The reward for conformity is that everyone likes you, but yourself.
~ Rita Mae Brown
Nothing’s worth leaving myself for. Not being on time, not getting everything done, not “getting” love. If the whole world falls apart because I do what it takes to stay right here, in deliciously continuous contact with myself, so be it. If I lose some money, lose some friends, and let balls drop like flies, so be it. I would die for this beauty of myself, unfolding at the speed of blooming.
~ Lindsay Sworski
