I want to fall asleep, and wake, knowing my heart is safe. I want to love, and be loved.”—Shana Abé (via at-home-in-nature)
“I like people with depth, I like people with emotion, I like people with a strong mind, an interesting mind, a twisted mind, and also someone that can make me smile.”—Abbey Lee Kershaw (via onlinecounsellingcollege)
