I will love you
Not through the grandest feat
But through the brush of your hair as it falls out of place
Through the little notes in your briefcase
Through every kiss good morning and good night
Through a smile just so I can be a light.
In all the small things
The details and the chores
I will choose to love you
All the more.
"I see your eyes
when I close mine,
no matter the place,
in the lightest corners of
I think that maybe,
this, is what
all those poems
"If you’re anything like me, don’t you often wish that God would just “work His magic” with your heart and circumstances? But wouldn’t that be so contradictory to His relational nature that engages us through every part of the process? His ultimate purpose is to glorify Himself through building intimacy with you, and He often does this through seasons of struggle. You’re not alone in the valley. It is where He most readily strips you of your ability to “hold it together” or “power through.” He allows difficulty so you have no option but to depend fully on His faithfulness and hold tight to His promises."
"I want to learn you.
I want to learn with you.
I want to learn from you"

I’m totally into eating clean and healthy and enjoying things in moderation or whatever but I’m pretty sure waffles and donuts should be a part of every day life
"I can’t tell you the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone."
I hate that to work in the music industry (particularly as an artist), if don’t look a certain way, then you’re not given the time of day. Where it’s encouraged for a 17 year old girl to work out and lose the baby face and adopt a sexier image satisfying to the male gaze. I get that image maintenance is part of the territory, I really do. BUT to me, there’s a huge difference between presenting yourself well to craft an image and creating an image that can never actually be achieved in real life. An image that continuously perpetuates unrealistic beauty standards as the norm and expectation.
I look at people like Adele where the talent supersedes the image, and yet her image is still appealing to the masses. She’s recognized generally as a beautiful woman who in her own words “loves food and hates exercise”. Now, there’s nothing wrong with advocating a healthy lifestyle, but if it goes from loving health for the sake of loving health and adopting health (and some actually unhealthy habits) to look like every other artist, actress, or model out there… IDK. It just pisses me off that looking like Mila J or Tinashe (no offense to those beautiful ladies) is the default industry standard with seemingly no interest in diversifying the images. You can be sexy, but why must that be the default for success?
napping together is my kind of date
