Effortless Ease

If not meow, when?

There are times when it will go so wrong that you will barely be alive, and times when you realize that being barely alive, on your own terms, is better than living a bloated half-life on someone else’s terms.

Love has a way of making us feel contractually obligated to stand by a person even when they’re slowly burying us along with them.

The Bravest Thing In Love, Shawn Binder (via thoughtcatalog)

"Elizabeth was enamoured from an early age. She never looked at anyone else. She was smitten from the start. In Prince Philip, she found her true love and the Queen has often acknowledged the tremendous support he has given to her - her rock.”

"Philip didn’t believe in public displays of affection, which made it easy to mask his feelings. But he revealed them privately in a touching letter to Queen Elizabeth in which he wondered if he deserved “all the good things which have happened to me, especially to have fallen in love completely and unreservedly.”
