Built Better



When you’re broken, you can be more than rebuilt. You can be built with more than you had, you can be built into more than you were. You can be built better, you can be built with choice.

Cannot Destroy One For Another



You could be doing it unconsciously, or you could be doing it half-knowingly. You could be led into doing it, or you could be compelled to do it. You could be under the impression that doing so would bring you relief, or you could be obsessed with extracting revenge. But you cannot, should not, are not to do it.

Choose Your Battles


Choose your battles. You needn’t fight all those that come your way. Some are far more useful to you and your purpose than are others.

No matter what the unknowns, the most assured way of achieving something, of achieving anything, you find, is to go after it, to try for it.

To keep creating them. Make the decision to keep building. To keep giving whatever you can. Because there is peace in pursuit.

The Journey Makes You Fit


They say it’s the journey, not the destination. But I used to frequently find myself questioning this. My issue used to be, if the journey’s nice and of reasonable length, and the destination is just a point to be reached, sure the journey’s the bigger pleasure. But, if the journey’s hard and Continue reading The Journey Makes You Fit
