"This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to figure it’s going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time."
"Only in the darkness, you are able to see the stars."-Martin Luther King (via autare)
"I don’t care what you think about me. I don’t think about you at all."-Coco Chanel (via ohhlovelynicole)
“morning will come, and i’ll do what’s right. just give me til then to give up this fight. cause i can’t make you love me if you don’t. you can’t make your heart feel something that it won’t. here in the dark and in these final hours, i will lay down my heart, and i will feel the power… but you won’t.”

a lot of shit happened and i had to crawl inside myself to deal with it all. i’ve prayed and talked with friends, immersed myself in family and my daughter, and have come to accept all the changes my life has gone through in the past six months.
it’s funny how life can be so different, so foreign, and yet it’s the same. there’s a comfort in that. i’m not, my house is not, my life is not completely back to normal, but maybe this is the new normal for me now. either way i’m determined to live and enjoy it ♥
"People tend to think that happiness is a stroke of luck, something that will descend like fine weather if you’re fortunate. But happiness is the result of personal effort. You fight for it, strive for it, insist upon it, and sometimes even travel around the world looking for it. You have to participate relentlessly."-Elizabeth Gilbert (via compassio)
ps. i think i’m getting slightly addicted to ebay and online shopping in general.
i got a big start on xmas shopping for my little one and on my fall/winter wardrobe.
oh well, gotta treat myself once in a while right?
