pursuit of happiness quotes

Friendly reminder to check you’re not holding tension in your body. Let your shoulders drop, unclench your hands and jaw. Take a deep breath. Much better.
Forgive them.
Not because they asked for your forgiveness.
Or because they deserve it.
Or because the pain they caused you
is not worth it.
But because you cannot truly move on
without forgiving.
It shows your level of maturity
and you ability to understand
that life is not always fair.
And that someone’s behavior
speaks of them,
not you.
Your forgiveness speaks of you,
not them.
—  Najwa Zebian
To the heart in you, don’t be afraid to feel. To the sun in you, don’t be afraid to shine. To the love in you, don’t be afraid to heal. To the ocean in you, don’t be afraid to rage. To the silence in you, don’t be afraid to break.
—  Najwa Zebian, Mind Platter
sooner or later you are going to find that place you have been looking for and it will pour there and you will run beneath the rain and stretch your arms there. you will welcome the storm and you will feel all the things that stir inside you. you will be happy there, you will be free and you will find inspiration to love again.
