We spend precious hours fearing the inevitable. It would be wise to use that time adoring our families, cherishing our friends and living our lives. — Maya Angelou (via purplebuddhaproject)
Don’t let your emotions turn pebbles into mountains. Take a step back, reflect, and simply step over life’s complications. Unless, you want to climb, hike, and wear your soul out. — Awakened Vibrations (via awakenedvibrations)
Life’s picture is constantly undergoing change. The spirit beholds a new world every moment. — Rumi (via shaktilover)
“She speaks more languages than anyone in the family. Because she plays with all the children in the street.” (Erbil, Iraq)
A child’s world is fresh and new and beautiful, full of wonder and excitement. It is our misfortune that for most of us that clear-eyed vision, that true instinct for what is beautiful and awe-inspiring, is dimmed and even lost before we reach adulthood.
~ Rachel Carson
Your job isn’t to go around trying to save people, or to drag them kicking and screaming with high hopes that in the end they will thank you… all you can do is live a healthy life yourself, trusting that those with eyes to see will pay attention and save themselves. Your life is your message, so LIVE your message. Actions are way louder than words. — Buddhist Boot Camp (via abiding-in-peace)
During the time of the darkest night, act as if the morning has already come. — The Talmud

If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it. — Marcus Aurelius (via thecalminside)
In the midst of happiness or despair
in sorrow or in joy
in pleasure or in pain:
Do what is right and you will be at peace. — Jess Rothenberg (via observando)
I don’t want to be the one who says life is beautiful. I want to be the one who feels it. — Marty Rubin (via observando)
It is not your role to make others happy; it is your role to keep yourself in balance. When you pay attention to how you feel and practice self-empowering thoughts that align with who-you-really-are, you will offer an example of thriving that will be of tremendous value to those who have the benefit of observing you.
You cannot get poor enough to help poor people thrive or sick enough to help sick people get well. You only ever uplift from your position of strength and clarity and alignment.

“The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future — which, of course, can only be experienced as the Now” 🌷
Do not look for a sanctuary in anyone except your self. — Buddha (via thecalminside)
