Remember when we were young
We felt like the luckiest ones
Nothing to worry about
The whole world was a hand-me-down
It's hard to be different
It's even harder when you wanna fit in
High school was a catastrophe
It was a failure factory
Turn it up, turn it up
Turn up your radio loud
Don't forget where you come from
It's too soon to be proud
Remember when we were young
- Brett Dennen

- Jim Crace, Harvest



To live every day as if it has been stolen from death, that is how I would like to live. To feel the joy of life… To separate oneself from the burden, the angst, the anguish that we all encounter every day. To say I am alive, I am wonderful, I am. I am. That is something to aspire to.
- Garth Stein, The Art of Racing in the Rain


I want to apologize to all the women I have called beautiful
before I’ve called them intelligent or brave
I am sorry I made it sound as though
something as simple as what you’re born with
is all you have to be proud of
When you have broken mountains with your wit 
from now on I will say things like
You are resilient, or you are extraordinary
not because I don’t think you’re beautiful
But because I need you to know
You’re more than that
- Rupi Kaur


You never know what’s around the corner. It could be everything. Or it could be nothing. You keep putting one foot in front of the other, and then one day you look back and you’ve climbed a mountain.

Any day spent with you is my favorite day. So today, is my new favorite day.

That woman she's got eyes that shine
Like a pair of stolen polished dimes
She asked to dance I said it's fine
I'll see you in the morning time
- The Avett Brothers


Facing it — always facing it — that’s the way to get through.

When you’re climbing Mount Everest, nothing is easy. You just take one step at a time, never look back and always keep your eyes glued to the top.

Girls you’ve gotta know when it’s time to turn the page.
- Tori Amos


I tell you to keep going, not because it’s easy. Not because it doesn’t hurt. I tell you to keep going because there’s no other way. To stop is to die. Life is in motion. In growth. In change. Life is in seeking and in finding. Life is in redemption. Each moment is a new birth. A new chance to come back, to get it right. A new chance to make it better.
- Yasmin Mogahed


Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
