"Just like other situations in my life from the past, I was holding on to a lot of things just because they were what I knew and felt comfortable being around - just in case. I was overwhelmed with the idea of going through them all, analyzing their uses and facing the idea of parting with them. But if I held on to these items I wouldn't have space for new, beautiful things to come in; there were so many objects from the past I was holding on to, physical things this time, that had absolutely no place in my life now."
"It's not selfish, and it's not cruel. If you've tried for years to help someone, set healthy boundaries, and they still continue to ignore or mistreat you because of their own unresolved issues and refuse to acknowledge it and continue to hurt you? You must allow them burn their own bridge, and let them go.”
"I never knew of the unspoken, underlying bond I would feel with the other mothers I came in contact with. The relationships I have developed started as complete strangers, and now we have now become our own tribe. I celebrate their achievements in my mind, experience their struggles in my heart, and feel their sorrows in my soul."
"Modesty isn't about covering up our bodies because they're bad; modesty isn't about hiding ourselves...it's about revealing our dignity."
"In case you need to hear these words today: It's ok if you aren't where you want to be quite yet - because nothing worth having comes easy, or is built overnight. In life, whether it be your career, education, a relationship; building a house or building a family, losing weight/getting healthy, raising your children etc. there will be highs and lows, mountains and valleys, in the journey to get to your destination. How much more do you appreciate the hill you're proudly standing on if you've sat in the valley below, staring up and dreaming of being up there, after all the hard work of the climb?"
"Instead of being presented with stereotypes by age, sex, color, class, or religion, children must have the opportunity to learn that within each range, some people are loathsome and some are delightful."
“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.”
