Hi, I'm Courtney. I'm just a 22-year old, trying to figure out her place in this beautiful place. So many wonderful things are just waiting to be seen and explored, and I hope to do just that for the rest of my life. I hope to find the beauty in others as often as possible. I hope to overcome my fears and insecurities so I can live life to the fullest and glorify God with my whole heart. All of my hope is in my Savior, who has saved me and showered me in grace so much more than I deserve.. and for that, I'm thankful. You should be to. I love meeting new people and making new friends, so talk to me!

I know that you think I’m kind of odd, but if your love was a mountain, I swear that I’d climb to the top. I’d tell you “you’re lovely and everything I’ll ever need, and I’d give you my all if you’d just come and stand next to me.” [x]

Most things about me are hard to explain, I guess, like how I’m mostly delusional and live in a half-imaginary world but am also a realist to the core. I’m just a bunch of contradictions most of the time and I don’t like it, but I also do.

Life lessons my mother has taught me from the side of her hospital bed (part 2/2 of a series) /// r.i.d  (via oprosti)

(via gardensandyou)

1. Who you are now is not who you will be in 10 years. It is okay to be somebody new 10 minutes from now. We are always learning. We are always growing. If you realized 10 seconds ago that you don’t like who you are, shed your skin, retry, replant yourself in good soil.

2. Cleaning is instant therapy. When your brain is muddy, take a shower, wash your hands, change your clothes. Spend 15 minutes straightening your living room. When you are angry, scrub things. I know it’s crazy but it works instantly.

3. Forgive someone’s debt if it’s under 50 dollars, forgive the small things, give a little time to yourself and forgive the big things too. Forgiveness isn’t about the other person, it’s about you. That being said - if someone ever hurts you in a way that would make me cry to know, you get out of there, my love. You just get up and go.

4. Gum karma is real and if you spit out a piece in public expect to find some on your shoe in the future. Same goes for insults and harsh judgement, too.

5. Do what you love and the money will follow.

6. Live your life with an open palm and give as much as you can and as often. At some point in your life, someone will lend you 50 bucks when you’re down on your luck. Remember how that feels. Remember to give that back.

7. Always wear clean underwear. You’ll thank me later.

8. There is a difference between being kind and being passive and there are those who cannot see that difference. They will try to walk all over you. Never bend your knees for those who do.

9. Have faith. Have faith in god or people or yourself or science or in luck or in all of the above. Faith is what keeps us going, faith is what keeps us strong.

10. Pay your bills on time whenever you can, although money is nothing. Remind yourself that.

11. Do not forget you were once ignorant of all you know now. Be patient of anyone who hasn’t had the education you have. Speak at the level of the person you are with - it’s not playing dumb, it’s being considerate. There’s no reason to make them feel uncomfortable. Plus then when someone starts going off about their superior IQ, you can cut them to pieces and watch their face when you do.

12. You are the best person in the room for one particular thing, and that’s confidence. You are the worst person in the room for another thing, and that’s humility. Use both carefully.

13. Never make fun of someone’s beliefs or superstitions, let your kid keep their imaginary friend and let your best buddy believe in knocking on wood. We all have security blankets. Don’t take away someone else’s.

14. Try to learn something new every day.

15. The worse you look, the more likely you are to run into someone you know so instead of feeling awkward, learn to be confident in sweats while talking to your friends.

16. Never go to bed angry, it will ruin your sleep and make tomorrow even harder. Find a way to relax. Don’t let today get to your head.

17. Think before you speak. When someone says something, mull over their words before answering. This is called listening, it is different than hearing.

18. What keeps love beautiful is that there’s risk involved. If he breaks your heart and it doesn’t hurt, it wasn’t love in the first place.

19. Never let someone else determine who you are or how happy. You are too strong to be torn apart.

20. I love you, even when we are fighting, even when I am fast asleep. Don’t doubt it for an instant. You are my everything.

…and don’t tell me I’m “not like other girls.” Belittling other women is not a way to charm me. The only thing that’s wrong with “other girls” is the mentality that sets women up against each other as if there’s something innate to femininity that we should rise above. Hang around longer and you’ll see that I am like other girls. Dare to stay even longer to realize that there’s nothing wrong with that.

Don’t ever compliment me by insulting other women. That’s not a compliment, it’s a competition none of us agreed to.
