Leave some love!
I don't believe you have to be better than everybody else. I believe you have to be better than you ever thought you could be.
I moved on to another town, wrote you letters till the ink ran out. When the clouds rolled in I grabbed the keys and played that song that we used to sing. I met a boy a lot like you, it’s funny how he used to sing it too. But he always just a little out of key so much different than you and me. Oh I, Oh I’m not even trying. Oh I, Oh I but I can’t stop smiling, yeah.
This year, do what makes you happy and forget about the things that may stand in the way of that feeling. Let go of the pain that was caused by trying to find love and this year, let love find you. You have 365 days to make it wonderful.Either you run the day or the day runs you.
There's a point in your life when you know who's there forever and who's just around for a while. People change, but keep in mind so do you. Sometimes for the best and sometimes for the worst. Bad things happen to everyone, but you're not in it alone. People lie, and some people just don't care how you feel, but that's life. Your heart beats, no matter how much pain you're in, but everything will be okay eventually. There are always people in your life that just make your day, no matter where they are.
“You did a terrible thing. It doesn’t mean you’re a terrible person.”
We laughed and laughed, together and separately, out loud and silently, we were determined to ignore whatever needed to be ignored, to build a new world from nothing if nothing in our world could be salvaged, it was one of the best days of my life, a day during which I lived my life and didn't think about my life at all.
-Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer
It's just that I’m not use to somebody actually caring about me. I’m not used to somebody wanting to be with me, just me. So, if I act like I’m pushing you away, it’s because I’m afraid that once you get to know me, really know me, you will realize I’m not as great as you once thought I was.
That's what life is about. Those moments when you feel entirely carefree, like nothing can touch you. It's those moments that make the hard parts so worth it. It's moments like that that make this heartache bearable. I know it'll pass - my moments will come.
Today is enough. You don't need forever and always. You don't need promises of days that never come. Today is enough. You don't need the words that cannot possibly be true. Nothing is forever. Nothing lasts for always. Today should always be enough.
We have been fooled into thinking we need others to be happy.
Life is like a party. You invite a lot of people, some go, some join you, some laugh with you, some didn't come. But in the end after the fun, there would be a few who would clean up the mess with you. And most of the time, those were the uninvited ones.
That night I started to think about belief. Maybe it's not even advisable to be an optimist anymore. Maybe pessimism is something we have to apply daily, like moisturizer, otherwise how do you bounce back when reality batters your belief system, and love does not, as promised, conquer all? Is hope a drug we need to go off of, or is it keeping us alive? What's the harm in believing?
