All my life I’ve thought I needed someone to complete me. Now I know I belong to myself.

Speak the truth even if your voice shakes.

Imagine this: If you had $86,400 in an account and someone stole $10 from you, would you be upset and throw all of the remaining $86,390 away in hopes of getting back at the person who took your $10? Or move on and live? Right, move on and live. See, we have 86,400 seconds each day. Don’t let someone’s negative 10 seconds ruin the remaining 86,390. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Life is bigger than that.

Accept that you will never be perfect, life will always have challenges, and other people will sometimes disappoint you. Acceptance is the first step toward peace.

Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them.

You are not too old and it is not too late.

The greatest gift you can give someone is your time, because when you give your time you are giving a portion of your life that you will never get back.

It’s OK to be different. It’s OK to be unique. It’s OK to be weird. It’s OK to stand out.

Wake up today knowing that whatever happens, you can handle it.

I woke up. I have clothes to wear. I have running water. I have food to eat. I am thankful.

One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is thanking them for being part of your life.

Today be thankful and think how rich you are. Your family is priceless. Your health is wealth. Your time is gold.

Love is the ability and willingness to allow those that you care for to be what they choose for themselves without any insistence that they satisfy you.

Breathe. You’re going to be okay. Breathe and remember that you’ve been in this place before. You’ve been this uncomfortable and anxious and scared, and you’ve survived. Breathe and know that you can survive this too. These feelings can’t break you. They’re painful and debilitating, but you can sit with them and eventually, they will pass. Maybe not immediately, but sometime soon, they are going to fade and when they do, you’ll look back at this moment and laugh for having doubted your resilience. I know it feels unbearable right now, but keep breathing, again and again. This will pass. I promise it will pass.

Always try to leave people better than you found them. Hug the hurt. Kiss the broken. Befriend the lost. Love the lonely.

Don’t let yourself be controlled by three things: people, money, or past experiences.

Today I will not stress over things I can’t control.

Forgiveness is the choice to see people as they are now. When we’re mad at people, we’re angry because of something they said or did before this moment. By letting go of the past, we make room for miracles to replace our grievances.

You only have so much emotional energy each day. You can use it to fight with people, resist the present, and worry about the future, or you can agree to disagree, accept the present, and use your energy to create the future. Which will you choose?

No matter what people think of you, always keep singing your own song.
