Weekly Inspiration

Imagine meeting someone who wanted to learn your past not to punish you but to understand how you needed to be loved.

You never know what people are going through and sometimes the people with the biggest smiles are struggling the most, so be kind, Always.

Never forget yesterday, but always live for today, because you never know what tomorrow can bring, or what it can take away.

Be patient... You're about to overcome something you have been dealing with. Your mind and heart will soon be at peace again. Everything will be okay.
