Dear Self,

Meditate and accept what you cannot change. Pray and give thanks for what is yours. All things are in your reach but only when the time is right. Pace yourself and enjoy what belongs to you. If you’re meant to have something or someone in this lifetime, you will, trust in that. 
Humbly Yours,
-Alex Elle #anote2self

The cure for anything is salt water. Sweat, tears, or the ocean.

Isak Dinesen (via wordsthat-speak)

I am a happy camper so I guess I’m doing something right. Happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder.

― Henry David Thoreau (via psych-quotes)

Sometimes we have to learn how to be selfless by being selfish. Take your time but do so with love.

Life is pretty simple: You do some stuff. Most fails. Some works. You do more of what works. If it works big, others quickly copy it. Then you do something else. The trick is the doing something else.

Leonardo da Vinci (via observando)

The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts while the stupid ones are full of confidence.

Charles Bukowski (via psych-facts)

Life’s too short to drink crappy coffee and cry over boys who don’t care.

Cherub by Sarah Lucas, 2006

All authority of any kind, especially in the field of thought and understanding, is the most destructive, evil thing. Leaders destroy the followers and followers destroy the leaders. You have to be your own teacher and your own disciple. You have to question everything that man has accepted as valuable, as necessary.

Krishnamurti (via purplebuddhaproject)
