Love should come with questions...Who are you? What are you? How do you operate?

Truth sandwich. Money isn't in this list, because if you allow it to change you, that's not something that's "inevitable" - that's a choice, and a character defect. Cheers!

Snakes in the same garden.

I sent the other version of this, pertaining to a similar situation, to @25park - we were discussing how people hate you or mistreat you and then suddenly when they find a common interest (such as not being too fond of the same person, perhaps) or shared dislike, they act like your friend, so that they can feed on that. It's classless. My version here is about truly sensing those around you and their intentions. Anyone can pretend to share things in common with you. It can make you feel important. Be careful. Feel important on your own. Thanks @25park for the good convo!! Cheers everyone!

Self-awareness: the elixir that hurts and heals all at once! Cost: $Bravery. Where to get it: Look in the mirror before pointing your finger.

Many moons ago, my Aunt Amy @aimroper12 taught me about "self as a mirror". This is when you attract in others how you feel about yourself, or what you feel you deserve. This is exactly why it's important to love yourself enough to "raise the bar". And if that someone can't meet the bar, if you're unhappy, if your needs are not met and you are drowning in someone else's selfishness, walk away. Life is already too short, don't lose yourself before you ever even find your own worth.

A hummingbird flew in front
of me today, with its hello
and goodbye dance.
Its lightning entrance
and exit from my sight.
Like a blink.
Like a seconds long perfect dream.
Like you. And like me.
We never stand still.
But I like to think that if I saw
them in slow motion,
they're smiling, too.
Like me. And like you.
Because although they
look like a mess in the air,
they know exactly where they are going.
- Erin Van Vuren

This was one of the first 20 pieces I posted. A short, gut punch quote, to motivate cutting the cord from toxic people, and not taking it all so personally. It's simple, and old as dirt, but I'm reposting it today because I'm seeing it all over the Internet with my name taken off of it (smh)...and also, because we all need the reminder to have faith in the process of things that are out of our control. Cheers!

These voices live inside of you, like monsters under the bed, and they are not real. Teach the other voices - the good ones - how to roar louder. (PS - I'm well aware that I turned an adjective into a noun. That was the intent, because sometimes our brains need things to be tangible. Cheers.)

Nobody is ever stuck. There is always a way out of the darkness. Always. I promise.
