My life is falling apart again. Don't worry, I know it will come back together; but for now I am stuck deciding the best way to pick up the pieces.
To keep things on the positive side, I am going to post a few quotes that need to be heard right now. 

“Once you’ve had enough and you can’t do it anymore, you consider the possibility that there might be a better way. That’s when your head cracks open and God comes in.” - Marianne Wiliamson

"Every time you feel hurt, offended or rejected, you have to dare to say to yourself: 'These feelings, strong as they may be, are not telling me the truth about myself. The truth, even though I cannot feel it right now, is that I am the chosen child of God, precious in God's eyes, called the beloved from all eternity, and held safe in an everlasting embrace."
Henri J.M. Nouwen

“There is a brokenness
out of which comes the unbroken.
There is a shatteredness
out of which blooms the unshatterable.
There is sorrow beyond all grief,
which leads to joy; and a fragility
out of whose depths emerges strength.
There is a hollow space too vast for words
through which we pass with each loss,
out of whose darkness
we are sanctioned into being.”

“Listen to your heart,. It knows all things, because it came from the Soul of the World and it will one day return there.”
Paulo Coelho

“No matter how long your journey appears to be, there is never more than this: one step, one breath, one moment--now."
Eckhart Tolle

“The process of personal growth isn’t always easy. We must face our own ugliness. We often must become painfully aware of the unworkability of a pattern before we’re willing to give it up. If often seems, in fact, that our lives get worse rather than better when we begin to work deeply on ourselves.”
Marianne Williamson.
