Wordy Wednesday: Love Yourself

“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

  • Just the 652nd picture that no one asked for of a random French territory in the Caribbean
  • Each palm tree represents a time I skipped the gym before vacation 🤠🤰🏾
  • There’s a lot of money to be made in making you afraid, making you hateful, and making you believe that the American Dream is dead. There’s a lot of money to be made in putting you in a bubble where you only listen to or care about people that agree with you. And there’s a lot of money to be made in making you believe that our country was never great or will never be great again. Know that in spite of all the noise and manufactured panic, this is the best time to be alive to date in the most wonderful country on God’s green earth.
  • Another day another vacation pic
  • late to the party but I still Stan America and thicc kings that love America
  • When you work in politics after a while, I think patriotism often feels reduced in one way or another to partisan tribalism. It’s either “rah rah Trump” or “fuck Trump.” It’s calling everyone that disagrees with you a name, and convincing yourself that the only people that love our country are the ones that agree with you. But that’s not what it is at all. And watching @operationfinallyhome surprise a disabled veteran, his wife and his daughter with a mortgage free home just days before the Fourth of July reminded me of that. God Bless America
  • A little chonkier than I’d like to be atm but with the starving kids out there who am I to say no to the second breadstick basket?
