maybe your life isn’t unraveling, maybe it’s not the end of the world, maybe it is simply the universe challenging you to let go of who you think you’re supposed to be in order to embrace who you are. — maybe it’s supposed to hurt so you’re fully awake for what’s to come. —- && maybe you’re confused and there seems like no answer because there’s not besides it’s what’s supposed to be and that’s the best reason of them all, so take a deep breath and fall into who you are. that’s the most beautiful. — ** #YouMakeYou **
one day it just clicks. you realize what’s important and what isn’t. you learn to differentiate between what’s meant to be temporary and what’s meant to be forever. you learn to care less about what others think of you & you begin to think about yourself. you realize how fucking far you’ve come. and you remember when you thought things were such a mess that you would never recover. — and you smile. — you smile because you know the fire thrown at you simply fueled your light. you smile because you realize the pain you felt was your body and mind being built, and you can’t build without a hammer and some nails. you smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become. — ** #YouMakeYou **
i believe in a lot of things, certain people, certain things, certain ideas, but do you know what i believe in more than anything? myself & the ability to believe myself when it feels a certain way even AGAINST everything else i believe. — why? because i have learned that every single thing you can believe in has the ability to disappear .... except for: yourself. — when all else fails, you WILL have yourself. you will always have yourself. so trust yourself love yourself don’t throw that never ending power away. it’s not worth it. __ you are too damn good to waste. ** #YouMakeYou ** #NewHeadShotWhoDis?
the truth is, we are more often frightened than hurt & we more often suffer from imagination than reality. we let our minds consume us & we forget that we are the ones at the control center. — we fall victim to a false reality because our minds do such a good job of constructing imaginations as reality almost behind our backs. — the mind is one of the most powerful things in the world, & you can choose to control it instead of giving it the power to control you. — stop being frightened by what might happen and instead jump forward and do it, you might get hurt, but baby, you might also soar. — stop suffering from imagination and instead manifest your thoughts and dreams, reality is you may suffer a bit like you imagined, but baby, there is also a chance you feel something so amazing that you’ve never felt before. — ** #YouMakeYou **

never live two days the same this is something I started striving for a few months back and has changed my life. with the world we live in, it is so so so easy to get stuck in the same day in, day out patterns without even realizing it. we think we are happy, and we think we are making progress. most importantly, we feel comfortable so we think everything is going well. — * but, in reality : if we aren’t changing, even the smallest thing a day, we aren’t progressing. if we aren’t stepping outside of what we know, we aren’t learning. and, if we aren’t releasing ourselves from the walls that hold us up, we don’t become strong. * — so here’s my challenge to you : never live the same day twice, even if it means changing 5 minutes of your day as simple as doing a crossword instead of watching netflix, or walking to work/class instead of taking the bus, or even taking a new route to wherever you go daily, do it. fight for that change, fight for that development. — happpppy freaking monday, fam! comment below, **one** thing you are going to switch from your normal routine today!! ** #YouMakeYou **
