are looking for the right person,
instead of trying to be
the right person.

When I was 18, I wanted someone to “complete me”. Now, I see myself as complete, as whole and as perfect - and I simply want to share the experience of my beautiful, abundant self with another beautiful, abundant being as we grow individually and TWOgether. I don’t want to “lose myself” in someone. Rather, I want to continuously find myself and strengthen my relationship with my Self with the help of another being - and vice versa. No longer am I in search of a cheap thrill. Brittany Josephina

“If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

Roald Dahl (via kushandwizdom)

My philosophy is: It’s none of my business what people say of me, and think of me. I am what I am, and I do what I do. I expect nothing, and accept everything. And it makes life so much easier. Anthony Hopkins

For people who refuse to grow.

It takes courage to stay delicate
in a world this cruel.
