Rest in Truth.

This was such an important post I couldn’t not share.

Via Dr. Andrea Dinardo.

Thriving Under Pressure


Truth is truth.

Let them gossip. Let them chatter. Let them say what they choose to say.

At the end of the day time will tell.

Rest. Relax. Sit back. Breathe in deep.

When the dust settles and the sun sets truth is truth. 

And it shall set you free.💫
