Your fear and sadness will come and go as the waves on the ocean πŸŒŠ

The fear you feel blocks you from enjoying life in ways that call you. But that is ok. When you go through difficult times and fear, worry, anxiety and sadness fill your mind chronically, it is like you press pause on your life. Sometimes it is very necessary to give yourself this pause, to give yourself some time to make peace with what happened. Once you have made peace with it, it will be easier to let go of your fear a little.

However, it is natural if fear and sadness comes and goes for quite a while, look at it like waves on the ocean: on days where you feel your worst you are in the middle of a big wave of emotions – but every wave will peeter out. Breathe through it and let yourself heal. πŸ™

A true friend by your side is just a bonus – you can do this on your own πŸ™

Lots of people want to ride with you in the limo, but what you want is someone who will take the bus with you when the limo breaks down.”

Oprah Winfrey

Difficult times let you know who your real friends are. This is actually a beautiful part of the dark times you are going through. It is time for you to stop caring so much about people who don’t really care about you – just let them go and look towards where you are going instead. πŸ™

True friends do not leave your side when you are hurting. True friends wipe your tears away and hold nothing but love in their heart for you when you have shattered into a million pieces. If you are blessed to have just one true friend in your life, you are indeed very lucky. However, the one best friend in your life that will always be there for you – no matter what – has to be YOU. Your own love, support and approval matters more than anything else and is enough to get you through anything. A friend by your side is just a beautiful bonus. πŸ™

Be who you want to be, the right people will come to you – and stay

You don’t need to rescue me, light up my darkness or even love me – I am whole on my own πŸ™

I don’t need anyone to rescue me, I learned to save myself regardless the circumstances.

I don’t need anyone to light up my darkess, I learned to shine my light from within and that light is always with me, no matter how dark it gets.

I don’t even need someone to love me anymore, I learned how to be one who loves. True love is an inside job, and it has to be unconditional.

I don’t need anyone to complete me, I learned that I am whole on my own. If I choose to be with you, I do so because I want to be with you. You are someone I enjoy being with, someone I like a lot and someone who enhances my joy, my passion and my desire that I already feel, on my own.

No matter how hopeless and hard it might seem, you CAN feel better again

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.

– Helen Keller

Ok, so life has been hard on you? Someone hurt you? You lost someone you love? You lost everything that mattered to you? No matter what happened to you or how bad it feels, you can do something about how you feel, and that will make all the difference in what you attract from here on.

Of course it is easier to just feel sorry for yourself, complain and remain in your negative doubt – but that attitude will just keep you stuck in your misery! Improvements come when you let go of your old ways of thinking and you embrace a more hopeful way of thinking, regarding all topics.

What happened has already happened, your negative attitude about it will only prolong your pain. You can feel better, no matter how hopeless and hard it might seem. All it takes is a willingness to feel better and a choice to stop beating yourself up with that negative attitude of yours. The only one you truly hurt with your resentment is yourself, the only life you ruin with your complaining is your own.

A change in your attitude, in the thoughts you choose, about everything, will bring on a change in your emotional state. When you have achieved an improved emotional state – what you attract to yourself will improve as well. 🌹

Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.

Helen Keller

I accept the pain, I make peace with it and I choose to fill my heart, my mind and my body with love once again πŸ™

I will no longer let the pain cloud my vision

I will no longer let my dissatisfaction sadden my heart

I will no longer let my raging insecurity roam free

I choose to accept where I have been, what has happened and where I am right now. I accept it and I make peace with it.

I choose to let kindness, hope and trust sooth me and I choose to fill my heart, my mind and my body with love once again.

Can you forgive the one who hurt you?


Forgiving someone is an inside job. The one who hurt you might not even be sorry for what he did – he might even have a desire to hurt you again, but you can choose to forgive him unconditionally.

Why would you forgive him? Because, holding on to the resentment by not forgiving him will do you more damage then letting it go. Forgive him because you know everyone has goodness within them. Forgive him because it will bring you relief. Forgive him because you want to grow from this and become happy again.

So yes, you can forgive him. And no, it does not mean you have to see him again or like him – the forgiving part is for you, a step towards making peace with what ever happened and move on.

Make peace with it and set yourself free

No matter what he did to you, no matter how much he hurt you – hating him for what he did to you will only intensify your own suffering.

Once you begin to find it in your heart to forgive him – even though he is not even sorry for what he did – you have begun to let go of the pain.

You don’t need to understand why he hurt you, you don’t need his apology. YOU can choose to forgive him unconditionally, YOU can choose to make peace with it and YOU can choose to move on.

He temporarily dimmed your light, but your light burns from within – choose to love yourself through this and soon you will feel your light burn stronger than ever before. One small step at a time. Even after a long, cold winter the beautiful spring flowers still choose to bloom again.
