The biggest lesson I’ve learned is, “It’s okay.” It’s okay for me to be kind to myself. It’s okay to be wrong. It’s okay to get mad. It’s okay to be flawed. It’s okay to be happy. It’s okay to move on.
Hayley Williams - ORIGIN Magazine (via paramore-is-the-future)

I wasn’t as ready as I thought I’d be, but that’s okay. I am the best me at this very moment; I won’t give up, I’ll keep trying.

But today I learned I have enough dignity and integrity to do what is right and be true to myself.

It’s okay because I believe it.

It all boils down to this.


Most people won’t admit it, or don’t even realize it, but

caring for people takes energy out of you.

Investing your time and attention making sure somebody knows

that you love them and that you want to ensure their well-being can drain you:

  • mentally
  • emotionally
  • spiritually
  • even physically.

Love people, but take care of yourself.

Don’t burn yourself out.

We think sometimes we’re only drawn to the good, but we’re actually drawn to the authentic. We like people who are real more than those who hide their true selves under layers of artificial niceties.

Elisabeth Kübler-Ross (via creatingaquietmind)

Amen, Kubler-Ross

I wish I was stronger.

Let me wish, hope, and pray.

I’m allowed to stop actually pushing myself forward and just linger.

I am here, I am now.

Let me wish, let me hope, let me pray.
