People know your name, not your story.
They’ve heard what you’ve done,
but not what you’ve been through.
So take their opinions of you with a grain of salt.
In the end, it’s not what others think,
it’s what you think about yourself that counts.
Sometimes you have to do
exactly what’s best for you and your life,
not what’s best for everyone else.
“The world is increasingly designed to depress us.
Happiness isn’t very good for the economy.
If we were happy with what we had,
why would we need more?
How do you sell an anti-ageing moisturizer?
You make someone worry about ageing.
How do you get people to vote for a political party?
You make them worry about immigration.
How do you get them to buy insurance?
By making them worry about everything….
To be calm becomes a kind of revolutionary act.
To be happy with your own non-upgraded existence.
To be comfortable with our messy, human selves,
would not be good for business.”
~ Matt Haig
“Reasons To Stay Alive”
“If life were predictable
it would cease to be life,
and be without flavor.”
“Each generation doubtless feels
called upon to reform the world.
Mine knows that it will not reform it,
but its task is perhaps even greater.
It consists in preventing the world
from destroying itself.”
~ Albert Camus
“My future starts when I wake up every morning.
Every day I find something creative to do with my life.”
~ Miles Davis
I am pieces of all the places I have been,
and the people I have loved.
I’ve been stitched together by song lyrics,
book quotes, adventure,
late night conversations, moonlight,
& the smell of coffee.
~ Brooke Hampton
“The only way that we can live is if we grow.
The only way we can grow is if we change.
The only way we can change is if we learn.
The only way we can learn is if we are exposed.
And the only way that we are exposed
is if we throw ourselves into the open.”
