We place so much emphasis on feelings
Often forgetting
That although feelings may shape us in many ways
In the end, it’s not feelings that define us. 

You are not your feelings, nor should you be.
You are much greater than that.

You can spend a lifetime trying to detach from them or,
You can use them as fuel you to drive you forward.

Feelings are not to be ignored
But dwelling on them can only do so much.
What defines you in the end, is how you respond.
It’s what you do, 
The decisions you make and the path you take, 
Despite how you might be feeling.

  • Communication is not a one way street
    Communication is not a one way street. It’s not about talking, it’s about listening. It’s not about reacting, it’s about responding. It’s not about knowing, It’s about understanding. It’s not about judgement or pretense It’s about connection.
  • Leaving it all behind
    Some things are certainly worth holding onto -  Others we just hold onto because we are too afraid to say goodbye.  Not because we can’t But because doing so means facing our own mortality
