It's something we all should hear.
When fighting our own demons and battles, it's easy to falter in our challenge to love ourselves. This is why, that in whatever you may face in your life, that you must face it with courage and good company. For a true mate will always remind you that it is your flaws that make you curiously unique and divine.
This is a little #lifesaying I came up with to #motivate myself to do better.
In the cases when I find it daunting or hopelessly foggy to look towards my long term future, I break things down by moons (months).
It's much easier to see your growth when you set monthly goals to tackle. If I end up failing in one way or another, I kindly remind myself "New moon, new life," thus allowing myself to forgive myself and allow myself another chance to grow in the coming month. The point is that it's never too late to work for a new and better life. We simply need to allow ourselves the opportunity. This is applicable to work, love, creative development and any other area of personal growth.
Remember there is always a new moon to shine on you as you reach for the stars. ✨
I know it may be late in the evening, but there is no other time better to be inspired than when you are under a blanket of #stars. I had the blessing of spending time with incredibly #inspiring company who remind me how important it is to live without #fear. Friends, writers, and dreamers -- nothing great in life is possible without the passion and preseverance to reach that golden horizon. I encourage you to do also yourself the service of reminding yourself of the beauties you are blessed with in this otherwise daunting thing we call life. You are profound and have the potential of the stars you are made from. Yeah. #science. Look it up! Keep creating, keep loving and keep learning, lovelies! //
What inspires you? ✨ //
A message to fellow dreamers and do-ers :
Don't take difficult times as punishment, but as an energy to motivate you to continue to look towards the future and your next high tide in the waves of life. Don't let pain break you, but embolden you to show the world what you have to give. You are capable of beautiful things. Don't ever forget that-- and if you need reminding. That's what I'm here for.

How to Fight Your Battles and Win Every Time
And they say you learn nothing of value from video games...
As I’ve fought through the trenches of my problems and personal baggage, one of the major truths that often stood as an obstacle to any solution offered by a friend often came as a whisper in the back of my mind:
‘You don’t know me. You don’t know what I’ve been through…’
In hindsight, these words were a knee-jerk instinct to push away anyone that offered to relate to the emotional injuries I’ve suffered. Those scars were mine and as much as I didn’t want to admit to it, I would sooner give in to my personal demons than let anyone else try to take a peek at my feelings in an attempt to fix them.
Thankfully, I’ve grown since then and realize that not all battles should have to be one-on-one boss fights.
Still, I had already experienced also enough to know that, much like most video games, even if you do have a team of support, backing you up with chain attacks, health potions, and regenerative spells, it’s ultimately your final blow that kills the beast.
You’re the one who’s in control of the game and main storyline.
