“ We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.
— Robert Fulghum, True Love
A little known secret concerning life in the jungles of time and space is that however far you reach, you will go farther. However great your dreams, they will be grander. And however much you love, you will be loved much more.
We call it the Law of Increasing Returns.
“ The person in life that you will always be with the most, is yourself. Because even when you are with others, you are still with yourself, too! When you wake up in the morning, you are with yourself, laying in bed at night you are with yourself, walking down the street in the sunlight you are with yourself.What kind of person do you want to walk down the street with? What kind of person do you want to wake up in the morning with? What kind of person do you want to see at the end of the day before you fall asleep? Because that person is yourself, and it’s your responsibility to be that person you want to be with. I know I want to spend my life with a person who knows how to let things go, who’s not full of hate, who’s able to smile and be carefree. So that’s who I have to be.

“ To the people who love you, you are beautiful already. This is not because they’re blind to your shortcomings but because they so clearly see your soul. Your shortcomings then dim by comparison. The people who care about you are willing to let you be imperfect and beautiful, too.
— Victoria Moran (via purplebuddhaproject)
“ No matter what people tell you, words and ideas can change the world.
— Robin Williams (1951-2014)
“ So much more awaits you, Nia. There’ll come a day when you look back at where you’ve been and where you now are and call these your “warm up years.”
