Quote for a Rainy Sunday

My mom had given me a book with this quote in it before I moved to London. I often find that it helps to lessen or just make sense of the pressures and anxieties that life can bring, reminds me that where I'm at in my life is OK, regardless of what others may think, and gives me hope for the future. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. x

"Don't ever forget that you are unique. Be your best self and not an imitation of someone else. Find your strengths and use them in a positive way. Don't listen to those who ridicule the choices you make. Travel the road that you have chosen and don't look back with regret. You have to take chances to make your dreams happen. Remember that there is plenty of time to travel another road- and still another- in your journey through life. Take the time to find the route that is right for you. You will learn something valuable from every trip you take, so don't be afraid to make mistakes. Tell yourself that you're okay just the way you are. Make friends who respect your true self. Take the time to be alone, too, so you can know just how terrific your own company can be. Remember that being alone doesn't always mean being lonely; it can be a beautiful experience of finding your creativity, your heartfelt feelings, and the calm and quiet peace deep inside you. Don't ever forget that you are special." - Jacqueline Schiff
