If you’re happy in a dream… does that count? The happiness–does it count?— Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things (via cleamour)
I want to be beautiful, pure and real. I want to be stripped down to my weakest self, to my bare soul; no cover ups, just the truth, and I don’t need to be loved, I just want to be accepted. In my rawest form. In my very own truth. Maybe I want to be loved and to heal. They say some need time to heal… But I think I just want to be loved to heal. And I know it will take every ounce of courage to let that happen. Because we all put up walls, dress up our souls, and create something that doesn’t really exist. It’s so much easier that way. But I accept not being perfect… And I hope with all my heart, that I will be breathtaking… A dream… So I am ready to undress my soul… And let you in, for the last time.— D.H.G (via quotethat)
A famous philosopher once said, ” Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” The truth is we don’t know how to make it simple because we’re constantly trying to find what makes us happy. The thing is there’s nothing wrong with trial and error. There’s nothing wrong with failing one too many times and there’s certainly nothing wrong with winning one too many times either. One thing we can all agree on is life isn’t fair. But what is fair is the choice we make to obtain happiness. Some choose to participate. Some choose to disrupt the order. Some get all the attention and some thrive in the shadows. Some enjoy the thrill and some play it safe. Some choose to work hard and some hardly work. Some play the game and some would rather make the rules. The world is too big for any one path to be the right one. So regardless of the path you choose, remember that it remains unique to you. It becomes your story. That is what inspires us.
