Maybe the idea of ‘perfection’ only exists to drive you forward, but if you got there you wouldn’t want to stay anyhow.
Knowing I have an extraordinary girl rooting for me, I can sleep peacefully in my own arms, because I know what it is to be loved.
They get a lot of energy from the happiness of others. Nothing thrills them more than simply knowing that the people they care most about are happy. And when you can get joy from something like that, you can’t help but feel pretty damn lucky.

Be you, whoever that is right now, and don’t convince yourself that you have to explain your existence to anyone. Make the choices that you think are right, take care of yourself, and always aim to make someone else’s day a little better.
The belief that a happy life and an easy life are the same thing. An easy life means no difficult choices, no heartache, no challenges, no fear, no rejection, no failure. But an easy life also means no adventure, no growth, no thrill, no risk, no appreciation for joy, and no love so great that it feels like your heart could burst.
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.
The belief that you are special.
Washing your face after a long day.
In a long-gone past.
