They say your body is a temple, but I’ve never been the religious type.
Standing alone is better than standing with the wrong people. Standing alone is better than changing who you are so you can please others.
I’m learning the beauty of living in a place of ‘enoughness.’ Where right now is enough. Where I am enough. Where the people around me are more than enough. Where love is enough.
I’m slowly learning to forgive myself for being a person. For failing. For making mistakes. For failing other people and myself. I’m slowly learning to forgive myself breaking. For being overly emotional and sensitive. I’m slowly learning to forgive myself for hurting and healing and starting all over again.
I’m slowly learning that there are no timelines in life; just learning, living and evolving.
I was born a Jackson Pollock painting when I wanted to be a Gustave Courbet.
I’m learning how to let what’s meant for me find me instead of actively searching for it or convincing myself that it’s right around the corner.
Look inside for happiness, not outside.
You cannot change the past, but what you can change is the present—who and where you are right now.
I’m slowly learning that things that didn’t work out will eventually work out. In another year, with another person, in a different city, in an unexpected way.
