❝ In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.
—   Buddhist Saying (via thelenaubr)   —
❝ It’s still you.
It’s still you. ❞

You Belong to Me - Lifehouse

See the pyramids along the Nile

Watch the sunrise from a tropic isle

Just remember darling all the while

You belong to me

You Could Be Happy - Snow Patrol

3,583 plays

you could be happy, I hope you are
you made me happier than I’d been by far
somehow everything I own smells of you
and for the tiniest moment it’s all not true

do the things that you always wanted to
without me there to hold you back
don’t think, just do
more than anything I want to see you go
take a glorious bite out of the whole world

❝ Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence. ❞

❝ Three o’clock in the morning. The soft April night is looking at my windows and caressingly winking at me with its stars. I can’t sleep, I am so happy. ❞
—   Anton Chekhov, About Love and Other Stories (via larmoyante)   —
❝ You should always know
I wish for your happiness
even without me. ❞
—   Haiku on the sad truth  (via seulray)   —
❝ You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control. ❞
—   Elizabeth Gilbert  (via valentinesparks)   —

Change, to put it simply, is the suck. 

Nobody wants to do it - not real change, not soul change, not the painful molecular change required to truly become who you need to be. Nobody ever does real transformation for fun. Nobody ever does it on a dare. You do it only when your back is so far against the wall that you have no choice anymore. 

Or, rather, you do have a choice - you can always die. As Sartre said: “Exits are everywhere.” But you don’t want to die, so you discover that you have no choice except to find a new way to live. Which seems next to impossible, but somehow, if you fight hard enough, isn’t. Because you know what else is everywhere? ENTRANCES. The task then becomes to find your entrance - to fight your way through the tunnel, into the dim hope of your own light.

❝ The Italians have a great word; “Asolare“. It means spending time in a meaningless but delightful way. Learn to just be, rather than always doing. ❞
