Love is when you keep coming back in each others arms despite the fights, despite the arguments, despite the mood swings and despite all the mess in your life…. Just because you are mentally, soulfully and spiritually compatible.
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them.
Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.
Realize that now, in this moment of time, you are creating. You are creating your next moment based on what you are feeling and thinking. That is what’s real.
Only through love can we obtain communion with God.
Mistakes make you wiser, heartbreak makes you stronger, and wrong turns often take you to the right place. It all serves a purpose.
Love yourself, respect yourself. Never sell yourself short. Believe in yourself regardless of what other people think. You can accomplish anything, absolutely anything, if you set your mind to it.
