“The way I see it, every life is a pile of good things and bad things. The good things don’t always soften the bad things, but vise versa, the bad things don’t always spoil the good things or make them unimportant.”
—Dr. Who, Matt Smith
“I am so beautiful, sometimes people weep when they see me. It has nothing to do with what I look like - it is just that I gave myself the power to say that I am beautiful, and if I could do that, then maybe there is hope for them too. And the great divide between the beautiful and the ugly will cease to be. Because we are all what we choose.”
As I get on my plane today I will picture all of my anxiety, stress and resentments towards my family being left here on the ground. I am not taking any of that shit with me.
“I advise you to say your dream is possible and then overcome all inconveniences, ignore all the hassles and take a running leap through the hoop, even if it is in flames.”
I chose hope.
Tomorrow, I will choose hope.
Every single day,
I have to choose hope.
Hope is what keeps me alive.
“If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride -and never quit, you’ll be a winner. The price of victory is high but so are the rewards.”
“And suddenly you know: It’s time to start something new and believe in the magic of beginnings.” - Meister Eckhart
“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn’t arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I’m going to be happy in it.”
We all fall short.
We all screw up.
We all make mistakes.
However, we are all capable of coming back from that - rising above and starting over.
Falling down is a part of life…
getting back up is living it.
You have been given a second chance,
another opportunity to continue living.
Right now, in this very moment -
you can make the choice to change your life.
“Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.”
