★·.·´¯The Lighthouse¯`·.·★

Be a light in the dark. Shine brightly for those who have lost their way in the storm. Use your story to help another person continue their own. You are loved. You are significant. You belong here. Be blessed!

What are you doing?

What are you doing to form your life into what you want it to be? What are you doing to make those precious dreams come true? What are you doing to heal those deep wounds in your heart? What are you doing to find joy and hope in each day you are given? What are you doing? What are you doing? What are you doing right now in this present day to change whatever is wrong in your life into something brighter and better? What are you doing to grow into yourself?

What are you doing? Why are you waiting for someone else to come and fix you? Why won’t you be the person you need? Why are you looking for hope in everyone else but yourself?

This it it. This is your only life. It’s the only one you get. You own it. This story is going to be whatever you choose for it to be. Whatever happened before doesn’t have to hold you back anymore. Face those wounds and allow yourself to go through the healing process as many times as it takes. Confront those lies crowding your mind with the truth. Discover what makes you come alive and build your life out of it. Do something. Do something to become whoever it is you imagine yourself to be. Be the person that makes you happy, whole, loved, and brings you peace.

The answer is you. The person you need right now is yourself. No one else can do it for you. No one else can live your life, tell your story, or make you whole. The choice is in your hands, so I will ask you again — what are you doing?

observando:

One day you finally knew
what you had to do, and began,
though the voices around you
kept shouting
their bad advice —
though the whole house
began to tremble
and you felt the old tug
at your ankles.
"Mend my life!"
each voice cried.
But you didn’t stop.
You knew what you had to do,
though the wind…

Healing is found in the beauty of music. I hope this song will seep into you and fill you with something other than the sorrow you’ve been feeling.

Blessed are those who do not fear solitude, who are not afraid of their own company, who are not always desperately looking for something to do, something to amuse themselves with, something to judge.
Paulo Coelho (via thresca)

Comfort me

I don’t need you to say everything will be okay

Comfort me

You don’t have to say a single word to make me feel better

Comfort me

Just for a moment, just for five minutes, can’t you just hold me

Comfort me

Just wrap your arms around me and hug me tight 

Comfort me

Let me find warmth against your skin

Comfort me

Give me some time to just breathe

Comfort me

I don’t need empty reassurances

Comfort me

I just need you, I just need you to pull me close and hold me tight

Comfort me

Let me fall apart in your embrace

Comfort me

For this moment let me lean on you

Comfort me

I don’t need you to fix this, I don’t need you to fix me

Comfort me

Just be with me, just stay by my side

Comfort me

Let me scream, let me cry, let me mourn

Comfort me

Draw me closer to you, until I can’t tell where I end and you begin 

Comfort me

Let me catch my breath

Comfort me

It’s your presence that soothes me

Don’t give up on love.

Don’t let that hope die inside of you. The hope that somewhere in this world there is a person who will bind their life to yours. A person who will take your hand and never let go of you. A person who loves you when you are a mess. A person who cheers for you on the good days. A person who comforts you on the bad ones. A person who chooses you in every breath for every single moment of their life. A person who loves all of you. A person you can be yourself with. A person who you feel safe, comfortable, significant, and loved with. A person who will only love you more and never less.

Be that person. Believe that your partner will come. Believe that you are worthy of such sweet love. Trust yourself, and don’t settle for a lesser love. Wait for this kind of love. Prepare your heart to receive this good love and to give it back.

You don’t have to be afraid or anxious. You don’t have to try to force it. You just need to keep your heart open, live your life being true to yourself, and keep that flame of hope burning bright till you find each other.

With love,

Dele
