The Intangible, Tangible Words

So when you’re struggling to find the words to express your inner-most thoughts and feelings, often reading words from someone else can either spark a surge of your own or at the very least give you the moment of ‘yessss’ that you’ve been desperately searching for. I’ve had a couple yesss moments this week already. Words are powerful, even if they’re not your own. The tangible comfort of pure relatable-ness that words can string together is true linguistic magic..reach out, hold on, and carry these with you.

1. “Life is not a race with some imaginary finish line, so stop comparing your journey to everyone else’s. Being a real adult is about finding out what makes you happy and going for it. Everything else will fall into place after that.” // The Ten Commandments of Modern Dating – Elite Daily

2. “We are fat and sick and dying because we have handed a basic, fundamental and intimate function of life over to corporations. We choose to value our nourishment so little that we entrust it to strangers. This is insanity. Feed yourselves. Feed your loved ones. And for God’s sake, feed your children.” -Alton Brown // 23 Delicious Food Quotes – (a)Musing Foodie

3. “What happened to a world in which we can sit with the people we love so much and have slow conversations about the state of our heart and soul, conversations that slowly unfold, conversations with pregnant pauses and silences that we are in no rush to fill?…This disease of being “busy” (and let’s call it what it is, the dis-ease of being busy, when we are never at ease) is spiritually destructive to our health and wellbeing. It saps our ability to be fully present with those we love the most in our families, and keeps us from forming the kind of community that we all so desperately crave.” // The Disease of Being Busy – On Being

4. “Nobody looks stupid when they are having fun,” and “forget the facts and remember the feelings.” // Amy Poehler’s ‘Yes Please’ Is The Best Non-Self-Help Self-Help Book Ever – Splitsider

5. “The single word for vertical, 0 to 1 progress is technology.” // Zero to One – Peter Thiel with Blake Masters 

6. “It’s when things feel really wrong that one gets the best sense of what feels really right, you know? I decided it was time to quit dicking around already and start to take my intuitions seriously.” // One Year Older ( And Wiser Too) – Hey Natalie Jean
