The best parts of life are the things we can’t plan. And it’s a lot harder to find happiness if you’re only searching in one place. Sometimes, you just have to throw away the map. Admit that you don’t know where you’re going and stop pressuring yourself to figure it out. Besides…a map is a life someone else already lived. It’s more fun to make your own.Cora Carmack, Finding It (via observando)
Happiness does not depend on outward circumstances, but on the state of the heart.J.C. Ryle (via observando)
To be happy you must have taken the measure of your powers, tasted the fruits of your passion, and learned your place in the world.George Santayana (via observando)
2. When people say “you’re gorgeous”, believe them. I tend not to, and it’s a cryin’ shame. When people genuinely compliment you, it’s because they really see it. Try to not dismiss their perspective as wrong and assume that you know better. They see all of you. We see our flaws. Believe them.
