“The most important thing you need to know is the vision…The vision is better endings. The vision is the restoration of broken families and broken relationships. The vision is people finding life, finding freedom, and finding love. The vision is breaking cycles and making changes. The vision is the possibility that better days are ahead. The vision is that we know we’re loved more than we’ll ever know. The vision is hope and that hope is real.”

If ur feeling small today I dare you to sit up straighter, look someone who scares u directly in the eye, take up room at the dinner table, make yourself bigger, when ‘sorry’ laps at the back of your tongue, tries to pick up after you, remind yourself that your existence doesn’t demand an apology, that you are allowed to make mess and take up space, do not be afraid to expand. Every single goddamn minute. Expand, expand, expand

i needed this today

maybe it was fiction,
how i loved her.
it felt fucking real to me.

It’s raining. I’m so god damned sad. I’m contemplating a backslide & just doing what’s expected of me. I’m tired of fighting the fear to be the person I want to be. We all use the future as a way to escape the present; maybe I was never meant to get out of the labyrinth.


I’ve got 99 problems and my inability to self motivate is causing every single one of them.
