The jewels within us

“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.” ~Elizabeth Gilbert

Have you sought out and embraced the jewels buried within yourself? They’re there in all of us, and the world is waiting for us to find them and share them.

You have value

You have value

You are valuable because you exist. Not because of what you do or what you have done, but simply because you are.” ~Max Lucado

This is a reminder that you have value just as you are. It’s nothing you have to earn. You don’t need to be “good enough.” You have value just because you are.

Choosing rest and play

It takes courage to say yes to rest and play in a culture where exhaustion is seen as a status symbol

It takes courage to say yes to rest and play in a culture where exhaustion is seen as a status symbol.~Brené Brown

How often do you choose rest and play? Do you feel guilty when you do so? Allowing yourself time to rest and play is basic self-care that makes you healthier, more productive, and happier. Don’t let our culture’s celebration of exhaustion convince you otherwise!

Don’t wait for perfect

ducks in a row

“If I waited until I had all my ducks in a row, I’d never get across the street. Sometimes you just have to gather up what you’ve got and make a run for it.” ~Judge Lynn Toler⠀

Conditions will likely never be perfect for you to follow your dream, start that new thing, or make the change you’re considering. That’s ok. Do it anyway! You’ll get farther by doing your best with what you’ve got than you will by waiting forever for a mythical perfect before starting.
