It’s okay to stop doing and just be.

A smart person knows what to say. A wise person knows whether or not to say it.

Pause and remember: Every single event in your life, especially the difficult lessons, have made you smarter, stronger, an wiser than you were yesterday.

One day we will realize that big hearts will bring us more peace than big weapons.

Don’t underestimate the healing power of these three things: music, the ocean, and the stars.

Some people and events are difficult to deal with, but they can only stress us if we let them. Breathe in calm, breathe out chaos, and anchor yourself in peace.

 You can be a good person with a kind heart and still say no.

Like a sandcastle, all is temporary. Build it, tend it, enjoy it. And when the time comes, let it go.

Thoughts fuel emotions. If you don’t like what you’re feeling, step back and example what you’re thinking. Pain is inevitable, but you’ll suffer a lot less if you disengage from your thoughts.

Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people.

Let go of control. You’ll feel instant relief.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Let it be.

A thought is harmless unless we believe it. It’s not our thoughts, but our attachment to our thoughts, that causes suffering. Attaching to a thought means believing that it’s true, without inquiring. A belief is a thought that we’ve been attaching to, often for years.

Sitting silently beside a friend who is hurting may be the best gift we can give.

You can never know how many lives you’ve touched, so just know it’s far more than you think. Even the tiniest acts of love, kindness, and compassion can have a massive ripple effect. You have made the world a better place, even if it doesn’t seem like.

Fill your life with experiences, not thing. Have stories to tell, not stuff to show.

Never think you are weak if you cry. Every tear is replaced with wisdom and strength.

Remember the time you thought you never could survive? You did it, and you can do it again.

You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you—it’s something inherent.

Don’t underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others. It’s our differences that make us unique and beautiful.
