“Be the Piece of Peace”☮️
Come find me when you’re ready to dive deeper into love. Come find me when you’re done with all your games. Come find me when your need for love is greater than your need for attention. Come find me when you want to have something real. Come find me when you’re looking for quality over quantity. Come find me when you’re done chasing temporary things. Come find me when you’re ready to bare your soul. Come find me when you’re not afraid to be vulnerable. Come find me when you’re not scared of showing me your scars. Come find me when you’re ready to share every little part of your life with someone. Come find me when you’re ready to hand someone your whole heart. Come find me when you’re looking for the truth. Come find me when you need someone to understand your complexities. Come find me when you’re looking for someone to reflect your soul. Come find me when you’re looking for forever not just for right now. Come find me when you’re looking for a home, not a vacation. Come find me when you’re tired of running and you’re finally ready to stay.🌈☀️
You did not lose, you got lucky. You got lucky enough to meet someone who showed you that there were souls within this universe that felt as deeply, and cared as feverishly, as you did. You did not lose, you got lucky. You got lucky enough to spend time with someone who wanted to experience the world through your eyes. Who wanted to watch old movies and listen to rainstorms with you, and feel your eyelashes blink across their neck. You did not lose, you got lucky. You got lucky because you met someone who, for a moment in time, was able to squeeze all of your broken pieces back together. You got lucky. Lucky enough to meet someone who plucked anxiety out of your chest like splinters, who poured calm into the parts of you that no one else clapped for. No, you did not lose — you got lucky. You got lucky because time did not choose to separate you. You got lucky. Lucky enough to have found them, to have experienced them, to have been given the opportunity to love them the way you loved them. And even if you were not loved like this, you are still lucky. See, sometimes people come into our lives and they love us like sunrises — only ever leaving us softer, and kinder to ourselves. But sometimes, sometimes people come into our lives and they love us like hurricanes — making us question if we feel too deeply, if we are simply too much to hold. The hardest lesson you will ever have to learn is that this too is a gift. To have been loved in halves is to have been loved by someone who taught you how to walk away. How to choose yourself for once, how to stand up for your worth. At the end of the day, they may not have loved you, but they did teach you how to survive the wreckage, how to endure the storm, and how to rebuild. They may not have loved you, but you still risked your heart. You still tried for something. And that is what makes you lucky, because that is what has made you strong .🌈
« I think you always know when you need to walk away. It is an itch within your soul, a question that bellows through your bones in the quietest way. The slight ache in your mind, the tiredness that exists in a soul. I think you always know when you need to let go. When you need to lay down your arms and stop fighting. I think you always know, when it isn’t working, when your heart is not being held. But I also think that you equate loving with fighting, even when you know that the war has ended. I think you show up to battle every single day, even when you do not want to, even when everything inside of you is asking you to retreat, is asking you to rest. I think you always know when you need to walk away, you just have to give yourself permission to do so. You just have to give yourself permission to act, to put one foot in front of the other.You just have to understand that this does not mean that you failed, or that you did not give with everything you had inside of you. At the end of the day, I think you always know when you need to walk away. At the end of the day, the question is the answer. »
- It took me a really long time to be able to define what toxic really meant. It took a really long time to strap such a title into certain people without feeling guilty. It took and even longer time to take accountability for my own actions and realize I was to blame for making a toxic choice. It was me relying on him in weak moments that wasn’t so much him helping me but him feeling a sense a worth and power that I needed him that much. He began to fade quickly from my life when I gained that power back. When I realized someone pouncing on my vulnerability and constantly needing validation and me building him up was the cost of tearing myself down. The truth is strong people cannot coexist with toxic ones because the strength of someone in a healthy mindset builds other up. The strength of a toxic person comes in their ability to tear someone down striving for control and making it appear like they genuinely care. Toxic people and strong ones cannot coexist because the motives of each are completely opposite. The truth is when you find that strength within yourself you’ll realize not only do you not need those kinds of people but they have never needed you for who you are but rather how you made them feel about themselves. The truth is when you start to respect yourself what you will realize is they never had mutual respect for you to begin with.
