“One day it just clicks. You realize what’s important and what isn’t. You learn to care less about what other people think of you and more about what you think of yourself. You realize how far you’ve come and you remember when you thought things were such a mess…and then you smile. You smile because you are truly proud of yourself and the person you’ve fought to become.”

“There is a diamond in you…

Stop looking for something, when something has already found you. You have been living with your eyes closed. Awaken. It is there. Take it. It is yours. It could all be yours. Everything. If only you believe in all the things that stir inside of you. You are marvelous. You are what you have been looking for.”
