It is not the length of life, but the depth.Ralph Waldo Emerson (via nofatnowhip)
Let go of all ideas and images in your mind, they come and go and aren’t even generated by you. So why pay so much attention to your imagination when reality is for the realizing right now?Adyashanti (via thecalminside)
Oh my God, what if you wake up some day, and you’re 65, or 75, and you never got your memoir or novel written; or you didn’t go swimming in warm pools and oceans all those years because your thighs were jiggly and you had a nice big comfortable tummy; or you were just so strung out on perfectionism and people-pleasing that you forgot to have a big juicy creative life, of imagination and radical silliness and staring off into space like when you were a kid? It’s going to break your heart. Don’t let this happen.Anne Lamott (via modernhepburn)
The confidence that comes from being well-dressed is immeasurable.
Brooks Brothers, 1932
I know that it hurts, but don’t you dare quit. Don’t do it. I want you to hold on…onto that absolute last glimmer of hope. You mustn’t give up on yourself, because I have faith in you. Even when those tears are pouring out through your eyes and you can’t seem to understand why you feel the way that you do. I want to let you know that although I cannot see you, I still care about you and your well-being. You matter. You do.
