1- people too weak to follow their own dreams will always find a way to discourage yours.
2- i know that there are days when you feel that your heart is broken again. do you know why? because instead of walking forward, you hurt yourself by looking back.
3- this year, do what makes your 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.
4- missing someone gets easier everyday because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will.
5- distance is not for the fearful, it is for the bold. it's for the ones that are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. it's for those knowing a good thing when they see it, even if they don't see it nearly enough.
6- someday, everything will come together. but until then, live it up; do what makes you happy. if someone doesn't agree, then screw them. pick yourself up and deal when shit happens. remember that mistakes only make us stronger, everything happens for a reason, the only regrets you will have in life are the risks that you didn't take, and well-behaved women rarely make history. above all else, go with your gut and guard your heart.
7- imagine a world with endless dreams, dreamt with all eyes open. a world filled with sunshine beams and words for the deaf spoken. imagine a world in color and the black and white will soon go. a world where we can love each other and where every star can glow.
8- buy a blank notebook. draw a huge heart on the cover. don't write anything negative in here. if you need another outlet, make a separate notebook. this one is all about love, personal growth and getting back up. fill it with beautiful images, reaffirming thoughts and quotes. write in it every day and each day write one thing you are grateful for in your life.
9- here's to the nights when the grass is your seat, the heat from the fire kisses your feet, your friends out-number the stars, and even the chilliest of nights, are still warmer than the cold one in your hand.
10- you're a book written in ten different languages. all of them beautiful. none of them i understand.
11- so, please, just be patient. i'm so afraid to care about someone. i know it seems like i'm this strong girl who can get through anything, but inside i'm very fragile. i've had so many things thrown at me, and each one has only made a crack. what i'm afraid of is shattering.
12- the best moments in reading are when you come across something, a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things that you'd thought special, particular to you. and here it is, set down by someone else, a person you've never met, maybe even someone long dead. and it's as if a hand has come out and taken yours.
13- i want to draw something that means something to someone. you know, i want to draw blind faith or a fading summer or just a moment of clarity. it's like when you go and see a really great band live for the first time, and nobody's saying it but everyone's thinking it: we have something to believe in again. i want to draw that feeling but i can't. and if i can't be great at it then i don't want to ruin it. it's too important to me.
13- in life, we do things. some, we wish we had never done, and some we wish we could replay a million times, but they made us who we are, and in the end they shape and detail us. if we were to reserve them, we wouldn't be the person we are today so just live. make mistakes and have wonderful memories. but never for a second forget who you are, where you've been, and most importantly, where you're going.
14- sometimes when things are out of wack, it freaks us out a little and makes us feel like we're losing something thats really important, and that scares us even more, so we try really hard to hold on to whatever it is we think we're losing and sometimes, we hold on a little too hard.
15- sometimes you think you've gotten over a person, but when you see him smile you suddenly realize, you're just pretending you're over him to ease the pain of knowing that he will never be yours.
16- it's a traffic jam when you're already late. it's a no smoking sign on your cigarette break. it's like ten thousand spoons when all you need is a knife. it's meeting the man of my dreams and then meeting his beautiful wife. and isn't it ironic? don't you think it's a little too ironic?
17- an apology doesn't make things right. if anything, it just helps you sleep better at night. i know you meant well, but words will never change a thing. you're so selfish, you wouldn't even let me in on the coldest of nights.
18- i wish my mom told me the same thing about boys as she did scary movies, "don't worry honey, they're all fake." i wanted a perfect ending. now i've learned the hard way that some poems don't rhyme, and some stories don't have a clear beginning, middle, or end. life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what's to happen next. life flies by so you have to embrace it, forget the past cause you can't erase it.
19- you're not special to me anymore. i'm used to this now. i've been hurt before. so leave me alone like you've always done, because you've hurt me too much to be the right one.
20- the worst way to miss somebody is to be sitting right next to them knowing you can't have them.
