6 Things I Learned in 2014

1) Relapse happens. The pain will come in waves and you'll go days thinking that you've beaten it and can finally move on. Remember, it's okay to be sad sometimes, just make sure you get back up and try again tomorrow.

2) You and only you can determine your own self worth. Look in the mirror every morning and tell yourself that you will love yourself today. You will love the messiness of your hair, and the freckles across your cheekbones. Love the skin that heals and forgives. Love all of you. Nourish your body, care for it, heal it, find a home in yourself.

3) Wash your sheets, change your pillow case, wash your blankets. Wash away all the days you've spent withering in bed crying. Wash the tears away. Wash away all the sad skin cells. Wash away the darkness.  Take a shower today. Brush your teeth. Make yourself a good breakfast and remind yourself that you deserve to eat. Dress to impress--yourself. Do whatever makes you feel put together, even if you're not leaving the house.

4) Get new curtains. Close them. Close your eyes. Open them. Pull away the curtains. Let yourself be reminded that there may be things in life you can't control, but how much light enters your room is something you can control. The same can be said for your soul. You decide how many people you let help you. You decide how and who you love. Let that sink in for a moment.

5) Smart is good, but no letter on a piece of paper is ever worth losing your mental health over.

6) It's okay to ask for help, even the best fall down sometimes. Take thirteen steps, and fall fourteen but feel success in your broken bones. Don't let yourself cry at the base of your mountains. Climb them with bricks tied to your feet and gravel in your pockets. Don't be afraid of falling because once you hit the ground, you can finally start heading up again.

Lydia Sherrer: I first read The Speaker almost a decade ago when I first discovered author Sandra Leigh. I loved it then, and I still love it now.

sibyleisley: Right away, I was charmed by the characters in Nothing Between Us. Bella is fun to follow and SO easy to relate to, and Jace is the guy that you could spend 24/7 with and not get sick of him. And together, they're adorable and so right for each other. The writer did such a great job making me car...

Silver: Its a very good story you have here. Felicity´s ability is interesting and original, I love it.

Anjali Roongta: Amazing story!

Bella_Lee_Taylor: the plot of the story is good and I can't wait to read the second book, but you need to check your grammar because as I was reading there were were important parts of the story some of the spelling and grammar were out of place and the way you you worded things can be better but I can see that th...
