jump off cliffs all the time and build your wings on the way down.
To know yourself - live different experiences.
There’s like a million different ways to say “I love you,”
“put your seat belt on,”
“watch your step,”
“get some rest,” …you’ve just got to listen.”
Until you heal the wounds of your past, you are going to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex; But eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, Stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories and make peace with them.
— Iyanla Vanzan
We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living.
We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on.
But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive.
- Thich Nhat Hanh
Sometimes the people closest to you can be the ones holding you back the most.
