Let me tell you this, someone is gonna love you so much that it will hurt. It’s gonna make them feel like their heart is a glass that is overflowing, and that they cannot contain all that they feel for you. They are gonna look up at the stars, and wonder why love couldn’t just be placed in space, because the endless expanse seems like a more fitting place to store the fire that burns within them for you. They are going to want to weep, because that is the love escaping from their bodies; it’ll be too much to hold in.
You know what? You will feel this way too, but eventually those feelings are going to start to dry up, and you won’t always feel that way, but that is what love is all about! You must be consistent to fill that up again, to see the person you love, and to pour into what they have spilled out. This is how you make it work, by being active, and keeping that fire alive. The stars shouldn’t be the only thing that dances at night, teach your heart to dance along with all those beautiful lights that expand across the universe, because there is beauty in love, and the whole galaxy should be able to join in on it.

“I don’t mean to compare what we have to anything I’ve dealt with in the past. Trust me, I don’t want to make things harder than they have to be on anyone else – especially you. But the truth is that I can’t remember the last time anyone stayed after promising they would. Just know that I would never consciously push you away. I’m just overwhelmed and exhausted from begging people to stay.”—Connotativewords | jl | Please (via connotativewords)
We know we want to love again, just as we know we want to see the world, it’s whether or not we are willing to pay the price and pack up our bags. Because love isn’t some star that you make a wish on, it’s the fire in the ships belly, sending you out to sea. Love isn’t a bus, making its rounds until it picks you up, no, love is the wind in your lungs as you shout out your soul, hoping that someone will respond. Love is not a song that you suddenly hear, it’s the song that you have to practice in order to play.
Love is waiting, you just have to be willing to get it. So, I think I’ll take my bandages off, because I’m healed and I’d rather not be a patient anymore; I think I’m ready to go see what’s out there, let’s hope for smooth sailing, and stars by night, because it’s time to find a love worth fighting for.
“It’s funny, when I think about this exact time last year. Things were so different. I never would have thought that things could change so much in only a year. I wonder what next October will be like.”—Daily Tumblr Love Quotes (via thelovewhisperer)
“Walk around your city: listen, see, feel. Unplug from your music and your social media for the day. Take your camera and capture the landscape in its beauty. It’s all going to change someday. Appreciate what it has to offer. Breathe in the air and let it inflate you. Walk with a leap in your step and smile at people. Treat yourself to nice food and nice things; eat alone and watch the world pass by, everyone with their own stories and in their own worlds.”—(via soph-evans)

“You know that moment you feel when you wake up and realize you have more time to sleep? Or, when you accidentally overhear someone say something nice about you? Or when you see someone you like and your heart races? Or even when you reach a goal you set for yourself? Now, remember what that feels like - and next time you’re upset, or sad, or crying - think about that feeling.”—Your daily dose of Love Capsules (via thelovewhisperer)
