Muscle is created by repeatedly lifting things that have been designed to weigh us down. So when your shoulders feel heavy, stand up straight and lift your chin – call it exercise. When the world crumbles around you, you have to look at the wreckage and then build a new one out of all the pieces that are still here. Remember, you are still here.

The human heart beats approximately four thousand times per hour. Each pulse, each throb, each palpitation is a trophy engraved with the words ‘You are still alive.’

You are still alive.

Act like it.

↳ Ariadne

Ariadne was the daughter of king Minos of Crete and the sister of the Minotaur. She was tasked with keeping the Labyrinth in order and assuring the human sacrifices from Athens would be properly delivered to her brother. However, she fell in love with the Athenian hero Theseus, who eventually showed up in Crete as one of the intended sacrifices to end the terror reign of the Minotaur. Ariande helped Theseus by giving him a ball of yarn to help the hero orient in the labyrinth. After killing the Minotaur, Theseus took Ariadne with him when he started homeward. However, soon he abandoned her on the island of Naxos, where she was found by the god Dionysus. In the end, Ariadne went with Dionysus to Mount Olympos to live there together as husband and wife.
