I don’t care. I don’t want to do it anymore.
Sometimes I breathe you in and I know you know.
Tori Amos (via kari-shma)
I do know.
Everything we do is infused with the energy with which we do it. If we’re frantic, life will be frantic. If we’re peaceful, life will be peaceful. And so our goal in any situation becomes inner peace.
|—||Marianne Williamson (via unconditionedconsciousness)|
But eventually you learn that you just can’t save anyone no matter how hard you try. People have to want to change, they have to want to do better, and to be better. All you can do is love people and pray for them and be present when they need you. But you can’t save them; at the end of the day, we all have to save ourselves.
You never knew exactly how much space you occupied in people’s lives.
|—||F. Scott Fitzgerald (via wordsthat-speak)|
No one ever tells you that you’re never going to feel grown up.
|—||Saroyan (via shetakesflight)|
Cherish your solitude. Take trains by yourself to places you have never been. Sleep out alone under the stars. Learn how to drive a stick shift. Go so far away that you stop being afraid of coming back. Say no when you don’t want to do something. Say yes when your instincts are strong, even if everyone around you disagrees. Decide whether you want to be liked or admired. Decide if fitting in is more important than finding out what you’re doing here.

If you surrender to the wind, you can ride it.
Toni Morrison (via girlwithoutwings)
And it can take you to the most glorious places
