coming home to her every night means so many things. it is a literal action, an abstract idea, a physical feeling. it is a choice, a promise & a declaration. it is a return, not as a person to a place but from oneself to another. it is one individual saying to another you are the one i choose. so show her off. shout to the world that she is yours & you are hers. take pictures of her when she’s not looking - you are capturing all the moments you love about her & what make her yours that she does not yet know exist. be spontaneous. never stop reminding her that she is the one you choose & continue to choose everyday.
Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out. -John Wooden
― It’s all about your perspective or state of mind.
it is so hard to leave - until you leave. & then it is the easiest goddamned thing in the world
You cannot read loss, only feel it.
― Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha (via shesanargonaut)
words may sound nice to the ear, but only actions vibrate through the heart for all eternity. actions are louder than words, always.
it is a curious thing, the death of a loved one. we all know that our time in this world is limited, & that eventually all of us will end up underneath some sheet, never to wake up. & yet it is always a surprise when it happens to someone we know. it is like walking up the stairs to your bedroom in the dark, & thinking there is one more stair than there is. your foot falls down, through the air, & there is a sickly moment of dark surprise as you try & readjust the way you thought of things

it’s one thing to tell her that she’s beautiful, but it’s another thing to make her feel it too
to all the girls who didn’t get this message this morning:
good morning beautiful
i want you to promise me something. if you love someone, you tell them. even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing. even if you’re scared that it’ll cause problems. even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground. you say it, and you say it loud. shout it to the world, show them off… & then go from there.
