"The term courage as it first appears in the English language, is from the Latin ‘cor’, or ‘heart’, and it means to tell a story of who you are with your whole heart."

— Brene Brown (via h-o-r-n-g-r-y)

"If you obsess over whether you are making the right decision, you are basically assuming that the universe will reward you for one thing and punish you for another. The Universe has no fixed agenda. Once you make any decision, it works around that decision. There is not right or wrong."

~ Deepak Chopra (via conflictingheart)

"All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another."

Anatole France (via fourteendrawings)

Quote
"Instead of saying “I don’t have time” try saying “it’s not a priority,” and see how that feels. Often, that’s a perfectly adequate explanation. I have time to iron my sheets, I just don’t want to. But other things are harder. Try it: “I’m not going to edit your résumé, sweetie, because it’s not a priority.” “I don’t go to the doctor because my health is not a priority.” If these phrases don’t sit well, that’s the point. Changing our language reminds us that time is a choice. If we don’t like how we’re spending an hour, we can choose differently."

"For a seed to achieve its greatest expression, it must come completely undone. The shell cracks, its insides come out and everything changes. To someone who doesn’t understand growth it would look like complete destruction."

Quote
"Take a chance. Walk to a different coffee shop. Spend a Sunday getting lost in a nearby town. Make a conscious choice to try something different. Maybe nothing will happen, but oh, think of all that could."

"All it takes is a small, simple shift in perception and you will start a tidal wave of change in your life. You will begin to re-wire your mind, transform your body and re-connect with your soul. You can make the shift from seeing what is wrong about something, to seeing what is right. You can shift from focusing on what you don’t have, to what you do. You can shift from the energy of fear, into a space of love. The minute you change your focus and energy, the whole world around you also shifts to reflect that."

— Connie Chapman (via liquid-diamonds-flowing)

"She understood that the hardest times in life to go through were when you were transitioning from one version of yourself to another."

My idea of the perfect exercise class is this: The teacher gives us all a hug and goes, “You did it! You showed up! Let’s lie down.” We all lie down and she’s like, “How is everybody feeling?” We’re like, “Great!” And the teacher’s like, “Great!” Then we all get to leave 20 minutes early. - Amy Poehler
