You cannot pray for an A on a test and study for a B. You cannot pray for a celestial marriage and live a telestial life. You cannot pray for something and act less.
Nobody has ever left me just once. They always come back to see how their absence dulled the vibrance in my eyes before disappearing again.
The timing in which people enter your life is very important.
Maybe you had to leave in order to really miss a place; maybe you had to travel to figure out how beloved your starting point was.
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.
I let it go. It’s like swimming against the current. It exhausts you. After a while, whoever you are, you just have to let go, and the river brings you home.
