One More Day.

Have you ever lost someone you love and wanted one more conversation, one more chance to make up for the time when you thought they would be here forever? If so, then you know you can go your whole life collecting days, and none will outweigh the one you wish you had back. – Mitch Albom, For One More Day

Authenticity.

Never idealize others. They will never live up to your expectations. Don’t over-analyse your relationships. Stop playing games. A growing relationship can only be nurtured by genuineness. Leo F. Buscaglia

Learning to Love Myself.

When you stop comparing yourself to others, you’ll become truly happy. Before you can truly BE yourself, you have to learn to LOVE yourself fearlessly and effortlessly. We are all magical. Be inspired. Get Creative. Love wholeheartedly. Simple things we can all do. “Sometimes you have to lose yourself in the moon and the stars to find yourself in the sun and the sky “- Penqwen   M

Letting Go.

“You get what you give. I think you can’t expect someone to treat you a certain way. Whatever it is, if you’re getting a lot of negative energy or anger, you have to say, ‘Why am I getting this?

I don’t understand why people feel the need to judge others, whether its based off of wealth, beauty, appearance, or intelligence. First of all who cares. Let people live their life. If you don’t have something positive to say about someone then you shouldn’t have to say it at all or if you don’t mean something don’t bother to say it. It’s scary to realize how many people fail to realize that words hurt. What we say and do to others matter. Just because you can’t see how someone ‘reacts’ to what you said doesn’t mean that it didn’t hurt…
