Being sensitive or emotional or intense is NOT a weakness. Expressing your feelings is a strength. Loving deeply is a virtue.


In dwelling, live close to the ground.

In thinking, keep to the simple.

In conflict, be fair and generous.

In governing, don’t try to control.

In work, do what you enjoy.

In family life, be completely present.


Lao Tzu (via thecalminside)

"If you allow people to make more withdrawals than deposits, you will soon be in the negative. Know when to close the account, and walk away."

"I spent so much time feeling alone that I forgot to enjoy all the important things."

Anonymous, When the Snow Falls (via snowfallstogether)

"Don’t let someone who gave up on their dreams talk you out of yours."

"If we could look into each other’s hearts and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other more gently, with more love, tolerance and care."
