"Let someone love you just the way you are – as flawed as you might be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as unaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room."

— Marc Hack (via larmoyante)

Seek out the dark places, the shadow’s home, the hollow in the black. Find them and fill them with light. It’s bursting from the seams of you, fill the night with shine.

This is the spot that saw me change. The tree with the hill that held me on so many silent birthdays, that showed me the stars and the fireworks. The hands held, the promises castoff to the universe. This is the place that saw me grow.

Life has a way of making sure that the further you wander, the more you are rewarded.  The harder the journey, the better the destination.  The darker the night, the brighter the stars.  The longer you wait, the the more it will always be worth it.  I promise.
