You will lose someone you can’t live without, and your heart will be badly broken, and the bad news is that you never completely get over the loss of your beloved. But this is also the good news. They live forever in your broken heart that doesn’t seal back up. And you come through. It’s like having a broken leg that never heals perfectly—that still hurts when the weather gets cold, but you learn to dance with the limp.

Don’t be into trends. Don’t make fashion own you, but you decide what you are, what you want to express by the way you dress and the way to live.
Gianni Versace (From “47 Quotes to Inspire You to Be Yourself” by Madison Moore on Thought Catalog)
Make your own label – one that you can be proud of – and wear it boldly. Wear it with the confidence of a woman who knows her worth, who isn’t afraid to define her identity and who doesn’t need the validation of people to feel good about who she is.
Make your own label and make it so unbelievably real that when someone tries to slap a false one on you, you’ll laugh at all the ways their puny inaccurate opinions don’t even make a dent.
You need someone who will choose you, who will help keep you grounded but who won’t seek to control you or typecast you because his idea of a wife is a meek, submissive woman. He will celebrate you. He will not feel like he’s missing anything. He will enjoy the things that make you you. Because a man of character does not seek to change a woman. He simply just loves her.
Someone wrote me a love letter for Valentine’s day :)
Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but
nothing is infinite,
not even loss.
You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again.
