Find the time to read, to smell the flowers, to paint your dreams, to have coffee with a friend, to learn a new craft, to write a letter, to bake a surprise cake, to go somewhere special, to really be with the person you love, or even do nothing for a while…

Adult friendships are hard. Everyone is busy and life happens. I’ve learned you gotta text people when you’re thinking of them. A simple ‘Thinking of you, hope all is well’ really goes a long way.

Balance isn’t fitting everything in. It’s starting with what’s important and letting the rest fall as it will.

Don’t tell a mother she looks tired; she already knows that. Tell her she’s doing a great job; she may not know that.

Sometimes I punish myself for having unproductive days, but then I’m reminded that I’m only human and breaks are necessary. Don’t feel guilty for putting something on pause temporarily while you reconnect with yourself and find a balance. Remember, your mental health comes first.

Mental health is sooo important. If you need a day, take a day. Find something to relax you. Bubble bath, nature, writing, painting, etc. Just do it.

Your mental health is more important than your career, money, other people’s opinions, that event you said you would attend, your partner’s mood and your family’s wishes, combined. If taking care of yourself means letting someone down, then let someone down.

Please remember to check in on your strong friend, your busy friend, your happy friend, your ‘seems to handle everything well’ friend.

When the world feels like an emotional roller coaster, steady yourself with simple rituals. Do the dishes. Fold the laundry. Water the plants. Simplicity attracts wisdom.

Note to self: I don’t have to take this day all at once, but rather, one step, one breath, one moment at a time. I am only one person. Things will get done when we get done.

In today’s rush, we all think too much, seek too much, want too much and forget about the joy of just being.

It’s not about ‘having’ time. It’s about making time. If it matters, you will make time.

Slow down. Calm down. Don’t worry. Don’t hurry. Trust the process.

There’s no such thing as being too busy. If you really want something, you’ll make time for it.

Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.

It’s not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: what are we busy about?

Don’t count every hour in the day, make every hour in the day count.

Beware the barrenness of a busy life.

There is more to life than increasing its speed.

If you are too busy to laugh, you are too busy.
