“To me, true love is the sweetest thing in life. That’s why we’re all either in love or looking for love. Sometimes you have to work for it - especially when life gets in the way, but i believe true, deep love is always worth fighting for.”—
“Life is too short to wake up in the morning with regrets, so love the people who treat you right and forget the ones that don’t and believe that everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said that it’d be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.”—Anonymous (via quote-book)
“Happiness is always a by-product. It is probably a matter of temperament, and for anything I know it may be glandular. But it is not something that can be demanded from life. And if you are not happy you had better stop worrying about it and see what treasures you can pluck from your own brand of unhappiness.”—Robertson Davies (via julie911) (via quote-book)
“Things don’t go wrong and break your heart so you can become bitter and give up. They happen to break you down and build you up so you can be all that you were intended to be.”—Samuel Jackson. (via quote-book)
“The first step towards change is acceptance. Once you accept yourself, you open the door to change. That’s all you have to do. Change is not something you do, it’s something you allow.”—Will Garcia (via julie911) (via quote-book)
“It’s so damn easy to say life’s so hard,
everybody’s got their share of battle scars;
as for me I’d like to thank my lucky stars
that i’m alive and well.”—Dave Matthews (via wtftori) (via fuckyeahdavematthewsband) (via quote-book)
Friday: after school on friday, everybody left so i got picked up by my mom around 3:30, went to get thai tea, blockbuster to rent Up and The Ugly Truth. Stopped by TK to get me some Wonton Soup, and i went home and ate my late lunch and watched Up. Up is soo good. i’d never get tired of that movie. After the movie was done it was around 5. killed about an hour on the computer, and got picked up by West’s mom and went to his house. We got there around 7:20 and then we watched basketball games. hella close games. Warriors and Bulls OT, Cleveland and Blazers were pretty close too. After that it was around 8:30, me and west wanted to do something productive so we decided to go to Great Jump, we tried to take Tim but he didn’t want to go cuz he had a wrestling match early in the morning. After about 2 hours of Great Jump, we went back to west’s house and it was 11. We watched Madea something something. i forgot the rest but it was a good ass movie. it was done about 12:30. West hella knocked out so i tried leaving by myself but when i unlocked the door, Peter ( their dog) started fucking barking. so it woke up west and he greeted me out.
Saturday: Woke up around 10, went online and killed time till like 1 and i showered and got ready to go to the mall with Derek. I finished my christmas shopping for everyone except melanie..Derek always got some nice jeans and some stuff from footlocker. This bitch got scammed tho. wont go into details. Derek’s grandpa dropped me off at home and my friend Justin picked me up and we went to eat pho and another friend came through. After pho we went to tapioca express, after we got our drinks we went to the park to have a talk. good talk. we went back into the car, and i won’t say anything, but what was said and opportunities that came up in the car stays in the car. haha after that we went to watch a movie, Invictus, good story but it was too long for me. Justin dropped me off and we had a good one on one talk. got home at 11 and stayed up till like 2 and went to sleep!
Sunday: woke up at 10, watched The Ugly Truth, went to church, great lunch and fun for some reason. went home around 2 and started wrapping gifts. while i was wrapping it gave me a idea so it made it fun. i was multitasking so i was done around 4. after i finished wrapping i went online and after about 30 minutes i went to watch tv.
