Some of the most generous people have no money. Some of the wisest people have no education. Some of the kindest people were hurt the most.

One day you will your story of how you’ve overcome what you’re going through now and it will become part of someone’s survival guide.

You deserve happiness even if you’re not used to it.

When people set boundaries with you, it’s their attempt to continue the relationship with you. It’s not an attempt to hurt you.

I am an old soul. I love genuine kindness. I love compassion. I love poetry. I love soul connection. I love old books. I love deep conversations. I love depth. I love rawness.

I have a limited amount of time left on this planet, and I’m not gonna spend it being a watered down version of myself just so people can like me.

We didn’t understand as children that our parents still had work to do on themselves.

The reason life works at all is because not everyone in your tribe is nuts on the same day.

Sometimes you’ve got to look straight into the tired eyes of the woman staring back at you in the mirror and tell her that she deserves the best kind of love, the best kind of life, and devote yourself to giving it to her all over again.

I don’t want to suffer, so excuse me if I excuse myself from situations that suck all of my energy.

Watch the sunrise at least once a year, put a lot of marshmallows in your hot chocolate, lie on your back and look at the stars, never buy a coffee table you can’t put your feet on, never pass up a chance to jump on a trampoline, don’t overlook life’s small joys while searching for the big ones.

Divorce is okay. Breaking up is okay. Starting over is okay. Moving on is okay. Saying no is okay. Being alone is okay. What is not okay is staying somewhere where you aren’t happy, valued, or appreciated, that is not okay.

Stick with people who pull the magic out of you, not the madness.

When you finally learn that a person’s behavior has more to do with their own internal struggle than you, you learn grace.

You did the best you could with the knowledge you had in that moment. It’s easier to look back at an event and see a better choice or pathway because we already learned from our experience. Hindsight happens after the lesson, so we can’t condemn ourselves for not knowing the lesson before we learned it.

The broken will always be able to love harder than most. Once you’ve been in the dark, you learn to appreciate everything that shines.

Make it a habit to do nice things for people who’ll never find out.

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.

Your beliefs don’t make you a better person. Your behavior does.

It’s the small habits. How you spend your mornings. How you talk to yourself. What you read and what you watch. Who you share your energy with. Who has access to you. That will change your life.
