“7 Laws of Self Awareness

1. You are what you think.
2. You are what you desire.
3. You are what you seek.
4. You are what you believe.
5. You are what you value.
6. You are what you do.
7. You are what you master.”
Matshona Dhliwayo

“Sometimes all you can really do is keep moving and hope you end up somewhere that makes sense.”
Allie Brosh, Solutions and Other Problems

“So, I thought to myself as I walked away, this is what happens when you live on Earth. You crack. You hold reality in your hands until it burns and then you have to drop the plate.”
Matt Haig, The Humans

“The exertion it takes to get back in shape when we are out of shape is arguably more than it takes to stay in shape...”
Sakyong Mipham, Running with the Mind of Meditation: Lessons for Training Body and Mind

Sue Klebold
“As I emerged from the dark and terrifying period of those last panic attacks, I felt like Dorothy stepping cautiously into the Technicolor land of Oz. Once safe on the other side I saw that my own crisis had served as an enlightenment of sorts. It had taught me some things I needed to know in order to better understand Dylan's life, and his death.”
Sue Klebold, A Mother's Reckoning: Living in the Aftermath of Tragedy
