You don’t find love, it finds you. It’s got a little bit to do with destiny, fate and what’s written in the stars.

It’s funny how we outgrow what we once thought we couldn’t live without and then we fall in love with what we didn’t even know we wanted. Life keeps leading us on journeys we would never go on if it were up to us. Don’t be afraid. Have faith. Find the lessons. Trust the journey.

~Marc and Angel Chernoff

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

I am a child with an old soul. I see magic in everything, but at the same time, everything tires me because I feel everything so very deeply.
