Daily inspiration for a summer filled with love & light ☀

  • 6/1/2019: "It can be frustrating, and angering, and so deeply disappointing when our anticipated future doesn't play out as we had imagined in our minds. But, I have found that embracing the awkward transitions and periods in your life, when you are full of uncertainty and short on faith, is what brings the best growth. ¶ Lean into the discomfort. Take it as a challenge. Let the pressure devour you and spit you back out as the next best version of yourself that is stronger, more patient, more accepting, and more humble." –Julia West
