“The Dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins - but in the heart of its strength lies weakness; one lone candle is enough to hold it back. Love is more than a candle. Love can ignite the stars.”
i. things truly do happen for a reason and they coincide with the things that don’t go the way you had planned.
ii. you can’t make someone feel a certain way. you have to accept how they feel and move on one way or another.
iii. don’t let your emotions control you, but don’t ignore them either. you might miss out on something, or someone, wonderful.
iv. you meet certain people for a reason. they may walk into your life to make it better or cause chaos but they will always teach you a lesson. they don’t always stay and that is okay.
v. live in the moment. be present. notice the small things like the sound of a passing car, the ticking of a watch, the singing of the cicadas.
vi. be good and do good. don’t expect anything in return.
vii. everything will be okay. even if it’s not right now.
viii. breathe. your mental health is just as important as your physical health. don’t let any part of you suffer for any reason and if you need to take some time for yourself, do it. it’s okay to put yourself first.
