"I will only let you touch me
if your hands are so full of intention
that every brush of your palms
feels like you writing a novel on my skin."
Azra. T, Braile (via ughpoems)

"Wouldn’t it be powerful if you fell in love with yourself so deeply that you would do just about anything if you knew it would make you happy? This is precisely how much life loves you and wants you to nurture yourself. The deeper you love yourself, the more the universe will affirm your worth. Then you can enjoy a lifelong love affair that brings you the richest fulfillment from inside out."
Alan Cohen (via beautiful-ambition)
"You have been criticizing yourself for years, and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens."

"When you find your path, you will also find your love story. People today are consumed by doubts about their relationships: Have I found the right partner? Am I being true to myself? Have I given the best part of myself away? As a result, there is a restless kind of consumer shopping for partners, as if the “right” one can be found by toting up a potential mate’s pluses and minuses until the number of pluses matches some mythical standard. The path to love, however, is never about externals. However good or bad you feel about your relationship, the person you are with at this moment is the “right” person, because he or she is a mirror of who you are inside. Our culture hasn’t taught us this (as it has failed to teach us so much about spiritual realities). When you struggle with your partner, you are struggling with yourself. Every fault you see in them touches a denied weakness in yourself. Every conflict you wage is an excuse not to face a conflict within. The path to love therefore clears up a monumental mistake that millions of people make—the mistake that someone “out there” is going to give (or take) something that is not already yours. When you truly find love, you find yourself.
Therefore the path to love isn’t a choice, for all of us must find out who we are. This is our spiritual destiny. The path can be postponed; you can lose faith in it or even despair that love exists at all. None of that is permanent; only the path is. Doubt reflects the ego, which is bound in time and space; love reflects God, eternal divine essence. The ultimate promise on the path to love is that you will walk in the light of a truth extending beyond any truth your mind presently knows."
Deepak Chopra (via mindofataurus)
""I pray because I can’t help myself. I pray because I’m helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time, walking and sleeping. It doesn’t change God, it changes me." C.S.Lewis"
Father, thank You for refining me and growing my faith. I choose to stand strong in the midst of difficulty. I choose to bless You no matter what my circumstances are. I trust that You are leading and guiding me in paths of righteousness for Your name’s sake in Jesus’ name. Amen.
— Joel & Victoria Osteen
You are fearfully and wonderfully made
You are not a machine programmed to do everything perfectly
You will mess up and feel down and wonder this and that
But you are more resilient than you give yourself credit for
You will rise like a phoenix out of ashes
Don’t worry about everyone else
This moment is about you
Take your time
Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
no one-sided friendships/relationships in 2014 y’all. if they ain’t tryna be an active participant in your life, fuck em.
