You Start Dying Slowly

You start dying slowly

“You start dying slowly
if you do not travel,
if you do not read,
If you do not listen to the sounds of life,
If you do not appreciate yourself.

You start dying slowly
When you kill your self-esteem;
When you do not let others help you.

You start dying slowly
If you become a slave of your habits,
Walking every day on the same paths…
If you do not change your routine,
If you do not wear different colours
Or you do not speak to those you don’t know.

You start dying slowly
If you avoid to feel passion
And their turbulent emotions;
Those which make your eyes glisten
And your heart beat fast.

You start dying slowly
If you do not change your life when you are not satisfied with your job, or with your love,
If you do not risk what is safe for the uncertain,
If you do not go after a dream,
If you do not allow yourself,
At least once in your lifetime,
To run away from sensible advice.”

― Pablo Neruda

Men Who Will Sit And Listen To You

Men Who Will Sit And Listen To You

For any woman that needs to hear this.

There are still men who will sit and listen to you while you talk about something that bothered you. There are still men out there who will take accountability and apologize, men who can be aware of their behavior and how it affected you.

Men that you can grow with. Men that will make you feel appreciated. You don’t have to go through years with somebody who doesn’t know how to communicate and has no emotional intelligence.

You are worthy of healthy love.

Get Up

Get Up

Get up.

You’ve got people to prove wrong, people to piss off, and most importantly, a promise to uphold to yourself that this is not the end.

We Need To Step Out Of Our Comfort Zone

We Need To Step Out Of Our Comfort Zone

We need to step out of our comfort zone to grow and learn.

Aaaaaand we need to step back into our comfort zone to rest, recover, and integrate how we’ve grown and what we’ve learned.

Don’t diss the comfort zone. It serves a purpose. Use it as a tool.

Time Is Simply Space

Time Is Simply Space

If time actually healed people, no one in the world would be hurting.

Time is simply space; what matters is how you use it. If you fill your time intentionally with self-love, letting go, and building the new habits you need, that would make a real difference.

Unawakened People Tend To Seek Out Relationships As A Distraction

Unawakened People Tend To Seek Out Relationships

Unawakened people tend to seek out relationships as a ‘distraction’ in order to avoid facing their own inner healing, personal growth, and spiritual awakening. Most of us are in love with the distraction, not the other person.It is time for us to reach a new level of awareness.
