Knowing how to be solitary is central to the art of loving. When we can be alone, we can be with others without using them as a means of escape.
Wildflower; pick up your pretty little head, It will get easier, your dreams are not dead.
Always make decisions that prioritize your inner peace.
It’s more than a bath; it’s a transformative experience. You’re searching for buoyancy in the soul, and spring in your step.
To be human is to be whole, but to fail to see this wholeness.
I believe we should demand the things our souls need. And not compromise. Not push these desires to the slagheap because we’ve been told they serve no useful purpose in our adult lives. Not tell our souls to go to their rooms because we are having this party for adults called life, and they will just be in the way because we’ll be talking about things the soul wouldn’t understand anyway. Not say it’s okay if we aren’t granted these things we need, because other people’s lives suck too.
All of life is constantly in motion. Desire keeps us moving. Desire inspires us to be brave, to dream, to create. Desire is our divine connection with the creative force of the universe.
My mother always says people should be able to take care of themselves, even if they're rich and important.
I lied and said I was busy. I was busy; but not in a way most people understand. I was busy taking deeper breaths. I was busy silencing irrational thoughts. I was busy calming a racing heart. I was busy telling myself I am okay. Sometimes, this is my busy - and I will not apologize for it.
Ignoring life's gentle nudges is like stepping off the curb, onto oncoming traffic. Tempt fate to knock you down, and it will. Pay attention to what doesn't feel right. If it feels wrong, it usually is. Trust your gut. It is your God-given GPS.
You shine like love You shine like hate until I can’t remember the difference
The day your demons awaken... Remember your favorite love-song. Sing it to yourself. Your inner child will hear you, it will remember the courage and strength with which it percevered before. The one that defeated those demons before, is forever resilient, and will defeat them again.
In order to live a fulfilling life, you must do as much (if not more) for yourself as you do for others. Sometimes we spend so much time caring for the next person we neglect to invest in ourselves. Remind yourself every day: Your needs, your aspirations, your success, and your goals also matter. It’s ok to be a shoulder, cheerleader, friend and support system; but remember, you deserve as good as you give.
Sensuality is knowing deep down within yourself that you’re going to be okay no matter what happens. It’s having faith that you’re fundamentally worthy whether you get what you want or don’t.
Truly, sacred rest is soul care. We honor quiet time alone with God. We intentionally step away from the chaos of life. We unplug from noise and distractions. We relish moments of tranquility.
When scientists analyze people who appear to have tremendous self-control, it turns out those individuals aren't all that different from those who are struggling. Instead, 'disciplined' people are better at structuring their lives in a way that does not require heroic willpower and self-control. In other words, they spend less time in tempting situations. The people with the best self-control are typically the ones who need to use it the least. It's easier to practice self-restraint when you don't have to use it very often.
Remember that work and life coexist. Wellness at work follows you home and vice-versa. The same goes for when you’re not well, fuelled, or fulfilled. Work and life aren’t opposing forces to balance; they go hand-in-hand and are intertwined as different elements of the same person: you.
... the decisions you make are your decisions. And without checking in with yourself and what you want or need, you’ll find that you start doing your work and living your life for everyone but yourself. That’s not productive, it’s not sustainable, and it’s certainly not fulfilling.
You can do this, and if you can't do it today, you'll do it tomorrow. You are not a failure.
Lineage, personality, and environment may shape you, but they do not define your full potential.
