• Compassion For Yourself

    Having compassion and empathy for why someone behaves the way they do based on their experiences, never means you have to tolerate the behaviour or hold space for it. You can absolutely have compassion and set a boundary. This is what it means to also have compassion for yourself.   Maryam Hasnaa

  • Breath, Breath, Breath.

    Every day, I consistently write down five things I’m grateful for. Sometimes it’s more than five. But if I can’t get to five. I just go, breath, breath, breath. Oprah

  • Keep Your Routines

    Many of our routines go out of the window around Christmas time, but it’s crucial to maintain the most important ones. For me, that means stretching, eating a good breakfast, writing in my journal, reading with my little ones, watering the house plants and sipping camomile tea before bed. Routines help to keep children grounded and give you a sense of stability throughout the day.   Beth Kempton Calm Christmas and a Happy New Year

  • Keep Going

    When someone spews something really hurtful, don’t pick it up and hold it. Don’t rub it into your heart, snuggle with it or carry it around for a long time. Don’t even put energy into kicking it to the curb. You’ve got to see it and step over it, or go around it and keep going. Brene Brown

  • My Wish For You

    My wish for you is that you continue. Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. Continue to allow humour to lighten the burden of your tender heart.   Maya Angelou

  • Beauty

    People often say that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and I say that the most liberating thing about beauty is realizing you are the beholder. Salma Hayek  

  • Perfectionism

    Many people think of perfectionism as striving to be your best, but it is not about self-improvement; it’s about earning approval and acceptance. Brene Brown

  • You Are Allowed

    You don’t have to explain why you want what you want. Do what you love, or love what you love. You are allowed to live a life that some people don’t understand.   @Projecthappiness_org
