There are only two days in the year that nothing can be done. One is called yesterday and the other is called tomorrow, so today is the right day to love, believe, do, and mostly, live.

Family is anyone who loves you unconditionally.

Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you do meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you are sure of yourself.

I learned that things don’t always turn out the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I’ve learned that there are things that go wrong that don’t always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I’ve learned that some broken things stay broken, and I’ve learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.

You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend.

Breakups hurt, but losing someone who doesn’t respect and appreciate you is actually a gain, not a loss.

Alone doesn’t always mean lonely. Relationship doesn’t always mean happy. Being alone will never cause as much loneliness as being in the wrong relationship.

Health does not always come from medicine. Most of the time it comes from peace of mind, peace in the heart, peace of soul. It comes from laughter and love.

Having somewhere to go is home. Having someone you love is family. Having both is a blessing.

Being genetically related doesn’t make you family. Love, support, trust, sacrifice, honesty, protection, acceptance, security, compromise, gratitude, respect and loyalty are what make you family.

Just a reminder in case your mind is playing tricks on you today: You matter. You’re important. You’re loved. And your presence on this earth makes a difference, whether you see it or not.

If you love someone tell them, because hearts are often broken by words left unspoken.

Two things you will never have to chase: true friends and true love.

When you have to start compromising yourself or your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Be there. Be open. Be honest. Be kind. Be willing to listen, understand, accept, support, and forgive. This is what it means to love.

Love is not what you say. Love is what you do.

Don’t change to win someone’s heart. Stay true and you’ll find someone who likes you for being you.

Try to hold onto your faith in people. Hope and love accomplish a lot more than cynicism and judgment.

The greatest gifts you can give someone are your time, your love, and your attention.

Don’t be afraid to get back up again—to try again, to love again, to live again, and to dream again. Don’t let a hard lesson harden your heart.
