Friday Frills


I hope that I will always be for each person 
what he or she needs me to be.
I hope that my love for those whom I like will never lessen 
my love for those whom I do not.

I hope that another person's love for me will never 
be a measure of my love for him or her.

I hope that everybody will accept me as I am, 
but that I never will.

I hope that I will always ask for forgiveness from others...
but will never need to be asked for my own.

I hope that I will always recognize my limitations, 
but that I will construct none. 

I hope that loving will always be my goal,
 but that love will never be my idol.

I hope that everyone will always have hope.

♥ beautiful photo & text. I love your Friday Frills ^^

Thank you for the comment. It was really nice but hard to pick only 10 things from my closet, so I didn't tag anyone..But if you want and have spare time someday, do make one yourself - would be fun to see pieces of your wardrobe! :)

I'm always inspired by your Friday Frills. Another lovely quote and image!
It's good to be back even in a limited capacity now. I'm feeling better than I have in awhile and I'm hoping it lasts. I'm loving the drama series and my new mattress :) Thanks for all your encouragement and positivity sweetie! Have a wonderful weekend!

being a libra, i'm quite a chameleon and ppl get exactly what they want out of me, or what they want to see in me. but i need to be "me" take it or leave it.

This is a really interesting one.... I love the last sentiment about hoping that everyone always has hope because I think it's part of what drives amazing change in the world. However, couldn't help wondering if some of the other sentiments may be hard to achieve. Beautifully thought provoking. Happy Friday and I hope you have a lovely weekend planned!

What a beautiful quote! I have only come across a few of Henry Nouwen writings but never this one. I love the last line about hope and the one about love. Wishing you a lovely weekend!
