If you touch one thing with deep awareness, you touch everything.

When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people; as I grow older, I admire kind people.

- Abraham Joshua Heschel

― Thank you sir. Very, very true! (via sexysuzansayz)
We think that by protecting ourselves from suffering, we are being kind to ourselves. The truth is we only become more fearful, more hardened and more alienated. We experience ourselves as being separate from the whole. This separateness becomes like a prison for us—a prison that restricts us to our personal hopes and fears, and to caring only for the people nearest to us. Curiously enough, if we primarily try to shield ourselves from discomfort, we suffer. Yet, when we don’t close off, when we let our hearts break, we discover our kinship with all beings.
― Pema Chodron  (via funeralfaerie)
Try not to feel jealous about things, or people or places. It’s toxic. Just keep living. You will find your happiness.

You are the best parts of all the songs I love.

be nice to people because the world is a shitty place and we all need a little help sometimes

i wish there wasn’t a stigma about doing things alone. you can’t go out to eat alone, you can’t see a movie alone, basically anything fun, you’re looked down on for doing alone and it’s so stupid you shouldn’t need other people to validate your decisions

humans are kinda cute we pass stories down generations to instill a sense of wonder in people we’ll never know and we have little bells on our houses to tell each other that we’ve arrived and we shiver when we get cold and we have an endless amount of curiosity and if the night sky is clear our first instinct is to look up at the stars and think about going on big adventures
