When you let go of the belief that you should or need to know who you are, what happens to confusion? Suddenly it is gone. When you fully accept that you don’t know, you actually enter a state of peace and clarity that is closer to who you truly are than thought could ever be. Defining yourself through thought is limiting yourself.

 Eckhart Tolle (via purplebuddhaproject)

I want a partner who I can continually learn from.

Fun doesn’t cut it for me anymore. I believe you can have fun with anyone once you get to know them. I want someone who I can pick brains with, share stimulating conversations, and lay under stars and just say, “whoa,” after learning a random, new fact. I want a partner where we can share a glance and immediately feel this intellect spark that equates to butterflies in my tummy.

To love yourself right now, just as you are, is to give yourself heaven. Don’t wait until you die. If you wait, you die now. If you love, you live now.
