That is the simple secret of happiness. Whatever you are doing, don’t let past move your mind; don’t let future disturb you. Because the past is no more, and the future is not yet. To live in the memories, to live in the imagination, is to live in the non-existential. And when you are living in the non-existential, you are missing that which is existential. Naturally you will be miserable, because you will miss your whole life.

In order to see things differently, sometimes you need to see different things.

I am learning every day to allow the space between where I am and where I want to be to inspire me and not terrify me.

And if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself, get a better mirror, look a little closer, stare a little longer because there’s something inside you that made you keep trying, despite everyone that told you to quit. You built a cast around your broken heart, and signed it yourself. You signed, “they were wrong”
