“I have one desire now - to live a life of reckless abandon for the Lord, putting all my energy and strength into it.”
― Elisabeth Elliot

❝ I thank you for being the God of ends and beginnings. I thank you for being the One who teaches me ends are not to be feared, but beginnings to be embraced. I thank you for reminding me in the midst of ends and beginnings that you are the end and the beginning. ❞

❝ I knew that I would have to be brave. Not foolhardy, not in love with risk and danger, not making ridiculous exhibitions of myself to prove that I wasn’t terrified—really genuinely brave. Brave enough to be quiet when quiet was called for, brave enough to observe before flinging myself into something, brave enough to not abandon my true self when someone else wanted to seduce or force me in a direction I didn’t want to go, brave enough to stand my ground quietly. ❞

— Piper Kerman, Orange is the New Black  (via herkindoftea)

  • me about to talk in public: *rehearses what im going to say 50 times in my brain*
  • me: today how you are
❝ One day I will find the right words, and they will be simple. ❞

You pass me by and I can feel a distance growing
I’d jump a canyon just to get to where you’re going

❝ We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive. ❞

❝ Stop calling me “someone’s daughter”.
I’m someone.
That should be enough reason not to hurt me. ❞
