Clarity. Sometimes that's all I need to get through bumps in the road... lately things have been extremely up and down. I'm stressed with my school work, my family, friends and the relationships I have with people. Something I have really improved and done well on this year has been my ability to pick myself up when I've fallen down (both metaphorically and literally... hehe). I'm practising self-love, repair and picking up pieces. I'm getting better and sometimes the best thing to do is remember how lucky I am. Really appreciate the things in my life that I am lucky to have.

Why do you put your self esteem in the hands of complete strangers?

— Helena Bonham Carter

Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes, but when you look back, everything is different.
— C.S. Lewis

I have learned silence from the talkative, tolerance from the intolerant and kindness from the unkind. I should not be ungrateful to those teachers.
— Kahlil Gibran

I love these quotes Maria! You know, I wish I had have 'discovered' self love earlier, when I was your age...I used to stress and breakdown all the time, and over worry about everything. It has only been since this year that I have learnt to be completely happy with myself, despite not always having good days. It's so wonderful being able to care for myself by loving and accepting who I am; it's the best lesson I have ever taught myself!

I am sure everything will turn out okay in the end :)
