I keep fortunes from fortune cookies in my phone case for moments when I feel particularly unfortunate…..one says “you will soon hear wise words from a child” and the instant I read it I heard a kid say to his mom “I value you”.
“I think it took me breaking my own spirit to realize I had one in the first place. That may sound dark but it’s the truth. I was on autopilot my whole life, and I didn’t trust myself to be my own captain, so to speak. I realize now this has to change.”—Anonymous (via honeyinmytea)
