I’d rather be there than in the warm embrace of the light, because eventually you start to see again in that total darkness.
But, you don’t see what only light can show you, you get to see what darkness can show you.
Something beyond reality. Something deeper.”—jenn satsune (via ohsatsune)
“In the beginner’s mind there is no thought, “I have attained something.” All self-centered thoughts limit our vast mind. When we have no thought of achievement, no thought of self, we are true beginners. Then we can really learn something. The beginner’s mind is the mind of compassion. When our mind is compassionate, it is boundless.”—Shunryu Suzuki (via mmaquotes)
