“Instead of resisting or fearing your thoughts, simply be aware. Allow them to be, but don’t attach to them. You have a body that feels and a brain that thinks. They are a part of you, but they are not you. In silence, you become aware that you have the freedom and power to choose the types of thoughts you wish to entertain and empower and the thoughts you wish to ignore and diffuse.” ~Patsie Smith
Tired of feeling controlled by the loud chatter in your mind? Free yourself from painful thoughts by practicing stillness and silence.

"Stop worrying about how to get there, or if ‘there’ is even a good idea. Human beings are wired for safety. This is why we want our trajectory mapped out. An illusion for sure. To get to where we really want to go, there is no pre-drawn map. The good news is that we don't need one! All we need is the next step. And we always know this." ~Lisa Esile

Actually, my last option in this entire fiasco of dating was to simply be single, since it is less stressful and you can wander space and time without having to look at the clock.

"Being hurt is a byproduct of being human. I very much doubt that there is anyone who has passed through the world without experiencing pain. The smartest are those who take the lessons with them so they don’t make the same mistake twice, and the strongest are the ones who learn and keep living with an open heart. The most admirable people are able to do both." ~M. J. Ross
It takes strength to be open, genuine, and vulnerable in relationships, especially after being hurt, but it's worth it. Here's why.

#1: “Don’t take anything personally. If someone says something mean to you, it is because they are hurting inside and don’t know how to ask for love. Now, if a person is being mean, I listen to them, look at them with compassion, and choose not to retaliate. This typically helps defuse that person’s pain.” ~Adam Fulmore
Letting go of stress, negativity, and pain excites me because it allows me to focus on love and the things I do want in my life. The same is true for you.

That's true, but it seems ppl choose to have cruel intentions. What happens when they remain the same?

“Take a step back and look at your life with gratitude every now and then. Be amazed. Squeeze every last ounce of goodness out of what is around you. Savor it. Soak it up. Luxuriate in it. Be amazed. When you’re burned out, bone weary, and bedraggled, use amazement to fill yourself back up. Seek out those situations, people, and activities that remind you of what it means and how it feels to be amazed. And those painful parts? You know, the ones that really, really hurt. The ones you barely survive. Maybe there’s a little room for amazement there, too. Amazement when you make it to the other side. Amazement for how much the heart can hold. Amazement for your resilience, your ability to heal, and your capacity to keep loving and hoping. Be amazed by your spirit. Your tenacity. Be amazed by that part of you that refuses to give up.” ~Leslie Ralph
Want to live in the moment and appreciate life? Be amazed. Be amazed by the beauty around you and maybe even be amazed by your own strength and resilience.

“Once I took my focus off finding the right person, I started to find myself. I could sit for hours on my back porch reading a novel. I would buy myself chocolates and flowers for Valentine’s Day. Once I was providing for all of my own needs, I started to smile again. This wasn’t a race—it was my life. I intended to enjoy every moment of it, with or without someone by my side.” ~Melissa McCaughan
If you’re looking for love and feeling like time's running out, slow down. breathe, and stop trying so hard. Love comes to those at peace with who they are.

“I used to believe everything I thought. For a while, my thoughts told me that I was fat and ugly. Believing them destroyed my confidence. Then, my thoughts told me I needed drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes. Believing them destroyed my body. One day, my thoughts told me to kill myself. Believing them was almost the last thing I ever did. As human beings, we have this amazing capacity to conceptualize, analyze, and create stories in our heads. That capacity can be used to build spaceships and save the world. That same capacity can be used to harm ourselves and others. It’s not that I don’t think toxic thoughts anymore. Sometimes, I still get anxious, fearful, and insecure thoughts just like anyone else. The difference is that I constantly observe and question what I think. I make choices about what I believe is true. And that makes all the difference.” ~Vironika Tugaleva
Self-awareness saved my life and it could do the same for you. Here are five lessons I learned from years of healing my mind and reconnecting with myself.
