"I began to realise how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good."
Roald Dahl (via savvysmilinginlove)
"Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again."
C.S. Lewis (via childrenofthetao)
"When Oshun possesses her followers she dances, flirts, and then cries because no one can love her enough, and the world is not as beautiful as she knows it could be."
A Guide to Serving the Seven African Powers, by Alvarado Denise (via hoodoo-seed)
The morning after a night of decorative things.
As time flows over me, unaware of my presence, I feel increasingly disconnected from the world around me. Confused and frightened by the chaos that is life I withdraw into myself and through glass eyes gaze upon the grey and watch the fleeting dreams of the world pass by.
"I hate and I love
Why do I, you ask ?
I don’t know,
but it’s happening
and it hurts."
Catullus (via lazyyogi)
Anonymous said: HOW TO DEAL WITH FEELING INCOMPETENT AND INCAPABLE IN LIFE?
Insecurity should inspire motivation to educate oneself and cultivate initiative, rather than mourning one’s perceived incapacitates. Thought needs to be balanced with action, some risks need to be taken, we didn’t evolve by remaining complacent for the past 14 billion years.
You will never know the confidence you seek unless you personally experience the vivid sensation of persisting through your anxiety. You have to take initiative to secure the circumstances that you desire.
Find motivation in the thought of lying on your deathbed, terrorized by the trauma of regret, the knowledge that you squandered a lifetime of potentially meaningful, euphoric experiences.
