“If you celebrate your differentness, the world will, too. It believes exactly what you tell it—through the words you use to describe yourself, the actions you take to care for yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself. Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated.”
Victoria Moran, Lit From Within: Tending Your Soul For Lifelong Beauty

“When someone tells me "no," it doesn't mean I can't do it, it simply means I can't do it with them.”