« When you’re the person who is always there for others — you feel a lot. You have depths within you, an ocean for a heart, and you sometimes fall for people who are too afraid to swim. You give and you give and you give. You never know how to stop yourself from pouring into those you love. And so, there are moments where a tender ache sometimes forms within your unhinged chest. There are moments where you are left wondering if someone will ever give you the love you so freely give to others, moments where you wonder if there will ever come a time when someone asks how you are doing, how you are coping, how you are healing. See, sometimes the person who is always there for everyone else, needs someone there for them. Sometimes, the person who smiles the biggest holds the biggest hurt. Sometimes the person who encourages everyone around them needs to be told that they are appreciated, that they matter; sometimes they need to be encouraged, sometimes they need to be held — no matter how strong they seem, no matter how brightly they shine. So, if you’re the person who is always there for others, know that your heart is rare. Know that you hold within you an ability to calm storms in people. Know that you give people hope, that you inspire them by acknowledging the pieces of them most ignore, that you make people feel wanted, that you make people feel like they have purpose. However, also remind yourself that you are not invincible. Your heart needs rest. You need rest. Remind yourself that you do not need to carry the weight of the world on your shoulders, that you may not be able to save everyone, that you may not be able to heal every hurt. Remind yourself that you deserve to take all of the energy you put out into the world and invest it back into yourself from time to time. That you are worthy of the love you keep giving to everyone else. Remind yourself, that you don’t always have to be strong, that you don’t always have to be the fixer. Remind yourself that you can be human, that you can ask for help; that you don’t always have to be the one to save yourself. » 🌈🌸
« I’m slowly learning how to be unavailable, but not the kind of unavailable we read about; playing games, playing hard to get, ignoring people on purpose, acting super busy when I’m not. I outgrew that kind of pretentious unavailability. It’s now coming from a more enlightened place. It’s now a way to protect my soul, energy, and heart from all those who are trying to pollute it. I’m slowly learning how to be unavailable to those who don’t value me. I’ve learned recently that love without appreciation and respect means nothing. That if those who claim to love you are not there for you when you need them, if they don’t stand up for you when you’re helpless, if they don’t show up for you during difficult times or the times when you need them to take a firm stand, then they don’t appreciate you. They like you but they’re also not afraid of losing you. They’re not afraid of disappointing you over and over again. I’m slowly learning that choosing the energy you want to be around and the people who truly make you happy is not rude or selfish; it’s necessary. I’m slowly learning how to be unavailable to dead, vicious cycles; to people who don’t change no matter how many times you forgive them or welcome them back into your life. To those who expect you to understand and carry their baggage with them no matter how heavy it is but can’t handle yours if it’s too heavy. I’m slowly learning how to be unavailable to anything that doesn’t make me feel alive. I’m slowly learning that to protect yourself, you have to choose your environment wisely and if that means being unavailable to certain people, certain energies and certain circumstances, then so be it because I’m slowly learning that my life will never change if I don’t change who I surround myself with and my repeated patterns will never bring different results. I’m slowly learning that being unavailable sometimes brings you closer to what’s meant for you because you’re slowly cleansing and releasing everything that’s not. » 🌈🌸
Would you like to know what the, Rich do that poor people don’t? First, you have to learn that wealth is not about money, but about mindset. A rich-minded individual with only $100 to his/her name is much better off than a poor-minded individual with $1 million to his/her name. #The Rich are voracious readers. Warren Buffett, arguably the world’s greatest investor of all time (worth approximately $80 billion ), was once asked about the key to success, he responded by pointing to a stack of books and answering: “Read 500 pages like this every day. That’s how knowledge works. It builds up, like compound interest. All of you can do it, but I guarantee not many of you will do it.” He is not alone. -Mark Cuban (worth $4.1billion ) dedicates three hours a day to reading. -Bill Gates (worth $102.4 billion ) reads 50 books a year, nearly a book a week. -Elon Musk (worth $19.3 billion ) is an avid reader that claims he learned to build rockets by reading books. If you want to become rich, you need to be reading books about how to become rich, not Googling “easy ways to make money”. #The Rich are relentlessly resourceful. Rich people don’t make excuses. Rich people are relentlessly resourceful, they always figure out a way to succeed and make more money, regardless of their circumstances. When rich people are dealt a bad hand, they don’t blame the dealer, they shut the hell up and still figure out a way to win. #The Rich don’t save, they invest. Albert Einstein famously stated, “Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world.” He was right, no other worldly wonder has the ability to make a poor man rich. #The Rich believe in positive energy and people. Rich people recognize that they are the average of the five people they surround themselves with, so they surround themselves with a rich, successful and powerful bunch. If you didn’t know, now you know! Chao!🌈🌸
Here’s the funny thing about fate, it doesn’t like liars. It exposes them eventually. It sends their malicious karma back to them and it sends little messengers of truth to tell you or show you exactly the truth behind these lies. So trust me when I say that after every deception, the truth will come out. The truth about that person, the truth about their lies and the truth about how much you really meant to them. The people who deceive you are only deceiving themselves because eventually, they won’t be able to run away from the truth. They can’t run away from their demons or their flaws. They won’t be able to wear the deception mask for too long because they forget one very important factor, they forget that people eventually take their blindfolds off, their intuition kicks in, they start seeing the true colors, they sniff the lies and they finally walk away when they’ve had enough. If someone deceived you, it says a lot about them, not you. If anything, you should be happy that you’re no longer associated with someone who can’t be real with themselves or people. You should be happy that you’re no longer in the presence of someone who can’t be genuine or vulnerable or sincere. But every deception is a confirmation from God that this road is not for you, that these people are not for you, that those who deceive you need to heal their own issues before you can truly trust them or love them. Every deception is a confirmation from God that you’re looking for happiness in the wrong place. Deception is God’s way of redirecting you so you can keep finding your truth. Away from those who are still running away from theirs. Away from those who think they’re too clever for deceiving you and maybe even laugh about it with their friends. They gloat over breaking you but they’re only breaking themselves and that’s the saddest truth of all — how broken they really are. Because after every deception, you dodge a bullet and it goes straight back to them. Shattering the glass they used to cut you and it wounds them instead. After every deception, you heal while they remain broken.
