Always Remember You Don’t Have To:
- Leave food on your plate if you’re still hungry
- Be the prettiest girl in the room
- Hide your dark circles or pimples every time you leave the house
- Have a totally hairless body
- Say yes when you really want to say no
Hell fucking yeah.
Many of us believe we have as much of God as we want right now, a reasonable portion of God among all the other things in our lives. Most of our thoughts are centered on the money we want to make, the school we want to attend, the body we aspire to have, the spouse we want to marry, the kind of person we want to become… But the fact is that nothing should concern us more than our relationship with God; it’s about eternity, and nothing compares with that. God is not someone who can be tacked onto our lives.

Far away from the noises of daily life
Of doors, cars, birds, the back &forth of my own mind.
Above the entire earth
Drinking in its vastness.
The most vulnerable I have ever been
&yet in perfect security
In a blanket of matter &air.
A peace with parachutes floating in the distance
Against of backdrop of a forest, lake, city, land.
It didn’t matter that I’m terrified of heights. This is the stuff that dreams are made of.
The truth is that we need relationships, but we don’t need every relationship. Surround yourself with positive people who bring you up, rather than drag you down. You don’t have to sacrifice your sanity because you don’t want to hurt someone’s feelings. You don’t have to be controlled by your own kindness. You can be a good person without bending to the will of those who damage you with their own selfishness.
You deserve to be happy.
You must not reduce yourself to a puddle just because the person you like is afraid to swim and you are a fierce sea to them; because there will be someone who was born with love of the waves within their blood, and they will look at you with fear and respect.
Sometimes we want anything just to get out of the season we are in. But maybe the point is to push into God and work on our reliance and trust in Him. God is moving even if you can’t see it. He wants to get through to your heart, mind, and soul and put wisdom in the deepest, darkest corners of your mind—until His goodness just overflows into you. Admit the giants in your life, and stop feeding them power. #accountability #psalms51 #love #faith #friends
