Slow down
July 31, 2010

Sometimes, all you can do is not think; not wonder; not obsess; not imagine. Sometimes you have to just breathe. Breathe in, breathe out.

The quality of your friends always matters more than the quantity.

Take down that wall you have built up so high. Make yourself weak and vulnerable. Don’t be afraid to pursue what your truly want. And tell me what is the reason that you are holding back.

She hugs him goodbye like its nothing, while all she wants to do is hold on forever,
but she lets go, smiles, & walks away.

You learn a lot about people when you listen to the songs that mean something to them.

To be perfectly honest, I wasn’t sure of anything. I didn’t know if wanting you was purely craving the feeling of comfort that you provided or if I still did truly love you. I realized too late that you were the best for me, and my prince charming wasn’t coming my way because he’d already rode past.

Your outlook on life defines how you react to those
life-changing moments.

“Just because you deserve it doesn’t mean they’re
going to give it to you. You have to fight for it.
Coach Carter

Sometimes, no matter how much faith we have, we lose people. But we never forget them. And sometimes, it’s those memories that give us the faith to go on.

That’s the problem with us, we’re too much alike. We’re stubborn asses and always want to get our own way. We both hate to be wrong and love to be right. But that’s the thing about love.No matter what happens, we always come back for each other one more time.

In a perfect world, there would be no mirrors.
Because every girl would have a perfect guy to tell her that she looks beautiful.

I liked the days when boys were written down on paper, listed as your top 5, instead of you carrying them in your heart. When you would brag about how cool your parents were, instead of talking about how they now ruin your lives. When the only reason you didn’t want to get out of bed for school was because you were sleepy, and now it’s because each day is a struggle. While hide and seek was the coolest game, instead of guys seeing how many girls they can go out with at one time. When you wished upon birthday candles, and now you wish on a boy who is holding your heart. The days when you were just a kid who still had their innocence, and now you’re a teenager who knows everything has changed.

Everything will be okay in the end. If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.


The better half of me
July 31, 2010

I get lost in the beauty
Of everything i see
The world ain’t as half as bad
As they paint it to be
If all the sons
If all the daughters
Stopped to take it in
Well hopefully the hate subsides and the love can begin
It might start now..Yeahh
Well maybe I’m just dreaming out loud
Until then

Come home
Cause I’ve been waiting for you
For so long
And right now there’s a war between the vanities
But all i see is you and me
The fight for you is all I’ve ever known
Ever known
So come home

Don’t look back
July 30, 2010

When we wake up in the morning, we have two simple choices. Go back to sleep and dream, or wake up and chase those dreams. The choice is entirely yours.

It’s all about character. Watch your thoughts; they become words. Watch your words; they become actions. Watch your actions, they become habits. Watch your habits; they become character. watch your character; it becomes your destiny.
Frank Out

So I’ll keep on smiling, because no one said this would be easy.

It was through falling flat-on-my-butt in love with him that I realized the most important thing about first love: as deep as it is for you at the time, its only a teaser for even more amazing things to come. And whether first love ends dramatically or hurtfully or simply, eventually all the emotional fog surrounding it clears and we can see that first love is so special because its one of the few experiences in life when we follow only our heart- not reason, not “rules”, not what other people say. Maybe thats why we all hold on to our first love in some way – why we miss it or long for it, want to reclaim or redo it. Because first love opens our eyes to that feeling thats everyones been talking about, singing about, writing about. It makes you feel like you’ve crossed over from not knowing, to knowing. With first love, everything is new – and the possibilities it awakens in you are exhilarating.

Sometimes pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there. Because you can’t remember a time in your life when it wasn’t, but then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong, only because its so unfamiliar. Then in that moment you realize you’re happy.

Rejection is God’s way of saying, “Wrong direction!

If having things turn out the way you want them to is a measure of a successful life then some would say I was a failure. The important thing is not to be bitter over life’s disappointments. Learn to let go of the past. And recognize that everyday won’t be silence and when you find yourself lost in the darkness and despair, remember it’s only in the black of night that you can see the stars and those stars lead you back home. So don’t be afraid to make mistakes, stumble, fall, cause most of the time the greatest rewards come from the things that scare you the most. Maybe you’ll get everything you wish for, maybe you’ll get more than you could ever imagine. Who knows where life will take you. The road is long and in the end the journey is the destination.

