You can. I just know it.

Holy macaroni. This week has been a doozy.

I won't go into details because why revisit negativity and even give it a moment of space on this here slice of the interweb.

But here's what I want to do:
I want to direct you to words that have really helped me get through these past few days. If I could, I would have every one of you meet my family, because they are full of wisdom and inspiration. Unfortunately that would be a little tricky. But there are tons of sincerely brilliant people out there who are kind enough to share their bits of advice. I'd love to share these links of gold.

When you receive negative feedback, remember, it doesn’t matter how many people don’t get it, it matters how many do.

Still, no matter how much progress you make there will always be the people who insist that whatever you’re trying to do is impossible.  Or they may incessantly suggest that the idea or dream as a whole is utterly ridiculous because nobody really cares.
When you come across these people, don’t try to reason with them.  Instead, forget that they exist.  They will only waste your time and energy.

  1. We all can use reminders like those! Love your post today!

  2. amen on relationships that bring you down! that can be such a tough one, but it's so important to surround yourself with healthy people :)

  3. Loving your posts, I read your blog every now and then. And find it really inspirational. I think you made a good decision. You would want to first finish with "have to"s rather than "would like to"s early in life. Then the world will be your oyster.

    Also, it always helps me to think that not everything is in my control and the decisions I thought "I" made is actually already are decided by a lot of factors in life. So I like to trust the universe and just let go..

    Good luck with the studies. Maybe see you in Germany soon (I live in Berlin) ;)

    With Love,

  4. Pretty much most of my favourite things you post I 'pin' or you post things I've already 'pinned'. I think we'd be real life friends! I hope you have a great day!
