MIND: Controlada

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate. If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind. That’s the only thing you should be trying to control.

// Elizabeth Gilbert

MIND: Autonomia

The only relationship that can make both partners happy is one in which sentimentality has no place and neither partner makes any claim on the life and freedom of the other.

The Unbearable Lightness of Being // Milan Kundera

MIND: Attentive

I’m not a mess but a deeply feeling person in a messy world. I explain that now, when someone asks me why I cry so often, I say, “For the same reason I laugh so often – because I’m paying attention.” I tell them that we can choose to be perfect and admired or to be real and loved. We must decide.

Love Warrior // Glennon Doyle Melton

MIND: Uncertainty

We are all so afraid of uncertainty that we want a guarantee before we even try. It’s a numbers game. To play any game, you have to start. To win, you need to keep going. If you want to make your dreams come true, get ready for the long game.

Life is not a “one-and-done” sort of deal. You’ve got to work for what you want. Picasso created nearly 100 masterpieces in his lifetime, but what most people don’t know is that he created a total of more than 50,000 works of art… That’s two pieces of art a day. Success is a numbers game. You are not going to win if you keep telling yourself to wait. The more often that you choose courage, the more likely you’ll succeed.

The 5 Second Rule // Mel Robbins

MIND: Flighty

I am an excitable person who only understands life lyrically, musically, in whom feelings are much stronger as reason. I am so thirsty for the marvelous that only the marvelous has power over me.

Anything I can not transform into something marvelous, I let go. Reality doesn’t impress me. I only believe in intoxication, in ecstasy, and when ordinary life shackles me, I escape, one way or another. No more walls.

// Anaïs Nin
