Love happens, hearts break and life ends, or at least that's what it feels like. It gets hard to breath and even harder to carry on, but there is a strength in each one of us that allows us to get back up, to lunge forward and to come out better than we were before. I think deep down we all know it's not the end of the world, but when that knowledge is pushed too deep and the pain is to real, remember these quotes and try to find the strength to be happy.
"The biggest lesson I've learned is, 'it's okay.' It's okay for me to be kind to myself. It's okay to be wrong. It's okay to get mad. It's okay to be flawed. It's okay to be happy. It's okay to move on." - Unknown
6. Be brave and shade every memory yellow
"We draw maps of each other's pasts. Heartbreaks colored in black. Grief outlined in purple. The happiest times shaded yellow. This is how we learn each other. We are so scared and brave. We are so terrified and willing. We rewrite the definition of brave and it is this: love again. love again. love again." - Fortesa Latifi
7. Have the courage to take the challenging path; it will lead to the best places
"Often, what feels like the end of the world is really a challenging pathway to a far better place." - Karen Salmansohn
8. Just be you and love it!
"Be confused, it's where you begin to learn new things. Be broken, it's where you begin to heal. Be frustrated, it's where you start to make more authentic decisions. Be sad, because if we are brave enough we can hear our heart's wisdom through it. Be whatever you are right now. No more hiding. You are worthy. Always." - S.C. Lourie
9. Everyday is a choice
"Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional." - M. Kathleen Casey
10. You can't rush a masterpiece
"Healing is an art. It takes time. It takes practice. It takes love." - Unknown
11. Let the light in
"The wound is the place where the Light enters you." - Jalaluddin Rumi
12. Have an attitude of gratitude to see you through
"The happiest people don't have the best of everything; they make the best of everything." - Unknown
