"Be the Change you wish to see in the world" -Gandhi "I will be a Hummingbird, I will do the best that I can." -Wangari Maathai "Where stereotypes begin with a grain of truth, cliches begin with a boulder" - George Watsky "And she's gonna learn, that this life will hit you - hard - in the face - wait for you to get back up just so it can kick you in the stomach, but getting the wind knocked out of you is the only way to remind your lungs, how much they like the taste of air." - Sarah Kay "Do not fear what has blown up. If you must, fear the unexploded." -Suheir Hammad

Don't wish for a different past.

In your life, you may have made many mistakes. You have regrets and remorse, that you wish you'd never had. But if you let yourself dwell on the small mistakes, or pains, that you wished never happened, you'll never experience the joyful outcomes that they bring. Even if those things seem painful, and you can not see any sort of joyous consequence, those things have changed you, strengthened you, and made you to be a better person. So why would you wish away the bad, when it subliminally grants you the good? You need the bad, to compare to the good. To make you cherish the good times, and feel grateful.
