Quotes for the Soul: Self Care

I know this “self care” vibe is trendy now but I really like myself. I really enjoy being by myself because self love could never feel lonely. In a perfect world, I’d turn my phone off for days and just zone out. I’ve mastered the sort of inner peace that makes me run away from anything or anyone that disrupts it. So keep following the “self care” trend. I hope you accidentally fall in love with yourself in the process. It’s truly a gift.

Eat like you love yourself. Move like you love yourself. Speak like you love yourself. Act like your love yourself. Love yourself.” — Tara Stiles

Quotes For The Soul: Traumas

I once had someone tell me
that he couldn’t be with me
because of my past traumas.
Not because I hadn’t processed them
but because I had and chosen to forgive.
He couldn’t bring himself to do the same.
Before then, I had never thought about
the people who’d love me later in life.
That they too would have to process and
forgive the same people who hurt me
before they even knew or loved me.

We don’t have to do all of it alone. We were never meant to.” -Brené Brown

Quotes for the Soul: Changes

That thing you keep fighting against isn’t “them”. Its your spirit telling you it’s time to operate differently. But like the humans we are, our natural reaction is to fight against it. Enter that other zone! Step away from all you’ve known and take hold of the discomfort needed to level up in all aspects, it’s time! No more excuses. Just do it.

Change will not come if we wait for some other person or some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek.” –Barack Obama
