«You know that place between sleep and awake where you’re still dreaming but it’s slowly slipping? I wish we could feel like that more often. I also wish I could click my fingers three times and be transported to anywhere I like. I wish that people didn’t always say ‘just wondering’ when you both know there was a real reason behind them asking. And I wish I could get lost in the stars.

Listen, there’s a hell of a good universe next door, let’s go.» – E.E. Cummings

1. That thing you’re afraid of? That label you shy away from? That word that seems too bold? That audacious goal? The life you think you don’t deserve? Aren’t talented enough to have? Aren’t brave enough to claim? Fuck. That. Shit. None of that baggage you’ve been carrying around has a place this year. Kick to the the curb. Now. This year only has space for the bold and the audacious and the brave. Don’t try to convince me you are not those things. I know better and your excuses hold no weight here. You are brave and bold and audacious and one hell of a god/dess. Always have been. Always will be. So fill every step you take with intention. Then remember that intention is worthless without action – so get a move on, sugar. – Jeanette LeBlanc

2. You can accept or reject the way you are treated by other people. But until you heal the wounds of your past, you will continue to bleed. You can bandage the bleeding with food, with alcohol, with drugs, with work, with cigarettes, with sex, but eventually, it will all ooze through and stain your life. You must find the strength to open the wounds, stick your hands inside, pull out the core of the pain that is holding you in your past, the memories, and make peace with them. – Iyanla Vanzant

3. I do not exist to impress the world. I exist to live my life in a way that will make me happy. – Richard Bach

4. Living with integrity means: Not settling for less than what you know you deserve in your relationships. Asking for what you want and need from others. Speaking your truth, even though it might create conflict or tension. Behaving in ways that are in harmony with your personal values. Making choices based on what you believe, and not what others believe. – B. De Angelis

5. Don’t tell me that you’re scared. Show me how your heart is trying to climb out of your chest, how you’re leaving a trace of cold sweat on everything you touch, what the darkness tastes like when you’re forced to swallow it, what the trees are murmuring in Sanskrit behind your back and how the wind is feasting on your skin. – Andrea Balt

«Life can be fucking hard. Month after slogging month. It’s relentless really. You are weary and worn down and exhausted. You wonder sometimes, will it ever ease up?

And then it does. Just like that. The exact thing you had been longing for, wrapped with a bow and delivered to your doorstep. Right when you least expected it. Right when you needed it most.

The sky clears. Burdens lift. Old, limiting stories are wiped out. Boom. Long dwelled upon fears rendered entirely obsolete. The universe smiles and says;

«Here, take this. It’s for you. You’ve been so brave and so patient. I’ve been waiting for just the right time to give it.»

Game change moment. Things are possible today that were impossible yesterday. Anything could happen.

Perfection? Little chance.
A free ride? Certainly not.
Smooth sailing from here on out? Un-freaking-likely.

But still, in that moment, when the news is delivered. In that moment the sun is shining like possibility incarnate. You’re driving down the freeway with the windows down and your hair blowing crazy in the wind.

The song on the stereo is Hollywood soundtrack perfect for the moment. Like the universe dialed in the most utterly perfect setting just for this occasion. And then that one piece of news shifts your trajectory in an utterly essential way and you feel yourself settle into space just a little bit differently.

In that moment your eyes shine and your mouth curves in a smile. In that moment you let out a powerful exhale and speak some divine gratitude. In that moment, it is perfectly clear.

Anything could happen.  It can. And it will. And it does.

And there is nothing to say but thank you.»

Jeanette LeBlanc.

‘Cause I was going round in circles. Lost forever. I couldn’t overcome the hurdles. All or nothing. It was never somewhere inbetween. Fear of something. It seemed to have a hold on me. Then I changed. And I could take my mind wherever. Thoughts rearrange. And blend the colours back together. Now I’ve found the visions in my dreams unbound.

Jeg vet ikke helt hva det er, men det er et eller annet jeg liker skikkelig godt med slike enkle tegninger med korte ord og sitater på. Selv om det er enkelt, blir jeg likevel inspirert – og det er fint. Ta en titt på profilen til brukeren, for der er det nemlig mye bra.
