About: Lacey, 24, Louisiana. All for happiness, travel, psychology, good tunes, delectables, biographies, & knowledge. I'm an open-minded truth seeker who is receptive, independent, full of empathy, soul, and substance. I have different degrees of certainty about different things, but I am not absolutely sure of anything.
“The way to develop self-confidence is to do the things you fear and get a record of successful experiences behind you. Destiny is not a matter of chance: it is a matter of choice. It is not something to be waited for: it is something to be achieved.”
—W.J. Bryan (via elige)
“We need people in our lives with whom we can be as open as possible. To have real conversations with people may seem like such a simple, obvious suggestion, but it involves courage and risk.”
—Thomas Moore (via henretta84)
“Sorrow prepares you for joy. It violently sweeps everything out of your house, so that new joy can find space to enter. It shakes the yellow leaves from the bough of your heart, so that fresh, green leaves can grow in their place. It pulls up the rotten roots, so that new roots hidden beneath have room to grow. Whatever sorrow shakes from your heart, far better things will take their place.”
—Rumi (via yeshecholwa)
