I miss you so terribly today.

"Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place."
Rumi (via photoencounters)

Amazing wall treatment! I just stumble upon this simple yet fun Chasing Sunshine blog. They did justice to white wall with little dots & triangle painting. Definitely a must try diy project.

If you lose one sense, your other senses are enhanced.

That’s why people with no sense of humour have an increased sense of self-importance.

"There are certain people who come into your life, and leave a mark. Their place in your heart is tender; a bruise of longing, a pulse of unfinished business. Just hearing their names pushes and pulls at you in a hundred ways, and when you try to define those hundred ways, describe them even to yourself, words are useless."
Sara Zarr Sweethearts (via heyteenbookshey)
"I want to see him. I want to see him so badly I could die. That’s the only thing that seems certain. It’s the only thing I can say with confidence."
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 (via mrsfscottfitzgerald)

The Waking BY THEODORE ROETHKE

I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I feel my fate in what I cannot fear.
I learn by going where I have to go.

We think by feeling. What is there to know?
I hear my being dance from ear to ear.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Of those so close beside me, which are you?
God bless the Ground! I shall walk softly there,
And learn by going where I have to go.

Light takes the Tree; but who can tell us how?
The lowly worm climbs up a winding stair;
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.

Great Nature has another thing to do
To you and me; so take the lively air,
And, lovely, learn by going where to go.

This shaking keeps me steady. I should know.
What falls away is always. And is near.
I wake to sleep, and take my waking slow.
I learn by going where I have to go.

"People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life."
Elizabeth Gilbert (via daughter-of-inanna)
"Why can’t I love myself? It’s because I can’t love anyone else. A person learns to love himself through the simple act of loving and being loved by someone else. Do you understand what I am saying? A person who is incapable of loving another cannot properly love himself."
Haruki Murakami, 1Q84 (via 3xtap)
