the sea has it."
— mother, nayyirah waheed (via nayyirahwaheed)
It happens like this.
One day you meet someone and for some inexplicable reason, you feel more connected to this stranger than anyone else—closer to them than your closest family. Perhaps this person carries within them an angel—one sent to you for some higher purpose; to teach you an important lesson or to keep you safe during a perilous time. What you must do is trust in them—even if they come hand in hand with pain or suffering—the reason for their presence will become clear in due time.
Though here is a word of warning—you may grow to love this person but remember they are not yours to keep. Their purpose isn’t to save you but to show you how to save yourself. And once this is fulfilled; the halo lifts and the angel leaves their body as the person exits your life. They will be a stranger to you once more."
Don’t tell me about your love of football while my friend is awake at 4 am to support his team from the other side of the world.
I’m so happy right now because my friend who is currently in Hongkong for a semester, just surprise-called me.
How the little things can make your day. :)
I hope that everyone has a wonderful day.
O wondrous creatures,
By what strange miracle
Do you so often
O what is laughter, Hafiz?
What is this precious love and laughter
Budding in our hearts?
It is the glorious sound
Of a soul waking up!
