The tiny seed knew that in order to grow, it needed to be dropped in dirt, covered in darkness, struggle to reach the light.

We can’t just choose to be happy, but we can choose to be kind to ourselves when we’re sad. Pain passes more quickly when we don’t berate ourselves for feeling it.

Be alone. Eat alone, take yourself on dates, sleep alone. In the midst of this you will learn about yourself. You will grow, you will figure out what inspires you, you will curate your own dreams, your own beliefs, your own stunning clarity, and when you do meet the person who makes your cells dance, you will be sure of it, because you are sure of yourself.

I learned that things don't always turn out the way you planned, or the way you think they should. And I've learned that there are things that go wrong that don't always get fixed or get put back together the way they were before. I've learned that some broken things stay broken, and I've learned that you can get through bad times and keep looking for better ones, as long as you have people who love you.

If you have a bad day, remember that tomorrow is a wonderful gift and a new chance to try again.

Nothing is more important than empathy for another human being’s suffering. Nothing—not career, not wealth, not intelligence, certainly not status. We have to feel for one another if we’re going to survive with dignity.

You fall, you rise, you make mistakes, you live, you learn. You’re human, not perfect. You’ve been hurt, but you’re alive. Think of what a precious privilege it is to be alive—to breathe, to think, to enjoy, and to chase the things you love. Sometimes there is sadness in our journey, but there is also lots of beauty. We must keep putting one foot in front of the other even when we hurt, for we will never know what is waiting for us just around the bend.

As we grow older and wiser, we begin to realize what we need and what we need to leave behind. Sometimes there are things in our lives that aren’t meant to stay. Sometimes the changes we don’t want are the changes we need to grow. And sometimes walking away is a step forward.

Relax. You are enough. You do enough. Breathe extra deep, let go, and just live right now in this moment.

I like weird people. The black sheep, the odd ducks, the rejects, the eccentrics, the loners, the lost and forgotten. More often than not, these people have the most beautiful souls.

To get over the past, you first have to accept that the past is over. No matter how many times you revisit it, analyze it, regret it, or sweat it, it’s over. It can hurt you no more.

Life can still be beautiful, meaningful, fun, and fulfilling even if things don’t turn out the way you planned.

Everybody’s got a past. The past doesn’t equal the future unless you live there.

Silence isn’t empty. It’s full of answers.

Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath, relax, and let things go. Focus on what matters to you and who matters in your life. The rest will work itself out. Just take it one step at a time.

Breakups hurt, but losing someone who doesn’t respect and appreciate you is actually a gain, not a loss.

Alone doesn't always mean lonely. Relationship doesn't always mean happy. Being alone will never cause as much loneliness as being in the wrong relationship.

Never underestimate the healing power of listening to your favorite music on full blast while jumping around the house like an idiot.

Health does not always come from medicine. Most of the time it comes from peace of mind, peace in the heart, peace of soul. It comes from laughter and love.

Don't be so quick to believe what you hear because lies spread faster than the truth.
