Acceptance

“I believe that we are who we choose to be. Nobody is going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself. Nobody is going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it. Nobody knows what you want except you, and nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it. So don't give up your dreams.” – Barry Manilow

“Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.”

“It's okay to not be okay all the time.”

"Sometimes good things fall apart, so better things can fall in their place."

"If you don’t have time for what matters, stop making time for what does not."

Live your life like it is an adventure no one is watching. Explore, Dance, Live, Laugh and Love. For this is the oldest you have even been and the youngest you will ever be again.

"Pain is passed down in families, until finally someone is ready to feel it."

"Accept what is, Let go of what was and have faith in what will be."

"Life is so much simpler, when you stop trying to explain yourself to others and just live your own life."

"Once I gave up expecting rain in the desert, I found bliss."

“Note to self: Beating yourself up for your flaws and mistakes won’t make you perfect, and you don’t have to be. Learn, forgive yourself, and remember: We all struggle; it’s just part of being human.” ~Lori Deschene

What a beautiful thing it is to be able to stand tall and say, "I fell apart, and I survived."

"Do you know what happens when you decide to stop worrying about what other people might think of you? You get to dance. You get to sing. You get to laugh loudly, paint, write, and create. You get to be yourself. Some people won't like you, but it won't bother you all that much."

“Stop criticizing yourself for everything you aren't and start appreciating yourself for everything you are."

"There is only ever going to be one you. And you are absolutely perfect at being you. No one can think like you, create like you, love like you. Don't hide your quirks and flaws. Own them. You're beautiful not in spite of them but because of them."

"A caterpillar must endure a season of isolation before it turns into a butterfly. Embrace the time you have alone, it will only make you stronger." ~Steven Aitchison

"To get over the past you first have to accept that the past is over. No matter how many times you revisit it, analyze it, sweat it, or regret it, it's over. The past can hurt you no more." ~Mandy Hale
