I like cancelled plans. And empty bookstores. I like rainy days and thunderstorms. And quiet coffee shops. I like messy beds and over-worn pajamas. Most of all, I like the small joys that a simple life brings.note to self (via ablogwithaview)
Marry a man who loves you more than you love him. A woman will always give more than what is necessary to her lover. It is ingrained into her, like maternity. But even when a man loves you more, he will still only be able to meet you halfway.Rihanna (relaying advice given to her by her deceased grandmother)
Start ignoring people who threaten your joy.
Literally, ignore them.
Don’t invite any parts of them into your space.
