Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do πŸ™

I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game-winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”

– Michael Jordan

What if all the mistakes you have made were actually of beautiful value? What if there is benefit in all the pain and all the hurtful experiences? What if all these awful things you have been through can be your solid foundation on which you stand firmly while you rebuild your strenght? What if the bad things he did to you, can actually inspire you to NOW become stronger and happier?

Everything is of value. Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do. πŸ™


I will hold your hand through the darkness

Come to me, I will hold your hand through the darkness. I know there will be stars to light up your path.

You don’t have to dry your tears or hide your pain. Come as you are, feel as you feel. Even in you weakest of moments your heart and soul radiate love, kindness and an ever increasing strenght. I can see through all the pain, all the hurt and all shattered dreams and what I see is beautiful. 🌹

No matter how hopeless and hard it might seem – you can feel better again and you can enjoy all those things your heart, mind and soul secretly desire

Because of your dissatisfaction, your passionate desire for more is so intense

Because of your sadness, your longing for comfort, joy and lust burns brighter

Because of the mistakes, your future shines brighter with all things you desire

No matter what happened, no matter how hopeless and hard it might seem – you can feel better again and you can enjoy all those things your heart, mind and soul secretly desire.

When you feel broken and lost – remember that I love you unconditionally πŸŒΉ

Those who truly matter will love you no matter what you look like, no matter how little money you have and no matter how many mistakes you make. πŸ™

“Bad people” don’t drive you crazy – your perspective does πŸ™

There is no such thing as a” bad kid” – just angry, hurt, tired, scared, confused, impulsive ones expressing their feelings and needs the only way they know how. We owe it to every single one of them to always remember that. ”

– Dr. Jessica Stephens

We are all doing the very best we can, given the circumstances, experiences, beliefs, desires and emotional state we are in. There is no value in condemnation, not even of the most ” bad” or “wrong” people you can think of. Holding on to resentment only wears you down. Letting go, forgiving and moving on in peace – those are valuable steps you can take, no matter the situation. We teach by the clarity of our own example – hate only breeds more hate, unconditional love is the answer.

When it feels so awful you can hardly breathe and you are boiling with anger, resentment and frustration

When you are in a situation that feels so awful you can hardly breathe and you are boiling with anger, resentment and frustration on the inside – how do you break this negative cycle?

The first step is to make peace with your emotions. Say things like: “This is how I feel, and that is ok. What has happened has happened, I am where I am. If I had known better I would have acted differently, but what happened happened and I choose to make peace with it.”

The second step is to acknowledge that the emotional pain you are feeling is not really about the situation itself but a product of your own thoughts and beliefs about the situation. The great part about this is that you can change your thinking about this situation and therfore you can affect how you feel. You cannot change what happened, you cannot go back in time and act differently – but you can change how you view the situation and that will make all the difference!

When you change how you view it, you will not only change how you feel but you will also prepare yourself mentally for the next time these limiting thoughts come up, so there is a valuable and strengthening bonus in this! Next time you end up in a smilar situation you will act differently because you have changed your thoughts regarding this topic.

Your failure and your mistakes can be the best things that ever happened to you πŸŒ±

Think like a queen. A queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness

Oprah Winfrey

What an awesome way to look at it. No matter what happens to you, everything has the potential of building your strenght and inspire you to grow and blossom into more of what you desire.

Thanks to all failure, all mistakes, all unwanted experiences and shattered dreams – you can become stronger, happier, more confident and more satisfied with your life – NOW – than if you had not gone through all of these things.

It is easy to feel good when your life is wonderful, but true strenght, true empowerment and true freedom is found when you face challenges and choose to let them be your steppingstone to greatness. 🌱

Through all the muddy waters, beauty will emerge

All negative experiences, all pain, all mistakes and all shattered dreams can be the perfect, solid, nourishing foundation to grow from.

Strenght is not given, it is built. And you build it one small moment at a time. Be kind to yourself, you are doing so much better than you think. No matter how muddy the water might be, the lotus flower can still emerge beautifully radiant.

Shake loose from their judging gaze and set yourself free πŸŒΌ

Let them stare, let them wonder. Let them gossip, let them judge.

When you find it in your heart to forgive them unconditionally, you set yourself free.

You don’t need their approval, you don’t need their validation. Nor do you need their love. Let them be, shake loose from their judging eyes and focus on being there for yourself, supporting yourself and loving yourself unconditionally.

Let them make their own mistakes -let them learn and grow in their own pace

When you judge and condemn others, you have pain within yourself – forgive yourself. Make peace with your mistakes and set yourself free.

Choose to give others the freedom to choose for themselves, the freedom to make their own mistakes, to learn and to grow in their own pace. There is no rush. There is always time. Relax.
