"your body is made of the same elements that lionesses are built from. three quarters of you is the same kind of water that beats rocks to rubble, wears stones away. your DNA translates into the same twenty amino acids that wolf genes code for. when you look in the mirror and feel weak, remember, the air you breathe in fuels fores fires capable of destroying everything they touch. on the days you feel ugly, remember: diamonds are only carbon.
you are so much more. "
"I hope you wake up one day and feel more alive than ever.
I hope you have a day off where you do nothing but drink coffee
and listen to your favorite songs.
I hope that you stop waiting for a sign before your life passes you by.
(just go do it)
I hope you drink a margarita under a palm tree and laugh until you cry.
I hope you will put down your pen for one day
and think of something else other than words.
I hope you travel. Please, just wake up and leave.
And when you leave, I hope you fall in love with life again.
I hope you remember your past with a smile on your face.
All I’ve ever wanted was for you to be happy."
