“It is important that we forgive ourselves for making mistakes. We need to learn from our errors and move on.”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

George R.R. Martin
“Some old wounds never truly heal, and bleed again at the slightest word.”
George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones

Steve Maraboli
“Get Off The Scale!

You are beautiful. Your beauty, just like your capacity for life, happiness, and success, is immeasurable. Day after day, countless people across the globe get on a scale in search of validation of beauty and social acceptance.

Get off the scale! I have yet to see a scale that can tell you how enchanting your eyes are. I have yet to see a scale that can show you how wonderful your hair looks when the sun shines its glorious rays on it. I have yet to see a scale that can thank you for your compassion, sense of humor, and contagious smile. Get off the scale because I have yet to see one that can admire you for your perseverance when challenged in life.

It’s true, the scale can only give you a numerical reflection of your relationship with gravity. That’s it. It cannot measure beauty, talent, purpose, life force, possibility, strength, or love. Don’t give the scale more power than it has earned. Take note of the number, then get off the scale and live your life. You are beautiful!”
Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being Free

“If you didn't love him, this never would have happened. But you did. And accepting that love and everything that followed it is part of letting it go.”
Sarah Dessen, Dreamland

“I don't want to hurt you or anybody so please forget about me. Just try. Find yourself a better friend.”
Nina LaCour, Hold Still
