Walk away..

Sometimes you have to walk away. You have to look at what you’re giving energy to and realize that even though you could stay, try to win their approval and climb their ladder, you could also make the brave choice to take whatever energy you have left to a space that welcomes you. There are times in life where walking away is the best thing to do for your health and who you are becoming. Even if it means certain people will change their opinions of you. You may just need to walk away, trusting that even then, there is so much more ahead of you.

— Morgan Harper Nichols

– C. Joybell

Peace

Peace is the result of retraining your mind to process life as it is, rather than as you think it should be.

When it comes to life..

When it comes to life, the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.

― G.K. Chesterton

Antidote

Gratitude is an antidote to negative emotions, a neutralizer of envy, hostility, worry, and irritation. It is savoring; it is not taking things for granted; it is present-oriented.

– Sonja Lyubomirsky