The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead .
Marilyn Monroe

Sometimes you just want to put other people’s happiness before yours … because you love them, because they deserve it. Sometimes you want to go out of your way for other people just because you know that it’s important that they get a chance to smile once in a while.

Far away
July 29, 2010

What’s worse than wanting something you can’t have? It’s not knowing what you want. Wishing on all the stars in the sky for the answers to your questions, for something to believe in, someone to hold. Having absolutely no control over yourself, being caught up in a place you wish you were miles away from. Being stuck somewhere between the past and the future, nowhere near where you should be, in the present. Stuck in yesterdays and tomorrows, so far from home, far from everything you know and love. The uncertainty could just tear you to bits.

Trust life a little bit
July 28, 2010

There’s always that one guy that you will always go back to. Even though you date other people in between, you are always in the back of your mind hoping to run into that guy.

Maybe this is the way it is. Maybe we don’t really choose the way everything works out. We just have to go with the wind and see what happens, where the world takes us and where the world takes us in the end.

You never stop loving someone;
you just learn to live without them.
And when they finally come back to you,
it’s like they never left and nothing changed.

You told me that there’s no way the whole situation hurt me. But it did, it hurt me worse. I hold the responsibility for losing you, I know there is nobody to blame but myself. And you will always hate me for what I did to us. But for you, you can’t blame yourself. It all just happened to you. You don’t have to live with the guilt of your mistakes everyday, and wonder what if you weren’t such a fuck up.

“Better to be hurt by the truth than comforted by a lie.
The Kite Runner

In the space between yes and no, there’s a lifetime.
It’s the difference between the path you walk and the one you leave behind;
it’s the gap between who you thought you could be and who you really are;
it’s the legroom for the lies you’ll tell yourself in the future.

Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment. These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed.

I’m selfish, impatient, and insecure. i make mistakes. i am out of control and at times, hard to handle. but if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you don’t deserve me at my best.
Marilyn Monroe

He’s like nobody else in the world. When I’m with him, it’s like I’m split in half. Part of me is on fire, going crazy if I’m not touching him. The other half is calm and peaceful just perfectly content, knowing he is the one for me.

At this age, everything is changing. Day by day we don’t notice, but just look back over the past year and you realize everything has. People you thought that were going to be there forever aren’t, and people you never imagined you’d be speaking to are now some of your closest friends. Life makes little sense and the more we grow the less sense it will make. So make the most of now, before it all changes once again, because in the near future, all of this is only going to be memories.

My mother taught me to focus on being myself and not to worry what other people think about you. I know that as long as I’m a good person I’ll stay on the right path. From my dad I learned that when someone tells you “No” it’s only the beginning of a conversation. They both have always let me know that I can do anything I want to do as long as I don’t give up. They are the most important role models in my life because they are exactly who I want to be when I grow up. They are supportive and understanding and I try every day to remember what they’ve taught me.
Lauren Conrad

We tend to fall in love the same way we get sick; without wanting to, without believing it, against our will & unable to defend ourselves. And then we lose love exactly the same way.

I miss you when something really good happens, because you are the one I want to share it with. I miss you when something is troubling me, because you are the one who understands me so well. I miss you when I laugh and cry because I know that you are the one that makes my laughter grow and my tears disappear. I miss you all the time, but I miss you most when I lay awake at night and think of all the wonderful times we spent with eachother; for those were some of the best times of my life.

“To me, fearless is not the absence of fear. It’s not being completely unafraid. To me, fearless is having fears. Fearless is having doubts. Lots of them. To me, fearless is living in spite of those things that scare you to death.”
Taylor Swift

Close your eyes
July 28, 2010

“Sometimes I feel like if I open my mouth I’ll start speaking nonsense. I’ll start admitting things that no one should know. I only wish for everyone to know my secrets, for everyone to know all the monsters that tear within my insides, crawling out wishing to escape. maybe if they knew, they would understand, maybe they would care. Those days, when I feel like I can’t contain anything inside me, I sleep. I sleep so I won’t say anything that most will never fully comprehend. I sleep to escape into a thoughtless world where he loves me, where she is still my friend. I wish to scream to the world, out my window, in the parking lot. I wish to scream, “I am here and I am not alone.” but some days that is all I fear. I fear of being alone, I fear of never finding someone to stay around and appreciate every ounce of my being. I fear for never finding love. I just wish I could get something right, just once. I just wish I could leave this city and live in a small cabin in the woods with the one I love. No problems, no money issues, no work, just love holding us together like the trees that will surround us.”

