Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.

– Confucius



The harder the struggle, the more glorious the triumph.

Tough people

Tough people are not born. They’re made when there’s no one there to dry their tears.


The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.

― Sylvia Plath

Your Best

A problem is a chance for you to do your best.

– Duke Ellington


Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go; just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.

Pain and Suffering

Pain is what the world inflicts upon us. Suffering is our emotional reaction when we fail to make the difficult conscious choice to choose Joy.     

— Jonathan Lockwood Huie


Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.

Haruki Murakami


When you can’t remember why you’re hurt, that’s when you’re healed.

— Jane Fonda

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
