It's Been Done Already

23, Australian, female with a serious case of wanderlust and wanting to live beautifully.

None of the images are mine unless stated.

Sometimes you regret the things you do, but they’re over and done. Regretting the things you didn’t do is tougher because they’re still out there, haunting you with the what ifs.

—Elin Hilderbrand, The Matchmaker (via quoted-books)

Love doesn’t break easily, I found. But people do.

—Amy Garvey, Cold Kiss (via quoted-books)

Some people are like shooting stars. They burst through our lives in a spectacular arc, but they don’t stay long. They just leave a trail.

—Erica Orloff, Illuminated  (via quoted-books)

Love doesn’t want people to stay ignorant and frightened. Love doesn’t value obedience over all else. Love doesn’t judge and find some lives—or loves—more valuable than others. Love doesn’t use people and throw them away. Love stays, and makes you stronger, even when the person you love is gone.

—Stacey Jay, Juliet Immortal (via quoted-books)

Come walk with me, I like your company and I’ve been alone for so long; your laugh will be a pleasant reminder that there is beauty in this world.

Becoming bilingual is a way of life. Every bone and fiber of your being is affected in some way as you struggle to reach beyond the confines of your first language and into a new language, a new culture, a new way of thinking, feeling, and acting.

So please ask yourself: What would I do if I weren’t afraid? And then go do it.
