"And I understand. I understand why people hold hands: I’d always thought it was about possessiveness, saying ‘This is mine’. But it’s about maintaining contact. It is about speaking without words. It is about I want you with me and don’t go."
"Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it."
"If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the present."
Franscesca Ramsey - My inspiration of the day
"Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we’re here we should dance."
"There are times when we do not recognize that it is time for us to move forward. When life is ready for us to move and we resist, life will move us by any means necessary. What may feel like a disaster is actually a graduation. Remain open to being guided, supported and protected by the universe."
"how far have you walked for men who’ve never held your feet in their laps?
how often have you bartered with bone, only to sell yourself short?
why do you find the unavailable so alluring?
where did it begin? what went wrong? and who made you feel so worthless?
if they wanted you, wouldn’t they have chosen you?
all this time, you were begging for love silently, thinking they couldn’t hear you, but they smelt it on you, you must have known that they could taste the desperate on your skin?
and what about the others that would do anything for you, why did you make them love you until you could not stand it?
how are you both of these women, both flighty and needful?
where did you learn this, to want what does not want you?
where did you learn this, to leave those that want to stay?"
"Don’t let yourself be controlled by three things: people, money, or past experiences"
"Stop criticizing yourself. Take a moment to look yourself in the face, at least 3x a day, and say, “I love you.”"
