“I really don’t think life is about the “I could have beens”. Life is only about the “I tried to do.” I don’t mind the failure, but I can’t imagine that I’d forgive myself if I didn’t try.”—Nikki Giovanni. (via curvesincolor)
“Tired of niggas putting “Free my nigga such and such” on t’shirts when they be guilty as fuck. Imma make a shirt that say “let that nigga sit”. Imma have a picture of them wearing strips behind bars holding a cheese sandwich and a tin cup. On the back it’s gonna say “do better my nigga”. Bout to get one made for meek mills.”—GangstaTurtles (via gangstaturtles-makaveli)
“No. I don’t have any regrets in life, period. I feel like there’s always a divine order. Whether it’s a good thing or a bad thing there’s a lesson to be learnt, you know? It’s all designed to make us stronger, healthier people who are evolving at the quickest rate possible. And, although it’s not a race, I think we evolve a lot quicker when we accept everything and don’t expect anything.”—Erykah Badu in Oyster Mag (via sehvn)
“Everyone you meet is your mirror. That pain and suffering, conformity, depression, that inability to accept themselves or be alone that you see in someone else is a direct reflection of your self. The same thing goes for when you are undeniably attracted to another person’s beauty, their loving-nature, sense of adventure, their strength or their conviction. If something stands out to you, negatively or positively, pay attention because the Universe, and more specifically, the law of attraction, is trying to illuminate the areas where one needs to direct more attention to within their self.
All one needs is more love, understanding and peace internally as well as externally.”—dee-lirium (via dee-lirium)
“Eat food from farmers markets.
Drink good tea each morning.
Read books that make you feel.
Paint, even if you’re awful.
Write, even when you have nothing to say.
Sit in the fresh air outside.
Go on hikes.
Swim in lakes and wade in streams.
Sleep as long as you need.
Work hard at what you love.
Work hard at what you hate.
Love unconditionally and wholeheartedly.”—How to stay Happy by me (via cosmofilius)
