If you’re falling apart right now, that’s okay. Sometimes you need to fall apart. You’re doing fine.

It’s not stupid. I promise. It’s not stupid to turn into your 5 year old self and get happy beyond measure for the little things. It’s not stupid to be proud of yourself for completing a load of laundry and washing the dishes. You aren’t lame for patting yourself on the back when you chose a salad over a burger. You’re taking care of yourself and each victory - no matter how small - is worth celebrating.

“Winter’s coming up, so get a fat girl to keep you warm at night!”

Go get yourself a sweater, cuz I’m busy. #RealTalk #SweaterWeather #CuddleWithYerOwnSelf

I know it’s hard for you to talk to anyone right now, but how much do I wish I could tell you this: love isn’t everything. You don’t always have to live on the feeling of being in love. You are not a half of a whole seeking for your perfect other half; you are whole. You could be capable of creating masterpieces if you tried to reach for the sky. So please don’t get stuck in your hopeless circle, waiting for love - you are so much more than that person you said you are.

“You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t find yourself in. You’re allowed to leave any story you don’t love yourself in.

You’re allowed to leave a city that has dimmed your light instead of making you shine brighter, you’re allowed to pack all your bags and start over somewhere else and you’re allowed to redefine the meaning of your life.

You’re allowed to quit the job you hate even if the world tells you not to and you’re allowed to search for something that makes you look forward to tomorrow and to the rest of your life.

You’re allowed to leave someone you love if they’re treating you poorly, you’re allowed to put yourself first if you’re settling and you’re allowed to walk away when you’ve tried over and over again but nothing has changed.

You’re allowed to let toxic friends go, you’re allowed to surround yourself with love, and people who encourage and nurture you. You’re allowed to pick the kind of energy you need in your life.

You’re allowed to forgive yourself for your biggest and smallest mistakes and you’re allowed to be kind to yourself, you’re allowed to look in the mirror and actually like the person you see.

You’re allowed to set yourself free from your own expectations.”

- Rainia Nam (Huffington Post)

Stop beating yourself up. You’re a work in progress, which means you get there a little bit at a time not all at once.

Please, love your body. It does so much for you – it carries you from place to place, it lets you make your thoughts into actions, it lets you laugh and dance and hug and have fun. Give your body the right food, drink plenty of water, exercise, but if your body tells you it needs a break, give it one. And please, don’t hate your body for the way it looks – it allows you to do so much, please give it nothing but gratitude, as its beauty warrants.

There are times when life will be at its toughest, but those days will be overshadowed by the brightness of future days to come! XD
