In Transition
Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood. -Emerson

"When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.
When it is over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made of my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened,
or full of argument.
I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world."
Mary Oliver (via welcome-two-happiness)

"You get a little moody sometimes but I think that’s because you like to read. People that like to read are always a little fucked up."

"Live the life you’d be envious of if you saw someone else living it. This is my personal mantra. Whenever I’m going through a difficult time, like a breakup, and I’m wishing to be the person who could get over it and move on, I tell myself to be that person. Instead of waiting to be inspired by someone else and being jealous that they’re living a life I wish I had, I tell myself not to wait for that moment and to start being the person I want to be. If you wish you were the woman who went for that big promotion, learned a second language, dumped that guy who cheated on you, then just be that person. Think, if I have the energy to wish for it, I have the energy to do it."

so i was just sitting at home watching the crocodile hunter this morning and i thought “isn’t it just SO GREAT how steve irwin literally calls every animal he sees beautiful?” like giant terrifying scorpion: WHAT A BEAUT! twelve foot long crocodile: GORGEOUS! sting ray that will probs eventually kill him: SUCH A BEAUTIFUL CREATURE! 
and so the moral of the story is that we should all be more like steve irwin
