While waiting for you,

I feel like I’m treading water

just trying to stay afloat.


My lungs aching for you like air.

Struggling for breath

Hands shaking, heart racing

But whenever I decide to leave you,

I feel at ease.

Peace in my heart.

Liberated and free

Why is it that every time I fall in love, I go insane?
Why can’t I be calm?

What are you doing to my brain?

She longed to know what at that moment was passing in his mind; in what manner he thought of her, and whether, in defiance of everything, she was still dear to him.

Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice (via creatingaquietmind)

She had an eager mind always. She was always quick to seize upon anything that would improve her mind or her appearance. She had warmth, vitality. She had authentic magnetism…The way she listened was more eloquent than speech.

Laura (1944 Film)

I have counseled many young men to break up with the woman they were dating because they had made her their life. She was the sun of his universe, around which he orbited. A man needs a much bigger orbit than a woman. He needs a mission, a life purpose, and needs to know his name. Only then is he fit for a woman, for only then does he have something to invite her into.

John Eldredge, Wild At Heart (via creatingaquietmind)

Your soul doesn’t care what you do for a living - and when your life is over, neither will you. Your soul cares only about who you are while you are doing whatever you are doing.

Neale Donald Walshe (via creatingaquietmind)
