Inspired by beauty, love, and simplicity. Finding myself one step at a time.
"One day, a long time from now you’ll cease to care anymore whom you please or what anybody has to say about you. That’s when you’ll finally produce the work you’re capable of."
J.D. Salinger (via vashti)
"“‘I’m bored’ is a useless thing to say. I mean, you live in a great, big, vast world that you’ve seen none percent of. Even the inside of your own mind is endless, it goes on forever, inwardly, do you understand? The fact that you’re alive is amazing, so you don’t get to say ‘I’m bored.’” ~Louis C.K."
"People are just as wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be…when I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, ‘soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner’. I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds."
Carl Rogers (via emotional-algebra)
"Happiness is the consequence of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly in the manifestations of your own blessings. And once you have achieved a state of happiness, you must never become lax about maintaining it. You must make a mighty effort to keep swimming upward into that happiness forever, to stay afloat on top of it."
"Do not let anything define your happiness, you define it yourself."
