If I waited until I had all my ducks in a row, I’d never get across the street. Sometimes you just have to gather up what you’ve got and make a run for it.

In this life we are all just walking up the mountain, and we can sing as we climb or we can complain about our sore feet. Whichever we choose, we still gotta do the hike. I decided a long time ago singing made a lot more sense.

When things change inside you, things change around you.

Kindness is choosing love over hate, light over darkness, compassion over judgment.

No matter what you do, someone won’t be pleased. Someone will think your choices are wrong. And someone will tell you what should do instead. No matter which path you take, someone will seem to be doing better. Someone will have more than you. And someone else’s life may look more impressive on paper. If you’re being true to yourself, none of that will matter because you’ll have something more satisfying than approval and the illusion of “success”: a life that feels right for you, based on your own wants, needs, values, and priorities.

In the end, people will judge you anyway. So don’t live your life impressing others. Live your life impressing yourself.

It can feel scary to make a big decision knowing that the future is uncertain, but we can’t panic and obsess our way to clarity. Sometimes we simply need to get out of our head and give our heart some space to find the answer.

It’s okay to say no to things that drain you. Show up to what really matters.

Don’t judge people for the choices they make when you don’t know the options they had to choose from.

Clear your mind. Your heart is trying to tell you something.

I have decided to stop saying yes to people and situations that don’t support my well-being. Instead, I will say yes to my happiness, and yes to my growth, and yes to all the people and things that inspire me to be authentic and whole, while at the same time accepting me just as I am. My yes, from here on out, is my pledge to live honestly, my commitment to love myself fiercely, and my cry to create my best life possible. Yes.

The 3 C’s of life: choices, chances, and changes. You must make a choice to take a chance or your life will never change.

Don’t let your fear paralyze you. The scariest paths often lead to the most exciting places.

You never know how strong you are until being strong is your only choice.

If you’re looking for a sign from the universe, and you don’t see one, consider it a sign that what you really need is to look inside yourself.

There are no wrong turns, only unexpected paths.

Single is no longer a lack of options, but a choice. A choice to refuse to let your life by defined by your relationship status but to live every day Happily and let your Ever After work itself out.

You only have control over three things in your life—the thoughts you think, the images you visualize, and the actions you take.

Always follow your gut instinct, even if you do it a little late. It’s better to renege and risk being judged than it is to do something you don’t want to do because you’re afraid of how it will look.

The coolest people I’ve ever met have the most colorful pasts, they’ve lived lives of risk, made bad choices, learned lessons, explored, and they’re not afraid of being real. Tattered tapestries woven of similar threads, they’re my kind of people. My favorite shades of crazy.
