Happy Birthday to me! I'll admit from the outset that this post is well and truly scheduled, because I refuse to embrace blogging and social media on my birthday, and by the time you're reading this, I'll be having a superbly relaxing day with loved ones!

Rather than dedicate a post to a birthday makeup tutorial (although I will list the makeup I'm wearing for my birthday/in the photos at the end of the post for you), or showing you the outfit I'll be wearing on the day, I wanted to spread a little positivity and encouragement with a small collection of uplifting and just lovely quotations and mantras. I hope you're all having an utterly wonderful day and I'll be back, after a couple of days of rest and enjoyment, at the weekend :)

one. // If you don't know where you want to go, then it doesn't matter which path you take.

two. // Nature does not hurry, yet everything is accomplished.

three. // On the difficult days, when the world is on your shoulders, remember that diamonds are made under the weight of mountains.

four. // The trees are about to show us how lovely it is to let things go.

five. // Don't be eye candy, be soul food.

six. // A party without cake is just a meeting.

seven. // Smooth sea never made a skilled sailor.

eight. // Even after all this time, the sun never says to the earth, 'You owe me.' Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.

nine. // Let your heart be your compass.

ten. // Most of our childhood is stored not in photos, but in certain biscuits, lights of day, smells, textures of carpet.

eleven. // Imagine all the wondrous things your mind might embrace if it weren't wrapped so tightly around your struggles.

twelve. // I didn't come this far to only come this far.

thirteen. // Shine, for you are light and wonder. For there are galaxies within you and stardust dances in your soul, stars live in your eyes and glory and grace in your bones. You are beautiful, you are light and wonder, you shine.
