Remember this, had any other condition been better for you than the one in which you are, divine love would have put you there.

Sometimes you feel so deeply that you begin to wonder if anyone will understand the depths of your heart, the range of emotions that go on behind the scenes of your face. 
The chaos of ideas and struggles, the ever moving cycle of what if’s and why’s that seem to entangle you in a net that never seems to go away. 
So you feel all the pain of those around you, you remember the ache that has lived inside you for as long as you can remember,
 and you wait for someone to come along and look at you, 
saying “You are familiar, and I want to get to know you again.”
This is what we all want, to be seen and known, 
to be loved deeply as we feel deeply. 
To breathe and exhale without the fear that someone will leave 
when we have turned our back. 
We want a love that is as steady as our own breathing, 
and as life-giving as the air we take in.
Hold on, dear heart, hold on for the one who will see you, and know you. Who will love you with a love that is familiar;
 because our hearts have known too many strangers 
who have tried to call our hearts a pitstop, 
when it is a home, 
waiting for someone to find their way to a place that is safe.

When you begin living your life’s purpose, actually experiencing your Soul’s work in your body, it is like becoming a wild, rolling river.
You begin to realize that everything you’ve ever experienced, was meaningful.
That every person who ever carved their initials into your spirit, was there to make you who you needed to be to do what only you can do.
You blaze. Your heart sings. Your pulse taps out the rhythm of your soul-song.
You gaze through eyes of love at those who bear witness to your coming-of-age, and you know that the world needs what you are.

Alison Nappi

A one-winged bird in a storm is better off than a full-winged one in a cage. 
Freedom is not found, it’s created. 
Whatever your prison, take flight.

Many women have been tricked out their softness, inaccurately led to believe 
that it equates to weakness and docility. 
But a soft woman doesn’t necessarily mean a fragmented woman. 
There’s actually great strength in the irresistible softness of femininity. 
While she knows how to yield and surrender when necessary, 
a soft woman could be leading a pack a wolves and not be noticed.
