Quotes Strength

The ruins they made of your heart, they are still loved. They are cherished by the memories they give refuge to, the wildflowers of peace that have taken root in their walls, and the birds of epiphany that have nested and given birth to newer, more beautiful truths about you. The ruins they made of your heart, they are not ruins at all. They are an incredible universe made of blood and muscle and stars.

To those that keep Trying, 

It’s okay to take a break. It doesn’t mean you suck, or you’re a quitter. I think realizing, “hey, I’ve been doing my best and am fucking tired” and being okay with that mindset is important. Living every day isn’t always easy. Give yourself some credit and get some rest.

- someone who cares about you

I am feeling solid
and sturdy
for the first time
in longer than I would like to admit
and these days
this sense of surety
from a day’s first touch of sun
to its last
with a shadow floating through
once or twice
and almost imperceptibly
and I am happy
and bright
and sound
and I am moving forward
and I would like nothing more
than to keep going
until I touch the sun

Study while the rest of the world sleeps.
Fight when everyone else has given up.  
Love when others’ hearts have loved too much.
