Always be committed to developing your mind. Learn something new every single day. Read things that no one else is reading. Never stop learning new knowledge, for we were given this amazing ability for a reason.
Dance. Sing. Cook. Do what ever it is that makes your heart sing. Step by step, you’ll discover what you’re meant to do in your life, and with that my friend, you will fall completely in love with. You’ll find it, don't worry. All in good time.
Because one day you’re planning your future and everything is perfect. And then the next you’re lying in bed surrounded by tissues and torn up pictures because they don’t love you anymore. Just like that, as if the last two years meant nothing. Except, it meant everything to you and now you don’t know what to do. You’re alone and sad and afraid. Everything you knew has changed. But that’s life. So you be sad and alone and afraid. And then you move on. You take one step and then another. Until eventually you’re better. It won’t happen over night. It might not happen for months. But it will happen, I promise.
—  Just one step.

sometimes the best medicine is just taking a break from the world. finding a little corner of the universe and allowing yourself to sit down and just breathe. to recuperate. because the truth is, life isn’t a straight path. it’s curvy and bumpy and filled with mountains and oceans for you to cross and you can’t keep running on empty and expect yourself to thrive. eventually you will break down and need some road-side assistance and that’s okay! take a break. get some rest. make the call. hold someone’s hand. allow yourself room to heal and to better yourself. the world is yours, you have all the time you need to heal, so take some today.
