Be a light in the dark. Shine brightly for those who have lost their way in the storm. Use your story to help another person continue their own. You are loved. You are significant. You belong here. Be blessed!

'Constantly torn between “if it’s meant to be, it will be” and “if you want it, go get it”'

The truth is both. To live a full life you have to go after your dreams wholeheartedly, you can’t sit back and wait for success to happen to you. But you must also accept that comes with no guarantees; you won’t always get what you want; you won’t always win; you won’t always feel amazing. Your victory is in the way you continue to you show up and live your life on a daily basis, no matter what the results, trials, or tribulations.

Sometimes in life, you fall down holes you can’t climb out of by yourself. That’s what friends and family are for—to help. They can’t help, however, unless you let them know you’re down there.

If you are feeling lonely today — like no one understands you, I just really want to encourage you to not hide in a cave. Talk to someone who loves you about how you are feeling. Let them into your secret world and your secret thoughts.

Don’t keep your feelings shoved down, it only brings more pain. You don’t deserve to spend your life in agony. You deserve community. You deserve people who embrace you and remind you to be gentle with yourself.

Even if they don’t understand you, they love you, they want to hear what you have to say. They will listen. They will hug you. They will help you to remember that loneliness isn’t your fate.

With love,

Above all else, we choose to stay. We choose to fight the darkness and the sadness, to fight the questions and the lies and the myth of all that’s missing. We choose to stay, because we are stories still going. Because there is still some time for things to turn around, time for surprises and for change. We stay because no one else can play our part.

- Jamie Tworkowski, “We’ll See You Tomorrow.”

And I don’t believe in such a thing as “happily ever after”. There’s only happily every now and then. I find the hardest trick is to recognize the now-and-thens, and to bask in them when they come. Happiness is a choice we make, like how to wear our hair, or having coffee with breakfast and tea at night.
