Marvellous May: Quote of the month

“And if today, all you did was hold yourself together, I am proud of you.”


Life is not always kind. It will stir you up, and throw you down so often; and you will not always have someone holding your hand. So you must take on that responsibility to hold yourself together. You must refuse to crumble and scatter.

Smile, laugh, sing, dance, walk away– whatever it takes to calm your nerves and keep you from¬†succumbing to rage. You can go home and cry later, or fight with yourself as you shuffle the various scenarios and alternate universes of the days events. Just make sure you look unscathed out there. Don’t let the world see you bleed. At least, not today.

Here is wishing you a Marvellous May!
