  • Your passions are your compass.
  • You are bigger than what is making you sad.
  • "Have a goal. Waking up earlier. Smiling. Starting to run. Making this recipe. Buying this blanket. Discovering the universe. Singing. Sewing. Having your own shop. Sleeping well. Going to this specific place. Being in peace with yourself. Taking a picture on top of the Everest. No matter the kind of goal, have one. And fight for it. Wake up every day with motivation and fall asleep with a smile. Live your life to the fullest, ever second. Do exactly what you want and accomplish it. You are the master of your life. You decide. You create. So go. Never doubt your capacities, and go."
  • Reminder for when you think the only option is to give up: "Remember the time you thought you never could survive? You did, and you can do it again."
  • "But at some point you have to stop being so angry, you have to stop being so sad, you have to stop killing yourself and start being gentle with yourself. At some point you have to just let it all go and be happy, you have to spread love instead of being afraid of it. You have to love yourself and everyone around you before it's too late. Don't waste away being unhappy over trivial things. Don't do it. Don't do it to yourself and don't let other people do it to you."
  • "And if you need to tell yourself that you are awesome and brilliant, do that. Support yourself, root for yourself, know that you can, and you will. This is your time."
  • "Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don't belong."
  • "You have to continue to work even when you’re not being praised. You have to dig deep and go the extra mile because breakthroughs don’t happen when you do the bare minimum. It has to come from you and be for you. It all comes down to you."
  • “The fact that you’re struggling doesn’t make you a burden. It doesn’t make you unloveable or undesirable or undeserving of care. It doesn’t make you too much or too sensitive or too needy. It makes you human. Everyone struggles. Everyone has a difficult time coping, and at times, we all fall apart. During these times, we aren’t always easy to be around — and that’s okay. No one is easy to be around one hundred percent of the time. Yes, you may sometimes be unpleasant or difficult. And yes, you may sometimes do or say things that make the people around you feel helpless or sad. But those things aren’t all of who you are and they certainly don’t discount your worth as a human being. The truth is that you can be struggling and still be loved. You can be difficult and still be cared for. You can be less than perfect, and still be deserving of compassion and kindness.” - Daniell Koepke
  • “I began to realize how important it was to be an enthusiast in life. If you are interested in something, no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead. Embrace it with both arms, hug it, love it and above all become passionate about it. Lukewarm is no good. Hot is no good, either. White hot and passionate is the only thing to be.” - Roald Dahl
  • “Life always give us exactly the teacher we need at every moment. This includes every mosquito, every misfortune, every red light, every traffic jam, every obnoxious supervisor, every illness, every loss, every moment of joy or depression, every addiction, every breath. Every moment is the guru.” - Charlotte Joko Beck
  • “There is nothing more beautiful than seeing a person being themselves. Imagine going through your day being unapologetically you.” - Steve Maraboli
  • “‎Close your eyes & imagine the best version of you possible. That’s who you really are, let go of any part of you that doesn’t believe it.” - C. Assaad
  • “Develop an interest in life as you see it; the people, things, literature, music - the world is so rich, simply throbbing with rich treasures, beautiful souls and interesting people. Forget yourself.” - Henry Miller
  • “Go into the arts. I’m not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.” - Kurt Vonnegut
  • People need to be encouraged. People need to be reminded of how wonderful they are. People need to be believed in—told that they are brave and smart and capable of accomplishing all the dreams they dream and more. Remind each other of this. - S.J.S.
  • Find a beautiful piece of art. If you fall in love with Van Gogh or Matisse or John Oliver Killens, or if you fall love with the music of Coltrane, the music of Aretha Franklin, or the music of Chopin - find some beautiful art and admire it, and realize that that was created by human beings just like you, no more human, no less. — Maya Angelou
  • Find life experiences and swallow them whole. Travel. Meet many people. Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. Try everything. Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life. — Lawrence K. Fish
