Without the darkness you would not appreciate the light as much as you do ๐Ÿ™

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

โ€“ 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. ๐Ÿ™


If we have kindness, love and respect in our hearts, we contribute to the healing ๐Ÿ™

Everyone has a story, many even have a painful past that still haunts them daily. Treat everyone you meet with kindness and respect. You cannot possibly understand why they act as they do because you have not lived through their experiences nor felt their pain.

We all find our own ways of dealing with what we have been through, and if we have kindness, love and respect in our hearts when we interact with others, we contribute to the healing. ๐Ÿ™

Turn your pain into your strenght ๐ŸŒฑ

Take your pain and turn it into something beautiful. Express yourself in ways that call you, create beauty out of your suffering and show the world that there is value and benefit with everything that happens. Turn your pain into your strenght.

Who hurt you so immensely that the joy in your eyes vanished and the love in your heart died?

How come when you smile, there is such pain in your eyes? How come your eyes tell another story than your calm voice?

What was it that made your heart so empty, your body so cold and your mind so dark? Who hurt you so immensely that the joy in your eyes vanished and the love in your heart died?

Find humor in the crazy situation and set yourself free

โ€œMy focus is to forget the pain of life. Forget the pain, mock the pain, reduce it. And laugh.โ€ โ€“ Jim Carrey

This is such a wonderful quote because it takes the edge off the pain. Instead of wallowing in your suffering and feeling sorry for yourself, find humor in this crazy situation and allow yourself to relax a little. Yes, you are allowed to smile and laugh, even in the midst of what you would call a painful situation. In fact, this might even be your way out of the pain. ๐Ÿ™

When things are really bad, the only thing to do is laugh.”

– Jim Carrey

This pain cuts through my heart like a blinding flash of lightning

Let me wallow in my sadness,

Let me get lost in my despair

All this pain that cuts through my heart like a blinding flash of lightning,

All this havoc in my mind like a twirling tornado

And yet faith shines eternally within me and I know that when the raging storm passes, my ocean will be calm again

Be your own superhero ๐Ÿฆธโ€โ™€๏ธ

You have to take care of yourself. If you feel sad and worried, be the one who comforts you. When someone hurts you, be there for yourself and build up your strenght again.

Don’t wait for someone to save you, be your own superhero and value your safety, security and wellbeing first and foremost. Trust your instincts and follow the path that feels best to you.

“Bad people” don’t drive you crazy – your perspective does ๐Ÿ™

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.

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.

You are a badass with a heart of an angel ๐ŸŒธ

If you have been brutally broken but still have the courage to be gentle to other living beings, then youโ€™re a badass with a heart of an angel.

Keanu Reeves