Amor Vincit Omnia
July 27, 2010

I’ve finally found that life goes on without you & my world still turns when you’re not around.

For beautiful eyes, look for the good in others; for beautiful lips, speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the knowledge that you are never alone.
Audrey Hepburn

When silence between two people is comfortable, that’s when you know you have found love.

If you want to know where your heart is, look where your mind goes when it wanders.

The problem with people is not that they don’t have the answers. It’s that they aren’t ready to accept them.

Life is like a 1,000 page book. You want to quit halfway through. But then you realize you have a lot left to look forward to.

Looking for something, then finding something else, and then realizing that what you’ve just found is more suited to you than what you thought you were looking for.

To be understanding is more important than to be right.
Sometimes, all a person needs is not a brilliant mind that speaks, but a patient heart that listens.

You can’t just say whatever you want.
You’re as responsible for your words as you are for your actions…
And some words hurt.

And she loves regardless of everything that has stained her life. She loves with everything she has left, and that is beautiful.

True friendship is not about being there when it’s convenient; it’s about being there when it’s not.

I am coming to terms with the fact that
loving someone requires a leap of faith,
and that a soft landing is never guaranteed.

Sometimes you’ll never know the true value of a moment until it becomes a memory.

“The hardest situation to stay happy in, I think,
is when you’re trying to find love, and yourself at the same time.
It just doesn’t seem to fit well.”
Sophia Bush

To have a friend, be a friend
July 23, 2010

Friends are people that touch your heart. You could spend hours with them doing nothing at all and it can be the best time of your life, just because it was with them. They’re the people you can share your secrets with, cry with, laugh with, and just have fun with. They don’t judge you or make you change. They accept you exactly as you are. You all share something in common and are tied together by memories, tears, laughs and smiles. Friendship is the strangest but greatest thing in the world.

We all need a hero
July 22, 2010

Appreciate the love you have, and treasure it in your heart. It’s easy to take what you have for granted, and even easier to lose it when you do. Every love is a gift; keep the treasure near by.

Maybe sometimes you have to stop waiting for someone to come along and fix what’s wrong. Maybe you have to stop feeling sorry for yourself and realize that no one else has the answer. Sometimes, you gotta be your own hero.

I was worried I wouldn’t be enough for you. And that’s why I lied. That’s what scares me. Not being enough. Not smart enough, not pretty enough, not good enough.

I don’t care how far you are from me, or how long it’s been since we’ve talked. I don’t care how mad I got at you, or how mad you’ve been at me, you’re still what matters most to me, and I’m never gonna give that up.

Breakdowns are breakthroughs. It takes hitting the bottom to find your way to the top.

Love is a lot like music, there’s many different kinds & endless amounts of it. But there are only a few songs you don’t get tired of.

If you actually had a life, you’d stop talking about mine.

The truth is, it doesn’t matter who I used to be- it’s who I’ve become.

Sometimes you just can’t open up to someone. Not because you don’t trust them. But because once you tell someone how you feel inside, you’re giving them permission to hurt you.

Distance is to love like wind is to fire; it extinguishes the small and kindles the great.

Worrying is a waste of time. It doesn’t change anything, it just messes with your mind and steals your happiness.

Confront the dark parts of yourself and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing use the pain as fuel as a reminder of your strength.

Imagine a future moment in your life where everything’s perfect. You know, the greatest moment of your life and you get to experience it with one person. Who’s standing next to you?

Sometime you have to let go of the one you love to find out if there was ever something there to hold on to.

In love

Oh you know, you know, you know
Id never ask you to change
If perfect is what you’re searching for
Then just stay the same

So don’t even bother asking
If you look okay
You know I say

When I see your face
There’s not a thing that I would change
Cause you’re amazing
Just the way you are
And when you smile,
The whole world stops and stares for awhile
Cause girl you’re amazing
Just the way you are

Just The Way You Are; Bruno Mars
