The man I wish to wake up beside will not play games with me, for he knows there is freedom in being chosen. He will speak highly of the women who have broken his heart, for they are the love stories that allow space for this one.
The person you were at fifteen trusted you – not to fulfill every specific goal they set for you, but to make choices that maximize your happiness.
An honest conversation. Being able to truly converse with someone who genuinely listens, is something to be treasured.
While logical people will tell you that love is blind, emotional people will tell you that love is the only vision — the only truth.
There’s also a curious convulsion of nostalgia that comes when I think of the person I was when I added that item to the list. But mostly you feel unbelievably content that you kept a promise to your younger self. It was exhilarating.

Forgive yourself for something you’re carrying. We all have way too much baggage, and it is too easy to wear your soul down to regrets and sorrow.
If you want to do something then you have to wake up and stop dreaming.
I want the world to have more room for people like me. The ones who don’t always get it right but they never give up. The ones who don’t always say the right thing but they say the real thing.
