welcome to yourself

I don’t care
if you messed up today
or if you mess up tomorrow
or if things didn’t go as planned
and you didn’t win all of your battles
this is not a straight road
this is not an easy journey
so I don’t care
what I do care about is you
and your health
and you are trying
and you are strong
so don’t let today stop you
let it help you to learn
because things won’t always be easy
but you will get there
you will recover
Non-violence is a sign of strength, self-confidence and truth.
- Dalai Lama  (via mediaexposed)
You will have bad times, but they will always wake you up to the stuff you weren’t paying attention to.
- Robin Williams (via purplebuddhaproject)
The greatest religion is to be true to your own nature. Have faith in yourselves.
- Swami Vivekananda. Hindu monk (via purplebuddhaproject)
I have had to experience so much stupidity, so many vices, so much error, so much nausea, disillusionment and sorrow, just in order to become a child again and begin anew. I had to experience despair, I had to sink to the greatest mental depths, to thoughts of suicide, in order to experience grace.
- Hermann Hesse, Siddhartha  (via 19040825)
It’s not about what you’re capable of, it’s about what you are willing to endure.
- Orrin Woodward (via purplebuddhaproject)
You will always be getting praise and blame, but do not let either affect the poise of the mind: follow the calmness, the absence of pride.
- Buddha (via thecalminside)
