Let the past make you better, not bitter.

We are all capable of helping and hurting. We are all giving at times and selfish at others. Every last one of us has the potential for darkness and light. So forgive others, forgive yourself, look for light in the world, and shine your own. And never forget that people can grow and change. Never stop believing in the healing power of love and kindness. And most importantly, never stop believing in yourself.

Accept the fact that you will grow apart from people you’ve had significant relationships with. Understand when someone no longer positively affects your life. Let them go. Don’t hinder your growth.

Every day, in every way, I am getting better and better.

We cannot grow when we are in shame, and we can’t use shame to change ourselves or others.

I still have a long way to go, but I’m already so far from where I used to be, and I’m proud of that.

When life is sweet, say thank you and celebrate. When life is bitter, say thank you and grow.

Don’t exist. Live. Get out, explore. Thrive. Challenge authority. Challenge yourself. Evolve.

Life’s not about expecting, hoping and wishing, it’s about doing, being and becoming.

No person is your friend who demands your silence, or denies your right to grow.

I have endured, I have been broken, I have known hardship, I have lost myself. But here I stand, still moving forward, growing stronger each day.

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.

Sometimes the most valuable lessons come from people who didn’t intend to give them.

I owe no explanations for my flaws. I don’t have to justify my mistakes, my past or my insecurities. I am growing and learning. 

Worry less, smile more. Don’t regret, just learn and grow.

View your life with kindsight. Stop beating yourself up about things from your past. Instead of slapping your forehead and asking, ‘What was I thinking,’ breathe and ask yourself the kinder question, ‘What was I learning?’

The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes.

Stop beating yourself up.  You are a work in progress; which means you get there a little at a time, not all at once.

Fear, uncertainty, and discomfort are your compasses toward growth.

When something bad happens you have three choices. You can let it define you, let it destroy you, or you can let it strengthen you.
