i didn’t write it…but i hope to embrace it.

  • Maybe…we were supposed to meet the wrong people before meeting the right one so that, when we finally meet the right person, we will know how to be grateful for that gift.
  • Maybe…when the door of happiness closes, another opens; but, oftentimes, we look so long at the closed door that we don’t even see the new one which has been opened for us.
  • Maybe…it is true that we don’t know what we have until we lose it, but it is also true that we don’t know what we have been missing until it arrives.
  • Maybe…the happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything; they just make the most of everything that comes along their way.
  • Maybe…the brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past; after all, you can’t go on successfully in life until you let go of your past mistakes, failures and heartaches.
  • Maybe…you should dream what you want to dream, go where you want to go, be what you want to be, because you have only one life and one chance to do all the things you dream of and want to do.
  • Maybe…there are moments in life when you miss someone — a parent, a spouse, a friend, a child — so much that you just want to pick them from your dreams and hug them for real, so that once they are around you appreciate them more.
  • Maybe…the best kind of friend is the kind you can sit on a porch and swing with, never say a word, and then walk away feeling like it was the best conversation you’ve ever had.
  • Maybe…you should always try to put yourself in others’ shoes. If you feel that something could hurt you, it probably will hurt the other person, too.
  • Maybe…you should do something nice for someone every single day, even if it is simply to leave them alone.
  • Maybe…giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they will love you back. Don’t expect love in return; just wait for it to grow in their heart; but, if it doesn’t, be content that it grew in yours.
  • Maybe…happiness waits for all those who cry, all those who hurt, all those who have searched, and all those who have tried, for only they can appreciate the importance of all the people who have touched their lives.
  • Maybe…you shouldn’t go for looks, because they can deceive, or for wealth, because even that fades away. Go for someone who makes you smile, because it takes only a smile to make a dark day seem bright. Find the one that makes your heart smile.
  • Maybe…you should hope for enough happiness to make you sweet, enough trials to make you strong, enough sorrow to keep you human, and enough hope to make you happy.

    One of the ways I feel I’ve grown the most over the past year is allowing myself to do what I want to do. Not because someone told me to do it or not do it, not because it is expected or will supposedly make me feel better, but because I simply want to and because I think it’ll make me happier or at least a better person. And while it’s resulted in mistakes (*cough*denver*cough*) I feel like it’s all been for the best.

    The one about the forgotten past reminds me of something James is constantly telling me, to stop freaking out about the future. Sometimes I’ll have spazz attacks about something and I’ll look at him and be like “WHY AREN’T YOU SPAZZING THIS COULD VERY WELL HAPPEN” and he will give me this laidback smile and say “it could. but it hasn’t happened yet. let the future come when it comes, take the day for what it is and work with that for now.”

    also, why am I awake.

    also, I need to blog.

    the end.
