A Pick Me Up

The holiday season can be a bit draining and this cold, dreary weather makes it tough to keep going. I wanted to share this great quote below. Sometimes we all need a pick me up and I hope it helps you keep going through the next few weeks. I certainly need it.

β€œYou ruin your life by desensitizing yourself. We are all afraid to say too much, to feel too deeply, to let people know what they mean to us. Caring is not synonymous with crazy. Expressing to someone how special they are to you will make you vulnerable. There is no denying that. However, that is nothing to be ashamed of. There is something breathtakingly beautiful in the moments of smaller magic that occur when you strip down and are honest with those who are important to you. Let that girl know that she inspires you. Tell your mother you love her in front of your friends. Express, express, express. Open yourself up, do not harden yourself to the world, and be bold in who, and how you love. There is courage in that.”

 

 

In order to be happy, you sometimes have to experience being sad first. Once you know sadness, you know how to be kind.

For more inspiration and uplifting quotes, I share what inspires and motivates me on my Tumblr account. Since freshman year of college, I’ve used my Tumblr to express myself through visuals, my own poems and quotes, and other influential artists and authors. I love Sylvia Plath, Walt Whitman, and Kurt Vonnegut to name a few.

Have a great week!
