Today was an avoidable, unnecessary, incomplete and internal battle that ended in defeat for a part of me I had to release, but I’m not quite sure that I feel free. And that’s okay.
Remember that someone smiles just knowing that you’re here. You make someone’s day better, you make them look forward to something and you make them fight through hard days. Someone’s world is better because you’re in it.
Some days, you simply only have to take care of yourself. Some days, that is your one and only mandatory job.
Life is too short not to be grateful today.
Life has no manual instructions on how to live and no maps to tell you where your life is going.
Know you are in charge of your life and yourself. You can’t control the negativity the world sends after you, but you determine how you react.
So it totally sucks when your partner is epically terrible at cheering you up. I mean, come on, it shouldn’t be that hard to get a smile out of me, right? Wrong.
Don’t try to pretend. Don’t wait for fate to turn your way again.
This is me standing up for sadness.
It’s a bad day, not a bad life.