That was pretty much it! it was hella fun tho. Tell me about your weekend =)
“You may not be her first, her last, or her only. She loved before she may love again. But if she loves you now, what else matters? She’s not perfect - you aren’t either, and the two of you may never be perfect together but if she can make you laugh, cause you to think twice, and admit to being human and making mistakes, hold onto her and give her the most you can. She may not be thinking about you every second of the day, but she will give you a part of her that she knows you can break - her heart. So don’t hurt her, don’t change her, don’t analyze and don’t expect more than she can give. Smile when she makes you happy, let her know when she makes you mad, and miss her when she’s not there”—Bob Marley. (via quote-book)
“I always thought that there was this one perfect person for everybody in the world, you know, and when you found that person the rest of the world kind of magically faded away, and, you know, the two of you would just be inside this kind of protective bubble, but there is no bubble, I mean if there is you have to make it, I just think life is more than a series of moments, you know, we can make choices, and we can choose to protect the people we love, and that’s what makes us who we are and those are the real memories.”—Forces of Nature (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“Sometimes you think you’ve gotten over a person, but when you see them smile you suddenly realize you’re just pretending you’re over them to ease the pain of knowing that they will never be yours.”— Unknown (via quote-book)
“At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing, where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, is usually a bullshit. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we’ve chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them, the people that are still with you at the end of the day - those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need.”—Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“Everyone, at some point in their lives, wakes up in the middle of the night with the feeling that they are all alone in the world, and that nobody loves them now and that nobody will ever love them, and that they will never have a decent night’s sleep again and will spend their lives wandering blearily around a loveless landscape, hoping desperately that their circumstances will improve, but suspecting, in their heart of hearts, that they will remain unloved forever. The best thing to do in these circumstances is to wake somebody else up, so that they can feel this way, too.”—Lemony Snicket (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
“In love, no one can harm anyone else; we are each of us responsible for our own feelings and cannot blame someone else for what we feel. It hurt when I lost each of the various men I fell in love with. Now, though, I am convinced that no one loses anyone, because no one owns anyone. That is the true experience of freedom: having the most important thing in the world without owning it.”—Paulo Coelho (via kari-shma) (via quote-book)
On this day, you read something that moved you and made you realise there were no more fears to fear. No tears to cry. No head to hang in shame. That every time you thought you’d offended someone, it was all just in your head and really, they love you with all their heart and nothing will ever change that. That everyone and everything lives on inside you. That that doesn’t make any of it any less real.
That soft touches will change you and stay with you longer than hard ones.
That being alone means you’re free. That old lovers miss you and new lovers want you and the one you’re with is the one you’re meant to be with. That the tingles running down your arms are angel feathers and they whisper in your ear, constantly, if you choose to hear them. That everything you want to happen, will happen, if you decide you want it enough. That every time you think a sad thought, you can think a happy one instead.
That you control that completely.
That the people who make you laugh are more beautiful than beautiful people. That you laugh more than you cry. That crying is good for you. That the people you hate wish you would stop and you do too.
That your friends are reflections of the best parts of you. That you are more than the sum total of the things you know and how you react to them. That dancing is sometimes more important than listening to the music.
That the most embarrassing, awkward moments of your life are only remembered by you and no one else. That no one judges you when you walk into a room and all they really want to know, is if you’re judging them. That what you make and what you do with your time is more important than you’ll ever fathom and should be treated as such. That the difference between a job and art is passion. That neither defines who you are. That talking to strangers is how you make friends.
That bad days end but a smile can go around the world. That life contradicts itself, constantly. That that’s why it’s worth living.
That the difference between pain and love is time. That love is only as real as you want it to be. That if you feel good, you look good but it doesn’t always work the other way around.
That the sun will rise each day and it’s up to you each day if you match it. That nothing matters up until this point. That what you decide now, in this moment, will change the future. Forever. That rain is beautiful.
“I’ve learned that no matter what happens, or how bad it seems today, life does go on, and it will be better tomorrow. I’ve learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights. I’ve learned that regardless of your relationship with your parents, you’ll miss them when they’re gone from your life. I’ve learned that making a “living” is not the same thing as making a “life.” I’ve learned that life sometimes gives you a second chance. I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back. I’ve learned that whenever I decide something with an open heart, I usually make the right decision. I’ve learned that even when I have pains, I don’t have to be one. I’ve learned that every day you should reach out and touch someone. People love a warm hug, or just a friendly pat on the back. I’ve learned that I still have a lot to learn. I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”—Maya Angelou (via julie911) (via quote-book)
“Some people show off their beauty because they want the world to see it.
Others hide their beauty, because they want the world to see something else.”— Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants (via quote-book)
“You can only forgive if they ask for forgiveness. Even tho what you did was wrong, you have to forgive and forget. People have their flaws and lying is a most common and hurtful flaw of all.”—Original, Ryan Lee
“If somebody likes me, I want them to like the real me, not what they think I am. And I don’t want them to carry it around inside. I want them to show me, so I can feel it, too.”—The Perks of Being a Wallflower (via julie911) (via quote-book)
“When someone makes fun of you, don’t get so mad because they’re doing you a favor by keeping you in check so you won’t get conceited or selfish, but some people do it for the hell of it.”—Original, Ryan Lee

“I hate liars, I hate it when people say “I don’t care about what other people think of me,” because they’re lying to themselves. You do care about what other people thinks of you, if you don’t then why would you open up to your friend and maybe start crying or a fight over it? y’knw it matters ALOT. Real talk, stay true to yourself, but do what other people likes you to do, not because your being fake, because you’re being polite. Your reputation is only other people’s perspective about YOU.”—Original, Ryan Lee