« Maybe right now, your journey isn’t about love. Maybe right now, your journey is about being alone. Maybe this is the season you are being challenged — to learn how to wake up in the middle of the bed, to finally find hope in the vacancy, hope in the quiet, hope in the way you stretch into your life and give yourself permission to take up space within it. Maybe right now, you are being shown — that you can take care of yourself, that you can depend on the person you have become, that you can be your own home no matter how life tries to weather you. No, maybe right now your journey isn’t about love. Maybe, right now, your journey is about hope. Maybe this is the season you are being challenged to remind yourself of the beauty life has to offer you. Maybe right now, you are being given the space to discover the kinds of places that leave your bones dripping with feeling, the kinds of songs that are yours and yours alone, the kinds of people who love you in a way that does not seek to change you. Maybe right now, you are being given a chance to reclaim your joy, to make it the most natural extension of who you are, to let it spill out of your words, and your laughter, and your tears — to let it be something you believe you are worthy of, to let it be something you believe you deserve. See maybe right now your journey isn’t about love. Maybe right now your journey is about you. Maybe this is the season you are being challenged to be your own savior, to be your own safe place. Maybe right now you are being reminded — that the people who walked away were only ever leading you back to yourself, were only ever leading you here. And here, you are okay on your own. Here, you are rebuilding. Here, you are adapting, and mending, and reclaiming all of the pieces you let them walk away with. Here, you are being kinder your soul, you are giving yourself the same kind of love you have always given to others. Here, you are not rushing your heart, you are not depending on another human being to fix it. Instead, here, you are doing that on your own. Here, you are healing. »
What does it really mean to think big? If you have something valuable in mind, a service to offer, an idea to develop, or even your own raw talent to use, then you owe it to yourself ! and to others, to increase its scope. Why settle for anything less than the full potential of what you can do with it? - But, thinking big needs: -Vision. To think big, you need to see big. -Courage. Nothing entured, nothing gained. -Thick skin. If what you have in mind is at all worth doing, then others will express doubts about it along the way. The fact is, when you have a strong enough vision, the courage takes care of itself. When you can see, hear, and feel your vision, then you simply have to pursue it, however crazy it might seem to others. - 📸: Somewhere; right.
So, go ahead and do it. Do the one thing that you were told not to ever do. Give up. Fail. Break down. Really, really, fall hard with your face planted onto the concrete. Feel what it is like to truly be sad. Feel all of the hurt that you have brushed aside for too long. Cry the hardest you have since you lost your first love. Really feel what it’s like to see no light at the end of the tunnel. Feel what having no hope is like. You are a human being. You aren’t a robot programmed to always have a smile on your face. You are going to go through shit in your life that will truly test your limits. You are going to go through heartache over and over again. And you are going to fail, just like me, and just like every other single person on this earth. You’re allowed to give up. You get the privilege to do it. You have the stability to do it. Because, giving up, just like anything else, will not be permanent. It’s not going to be forever. The harder you fall, the taller you will stand later in life. When you lose yourself, you’re going to eventually meet a better you. When you experience the kind of grief that you think will never end, you will learn from it and slowly heal. So, go ahead and do what no one else has given you permission to do. Do what you have never allowed yourself to do. Stop faking that smile. Stop faking that laugh. Truly, hit rock bottom. You’ll be surprised by how liberating it will feel to be at the lowest of lows, and to be ok with letting yourself go to that dark place. Allow yourself to feel things you have repressed for so long. Allow yourself to crumble. Give up. And then let yourself rebuild. Give up. And then let yourself heal afterwards. Give up. And watch how high you will rise. Give up. And truly experience what it’s like to lose faith in everything, and then how it feels to get it all back again. Give up. And watch how fast you fly. Watch yourself begin anew. Watch yourself succeed. Watch yourself fall in love with yourself all over again.🌈✨

