the best kind of friendships are fierce lady friendships where you aggressively believe in each other, defend each other, and think the other deserves the world.

Dark Paradise // Lana Del Rey

"Every time I close my eyes, it’s like a dark paradise."


The Rumblr’s in-house astrologer, Madame Clairevoyant, presents her latest dispatch from the stars:

Scorpio: This week, the light might change or the wind might shift; this week, there can be so much room for you to grow, for you to make choices, for you to keep moving. You don’t have to move fast and you don’t have to know where you’re going, just don’t stand still for too long. Try to use your time to build the life you want in the world you want. Try to treat your life like weird magic thing that it is. Try to keep filling your heart with joy.

“People are not lazy, difficult, selfish..etc, but through the reality of sin, people can chose to act lazy, do things that make other’s lives more difficult, and act selfishly. These actions, however, do not define a person. Humanity was created for a high and good purpose, and acting against that purpose deprives people from experiencing their true identity in Christ. Labeling others only works against the accuser and accused. I have called my brother lazy because I want him to change. But instead of encouraging change in his life, I begin to create a self-fulfilling prophecy. People identify themselves by the negative labeling they’ve been subjected to. The labels seem to be inescapable. The fight seems futile. We think to ourselves, “I’ve tried not to be____, but my family still sees me that way. Maybe I am just a ___ person.””

“Failure is a badge of honor. Be willing to get out there again and fail… If you’re waiting for anxiety and fear and self-doubt to go away, you’re going to wait forever.”
