"Yes there is a big distance between us but no I am not giving up. I could have chosen anyone nearby and that would have solved the long distance problem but I don’t want to select mediocre when I have the best."
- Bernadette Shaw
“The old healer to the soul: It’s not your back that hurts, but the burden. It’s not your eyes that hurt, but injustice. It’s not your head that hurts, it’s your thoughts. Not the throat, but what you don’t express or say with anger. Not the stomach hurts, but what the soul does not digest. It’s not the liver that hurts, it’s the anger. It’s not your heart that hurts, but love. And it is love itself that contains the most powerful medicine.”

"If you’re struggling, you deserve to make self-care a priority. Whether that means lying in bed all day, eating comfort food, putting off homework, crying, sleeping, rescheduling plans, finding an escape through a good book, watching your favorite tv show, or doing nothing at all – give yourself permission to put your healing first. Quiet the voice telling you to do more and be more, and today, whatever you do, let it be enough. Feel your feelings, breathe, and be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that you’re doing the best you can to cope and survive. And trust that during this time of struggle, it’s enough."
