your standards should be high for both your friendships and romantic relationships. everyone you surround yourself with should have qualities you actually admire.

"You’ve got to be the one to tell yourself that it’s possible. No one can do this but yourself, for fighting for the approval of others is not the battle that deserves your time."

whoever’s reading this, i pray that you find happiness. not temporary happiness, or “if i pretend and put on a smile & laugh, maybe i’ll be happy” kind of happiness, but long lasting real happiness. the kind of happiness that makes ur face glow & lights up ur soul. you deserve it

choosing yourself is the greatest love story.

“Whether it takes you one, ten, or a thousand more steps forward, if it takes you to where your heart desires, then don’t be afraid to make that move.”

Don’t be afraid to open a new door. It could take you even farther than you’ve ever imagined, but you’ll never know unless you turn that handle.

Put in the time to do what calls you, or take even more time regretting not taking that chance. Trust in your intuition and follow where ever it may lead you.

‪A big part of this transformation process is allowing yourself to be uncomfortable. The unknown is not comfortable. Trust the journey, have faith in divine timing and order.‬

if you know what you want in life go for it. don’t lie to yourself to please others or because you’re scared of the outcome. just go for it. you can’t live your dream life when you don’t put in the work. manifest first, cut the negativity out second, then work and believe in yourself. don’t wake up one day wishing you had tried. you owe it to yourself to try now.

Get your life together on the low. No one has to know what you’re doing and how.

If I want you, never worry about who wants me.

It is so important to surround yourself with people who will teach you things and lift you up to become a better person everyday.

Things I want in the next 5 years
- a stable job that i love
- enough money to live comfortably and travel
- a fulfulling relationship

If you’re willing to work hard, you can have whatever you’d like.

i take loyalty very seriously

Long term is where its at. Long term friends, Long term relationships, Long terms goals.

Marriage doesn’t scare me, marrying the wrong person does.

Get in touch with your goals not useless people

It’s weird when you realize the person you once told everything to now has no idea what’s going on in your life

If they truly value you, they won’t do shit that would lose you. Simple.

Be with someone who speaks highly of you in your presence and in your absence.

Relationships are supposed to be lit & dope. Dates, food, sex & trips. Not arguing & bad vibes..

I notice everything. I choose to let you know which things I noticed.

having a big heart will always make you feel like you either did too much or didn’t do enough.

If you don’t take risks, you’ll always have regrets

That unstoppable girl that you’re envisioning, you’re her. She’s you. Go be her!

“You can take 5 hours, 5 days, or 5 years; it doesn’t matter. As long as you try your best when reaching your ultimate destination, time will be on your side, regardless of how much of it there is.”

“You are currently writing your own story. Your adventure is not going to look like anyone else’s, but is completely unique to you. No one else can replicate this life that you are living, for you are the one and only author.”

It may take you five, ten, or a thousand steps forward. There may be many curves and bumps upon the road. However, your heart burns brighter than all else. Your passion shines through all barriers that stand in your way.

Put in a good effort every single day, and little by little you’ll get to where you want to go. You must not give up. Keep at it, and you’ll get to where your heart lies.

Trust in your journey. You are on your way to someplace beautiful.

“One cannot be so ‘busy’ that they are unable to make time for those in their life that matter.”

“True happiness is not only achieved by creating the next top selling novel, becoming a world famous singer, or being the head of a huge corporation. True happiness is what ever you yourself define it as being. So head towards your dreams with the fire in your heart, regardless of what they may be.”

“Keep going. Regardless of your current level of skill, regardless of your current circumstances, and despite your doubt. If you love something, completely and without question, don’t give it a second thought. Head towards it with open arms.”

“Always remember to smile for the camera. Wait. There is no camera. But does that matter? Is that really the only reason that you have to smile?”

“Can you count how many times you smiled today? Maybe how many times you genuinely laughed? Hopefully you shouldn’t be able to. Hopefully, as amazing as it is, it happened so many times that you were unable to keep track!”

september will be kind. september will be magical. september will bring the missing energy. september will be working towards our goals and self. september will be a month full of growth.

Destroy the idea that you have to be constantly working or grinding in order to be successful. Embrace the concept that rest, recovery, and reflection are essential parts of the progress towards a successful and ultimately happy life.

Home is wherever YOU are. — Britney Egner

it takes just as much time to gossip as it does to say something nice. it takes just as much time to complain as it does to be grateful. it takes just as much time to judge others as it does to be kind and helpful. what you put out will come back to you in return. do not think that it will skip over you. spend your time wisely and you will be repaid greatly. spend your time being judgmental and cruel and you will find yourself always in drama and negative situations. it is all up to you.

Judging people by the company they keep is so real and useful.

no shade but there’s a few people I’m glad I’m not close to anymore

im horny but like… horny for a successful future full of happiness and satisfaction with the person ive become

i love airports and packing and the smell of a new city and hotel breakfasts and doing cute touristy stuff, man i love traveling

concept: we’re both home in our underwear after a long day at work. your head is in my lap; my hands playing with your hair. we can hear rain against the windowpane outside. it’s quiet, and comfortable, and i love you.

“Just quit your job and follow your passion/dreams.” is some privilaged-ass, shitty advice. This one’s better: “leverage your job into supporting your passions/dreams until those dreams can support you.”

My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them. My dreams are attainable and I will reach them.

“And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”

It doesn’t matter where you start, but how hard you work to get to the finish. It doesn’t matter what you have now, but how you use what you have to create something better.

