"I’ve come to the conclusion that quite a lot of people are assholes. You give them attention, praise them, appreciate that which they are and that which they do, and slowly but surely, they take it all in, no longer giving back in return as they once did, their egos inflated by now, quite big and fluffy indeed. They think they have the upper hand now, that you are below them, somehow. I get great joy out of being aware of this happening. You really can find out someones core by doing this. Especially the moment in which you stop, and you pull away and move on. Oh how they come crawling back, bewildered as to why they no longer feel so great, or maybe they know, maybe they’re just terribly selfish. It’s quite unusual. And, all at the same time, wonderful, tremendous in fact, you find out those that are really by your side for the right reasons. The ones that never take your good will for granted, the ones that may even just love you back, and this is where the real beauty lies."
"Everyone seems to speak about living life to the fullest. About packing our bags and disappearing into the sunset to never return again, about living for supposed love, and happiness, and temporary joy, which is great, I do agree. But, what about also being responsible for the duty of being a human being. About realizing that every one of us each has a role to play in life, a talent, a gift, a calling, whatever it is you would like to call it, and it is with acknowledgement and honor to this dimension of our inner selves, some may call it the soul, that we may serve and show gratitude to this space in having existed in this life at all. It is quite easy to dismiss our calling, much easier to live for the fun in life or to feel as though we are being responsible humans by contributing to someone else who has claimed their birthright and dream with strength of mind, will, and hard work, but, something within me also feels it would be terribly sad to one day leave this world at the end of our time on Earth having simply lived a good life of memories, that even those, maybe even especially those that shy away from their own light are the ones that truly need to utilize their ability to be someone great, even if simply up to their own standards of greatness. No one feels good when they give up or when they pass on the opportunities that life presents to them, and it is not because of the supposed harshness of the world, but because deep down one knows that the harshness in the world is simply the harshness of allowing oneself the ability and freedom to truly shine."
Anonymous asked: Could you post one of those lists of questions you'd like to be asked? You're just so interesting!
Hey, thanks for the message. I can’t say I’ve ever seen one of those lists. Feel free to send me one :)
Brush away the soil and sight the green.
It’s going to be hard to let go of that which you know you must, but trust me when I say this, you need to. You need to let go of all that you’ve held on to. You need to do this to allow new to come into your life.
You need to do this for yourself.
Your depth, your roots, your past, all of it this is always going to be there. Deep, everlasting, like the roots of a tree beneath the Earth of the world. You will always feel and know that what has happened to you will always be apart of you. The good, and the bad. That is life, and it will always be life. But, trust, that now you are well beyond all that you have ever known. Well beyond it.
You are the strongest that you have ever been. You know more than you ever have. You are a wise tree about to enjoy your first season of being in bloom. Have no doubt.
Enjoy the journey.
You are currently on the path to your deepest dreams and desires.
Everything you’re doing. If its good, keep doing it. Don’t look back. Don’t stop and doubt your efforts.
There are going to be times you’re going to want to look back, you might even think its where you belong, but let me tell you something, if its where you belong, you would still be there.

Anonymous asked: What happened to your instagram? I cant find your posts anymore!
Hey there, unfortunately I’ve deleted it to focus my energy on my ventures at the moment. I’m quite a focused and passionate person so when I dedicate to something I like to give my all. I will definitely be back in the future! :) Thanks for asking!
Anonymous asked: Roze, Whatever happened to your India endeavor? I was so inspired by that dream of yours.
My darling, the dream still lives. I think back now, I like to believe, a little wiser, and I’m somewhat glad that I didn’t go.. 19 years old, alone. Maybe I was more alive then than I am now? I’m not sure, but, I do still wish to go once I have funnily enough mastered the art of the material world, and preferably, with a partner by my side.
Thanks for your message.
