“It’s not my #responsibility to be #beautiful. I’m not #alive for that #purpose. My #existence is not about how #desirable you #find me.” – Warsan Shire • i remember waiting in some of my favourite #parisian #streets when i passed by that little #mirror on a #wall. it’s #written on it: “mais oui t’es belle (of course you’re #pretty)!” i just thought that was the #cutest thing ever. it made my day and i thought, what if everyone …

thinking of the #futureand #overthinking and responding to hypothetical #questions got me like… 😬but two days ago, a very good #friend of mine told me to just let it go and let God take control. there’s so much #power and #freedom in just trusting God. you’ll be #free of bad #thoughts and negative #stress and you’ll be soooo #happy, you have no idea. always remind yourself that if God doesn’t want it, then …

maybe you thought talking to a #friend you haven’t spoken to in so long was a good #idea, but you got slapped in the #face when they didn’t respond back. when they didn’t answer your simple #question. your simple #howareyouor #doyouremember. maybe they thought you were being opportunistic. maybe it’s the #jetlag 🕞. maybe they’re doing exactly what you did to them long ago. maybe …

i am thankful to have been born and raised in a #country that promotes #love #freedom and #equality. where #terrorism and other similar #violent#attacks don’t happen often. i am thankful to live the #life i’ve chosen and walk freely, being myself, in a democratic country. i am truly #blessed but how can i be at #peacewhen i hear gunshots from a privileged skin colour triggered at #humans in the country next to …

i remember #feeling #broken and #lost for a while and i kept #asking myself, “who am i called to be?” then one day, i #read one #simple sentence that shook and brought me instantly to #tears: “He is broken for us to be whole.” in this phrase lies the main #purpose of our Lord Jesus Christ: Him dying on the cross to #save us. He broke Himself completely for us not …

my mind is full like a cookie jar. i just wish someone could open it and eat some of my thoughts, especially the haunting ones. some thoughts are a bit bitter though, reflecting #anxiety and torment. others taste like #french #pastry, some sweet #memories. but i #hope anyone can find the most #delicious thoughts that taste like #faith and #trust and divine #light. i hope i, myself, can find …
