❝ Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
— Ralph Waldo Emerson (via observando)
Dear G,

My heart is overwhelmed with joy. I am ever so grateful for your love, for all the blessings you abundantly shower upon me, for how you work in my life everyday and for the people you bless me with. I simply can’t contain this Papa God, I’m bursting with glee that I need to share it. Thank you for giving me the gift to see how beautiful your world is. I pray that you keep touching my lips that I may cheer my soul and friend, my ears so that I may constantly listen to you and understand the meaning of all my sacrifice. I pray that you touch my hand that I may also touch others in my own ways and somehow ease their pain and discomfort. Touch my heart that I may continue to love you even more in every pain and ache I feel. Touch my spirit Lord that I may always seek you in everything, in every way that I can always be one with you. 

Thank you for always understanding when nobody else can. 

Love always,

A

it’s hard to explain but easy to feel.

it’s like my words cannot do justice to make sense of this experience. 

whatever this is… 

❝ Let each day be a scavenger hunt in which you must find at least one of these things: a sincere laugh, an act of kindness, a realization, or a lesson that leads you closer to your dreams.

You know what I want right now, a loving and caring hand, a friendly hand to make me feel everything will be okay. Someone to tell me that this is just a phase, that it’ll pass. 

This is very rare.

It’s rare to have an embrace that feels like home

Kisses that can make you think of nothing else…

❝ Too many young women I think are harder on themselves than circumstances warrant. They are too often selling themselves short. They too often take criticism personally instead of seriously. You should take criticism seriously because you might learn something, but you can’t let it crush you. You have to be resilient enough to keep moving forward, whatever the personal setbacks and even insults that come your way might be. That takes a sense of humor about yourself and others. Believe me, this is hard-won advice I’m putting forth. It’s not like you wake up and understand this. It’s a process.

❝ Someday, someone is going to look at you with a light in their eyes you’ve never seen, they’ll look at you like you’re everything they’ve been looking for their entire lives. Wait for it.

I’ve always had this thought that maybe I will JUST be a part of other people’s life and story. Another one is that I think I’m a lot better at being someone’s friend than a lover. 

Okay, here’s my mid 20s confession: I fear that I will never stick to something or someone forever. Despite of me dreaming of a happy marriage like my parents, I’ve always had this fear that I won’t. I’m probably just projecting my own feelings towards guys that I liked. I’m not scared of getting left behind, I’m more scared that for the nth time I will leave. Just because “I’m not happy anymore.” And then I start all over again. 

But maybe it’s just because I haven’t really found what my real passion is. I still haven’t found someone who can make me stay and who can make me give things another shot because we fucked up the first time.