‪Everything happening right now is a soul test. Your higher self wants to know, have you learned? Have you changed? Have you stopped? ‬


I like the idea of you thinking about me

you know that feeling when you’re out in nature at 5 or 6am and everything’s still quiet and the air still smells like night time and it’s fresh so you shiver a bit but then slowly the first rays of sun peak over the edge of the earth and everything is bathed in foggy, golden light and you just stand there watching the earth awaken.. if that’s not soothing idk what is

Me after thinking about something for three day straight, without any break : oh it…it really isn’t that serious

You can’t spend the rest of your life being afraid of people rejecting you, and you have to start by not rejecting yourself, you don’t deserve it. From now on, people can either accept you for who you are or they can fuck off. Kester, My Mad Fat Diary (via olivia-ross)

When you die, you appear in a cinema with a number of other people who look like you. You find out that they are your previous reincarnations, and soon you all begin watching your next life on the big screen.

you have to get yourself out of bad places. you need to resist the temptation to let everything slip and become apathetic & cynical toward yourself and your life. you need to accept that it takes time to change and it’s ok to fall over as long as u get back up. every morning is a new start and things don’t have to be this way forever. you can heal and you can change.

if I’m not sitting in pretty lingerie with a glass of champagne in a foreign place in the next 5 years I’ve failed 

Aries: You have the softest and warmest heart however you pretend that you don’t care. You don’t always have to be strong. You have the right to feel what you feel. Your reflection is tougher than in reality.
Taurus: Determination is awesome, being stubborn can lead to losing people. You are misunderstood and have a pure and calm aura. You are actually generous but not many people deserve to see it. Your reflection is greedier than in reality.
Gemini: Life is a game to you. Rules are meant to be broken without getting caught. Carelessness however, can get you in big trouble. Your reflection is more cheerful than in reality.
Cancer: Love doesn’t give you the right to manipulate anyone. I know you care A LOT but don’t waste it on people who don’t care. You deserve better. Your reflection is more innocent than in reality.
Leo: Acting self-confident won’t make your insecurities disappear. You are really brave when it comes to everything except yourself. Accept yourself before accepting others. Your reflection is more confident than in reality.
Virgo: No one is perfect. Nothing can be perfect. And that’s okay. Every hardship opens a new door to a new oppurtunity. Don’t be upset there are still endless possibilities and enough time. Your reflection is more professional than in reality.
Libra: Getting attached so easily can hurt you. I understand that you have a lot of love to give, however sometimes It’s good to be patient and wait for the right people to come to you. Your reflection is more independent than in reality.
Scorpio: Some people will not understand you, Some will. You tend to live life at extreme levels. Black and white. Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion If they don’t respect you, It’s their loss. Your reflection is more intimidating than in reality.
Sagittarius: Your mind as wild as your dreams. We understand you want to live life to It’s fullest. But slow down once in a while. Don’t get too caught up with the destination. Smell roses and stargaze along the way. Your reflection is more relaxed than in reality.
Capricorn: Success will bring you pride and prestige. However is that really the only thing you want? It’s really okay to be vulnearable. People can be better than they seem to be. Your reflection is more careless than in reality
Aqaurius: Some people can be considerate and kind. I know you don’t trust easily. But there are many people who love you who you can trust. Being unique is amazing but being different can also lead to thinking too much about what others think. Your reflection is colder than in reality.
Pisces: Reality can be horrifying. I understand. But If you want your dreams to come true, you have to make effort in the real world. You can even make the world around you a better place. Your reflection is more superficial than in reality.

yellow dress is cute, dif accessories though

“Growth is painful. Change is painful.But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.”

tbh the real advice I’d give to anyone is, do shit alone. go to a museum & go at your own pace & leave the instant you’re done. go somewhere you’ve never been and just wander around, duck into & out of places as it pleases you. linger as long as you’d like.

hearing “I’m proud of you” from the right people is so comforting and motivating.

“Try once more, just once
” ”

Either march along a path set out for you, or wander across the trail that you set for yourself.

Just because you’re invited doesn’t mean that you have to show up. Don’t feel obligated to spend time with people that don’t contribute to your wellbeing. Please, respect yourself enough to say no when you need to.

loving as intention
loving as a process
loving as growing

Nights with you, mornings with you, everything with you.

Don’t be envious of someone’s joy. It might be their first time to breathe out after their lungs were drenched in sorrow for too long.

“Allow yourself to become who you are meant to become. In life, others will develop differently than you. They will form a different set of opinions. They will simply be different. However, that is natural, for everyone is called to become their own person. You be you, regardless of anyone else. Don’t allow the differences that may exist persuade you to hide your true self.”

“You are valuable beyond all borders. Really; so are so special. So unique. The only person that needs to realize this is yourself, so don’t try so hard getting others to see this. It is not their opinion that validates your value, but your very own.”

“If you don’t take the time to invest in yourself, then no one else will either. You, and only you, are in charge of setting the foundations in which your self development builds upon.”

“Control your thoughts, and you will be able to control the way in which the world appears. Think highly of events; if it’s good, see it’s beauty. If it’s bad, seek for growth. Everything that happens has a reason, purpose, and difference that it will make. So take a moment, and choose to see the impact that your thoughts have on your life.”

Discover the deepest depths of yourself. There is a whole world within you waiting to be discovered, which you will only find once you take the time to explore yourself and all of your beauty.

“Your eyes are open as you are reading this sentence. However, do you see clearly? Do you see how lucky we are to be able to read? To learn? To experience life?”

Good food does lead to sex. As it should. And in a perfect world, good music does too.

I pray that every woman finds someone that makes you feel like relationships really don’t have to be so hard. They don’t have to take such a big toll on you emotionally. You’re supposed to be indescribably happy
