I’ve found that growing up means being honest. About what I want. What I need. What I feel. Who I am.
Epiphany (via thatkindofwoman)
I’d rather be around a passionate nerd than a non-passionate cool person. Because if you lack passion, your soul is diminishing by the second. You have to be passionate about something. Call it obsessed or whatever you want, but be obsessed about something. Obsessed people care. I’m passionate about so many things, it becomes an issue at certain points, but at least you have the ability to feel that much about something.
Matt Cohen (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
You must live in the present, launch yourself on every wave, find your eternity in each moment. Fools stand on their island of opportunities and look toward another land. There is no other land; there is no other life but this.
Henry David Thoreau (via theunquotables)
No one is ever who you want them to be. And the less you really know them, the more likely you are to confuse them with the girl or boy in your head.
Rachel Cohn, Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares (via simply-quotes)
Where is this disconnect between the person in my mind that I can be and this person that is out here in the world? I can be so much better than I allow myself to be.
