Whatever it is that is holding you, recognize its temporariness. Do whatever you can not to be paralyzed. Move, and move forward. Who the hell gave that negativity//doubt control? Take it back. Face whatever it is head on and break it. Create your own love, foster your own meaning into life, and inspire yourself. Don’t look at life through your ego. Accept it for exactly what it is and see the beauty in it. Feel the movement in the energy around you; move with it. And lastly, fucking laugh out loud at the complexity and weirdness of it all.
Please think about this as you go on. Breathe on the world.
Hold out your hands to it. When morning and evenings
roll along, watch how they open and close, how they
invite you to the long party that your life is.
But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.’
John Steinbeck, East of Eden (via allgreatandpreciousthings)
CHOOSE. SPEAK. ACT.
These words changed my life.
