Wise Words Wednesday

You know what? Let’s all take a minute to recognize how amazing we are. Every hardship, every happy experience, every embarrassing, sad, angry moment that’s made us who we are today. Let’s not take it out on ourselves, which we do every minute of every day… ’cause well, we’re humans. Let’s be proud of the flaws AND the accomplishments, because they are who we are as humans. K? K.

Wise Words Wednesday



“You have it now and that is all your whole life is; now.  There is nothing else than now.  There is neither yesterday, certainly, nor is there any tomorrow.  How old must you be before you know that?  There is only now, and if now is only two days, then two days is your life and everything in it will be in proportion.  This is how you live a life in two days.  And if you stop complaining and asking for what you will never get, you will have a good life.  A good life is not measured by any biblical span.” – Ernest Hemingway, For Whom the Bell Tolls
