We all have different desires and needs, but if we don’t discover what we want from ourselves and what we stand for, we will live passively and unfulfilled.
Bill Watterson (via purplebuddhaproject)
When we least expect it, life sets us a challenge to test our courage and willingness to change; at such a moment, there is no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that we are not yet ready. The challenge will not wait. Life does not look back. A week is more than enough time for us to decide whether or not to accept our destiny.

I hate people.

I would like to be known as an intelligent woman, a courageous woman, a loving woman, a woman who teaches by being.

I wonder
who’s arms would I run and fall into
if I were drunk
in a room with everyone
I have ever loved

would you catch me or let me fall (via weallgrowup)

Readying to hit up Tarkwa Beach Bay in Lagos, Nigeria. Sporting a Bantu suit. This weekend, I did the most to keep my mind clear of my stolen phone (why couldn’t Nigeria give me at least 2 weeks home before robbing me lol). Not the loss of the phone itself that had me frantic, but all the work for my website I had stored on it that went with the theft. Will just have to start re-creating my lost files. But I’m not one to mop around for long over circumstances that can’t be controlled, so I’m glad I had the beach and good people around me as distraction. - Yagazie Emezi
