Thoughts To Contemplate


It is not beauty that endears, it’s love that makes us see beauty.
– Leo Tolstoy

I lied and said I was busy.
I was busy; but not in way most people understand.

I was busy taking deeper breaths.
I was busy silencing irrational thoughts.
I was busy calming a racing heart.
I was busy telling myself I am okay.

Sometimes, this is my busy-
and I will not apologize for it.

– Brittin Oakman

Be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe.
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.

– Sylvia Plath

The one thing you have that nobody else has is you.
Your voice, your mind, your vision, your story.
So, write and draw, dance and live,
build and play, as only you can.

– Neil Gaiman

Invest in people who invest in you.

– Unknown

Every season is one of becoming.
But not always one of blooming.
Be gracious with your ever-evolving self.

-Brittin Oakman

Maybe it’s out imperfections which make us so perfect for one another.

– Douglas McGrath (Emma)

Life is amazing.
And then it’s awful.
And then it’s amazing again.
And in between the amazing and the awful
it’s ordinary and mundane and routine.
Breathe in the amazing, hold on through the awful,
and relax and exhale during the ordinary.
That’s just living heartbreaking, soul-healing, amazing,
awful, ordinary life.
And it’s breathtakingly beautiful.

– L. R. Knost

Taking care of yourself doesn’t mean “me first.”
It means “me, too.”
You matter. Your happiness matters. Your health matters.
Your dream matters.
Today do at least one thing for you.
Take a walk in the rain.
Meet a friend for coffee.
Read a book. Plan a trip. Hug a tree. Help a stranger.
Create something. Sing something. Learn something.
Whatever it is that makes you smile, do a little of it each day.
Your children are watching.
Let them see you happy.
