The people for me show me how the power of compassion beats the brute force of cruelty, how the strength of love trumps anger and hate. They are the ones whose hearts grow bigger with disaster and adversity, rather than smaller. They have mastered the fine art of transforming pain into creativity, rather than inflicting it onto, and damaging someone else.
They are unashamedly feminine and girlish. They remind men of first love high-school crushes that they never really got over.
Millennials have mistakenly assumed that playing around and breaking people’s hearts is cool. That not seeming to care and being emotionless is desirable.
Let 2017 be the year that you practice minimalism and try to be less materialistic. Buy less, think less, do less, and breathe more. Get rid of the unnecessary clutter of toxic people, negative thoughts, and useless objects in your life.
We are too scared to stop and think, because it is in those moments of quiet we realize that we are not living the lives we would like to. Worse yet, we are not even trying.
Experience does not reduce us, but creates more space for maturity, empathy and strength. There are so many ways in which we let our pasts govern us.
