For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people. For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry. For beautiful hair, let a child run their fingers through it once a day. For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone. People, more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed, and redeemed. Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of each of your arms. As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself and the other for helping others.Sam Levenson (via thehumbledtherapist)
it’s too easy to post pretty pictures and the most wise of words, selecting and editing as we please. curating what we hope and aspire for isn’t necessarily bad, as it awakens and steers rightly our souls. but do be cautious, discern your own and others realities before comparison. we are vulnerable creatures, even the most brave. what is far harder and much work, is peeling back the layers to learn our truest selves. the most intimate, abandoned, and unmasked parts. curate and dream with honest hearts. simply and humbly. stay close and unintimidated by the wounds that hold secrets to the best, most true you.
The greatest gift you can give someone is the space to be his or herself, without the threat of you leaving.Kai, Lessons in Life #39 (via sundaylatte)
When I’m old and gray, I want to have a house by the sea. And paint. With a lot of wonderful chums, good music, and booze around. And a damn good kitchen to cook in.Ava Gardner (via thatkindofwoman)
If you meet someone whose soul is not aligned with yours, send them love and move along.Dr. Wayne Dyer (via awelltraveledwoman)
