“Until you value yourself, you won’t value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. ”

– M. Scott Peck

“Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself.”

– Harvey Fierstein

“The eyes of others our prisons; their thoughts our cages.”

– Virginia Woolf

“Low self-esteem is like driving through life with your hand-break on.”

– Maxwell Maltz

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and falling short; but in setting our aim too low, and achieving our mark.”

– Michelangelo

“Why should we worry about what others think of us, do we have more confidence in their opinions than we do our own?”

– Brigham Young

“Our self-respect tracks our choices. Every time we act in harmony with our authentic self and our heart, we earn our respect. It is that simple. Every choice matters.”

– Dan Coppersmith

“Your problem is you’re… too busy holding onto your unworthiness.”

– Ram Dass

“Man often becomes what he believes himself to be. If I keep on saying to myself that I cannot do a certain thing, it is possible that I may end by really becoming incapable of doing it. On the contrary, if I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”

– Mahatma Gandhi

“We are always on our guard against contagious diseases of the body, but we are exasperatingly careless when it comes to the even more dangerous collective diseases of the mind.”

– Carl Jung

“The best day of your life is the one on which you decide your life is your own. No apologies or excuses. No one to lean on, rely on, or blame. The gift is yours – it is an amazing journey – and you alone are responsible for the quality of it. This is the day your life really begins.”

– Bob Moawad

“Your relationship with yourself sets the tone for every other relationship you have.”

– Robert Holden

“The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you but yourself.”

– Rita Mae Brown

“It is not your job to like me – it’s mine.”

 – Byron Katie

“Optimism is the faith that leads to achievement. Nothing can be done without hope and confidence.”

– Helen Keller

“When nobody else celebrates you, learn to celebrate yourself. When nobody else compliments you, then compliment yourself. It’s not up to other people to keep you encouraged. It’s up to you. Encouragement should come from the inside.”

– Joel Osteen

“Self-pity gets you nowhere. One must have the adventurous daring to accept oneself as a bundle of possibilities and undertake the most interesting game in the world making the most of one’s best.”

– Harry Emerson Fosdick

“I prefer to be true to myself, even at the hazard of incurring the ridicule of others, rather than to be false, and to incur my own abhorrence.”

– Frederick Douglass

“When a woman becomes her own best friend life is easier.”

– Diane Von Furstenberg

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”

– George Eliot

“Don’t ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.”

– Howard Washington Thurman

  • I too went to a horse race 2 weeks ago
  • im pro life, and I’m conflicted, and I think that’s a good thing. And I think the more questions we ask ourselves and our fellow Americans despite what we believe or what we think we know, the better off we’ll all be. I wrote a blog post for the first time in forever and I hope you’ll read it, even if you hate me after. Link in bio, read before bitching. And I’d also encourage you to go over to @backinfebruary_ to read a unique, refreshing, balanced and most importantly compassionate perspective from a single mother that became pregnant unexpectedly.
  • The dress: $6 
the pizza I ate in it: $14
realizing that if I go on enough weird bumble dates I’ll probably write a book and become exorbitantly wealthy: priceless
  • Counting down the days until no one in the continental US can contact me unless I have WiFi and I’m blacked out on a beach somewhere getting burnt to a crisp in Caribbean sun
  • Remember when our parents told us not to talk to people on the internet and I live with someone I met on FB and I’m going to a wedding for someone I met on insta lol
  • Found my Barbie dream house right off of U street 🥰
  • I work hard because I have a dream of stacking hundreds on each blade of a ceiling fan above my bed (that will be mostly ornamental because I’ll have central air) and making it rain
