“You don’t get to choose whether or not you’re going to be taken to these edges. You will be taken to those edges. The only thing we have to ask ourselves is what we require to make it meaningful.” ~Francis Weller
How do you find meaning in life’s hard times?
“Show me the most damaged part of your soul, and I will show you how it shines like Gold.” ~Nikita Gill
Even the places we feel most broken shine like gold with the tenderness exposed underneath. The gold of healing adds to that even more.

“I admire people who could have turned cold after everything they’ve been through but still chose love anyway. There’s strength in that.” ~Keneilwe D Mhlanga⠀

Kindness is never wasted. What may seem like a drop in the ocean still has the power to change the world for the better.
