That’s what I feel is love
May 22, 2011

Cory: Mom, Listen, I haven’t been together with Topanga
for twenty-two years, but we have been together for sixteen.
’Kay, that’s a lot longer than most couples have been together.
I mean, when we were born, you told me that we used to take
walks in our strollers together in the park. When we were two,
we were best friends, I mean, I, I knew everything about this girl.
I knew her favorite color. I knew her favorite food. Then we became
six, you know, and Eric made fun of me because it wasn’t cool
to have a best friend that was a girl or even know a girl, so for
the next seven years I threw dirt at her. I like to call those
”the lost years.” Then when I was thirteen, Mom, she put me up
against my locker and she kissed me. I mean, she gave me my first kiss.
She taught me how to dance. She was always talking about these
crazy things and I never understood a word she said. All I understood was
that she was the girl I sat up every night thinking about, and when I’m
with her I feel happy to be alive. Like I can do anything. Even talk
to you like this. So that’s, that’s what I feel is love, Mom, when I’m
better because she’s here, and now she won’t be. So we’re finished.

What are you waiting for?

We think more logically now. As teenagers, we think more deviously. We make excuses, we lie, we hide things. We concoct plans we never would have thought of before. Plans that will get us in trouble, but we do anyway, just for the thrill. We’re young. We have all the time in the world to make mistakes, to choose the wrong path, but also to figure out where we fit and what makes us happy. Because that’s what life really is. It’s about taking chances. It’s about jumping into deep waters, even when you can’t see the bottom. Sure, you’ve got everything to lose, but you also have everything to gain.  If you sit around constantly afraid of everything, you’ll get no where. So don’t live with regrets. Do what you want to do, when you can do it. And most of all, take that chance. Just jump in.

We’ll be alright

You don’t choose who you fall for. You just fall and you get this person who is all wrong, but yet so right. You know that you like them so much, except sometimes they drive you insane and no one can explain.

When your girlfriend has Taylor Swift lyrics as her status, you know you’re either doing something very right, or something very wrong.

You cannot protect yourself from sadness without protecting yourself from happiness.

I got to thinking about fate. That crazy concept that we’re not really responsible for the course our lives take. That it’s all predestined, written in the stars. Maybe that explains why, if you live in a city, where you can’t even see the stars, your love life tends to feel a little more random. And even if our every man, every kiss, every heartache, is pre-ordered from some cosmic catalogue, can we still take a wrong step and wander off our own personal milky way? I couldn’t help but wonder, can you make a mistake and miss your fate?
Sex and the City

Inside the heart of each and every one of us there is a longing to be understood by someone who really cares. When a person is understood, he or she can put up with almost anything in the world.

The quickest way to acquire self-confidence is to do exactly what you are afraid to do.

The past is always going to be deep inside our souls. You can’t run from it, you can’t hide from it. You just have to accept it and remember that you can’t bring the good memories back, but when you’re having one of those days, you can sit back and reminisce on the times you had and the feelings they brought.

Life changes. You get it all lined up just the way you like it and then something beyond your control comes along and bumps your off center. How nice it would be if you could get everything just the way you want it and say “okay, now…stay!”. But nothing stays the same. You grow up, make friends, lose friends, go to college, lose track of people, meet new ones and sometimes you ask yourself why. But all I can tell you is that every single experience you go through changed you in some way. Every new person who comes into your life changes you. Every moral dilemma or emotional experience you come up against changes you. It’s your job to decide how.

I mourn the loss of thousands of precious lives, but I will not rejoice in the death of one, not even an enemy.
