improvement quotes

You can eat all the veggies you want and work out as hard as you ever have, but if your mind isn’t healthy then you’ll never feel right. 

Plant your own garden and decorate your own soul, instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
—  Veronica A. Shoffstall
my condolences to anyone who’s ever lost me
and to anyone who got lost in me
or to anyone who ever felt they took a loss with me.
my apologies.
for the misunderstanding or the lack thereof.
i’m sorry you missed the God in me.
and i’m sorry you missed the light.
i’m sorry you forgot the way i arose like the moon,
night after night.
with the burden to forgive
eager to feed you everything.
see.. i’m a holy woman.
i know what it’s like to give life to a being
without ever needing to press skin against one another.
i’ve practiced how to hold my tongue long enough,
i’m afraid i forgot to say goodbye.
i’m afraid you’re under the impression that i was made to please you.
i was under the impression, you understood me better.
the truth is,
i’m a super woman.
and somedays i’m an angry woman.
and somedays i’m a crazy woman.
for still waiting..
for still loving harder even if i’m aching.
for still trusting that I’m still worth the most.
for still searching
for someone to understand me better.

Be mindful of the way you speak to yourself. You can lift yourself up or bring yourself down just as much as anyone else can.
i’m no longer in a place where i seek validation or confirmation, that i’m worthy, from someone else. i’ve learned to do that myself.

At the end of each day, you are a different person. You are stronger, wiser, and more knowledgable. We are constantly growing and evolving with each experience we encounter, and in the end, that shapes us into who we are.
