"An entire sea of water can’t sink a ship unless it gets inside the ship. Similarly, the negativity of the world can’t put you down unless you allow it to get inside you."- Goi Nasu (via buenas-ondas)
"If you repeat something over and over again it loses its meaning; You watch the sunset too often it just becomes 6 pm, you make the same mistake over and over you stop calling it a mistake. If you just wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up wake up one day you’ll forget why"- Phil Kaye from Repetition (via kiddings)
child I am babysitting: How do you get grownup teeth?
me: You lose your baby teeth
child I am babysitting: they fall out!?
me: they fall out
child I am babysitting: do you still have your baby eyes?
child I am babysitting: or did they fall out
me: you keep the same eyes all your life
child I am babysitting: *touches eyes* whoa
"After a while you learn the subtle difference- Veronica Shoffstall, “Comes the Dawn” (via larmoyante)
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure…
That you really are strong,
And you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn…
With every goodbye you learn."
