When you love yourself, you teach those around you how to love themselves. That love will change the world into what it was intended to be.
When I put down Lance Armstrong’s book, I understood something profoundly. Edie, if you can move, you’re not sick. I decided right then and there that no matter what cancer did to me I would continue to move. Movement was what the physical body was designed to do; it was how it coped and functioned. Movement was vitality. It was life.
I would move. Always. No matter what. Until my last breath, I would move.
I just want your voice aimed at me again. I want to absorb the direction of your eyes…
As change is a constant – as our houses, our money, our friends, our things and even our lovers can always disappear – the one thing that we will always remain the closest to, will be our minds and our bodies.
You are a great soul.
i sometimes think i’m too in love with alone.
who could i love more than this peace?
don’t be like so many writers,
don’t be like so many thousands of
people who call themselves writers,
don’t be dull and boring and
pretentious, don’t be consumed with self-
the libraries of the world have
yawned themselves to
over your kind.
don’t add to that.
don’t do it.
It doesn’t matter what others think. This is about YOU. Create a life that you genuinely love with your whole heart & start with yourself.
To hate the hate was just more hate; to reject the rejection was just more rejection; to judge the judging, just more judging.
We’re hungry for acceptance-from ourselves even more than from others-for love, for fulfillment, for peace. We’re hungry for a life we think we don’t deserve or can’t have, for the person we know we can be if only we’d give ourselves the chance.
