Went to Central Park on my lunch break… my happy place 😊 (at New York Central Park)
❝ And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go. ❞

A beautiful evening in Central Park :) (at Central Park)
1. Lay on the floor of your shower until you can breathe again. Water will always love to love your skin.
2. Start writing with the intention of filling up one page. Write until your pen stops working.
3. Reread a book that once made you cry. Learn something new on every page. Notice how different chapter make you sad. Notice how the book didn’t change and grow; you did.
4. Sleep with your windows open. You can hear both the rain and boys drunkenly singing Frank Sinatra on their deck. Both are equally good.
5. Don’t forget that honey will always taste sweet, but the best way to eat it is off your fingers, laughing.
6. Remember that, sometimes, getting out of bed is enough.
❝ Date someone who is interested in you. I don’t mean someone who thinks you’re cute or funny. I mean someone who wants to know every insignificant detail about you. Someone who wants to read every word you write. Someone who wants hear every note of your favourite song, and watch every scene of your favourite movie. Someone wants to find every scar upon your body, and learn where each one came from. Someone who wants to know your favourite brand of toothpaste, and which quotes resonate deep inside your bones when you hear them. There is a difference between attraction and interest. Find the person who wants to learn every aspect of who you are, and hold onto them. ❞
And all the mornings we could have together spent talking, eating, laughing, snoozing a little longer, and just enjoying each other; I want all these things.
I want those mornings where we both don’t know what’s going on, the sleep still clinging to our very bodies, begging for us to return to our beds.
I want those days where you kiss me awake, and I see your puffy face smiling back at me.
I want to brush aside the hair that has fallen down your beautifully worn face. I want to kiss you until we remember that we are late for work. I want to hold you until it is noon, and we have wasted all the hours of our day; but it will be time well invested.
I want these things, those moments of living life, where it was once silent and alone; is now spent with another soul next to me.
I want them; and I want them with you.

❝ Nothing awakens a soul like knowing that it is loved. To be loved, appreciated, fought for, and encouraged is something that our hearts thirst for; and ultimately all these things can only be found in Christ. ❞
❝ No soul that seriously and constantly desires joy will ever miss it. Those who seek find. To those who knock it is opened. ❞
❝ When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier. ❞

❝ She was free in her wildness. She was a wanderess, a drop of free water. She belonged to no man and to no city. ❞
❝ I want connections, I want people. I want places. People and places I miss more than anything, people and places I have yet to meet. I want long talks and I want laughter. ❞
❝ I think the strongest prayer I’ve ever prayed is a single phrase I declared with complete honesty: God, I have no idea what you’re doing, but I trust you. ❞
