Focus on being completely present when you’re having a conversation with another person. You’re going to fail at it a million times, you’re going to be distracted a million times. But the harder you work at it, the better you’ll get at listening genuinely and authentically to others.
The color you wear most often.
Listening to the sounds of nature.
Be thankful that happiness, self-discovery, and fulfillment are needs that you can focus on, because your immediate ones (food, shelter, clothing, health) are already taken care of.
We often convince ourselves that in order to figure out who we are, in order to find ourselves, we have to do something drastic. But that’s never the case.
Don’t grant people the authority to tell you you’re not worthy of the things you wish to pursue. Don’t give people the license to sway you or drown out the inner you, you know yourself better than anyone else.
Happiness isn’t a destination
Choose to be loved by the nakedness of your heart and mind and not by #ootd’s.
Integrity and character will always be more important than power and wealth.
You will have moments, sometimes within seconds of each other, in which you feel proud of yourself and disgusted with yourself at the same time.
