Make sure you don’t start seeing yourself through the eyes of those who don’t value you. Know your worth, even if they don’t.

Do not avoid contact with suffering or close your eyes before suffering. Do not lose awareness of the existence of suffering in the life of the world.
―  Thich Nhat Hanh (via purplebuddhaproject)
A flower does not think of competing with the flower next to it. It just blooms.

I think about this quote a lot

(via flowarei)

You have more to do
than be weighed down
by pretty or beautiful
you are a fiery heart
and a wicked brain
do not let your soul
be defined by its shell.
Michelle K., You Look So Pretty! (via michellekpoems)
I detest the masculine point of view. I am bored by his heroism, virtue, and honour. I think the best these men can do is not talk about themselves anymore.
― Virginia Woolf (via moaka)

thechildofstyle:

find someone
who knows
you’re sad
just by the change
of tone in your
voice

be with someone
who loves the
feature that
you hate the most

fall inlove with
someone who
looks at you and
knows they don’t
want anyone else

R’J

Remember that nobody is who you think. There is no person walking this Earth that you will ever fully know for you each have a different experience of each other based upon what it is in you that connects or does not connect with the other person. Know this. The truth is that the more you connect to your love and to who you are, the more clearly you will be seen by all. Some will not be able to see this. You will be invisible to them. Trust that. Allow them that. Just be you, unashamedly, and gloriously. You came here to experience being you; and the more you give yourself to the highest heights of that, the more you give change to the world.
― Lee Harris (via travisjacob)
Love life. Engage in it. Give it all you’ve got. Love it with a passion because life truly does give back, many times over, what you put into it.
― Maya Angelou (via purplebuddhaproject)
There is no shame in being hungry for another person. There is no shame in wanting very much to share your life with somebody.
― Augusten Burroughs (via quotethat)
Dance. Smile. Giggle. Marvel. TRUST. HOPE. LOVE. WISH. BELIEVE. Most of all, enjoy every moment of the journey, and appreciate where you are at this moment instead of always focusing on how far you have to go.
― Mandy Hale (via observando)
All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.
―  Buddha (via purplebuddhaproject)
Where’d all the good people go? I’ve been changing channels I don’t see them on the TV shows.
― Jack Johnson (via the-dabqueen)
People are prettiest when they talk about something they really love with passion in their eyes.