・・・ The word rejection is not a pleasant one in any way, shape, or form. No matter who you are, what you are trying to accomplish or how successful you are, we all face rejection. But you know what? You should look back and be thankful for those rejections! And here are a few reasons why: ✔️There will always be something better. Whether it is a better relationship, a better business opportunity, or a better coffee order when your barista tells you they are out of your favorite, go-to daily brew. You are forced into opportunity when you are rejected on your initial idea. ✔️Pushes you to think outside the box. It is rejection that helps us re-evaluate and think outside the box we thought we had our perfectly planned life plan in. ✔️You learn. These situations allow you see what you may have done wrong, or could improve on. Maybe you bombed a job interview where you felt the need to talk about how you were fired from your previous job for punching a hole through the wall during a heated conversation. It’s rejection that helps us see opportunities that we can improve on. ✔️Makes you stronger! Rejection sucks, but you should be thankful for the opportunities, resilience, and lessons it nicely laid in your lap. You can overcome anything and rejection is one of the easiest things on the list. - Ps: All it takes is -Decision -Action -Balls. Chao🌈🌟
1:25 am, 13/08/2018✨ I have learned that feeling empty sometimes is okay. You’ve got to refill yourself with something at some point. Art, love, solitude, random acts of kindness. I really don’t know, but that’s what makes being whole again. And, I’m beginning to recognise that real happiness isn’t something large and looming on the horizon ahead but something small, numerous and already here. The smile of someone you love. A decent breakfast. The warm sunset. Your little everyday joys all lined up in a row. Ps: There are stars you haven’t seen and loves you haven’t loved. There’s light you haven’t felt and sunrises yet to dawn. There are dreams you haven’t dreamt and days you haven’t lived and nights you won’t forget and flowers yet to grow. There’s more to you that you have yet to know.-g.c. Chao!🌼🌈
Read🙏🏻🌟 We have become part of a self-sustaining echo chamber critical of people who work hard to realize their dreams. Competitors, naysayers and dream killers, from their safe perches along life’s sidelines, criticise and pull people down instead of joining life’s beautiful, wondrous, often shambolic, dance. Most of those critics have never created or built anything, nor will they ever understand the challenges and the great satisfaction of steering a ship to its destination. Even so, they act as though they’re the experts in the room. Hypocritical to the extreme. But we have to endure this, too. That’s the real world. Let the criticism and public failure strengthen you, not diminish you. In the end, you’re not answerable to anyone but yourself. Ps: Level your gaze beyond the horizon. Life is too short to allow others to make you feel inadequate. Chao!🌈🤙🏻
The tongue performs two functions i.e of taste and speech and the ears, though double in number, perform only one function i.e of hearing only. Too much babbling and prattling undermines one’s personality and may lead to the erosion of something very valuable in life- wisdom, conviction, faith and above all, a balanced approach to Life. Ps: Just Be silent about great things, let them grow inside you. Never discuss them, discussion is so LIMITING & DISTRACTING; it makes things so small.
The man on the top of the mountain didn’t fall there. A simple quote and i’m sure you’ve seen it before around the gram but sadly not many of you get the point. - The price to success is HARD work. We all want to succeed. Whether it’s loosing weight, learning a new skill or start a new business.. For those of us who tried and failed, success seems elusive. Why is it one person succeeds where another fails? First and foremost, I believe it is in their mindsets. And second, I believe that successful people have developed certain habits, either naturally or through research, that the rest of us haven’t stumbled upon yet. Nobody can guarantee your success, only YOU can do that. It starts in your mind and from there your thoughts take a physical form through yoir actions. Believing in yourself is NECESSITY. -Identify your core value. -Pick a goal. -Set a deadline to your success. -BUILD the right mindset. -Prioritise. -Make risks. -And never give up. Get your ass to work because luck doesn’t exist! Ps: Gram should be used more often for sharing life changing experiences, skills which you have or have developed, which could help another human and not the selfies which has no purpose toward your growth. Chao!
They said: Where words fail, Music speaks!!! But perhaps my music doesn’t really talks to me or talks for me;but makes me bang my head real hard and get all the shit out of it.
I am absolutely obsessed with this one! #raisethevolume
Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back. That’s part of what it means to be alive. But inside our heads - at least there’s where i imagine it - there’s a little room, where we store those memories. A room like stacks in the library. And to understand the working of our own heart we have to keep on making new reference cards. We have to dust things off every once in awhile, let in fresh air, change the water in flower vases. In other words, you’ll live forever in your own private library.
