You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend.

Paul Sweeney (via feellng)


things life is too short for:
- hating yourself
- pretending to laugh at “jokes” that are actually just bigoted statements
- not singing along to your favorite songs
- waiting hours to text someone back just to look cool
- bad coffee
- bad books
- mean people
- body shaming
- letting other people dictate your life


Sometimes, I just want to be looked at and have some man say that I take his breath away or have him trip over his words when trying to tell me how he feels and have him look at me with passion and gentleness while he does so.

Maybe he caresses the side of my face while I close my eyes and place my hands where his palm and fingers rest on my cheek and jawline, too.

Ugh. Guys, I am such a sappy lady. I probably always will be, so I’d better get used to it.
