Knowing who you are is the greatest wisdom a human being can possess. Know your goals, what you love, your morals, your needs, your standards, what you will not tolerate and what you are willing to die for. It defines who you are. I have learned not to obsess over being number one all the times. Sometimes not being number one gives you the incentive and the courage to fight harder; it is motivating. Have patience. Have grace. Be secure enough in yourself to base success on personal growth.Take at least twenty minutes every day to be still and quiet. Time to sit in complete silence. Think. Reflect. Dissect your thoughts and feelings. Relive any mistakes from the day before. Decide how to be smarter and tougher, how to be more committed and considerate of others and more sensitive and aware of your surroundings. Choose something you learned that will make you a better person.Choose to be happy and positive. Live like the blessed human you are.Define you.Knowing who you are allows you to create your own beautiful legacy. -Beyoncé  (via femburton)

Notice the people who are happy for your happiness, and sad for your sadness. They’re the ones who deserve special places in your heart. -(via drawyoureyes)

Fall in love with someone who’s comfortable with your silence. Find someone who doesn’t need your words to know it’s time to kiss you. -Clairabelle Ann (via poisoned-honey)

you will find someone,
who won’t sigh at words like commitment,
and whose jaw won’t clench, when you ask them to stay.

you will spit out the word ‘love’ so often,
that it will follow water down the drain and into the earth,
and you’ll see your work shining on the pavement.

you will be able to make your rent,
and still have a few bucks left over to waste on this month’s boyfriend;
waste it on yourself.

you will believe in something so deeply,
that it alone will be enough to make your feet touch the hardwood floor every morning.

you’ll laugh at all the moments, which at the time, made you feel as if there was nothing to live for, the moments where tomorrow’s chances of occurring, seemed slim to none.

the thoughts that lied in between your hair and the pillow sheets will finally reach your reality. And every tear stained, broken hearted, night;
will have been worth it.

Wait for it.

The truth is,

we don’t get to choose who we fall for. They may mistreat us, ignore us or hurt us, but we stay with them. Why? It’s not because we’re stupid or we enjoy getting hurt, It’s because we can see the good in them, it’s because despite all the arguments, they are the ones who make us feel a certain way that no one else can & we value that feeling, & because our brains won’t allow them to leave our minds, & our hearts won’t allow them to leave our lives.

    It’s a marvelous thing, the ocean. For some reason when two people sit together looking out at it, they stop caring whether they talk or stay silent. You never get tired of watching it. And no matter how rough the waves get, you’re never bothered by the noise the water makes by the commotion of the surface - it never seems too loud, or too wild. -Banana Yoshimoto, Goodbye Tsugumi  (via anacampserrote)

  • I think it would be so easy to write about your hair and your smile and your eyes and your lips. I think it would be so easy to love your sense of humor and your favorite desserts and your favorite television shows and your all time favorite movies. I think it would be simple to hold your hands and stare into your eyes and lay on the grass and watch all that passes above with you. I think it will feel right holding conversations all day and watching your sweet disposition as you fall asleep in my arms and just lay there with the sound of traffic in the streets.

    I think it’s going to be quite beautiful, falling in love with a person like you. And I can see it. I can see it all. And I’m not sure if you’re supposed to be the one or will be the one at the finish line but it feels right being with you. I don’t know where this may or may not go but it feels good, it feels worth it, and it feels like butterflies being released into the world. And I am happy.
