So when people leave, I’ve learned the secret: let them. Because, most of the time, they have to.

Let them walk away and go places. Let them have adventures in the wild without you. Let them travel the world and explore life beyond a horizon that you exist in. And know, deep down, that heroes aren’t qualified by their capacity to stay but by their decision to return.

you feel that you’ve wasted
your years
and yourself

it didn’t work
for me

but isn’t there always
one good thing
to look back on?

think of
how many cups of coffee we
drank together.

"Creating is addictive. If I am not creating, my sense of self plummets so low that I have to get back in the game and start doing something again just to feel like I am engaged in the world." Nick Cave, creativity junkie

"There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it." Judith McNaught, Remember When  (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

"So, what if, instead of thinking about solving your whole life, you just think about adding additional good things. One at a time. Just let your pile of good things grow." Attachments, Rainbow Rowell  (via elige)

"All power is within you; you can do anything and everything. Believe in that, do not believe that you are weak; do not believe that you are half-crazy lunatics, as most of us do nowadays. You can do anything and everything, without even the guidance of anyone. Stand up and express the divinity within you." Swami Vivekananda (via lazyyogi)

"When you lose touch with inner stillness, you lose touch with yourself. When you lose touch with yourself, you lose yourself in the world.

Your innermost sense of self, of who you are, is inseparable from stillness. This is the I Am that is deeper than name and form."
Eckhart Tolle  (via elige)

"I’m in the process of learning how to let go when I’m in situation where I’m giving of myself more than the other person is. For me, I just love. That’s my mode. That’s how I navigate the terrains of my relationships. But there’s a line between loving and honoring myself and loving and dishonoring myself. If you’re in a situation where you’re giving, loving, sharing and you’re not being appreciated or receiving the degrees and measures to that you’re dispensing..you have to remove yourself from the situation. What seems so beautiful to love dauntlessly becomes painful when you hold on to a dishonorable circumstance." Brittany Josephina (via mindofataurus)
