In my mind I am eloquent; I can climb intricate scaffolds of words to reach the highest cathedral ceilings and paint my thoughts. But when I open my mouth, everything collapses.

Isaac Marion, Warm Bodies  (via thatkindofwoman)

Confidence isn’t walking into a room with your nose in the air, and thinking you are better than everyone else, it’s walking into a room and not having to compare yourself to anyone else in the first place.

So I’m working on vows…

& I know I have a ton of time, I just want to give myself plenty of it to think about what I really want to say. I want you to know how much I love you. I want you to know the incredible, otherworldy love that I have for you. And I want to be able to describe to you in that ceremonial moment my intentions for that love, and our marriage in the years to come…

I’m not the silly romantic you think. I don’t want the heavens or the shooting stars. I don’t want gemstones or gold. I have those things already. I want…a steady hand. A kind soul. I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.
