“I know better than to not trust God. But sometimes, I forget that. When we are in the midst of an experience, it is easy to forget that there is a Plan. Sometimes, all we can see is today. If we were to watch only two minutes of the middle of a television program, it would make little sense. It would be a disconnected event. If we were to watch a weaver sewing a tapestry for only a few moments, and focused on only a small piece of the work, it would not look beautiful. It would look like a few peculiar threads randomly placed. How often we use that same, limited perspective to look at our life—especially when we are going through a difficult time. We can learn to have perspective when we are going through those confusing, difficult learning times. When we are being pelleted by events that make us feel, think, and question, we are in the midst of learning something important. We can trust that something valuable is being worked out in us—even when things are difficult, even when we cannot get our bearings. Insight and clarity do not come until we have mastered our lesson. Faith is like a muscle. It must be exercised to grow strong. Repeated experiences of having to trust what we can’t see and repeated experiences of learning to trust that things will work out are what make our faith muscles grow strong. Today, I will trust that the events in my life are not random. My experiences are not a mistake. The Universe, my Higher Power, and life are not picking on me. I am going through what I need to go through to learn something valuable, something that will prepare me for the joy and love I am seeking.”
“…that makes your heart beat faster and your eyes glow when you do it or talk about it, no matter if its camping, yoga, gardening, painting, sex, meditation, photography, going for walks, helping others – do that. Do it as often as you can. Because that’s what life’s about. Creating as many passionate, happy, moments as possible. Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the things you love – not even yourself.”

A small smile came over her face.
A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…

“Learn to love, without condition. Talk, without bad intention. Give, without any reason. And most of all, care for people without any expectation.” – Unknown
“…I wrote about what it means to support someone unconditionally, even when they haven’t been entirely honest with you, and how everybody needs somebody to be inspired by; somebody who sets the bar really high; somebody who will put somebody else’s needs before their own and not resent them for it; somebody who always expects you to do the right thing, and then forgives you when you don’t.” – Spencer Hastings, Pretty Little Liars
“She’s the places that she has a desire to visit. She’s the pieces of quotes that are splattered in ink in her favourite books. She’s the road trips that she hopes to go on. She’s the beautiful characters that mesmerised her in her favourite books. She’s full of dreams, and I hope they one day come true.” – Alexa Evangelista
“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.” – Anaïs Nin
“I know you’re sad, so I won’t tell you to ‘have a good day’. Instead, I advise you to simply ‘have a day’. Stay alive, feed yourself well, wear comfortable clothes, and don’t give up on yourself just yet. It’ll be better soon. Until then, have a day.”
