There must be those among whom we can sit down and weep and still be counted as warriors.
― Adrienne Rich (via turnphrasesintoweapons)
I want you to know that it is not always easy to love me. That sometimes my chest is a field full of landmines, and where you went last night, you can’t go tomorrow. There is no manual, there is no road map, no help line you can call; my body does not come with instructions, and sometimes even I don’t know what to do with it. This cannot be easy. But still, you touch me anyway.
― Ivan E. Coyote
I love going trekking on my own and visiting new countries. Once you’re comfortable being by yourself , you learn to be more at ease with others.

I do not pray for a lighter load, but for a stronger back.
Decide in your heart of hearts what really excites and challenges you, and start moving your life in that direction. Every decision you make, from what you eat to what you do with your time tonight, turns you into who you are tomorrow, and the day after that. Look at who you want to be, and start sculpting yourself into that person. You may not get exactly where you thought you’d be, but you will be doing things that suit you in a profession you believe in. Don’t let life randomly kick you into the adult you don’t want to become.
