  1. Please don’t interrupt her greatness.

This is perfect for the guys that would like to sweep you off your feet, but this is also a reminder for you to prioritize and focus on your goals. Never settle for a relationship that’s only a fling, you don’t have time for that.

  1. Imperfect progress.

You are a work in progress, allow yourself to grow and not necessarily in the arms of another.

  1. She became the journey

You are the journey, don't be afraid when you've taken the wrong turn and find yourself alone. Accept the change because better things are waiting ahead of you.

  1. Put yourself on top.

Cherish yourself, adore yourself and do what makes you feel happy and accomplished. Take this time to fall in love with yourself.

  1. And it will be okay because I don't quit.

If you feel anxious or lonely when you're not in a relationship or just came from one, make this pin your mantra.

  1. You are entirely up to you

Single or not, you are your own boss when it comes to decisions, especially when it comes to the important ones. Do not rush because of peer pressure.

  1. You are love. You can’t lose you

You decide how you feel. There may be a time when you decide that you feel empty or broken, but it's also you who finally decides that everything will be alright again. Don't lose that side of self-love. Never lose track of you.
