“To die to self means to die to human traits that cause us to stumble: deny sin, excuses, blame, self-pity, self-will, rebellion, complaining, reputation, injustice, guilt, wrong words, ungodly thoughts.” —Joyce Meyer (via agirlchangingtheworld)
“If you live in a world where you are the smartest person in the room, where everybody is pulling at you, everybody is drawing from you, everybody is nursing from the milk of your wisdom.. You are in the wrong room. You need to go into another room that makes you think again, that makes you read again, that makes you reignite your passion. You need to be around people who make deposits not just withdraws into your destiny.” —Bishop T.D. Jakes (via continuouslyevolving)
We aren't the girls who get 42 'likes' on our Facebook pictures, we aren't the girls that act dumb to get the guys, or that wear shorts with our asses hanging out. We care more about music than popularity. We are the girls who have laughing fits without worrying if our faces look weird, we are the girls who genuinely care about how you are, we are the girls who don't make a big deal of what you said 2 years ago, we're the girls who care more about being nice than who thinks that we're 'hot', we are the girls who can be quiet and often overlooked, but I guarantee we are the girls you'd rather be friends with.
