I believe in giving yourself grace despite everything you didn't accomplish today. I believe in going to bed when you're exhausted, even if there's more work to be done. I believe in dreaming big enough to make people think you're crazy. I believe in chasing those dreams. I believe in lessons, not failures. I believe in hard work and hard rest. I believe that the secrets of life lie in the unnoticed, in the quiet, and in the space in between. I believe in choosing happiness every day. I believe that optimism is a choice. I believe that great love is simple. I believe that loving yourself is always the first step. I believe that the first step is always the hardest.
