"I am sure they will make the road to recovery seem clean. They'll use words to make healing seem pretty and pretend the bandages don’t feel heavy and still cause pain. Your sadness is never going to be near and tidy, and on some days you might even wonder how you’re going to pick up every shattered piece on the floor when burying your soul seems much easier. There will be moments where you have to convince yourself that feeling is better than being numb and that your aching bones are strong enough to carry on. There will be times things feel upside down and you are spinning on an axis that is never balanced. There will be days where you take steps backward and those new steps forward feel very far away. But even in the difficulty you are still taking steps, you are still making progress. And for every bump along the way, just remember you have come this far; might as well keep going." -Courtney Peppernell

People grow apart. Distance doesn’t always mean miles. Sometimes it means two friends going separate ways. The person you poured your heart out to, traveled through new cities with, called at three in the morning just to get ice cream, suddenly becomes someone who can’t even text you back. So, you start to wonder what happened and where it all went wrong. How can this person who was once your lifeline now be a stranger who holds all your memories? But people change and become caught up in their own lives. They may not even realize they are doing it. Sometimes friends disappear and we don’t know why. But you don’t deserve to be ignored. The things you have to say are important; you should never allow someone to make you feel as though they aren’t. You should never tolerate someone who can’t acknowledge the news you have to share. You don’t need this in your life. Let go of people who don’t make you happy.

Sticking with the sleep theme of last week for my healthy tip, there are more benefits than just better attention span and having more energy. Getting a good nights sleep can also:
Help your immune system function better. Your body won’t feel as run down which means it can fight off viruses and bacteria, especially with cold/flu season approaching.
Healthier skin: lack of sleep can contribute to your skin to aging a little faster, as well as make it harder to recover from cuts and bruises.
Help rid your body of toxins: Sleep allows your body time to clear out whatever junk and toxins may have gotten inside during the day. Some research shows a correlation between more sleep and decreased Alzheimer’s risk.
There are many benefits to sleep, way more than I could have covered the past two Wednesday’s. If you ever want to discuss them, shoot me a DM!
You can't skip chapters, that's not how life works. You have to read every line, meet every character. You won't enjoy all of it
Hell, some chapters will make you cry for weeks. You will read things you don't want to read, you will have moment when you don't want the pages to end. But you have to keep going
Stories keep the world revolving. Live yours, don't miss out
Doing some late night reading. Sometimes it feels so difficult making it through the day. People don't know your struggles yet the expectations overwhelm you and you feel obligated to fulfill them. Then it's night time, you survived the day; knowing that tomorrow you have to do it all over again. #LateNight #Reading #PillowThoughts
I woke up today at 5am and declared this was the start of really diving into my growth, health, and becoming the best version of myself. I did my affirmations, worked out, put some make up on, applied all them oils and set off ready for a kick ass day... Ready for the universe to respond to my intentions. Well she did and let’s just say I got my ass handed to me. Sorry target return lady for the tears shed in your presence. 🤣. I got it from every angle and I had the worst attitude about it. It took me until about an hour ago to embrace it, change my attitude and know I’m being tested to see how bad I want these changes. So note to self and anyone still reading this. Dream big dreams. Set your intentions. Take action and have a positive attitude while life throws you hurdles. You want this and you got this enough to keep pushing through. #goodnight #pillowthoughts #embracetheunexpected #livelifewithlove
