This is a page from my copy of The Alchemist. A book I will surely read many times throughout my life. “When I have been truly searching for my treasure, I’ve discovered things along the way that I never would have seen had I not had the courage to try things that seemed impossible…” #livingthisrightnow #youmustreadthisbook #quotes #paulocoelho #thealchemist

As you become more comfortable in your skin and have a deeper understanding of how you want to feel, you will begin to find a new kind of courage.  It’s a courage that makes you question when people try to define happiness and success for you.  It’s a courage that motivates you to honor your gifts no matter what anyone thinks. It sees past the labels and the names you were called in the past when you dared to show your individuality.  It’s a courage that gets stronger with practice.  The #30Layers30Days Self-Discovery Challenge starts on September 1. You can sign up for free via the link in my profile. Tag a friend so they can join in too.  πŸ“·: @cdot_chester #allthemanylayers #selfdiscovery #selflove

For me, this is what discouragement looks like. It’s not giving up, it’s not losing hope. It’s acknowledging your questions and facing your truth, no matter what it is. Even if it’s not convenient or what you expected, it’s real. And to get to the next part of yourself, you have to address it.  There’s no shame in going through ups and downs to create the life you want. Read more at allthemanylayers.com. β˜…

Fear is a natural reaction to moving closer to the truth.

"She was a woman still controlled by the traumas of her girlhood. It made more sense to put her three-year-old self in the dock. As Dr Byford explained, she was really the victim of a vicious, peculiarly female psychological disorder: she felt one thing and did another. She was a stranger to herself.

And were they still like that, she wondered - these new girls, this new generation? Did they still feel one thing and do another? Did they still only want to be wanted? Were they still objects of desire instead of - as Howard might put it - desiring subjects? No, she could see no serious change. Still starving themselves, still reading women’s magazines that explicitly hate women, still cutting themselves with little knives in places they think can’t be seen, still faking their orgasms with men they dislike, still lying to everybody about everything.”  - Zadie Smith
