To laugh often and love much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch...to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded! ~Ralph Waldo Emerson

My name is Courtney, These are my thoughts, my wishes, my dreams.

  3. Find someone who makes you realize three things: one, that home is not a place, but a feeling. Two, that time is not measured by a clock, but by moments. And three, that heartbeats are not heard, but felt and shared.

    is a reflection of you

  5. And kid, you’ve got to love yourself. You’ve got wake up at four in the morning, brew black coffee, and stare at the birds drowning in the darkness of the dawn. You’ve got to sit next to the man at the train station who’s reading your favorite book and start a conversation. You’ve got to come home after a bad day and burn your skin from a shower. Then you’ve got to wash all your sheets until they smell of lemon detergent you bought for four dollars at the local grocery store. You’ve got to stop taking everything so goddam personally. You are not the moon kissing the black sky. You’ve got to compliment someones crooked brows at an art fair and tell them that their eyes remind you of green swimming pools in mid July. You’ve got to stop letting yourself get upset about things that won’t matter in two years. Sleep in on Saturday mornings and wake yourself up early on Sunday. You’ve got to stop worrying about what you’re going to tell her when she finds out. You’ve got to stop over thinking why he stopped caring about you over six months ago. You’ve got to stop asking everyone for their opinions. Fuck it. Love yourself, kiddo. You’ve got to love yourself.

"Kissing The Wave" by huebucket on INPRNT
  10. Before you touched me,
    I was a cage full of
    wild things.

    My mother used to say,

    ‘be wary of wolves,
    they can smell
    the beds of lambs
    from miles away.’

    so every night
    I would sleep naked
    and wake up smelling of the moon,
    for my mother never knew,
    that it is not the wolf
    who sleeps with the lamb,
    it is the lamb who must first learn
    how to run with the wolves.

    What I’m trying to say is,
    I always wondered
    what hell would feel like.
    I just never imagined
    that I would love it
    so goddamn much.
