potential

They say Icarus was a fool for flying too close to the sun. I say it’s only because of him we know how close we can get. I love the fall of those brave enough to fail for the right reasons.

Fuck the easy glory of mere excellence. The only legacy I will accept is to know that however far I got — it was as far as I was capable of going. I want to drown in my own sweat knowing there was nothing left.

FUN FACT: Humans have explored less than 5% of the ocean… 

How much of you is left to explore?

Your body is a land of beauty, potentials, havoc, catastrophes, surprises, and all that’s in between. Take care of it, nurture and caress it with a tender hand and sound mind. Close your eyes and adore your body without looking at its perfection as well as imperfections. Value the way your wounds hurt, blood clots, and scars lighten. Remind yourself of how wonderful you looked like the moment you put your first smile on your face. Cherish every burst of laughter you have to offer and every drop of tear you have to show. Appreciate how your body fought with colds, fever, headache, even cancer. Because in this world, the first person to genuinely love you for whom you are is yourself.
