Some days you will have to allow yourself to feel, so that someday, you will allow yourself to heal.
No matter what we’re going through, no matter how heavy a burden laid upon our hearts, no matter how shattered and tired we feel—that breakage won’t last forever. Pain is only temporary.
The tortoise always gets to the finish line, regardless of what the hare does. That’s the part of the story we were never really told.
I am muscles building cells, a little every day, because they broke that day,
but bones are stronger once they heal.
I never thought the odious nightmare would end, but hours later Florida’s atmosphere was back to normalcy. Yet, everything I grew to know and love as a child was destroyed at my feet.
You are loved in your light, in your dark, and in every shadow in-between
You don’t have to be hard on yourself just because your reality doesn’t live up to your expectations. You don’t have to stress yourself out just because things don’t fall according to your plans.
We face death and heartache and abuse and loss and self-hatred and anxiety and fear and frustration, and yet, from all of that pain, we rise.
One thing you don’t realize is how beautiful you are, on the inside and out. One thing you don’t realize is the perfect imperfection you are, powerful in ways that cannot be explained.
It’s okay to need people. It’s okay to need help. It’s okay to not be able to fight through the world’s chaos alone. You’re not meant to.
