Quotes for the Soul: Pieces

There is beauty in falling apart.
You will finally see the gorgeous pieces
those with the blessing of knowing you
already witness and stand in awe of.
One by one, bit by bit, you’ll smile
when you pick up your joy, feel warmth
when you pick up your love, feel uplifted
when you pick your strength, feel whole
when you pick up your faith and truth.
Keep going, keep picking up the pieces.
No matter how long it takes because
every single piece of you is pure magic.
Maybe you needed to fall apart to see it.

“Sometimes falling apart if the bravest act of all.” –Sarah Hackley

Quotes For The Soul: Possession

I don’t ever want to possess you, pick you like a flower, or put you in a jar like a firefly just because I admire your light. That wouldn’t be fair to your existence if I truly care about you, and I do. My hope is to experience you for a very long time. But within that very hope lies my challenge. I must consciously be in the now of you instead of letting my ego create fears that whisk me away into stories of an end that is not here, near and may never come.

Ermias said you can’t possess people, you can only experience them. And I’ m so grateful I got to experience such a man.” -Lauren London

Every

Every. single. one. of. them.
Thought I’d never leave.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Have regretted the day I left.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Took advantage of my kind love.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Treated me like I was replaceable.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Tried desperately to win me back.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Desired me, admired me, loved me.
Every. single. one. of. them.
Couldn’t love me all the way through.
Are. you. one. of. them. too?

Discover

I don’t want the heavy responsibility
that lingers with completing you.
I’d much rather you meet me whole.
So we can simply water the other,
instead of draining one another.
We were never meant to find our half
We’re whole beings simply longing to
discover the parts of us others see.
