Quote of the Week

Some steps need to be taken alone. It’s the only way to really figure out where you need to go and who you need to be.

~Mandy Hale

Quote of the Week

Sometimes being offered tenderness feels like the very proof that you’ve been ruined.

~Ocean Vuong

Quote of the Week

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.

~Brene Brown

Quote of the Week

Self-care is not selfish or self-indulgent. We cannot nurture others from a dry well. We need to take care of our own needs first.

~Jennifer Loudon

Quote of the Week

Wherever your life ends, it is all there. The advantage of living is not measured by length, but by use; some men have lived long, and lived little; attend to it while you are in it.

~Michel de Montaigne

Quote of the Week

It’s so much darker when a light goes out than it would have been if it had never shone.

~John Steinbeck

Quote of the Week

The best revenge is to be unlike him who performed the injury.

~Marcus Aurelius

Quote of the Week

Your value does not decrease based on someone’s inability to see your worth. 

-Ted Rubin

Quote of the Week

Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.

~Louise Erdrich

Quote of the Week

All you can do in life is to be who you are. Some people will love you for you. Most will love you for what you can do for them, and some won’t like you at all.

~Rita Mae Brown

Quote of the Week

Choose a path. Stay with your path. Be ready to face obstacles. Even if you take a wrong turn, at least it will be your turn, your life, your mistake.

~Naomi Levy

Quote of the Week

It’s always good to remember where you come from and celebrate it. To remember where you come from is part of where you’re going.

-Anthony Burgess

Quote of the Week

Some people bring out the worst in you, others bring out the best, and then there are those remarkably rare, addictive ones who bring out the most. Of everything. They make you feel so alive that you’d follow them straight into hell…

~Karen Marie Moning

And through their eyes, you start to see yourself the same way as someone who matters. As someone who can make a difference in the world. If you’re lucky enough to find this person, never let them go.

There will be a few times in your life when all your instincts will tell you to do something, something that defies logic, upsets your plans, and may seem crazy to others. When that happens, you do it. Listen to your instincts and ignore everything else. Ignore logic, ignore the odds, ignore the complications, and just go for it.
