“They say find yourself, know yourself. But you know what, it’s harder than it sounds. Especially when you and yourself keep changing, because you can’t stop absorbing the world around you.
You’ll get it.
(Or you won’t.)”

How to start a wildfire: encourage other women with the hearts of lionesses to do the same.”

Quote of the Day – July 20, 2017
“Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. To be consciously aware of it, to experience love in ourselves and others, is the meaning of life. Meaning does not lie in things. Meaning lies in us.”

Quote of the Day – June 27, 2017
Hey all! So I failed you and forgot a quote of the day yesterday. I got home pretty late and went straight to bed.
Here is a beautiful, extra long, quote to help get you through Tuesday though! ❤
“Do you remember the first time you were called annoying?
how your breath stopped short in your chest
the way the light drained from your eyes, though you knew your cheeks were ablaze
the way your throat tightened as you tried to form an argument that got lost on your tongue?
your eyes never left the floor that day.
you were 13.
You’re 20 now, and i still see the light fade from your eyes when you talk about your interests for “too long,”
apologies littering every other sentence,
words trailing off a cliff you haven’t jumped from in 7 years.
I could listen to you forever, though i know speaking for more than 3 uninterrupted minutes makes you anxious.
all I want you to know is that you deserve to be heard
for 3 minutes
for 10 minutes
for 2 hours
there will be people who cannot handle your grace, your beauty, your wisdom, your heart;
mostly because they can’t handle their own.
but you will never be, and have never been, “too much.”

“Then, she became to breathe, and live, and every moment took her to a place where goodbyes were hard to come by. She was in love, but not in love with someone or something, she was in love with her life, and for the first time, in a long time, everything was inspiring.”

“She said, ‘I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or even just a friendly pat on the back.
I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.’”

I recognize and respect that you are part of this family, and so I will never exclude you from our activities, but still – your suggestions will NEVER be followed. You’re allowed to have a seat and you’re allowed to have a voice, but you are not allowed to have a VOTE.
You’re not allowed to fiddle with the temperature DUDE, you’re not even allowed to touch the radio. But, above all else, my DEAR old familiar friend, you are absolutely FORBIDDEN to drive.”
