“Not knowing what is next often indicates you’re embarking upon a more authentic path — no longer unconsciously going through the motions, you are now deciding who you want to be, and choosing where you want to go.
The willingness to stop holding onto what is safe if it’s not also right indicates that you have started to uncover your own self-security within.
The choice to prioritize how you feel over what other people think means that you are learning to value your own opinions, your own mental health, your own intuition — that you are finally learning to take care of yourself as much as you take care of all those around you.
What sometimes looks on the outside as a setback, quieting or loss is only a failure to the ego.
The world will tell you that the longevity of a relationship is equivalent to the success of it, while the heart will tell you when your time together is complete.
The world will tell you that a particular type of profession is equivalent to certain success, while the heart will tell you what you’re really meant to do, where you’re actually meant to be investing your time and life.
The world will tell you that steadiness is the equivalent to strength, but the heart will tell you that it is the courage to feel, to process, to no longer hide or deny or run — is most indicative of character.
Breakdowns contain within them the potential of our breakthroughs. In the same way a star must first implode before it goes supernova, we, too, often experience the absolute greatest growth when our paths and projections forward are disrupted and we are left with nothing but a blank slate upon which to build a new life.
It is only within those unknowns that we are finally able to find our own truths.What we consider to be the ends are very often the beginnings.
What we consider to be the lows are very often the opportunities for our greatest pivots, and change.
What we consider to be our losses very often turn into our greatest and most profound gains.”
