"One day I just woke up and realized that I can’t touch yesterday. So why the heck was I letting it touch me?"
Steve Maraboli (via terrible)
Pause for blabbing
If I can just gush for a second, I would like to say how incredible my boyfriend is. I should’ve immediately recognized it when, after only a week of knowing him, I caught some awful illness and disappeared for a few days. He showed up to my house unannounced with Taco Bell and sat on the couch with me.
He managed to move my roommate and I into our apartment on only 3 hours of sleep and 9 hours of work. He even showed up at my house with a surprise lunch. He doesn’t say much about my fibromyalgia, but is always rubbing my aching muscles without me having to ask. He’s clever, funny, thoughtful, and infinitely kind.
Some relationships, romantic or otherwise, are so difficult. You claw and fight to keep them, but all they bring is negativity. It’s always been easy with him. Hard to let him love me, but effortless to love him in return.

"Be wise. Treat yourself, your mind, sympathetically, with loving kindness. If you are gentle with yourself, you will become gentle with others."

"You are the one i’d let go the other loves for,
surrender my one-woman house.
Allow you red wine in bed,
even with my vintage lace linens.
Sandra Cisneros, “You Bring Out the Mexican in Me”(via hush-syrup)
"Friendship isn’t about who you’ve known the longest. It’s about who walked into your life, said “I’m here for you” and proved it."
"I want to live the rest of my life, however long or short, with as much sweetness as I can decently manage, loving all the people I love, and doing as much as I can of the work I still have to do. I am going to write fire until it comes out of my ears, my eyes, my noseholes—everywhere. Until it’s every breath I breathe. I’m going to go out like a fucking meteor"
Audre Lorde (via feniceargento)
