“The same is true for you. It isn’t necessary to know exactly how your ideal life will look; you only have to know what feels better and what feels worse.” –Martha Beck
This is exactly how I’ve been operating as of late. Life in all aspects should be so simple yet we as humans tend to complicate things unnecessarily. Don’t like something? Don’t do it. Don’t like someone? Don’t deal with them. That simple. I’ve been so much happier and more at peace since beginning to truly live my life this way. So I encourage all to find your happy place and don’t allow anyone or anything to compromise it. You and you alone knows what feels good.
Words are so powerful and resonates with me on an indescribable scale. There has been many times when a quote has inspired me to keep going, reminded me of my purpose or simply pleased my soul. So as I run across such quotes I’ll share them here via entries titled, “Quotes for the soul”. My hope is that they too will inspire you.
“The purpose of life is the expansion of happiness. Happiness is the goal of every other goal.” -Deepak Chopra
Arms & legs outstretched
Reaching for the comfort
Only your touch provides.
But you’re not here.
Yet still, like an addict…
My legs still stretch and
My fingers still reach for you
Between my lonely sheets…
