“No matter how good things are, there will always be solitary nights you spend in your bedroom, in a car, or in a party full of your closest friends when it feels like the walls are caving in.”—Dan Campbell (via t0xicfairies)

Maybe you and your daughter both have thick thighs or wide ribcages. It’s easy to hate these non-size zero body parts. Don’t. Tell your daughter that with her legs she can run a marathon if she wants to, and her ribcage is nothing but a carrying case for strong lungs. She can scream and she can sing and she can lift up the world, if she wants.
Remind your daughter that the best thing she can do with her body is to use it to mobilize her beautiful soul.
“There are essentially only two drugs that Western civilization tolerates: Caffeine from Monday to Friday to energize you enough to make you a productive member of society, and alcohol from Friday to Monday to keep you too stupid to figure out the prison that you are living in.”—Bill Hicks (via babytachi)
I wish I was a better artist with fingertips that bled water colors. I wish I was a better dancer, with feet that carried my body like smoke into the air. I wish I was smarter, a brain that spat out inspirational red matter with every blink. I wish I was a better lover, whose back could bend to match the arch of your eye brows. I wish I was more peaceful, a breathe that bred vulnerability. I wish I was nothing, only poetry.
Nobody should ever get as much love as I gave to you, I know that now. I am always guilty of loving too much, too hard, too soon and for too long, I am too much to be given to someone else. I am going to keep some of this love for myself.
the moment you realize that your bones are made of the same dust as the planets, your lungs are breathing the same air as the migrating butterflies, and your blood is pumping because of the love and care of thousands;
is when you realize that you are not as broken as you think you are. you are full of the world.
