"People tend to be generous when sharing their nonsense, fear, and ignorance. And while they seem quite eager to feed you their negativity, please remember that sometimes the diet we need to be on is a spiritual and emotional one. Be cautious with what you feed your mind and soul. Fuel yourself with positivity and let that fuel propel you into positive action."
Steve Maraboli (via wickedbabylon)
be careful who you share your dreams/ambitions/goals with.
"Going into my twenties, I seemed to have forgotten that I was extraordinary. Perhaps it was because I had been out the game for awhile or because I hadn’t looked at myself in the mirror long enough or because I stopped praying and going to church or because life was just moving so fast I was getting too caught up in the moments that blur ones memory. Whatever the case, somewhere along the way, I had forgotten I was extraordinary. Until one day, I realized I was being treating like I was regular. Like I was a box to be checked. Like I was dispensable. I must have believed it because one day I looked up, and there I was, yearning to be treated like the person I should have been treated as from the jump. And then I had my revelation. I am NOT regular. I am not to be treated as if I am regular. And if I am just some box to be checked, some moment to be collected, some ambiguous game to be played, then you are not worth my time. Going into my twenties, I was reminded of my worth. I was reminded that I was not to be treated like the stars. Or even the sun, or the moon. I was to be looked at, and treated as if I were the entire universe before you. Never allow yourself to see you and treat you as only regular. You are NOT regular. You are extraordinary. Know that you are worth the sky and beyond."
"Don’t equate the presence of God with a good mood or a pleasant temperament. God is near whether you are happy or not."

Dear Universe, I ask to be surrounded by abundant, flowing, limitless love. I ask to be around people who see my divinity and support me in sharing my light with the world. I want genuine love, genuine joy, genuine passion and genuine support by my friends, mentors, and family members. I’m ready to receive. I’m ready to give the same in return. I am ready.
"I want to be a woman who lives totally abandoned to the first commandment: to love my Lord, my God, with all my heart. I don’t want the reputation that I love God, I don’t want to write songs about loving God, I don’t want to talk about loving God. I want to actually love God. When I close my eyes, I want my heart to move. When I close my eyes and I look at Him, I want to feel alive on the inside. I want to look at Him with a fire in my heart and it’s real."

"I can’t be shaken anymore, by anyone. I’ve got to that point in my life that if you’re not a good person, and you can’t make me feel good with love and life, then fuck off, basically."

"Intimacy is the capacity to be rather weird with someone - and finding that that’s ok with them."
Alain de Botton (via deathbeforediet)
i don’t want a relationship with someone who is dependant on me
because who will i depend on when i am weak?
that is why i am a whole person dating another whole person
we have to be strong on our own in order to help each other
an imbalance in a relationship with someone you feel like you need instead of just want
is not healthy, in my opinion
Never been interested in looking for men that like “girls like me”
Only been interested in men that like me for me
