Being Quiet

"One of the risks 
of being quiet 
is that other people 
can fill your silence 
with their own interpretation: 

You’re bored. 
You’re depressed. 
You’re shy. 
You’re stuck up. 
You’re judgmental. 

When others can’t read us, 
they write their own story
—not always one we choose 
or that’s true to who we are."

~ Sophia Dembling :)

Help those who need you. 
Forgive those who hurt you.

“With everything that has happened to us, 
we can either feel sorry for ourselves 
or treat what has happened as a gift. 
Everything is either 
an opportunity to grow 
or an obstacle to keep us from growing. 
We get to choose.”

~ Wayne Dyer :)

“We too often care 
what others think 
about the parts of us 
that don’t matter 
and don’t listen 
to the opinions 
that speak of the parts 
that do.”

~ Wen L. :)

Same Words

“We can say the same things 
but feeling them infinitely more 
through time only brings us back 
to the same words we had before.”

Our Stories

"Our stories are all so many things: 
Heavy and light. 
Beautiful and difficult. 
Hopeful and uncertain. 
But our stories are not finished yet. 
There is still time, 
for things to heal 
and change 
and grow. 
There is still time 
to be surprised. 
We are still going, 
you and I. 
We are stories 
still going.”

~ Jamie Tworkowski :)

Be With Someone

“Be with someone 
who we do not have to hide from, 
in any way. 
Whether it is our morning face 
before we have put our make up on, 
an embarrassing story to tell 
about something that happened on our way home, 
or an ambition we have had since we were six… 
make sure we end up 
with someone who knows all of it 
and still loves us. 
A person we can tell our whole life to 
is a person worth spending a life with.”

Who I Am

"Please do not ask me who I am.
My whole being cannot be confined to words.
I am not just a body.
I am complete emotions and memories
and scents and places.
I am a galaxy with stardust in my crevasses.
While the storms are vicious
and earthquakes are deep,
the world within myself has held worse.
I am not just a person.
I am a world held together by bones.
I am an adventure restricted by skin."

~ Author Unknown :)

Strong people forgive.
Intelligent people ignore."

"Sometimes we just need someone.
It doesn't matter who it is.
Just someone to remind us 
what it is like to live in a moment,
and feel something before we walk away."

Nice But Not Stupid

Being Honest

“Being honest may not 
get us a lot of friends 
but it will always get us 
the right ones.”

“I think communication starts 
when words are not present at all… 
I think we put so much emphasis on language, 
actually silence is so much more important.”

Taste and See

“We have been invited to taste and see.
Do not be satisfied to just believe and agree.”

Scented Memories

"It startled me 
how a present smell 
could drown me 
in the past’s sea of nostalgia. 
Isn’t it strange 
how time 
keeps our emotions 
chronologically categorized 
in a file cabinet of 
scented memories?" 

~ Lauren B. :)

We Love

“My mom taught me 
one thing: 
We don’t always 

have to tell people 
we love them. 
We just have to 
give them no reason 
to doubt it,
through our 
actions and attitude.”

~ Julienne I. :)

Need To

"There are oceans my toes haven’t kissed 
and lessons I haven’t learned. 
There are souls I need to meet and love. 
There are gifts I need to give 
and moments I need to live."

~ Lauren B. :)
