I like the paranormal, warm colors and I'm afraid of the dark.

As far as we can discern, the sole purpose of human existence is to kindle a light of meaning in the darkness of mere being.

Jordan Karnes “It Hasn’t Stopped Being California Here’ (via nogreatillusion)

(Source: takesamuscle, via nogreatillusion)

I always thought losing yourself in a relationship was something that happened in the throes of passion: mind and body bleached with electricity. That connection. And it is like that or it can be, but I also think it’s a little more pedestrian: you hold back here, you stop yourself there, until one day you see an old friend out of the blue and you are so struck by how true she is to herself - as robust and perfect and kooky as ever - and suddenly you’re crying in your kitchen, trying to explain why it’s so important for her to keep being exactly who he is, because you realize you’ve been sanitizing parts of yourself to make some kind of space for this new person in your life, a person who would never want you to sanitize yourself in the first place, but limb by limb, you did, because you wanted love to make you light the way good poems make you light. Because you were waiting for that lightness to kick in and replenish all those sanitized parts of yourself. Because it’s just what happened, along with some other stuff, like fear and longing.

Hilary Clinton on gendered self-doubt. (via unicornology)

At this point in my life and career, I’ve employed so many young people. When I say to a woman, “I want you to do this, move up, take on this extra responsibility,” almost invariably they would say, “Do you think I can? Do you think I’m ready?” Well, I wouldn’t ask if I didn’t think they were ready, but that’s often the first response from a young woman. When I’ve asked a young man to move up, he goes, “How high? How fast? When do I start?” There is a hesitancy still about women’s work and women’s worth that we’re going to have to continue to address so more women can feel free to pursue their own ambitions and be successful.

Fall in love with someone who wants you, who waits for you. Who understands you even in the madness; someone who helps you, and guides you, someone who is your support, your hope. Fall in love with someone who talks with you after a fight. Fall in love with someone who misses you and wants to be with you. Do not fall in love only with a body or with a face; or with the idea of being in love.
