..... Sometimes just let it roll off like water off a duck's back. Don't overanalyze the words, because the more you internalise it the more you get worked up about it, and the more power you give to those thoughtless and mean words. Hear it without really hearing it, come into the light of the kind of person they are by their words, don't let it happen again, move on, and literarily drop it!!!! @diaryofanaijagirl
Life is too short to give power to someone's negative words. Their words don't matter anyways. Try to watch your words also. Guard your heart with all diligence.............
Ein Lieblingszitat! #Autorenwahnsinn Tag 24
Ein einziges Lieblingszitat hab ich gar nicht, es gibt so viele schön gesagte, berührende, tröstende, mutmachende, weise Worte, manche ganz frisch und andere schon Tausende Jahre alt ...
Dieses hier, von dem chinesischen Philosophen Laotse, ist für alle, die (wie ich ganz oft) das Gefühl haben, Umwege zu gehen, in Sackgassen geraten und Zeit zu verlieren, weil kein einfacher, direkter Weg zum Ziel zu führen scheint. -- Wir kommen trotzdem an! 😊
A favourite quote
I don't really have that one-and-only special quote, there are so many well-said, moving, consoling, encouraging, wise words, some new, and others thousands of years old.
This one, from Chinese philosopher Laozi, is for people (like me, very often) who end up in detours, dead ends, losing time, because the path forward never seems to be straight and simple. We'll get there nonetheless!
Everyone is the age of their heart. - Guatemalan Proverb @gmillersnap @wordswag @snapseed_app #ageisjustanumber 💥There was a person behind me in this selfie @snapseed_app took her right out of the photo.✅
Day to day I see women struggling with themselves. Being insecure, feeling unworthy, feeling not appreciated, falling for the wrong men.
The root of this problem is not the behaviour of some evil guys because there are more good ones than evil ones out there.
The problem is that these women struggle deeply to love themselves, to free themselves from self-hate.
A woman who loves herself is strong and should not be underestimated. We give life to this earth. We carry the unborn child and we, the women, are the ones to experience the most beautiful pain there is.
We give love to this earth
and a woman that truly loves herself and everyone arounds her, shines brighter than every star in the sky.
Love your beautiful bodies,
Spread your positive energy.
Every single one of you is unique.
Go and celebrate exactly this and stop comparing yourself to others. A flower doesn't compare itself to other flowers and a star doesn't shine less bright only because other stars shine bright as well.
You are capable and worthy of so much more than you believe. Those secret longings for something more in your life are often messages from your inner deep wisdom. It's a good idea to listen. Who knows where they might lead you!
This resonated with me mainly because I'm a writer. But I'm human first, so I'm asking myself "are my actions always consistent with my words?" It is indeed quite easy for people to ACT or FAKE right these days; in words and deeds; on and off social media. I believe I'm a good and genuine person, although complex(I shock myself sometimes😁) and easily misunderstood, but yeah, what you see is what you get.

For my daughters,
You're gonna be born into a society that will try to sew your lips and chain you down but before they try to seize your voice remember that you are born with scorching flames inside of you, you're meant to roar like a dragon. So never let anyone silence yourself.
You're gonna grow up surrounded by people who will insist on sculpting your body according to what their idea of perfection is. But before they blind you with this delusion, I want you to know that you're not obliged to meet up with their standards of beauty.
You're made of cosmos and combat, and that's far more beautiful than what anyone can ever be.
You will be expected to keep quiet, may it be when a boy in your class pulls your hair or when a man gropes you on the street. You will be told not to overreact. At times like that I want you to know that you're stronger than you think, and you should raise your voice against anyone who violates your body. Tell the boy in your class not to pull your hair so he won't grow up to think it's okay to grope a girl on the street.
Education is one of the most important part of you life, don't let anyone make you believe otherwise. You will be born to be leaders, to move mountains, to make a change in this world and nothing will help you more than having a good education so never compromise your education for anyone.
You're gonna be born with divine fire wrapped in thunder. You're gonna be strong like hurricanes and cyclones. And nothing can ever stop you.
For when you will be born,
It wouldn't be the birth of just a girl;
It would be the birth of a revolution. //M.I.
Hay muchas cosas que no tienen sentido en esta vida, la educación ya no es lo que era antes, los valores se han perdido. Yo sólo sé actuar de una manera, no sé si es la correcta, pero es la que me han enseñado y hasta este año no me he dado cuenta que a mí me llena. Ahora soy feliz, una felicidad que no es material, no es de tener ni poseer objetos o personas, es una paz mental que me ha costado varios años conseguir. Si te sientes sólo busca a Dios, porque está ahí y un día en tu vida te darás cuenta de que está contigo. La tranquilidad del alma se consigue amándole. Echo de menos a esas personas que me ayudaron de pequeño en mí colegio, a la madre Carmen, a mis profesoras, a mi abuelo, curiosamente las personas que más felices me han hecho en la vida y de las que más orgulloso me siento tenían algo en común, habían aprendido a amar de ese modo tan desinteresado, tan puro. Echo de menos un mundo así, sin tanta tecnología, un mundo pleno en el que había respeto y valores, ahora quiero ser yo la persona que algunos recuerden con alegría por haber hecho el mundo un poquito mejor. Dios es mi definición de amor, el que quiera que lo acepte, que lo respete, igual que yo respeto las pérdidas de valores que mis ojos ven cada día. 💭 #quote#quotes#lifequotes#quotestags#frases#instaquote#quoteoftheday#quotestagram#instaday#instanote#funnyquotes#life#writing#meme#quotesdaily#quotesgram#quotesofinstagram#instamood#instalike#color#daily#feeling#black#true#wisewords#special#words
#tbt Whilst out running on this beautiful morning, I was thinking about my wonderful friends and our weekend in Paris. They helped me put a lot of things into perspective. Wise words from these beauties. I couldn't and wouldn't want to be without them ❤️❤️❤️
So today, I woke up to messages and calls from customers wanting to buy one kind of hair or the other....I give God thanks. My humble prayers are being answered through these wonderful people. They are my blessing today. Thank you Lord. May the Lord hear your prayers today my good people. May he make me a blessing to you and you to me! Amen Have a blessed day God's children! Now let's get to work!
Affirmation: Today, I will choose happiness regardless of the difficulties on my path. My happiness comes from my gratitude for everything in life and savouring the little moments of joy. Today, I have a choice and I choose happiness.
