“A few times in my life I’ve had moments of absolute clarity, when for a few brief seconds the silence drowns out the noise and I can feel rather than think, and things seem so sharp and the world seems so fresh. I can never make these moments last. I cling to them, but like everything, they fade. I have lived my life on these moments. They pull me back to the present, and I realize that everything is exactly the way it was meant to be.”—
So at first when I signed up for this class I didn’t really know what it was about. All I knew was that it was on the paper that listed all the classes I can take so that I can transfer, it was 3 units, and it was an online class. Who would’ve known that this is one of the most inspiring classes ever?! Idk, maybe it’s just because I like the motivating, positive out looks on life, and inspiring stuff, but I can already tell that this class is gonna be really beneficial to me :] How fun! Now be prepared for me to post up a bunch of stuff that I learned in the lesson that I just went over. OH! And if you guys ever get the chance to look up a guy named Les Brown, DO IT! Look for his speech called “You Deserve” and he brings up a lot of good points. HOLLLLLLLLA for some mind stimulation ;D

“The voice said: GO BACK TO BED, LIZ.
I was so immediately clear that this was the only thing to do. I would not have accepted any other answer. I would not have trusted a great booming voice that said either: “You Must Divorce Your Husband!” or “You Must Not Divorce Your Husband!” Because that’s not true wisdom. True wisdom gives the only possible answer at any given moment, and that night, going back to bed was the only possible answer. GO BACK TO BED, said this omniscient interior voice, because you don’t need to know the final answer right now, at three o’ clock in the morning on a Thursday in November. GO BACK TO BED, because I love you. GO BACK TO BED, because the only thing you need to do for now is get some rest and take good care of yourself until you do know the answer. GO BACK TO BED so that, when the tempest comes, you’ll be strong enough to deal with it. And the tempest is coming, dear one. Very soon. But not tonight. Therefore:
GO BACK TO BED, LIZ.”—Eat Pray Love
“And barefoot or first thing in the morning, I feel beautiful because I feel like me. I didn’t always feel that way, but I feel that way now. When somebody just loves you, and when you make somebody happy, when your presence seems to make them happy, you suddenly feel like the most beautiful person in the world.”—Angelina Jolie (via kari-shma)
“We spend the majority of our time searching for what’s wrong in this world, feeling sorry for ourselves, and judging others when we have no room to judge. Everyone in this world has their own story, their own past, their own reasons for why they are the way they are. So maybe we shouldn’t be so quick to judge. Maybe the key to this life isn’t how “popular” we are, how much money we make, or what God we praise, but simply touching the lives of others around us. Making a difference. That’s what life should be about. Accepting people for who they are, going out of our way to help others, and loving with our whole heart. Sometimes all it takes is one nice gesture to turn someone’s world around. To put a smile on their face. To make them feel less alone. That is what we should live for because when you’re gone from this world, you can’t take anything with you. All that’s left of you are the people who’s lives you touched, and the difference you made while you were here on earth. So make this life count, because you don’t get a second chance.”—(via fuckyeahconfidence)
“We live in this culture where everything is supposed to be so hip and so cool, and it’s not cool to love, and it’s not cool to take care of each other, and it’s not cool to stand up for ourselves. But you know what? Fuck all of that. I believe in love, and I believe that the only way that we are going to survive this fucking craziness that’s going on in our world today is if we just learn to look at love, turn our heads the other way from all the bullshit, and fucking love.”—Andrew Mcmahon (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“I think it happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. And so you keep the wonderful memories but find yourself moving on. It’s perfectly normal.”—Nicholas Sparks (via nagemyak, quote-book) (via kimberlyjane)
i love when people reach out to me for help or advice. it makes me feel good to know that out of all the people they could have talked to, they talked to me & wanted to hear what i had to say & wanted me, of all people, to help them in their time of need. i’m glad to help :]
“The Dancer believes that his art has something to say which cannot be expressed in words or in any other way than by dancing… there are times when the simple dignity of movement can fulfill the function of a volume of words. There are movements which impinge upon the nerves with a strength that is incomparable, for movement has power to stir the senses and emotions, unique in itself. This is the dancer’s justification for being, and his reason for searching further for deeper aspects of his art.”—Doris Humphrey, 1937 (via irishdance) (via fortheloveofdance) (via hellohi-dee)
I’m always torn between wanting to tell my story to everyone to let them know exactly what is in my head and keeping it to myself. The problem is being outwardly unhappy and consistent. It pushes people away, no matter if they say they’re always there to listen, there is only so much they can do. On the other hand to pretend that everything is fine, is to poison yourself from the inside out; it is to ignore who you are and what is in your mind and lose yourself. So which is better? To have friends that think you are melodramatic, seeking attention, and pessimistic or to drown in your own mind? I don’t know.
it’s times like these where i wish i was even more busy. like to the point where i didn’t have time to hear your nonsense or you couldn’t find a free moment in my time so you wouldn’t be able to say stuff to me that kills my natural high that i’ve got going on. it’s times like these and people like you that make me want to bury myself with productive things to do. thanks & fuck you alllllllll at the same time! :D -____-
“A hug can turn your day around, it’s like an emotional Heimlich. Someone puts their arms around you, and they give you a squeeze and all your fear and anxiety comes shooting out of your mouth, and you can breathe again.”—Pushing Daisies (via kari-shma)
