1. It is not the fear of moving on that scares me. It is the fear of never going back. They never told us just how much it would cost to choose in life. They never told us that even though you can move on from certain things, it may in turn cost you your heart. These decisions we face may turn us into either saints or monsters, but it has to be worth more than becoming nothing at all.

2. We are the silver lining in any and every dark cloud we could ever find. There is no need to go looking for the light when you bring it with you.

Sylvia Plath

3. Just when we think we figured things out, the universe throws us a curveball. So, we have to improvise. We find happiness in unexpected places. We find ourselves back to the things that matter the most. The universe is funny that way. Sometimes, it just has a way of making sure we wind up exactly where we belong.

4. I have a fire in my fingers and I want to believe in this, in me, in you and the way your eyes burn when you look at me and remember why the world spins and atoms collide because of fate.i can read

 

5. Because in spite of everything, I still believe that people are really good at heart.

6. He found her most beautiful, not when she was all fancied up but when she wasn’t. When she was lying on the carpet, her hair all a mess, laughing about something that had happens years ago. When she wasn’t trying to impress anyone, and taken down the wall she built for most people. That’s when he couldn’t take his eyes off of her.

It's the small things.

7. She wasn’t bitter. She was sad, though. But it was a hopeful kind of sad. The kind of sad that just takes time.

the right man will love all the things about you that the wrong man was intimidated by.

8. Take a look at yourself in a mirror. Who do you see looking back? Is it the person you want it to be? Or is there someone you were meant to be the person you were meant to be but fell short of? Is someone telling you you can’t or won’t? Because you can. Believe that love is out there. Sometimes happiness doesn’t come from money or fame or power. Sometimes happiness comes from good friends and family and the quiet nobility of leading a good life. So take a look at that mirror and remind yourself to be happy because you deserve to be. Believe that. And believe that dreams come true every day. Because they do.

If it doesn't, why bother?

9. Now is the time for us to shine. The time when our dreams are within reach and possibilities are vast. Now is the time for all of us to become the people we have always dreamed of being. This is your world. You’re here. You matter. The world is waiting.

 

10. What’s more important? What we become or how we become it?

11. Love who your heart wants, not what your eyes want.

You have within you, right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you. -Brian Tracy by deeplifequotes, via Flickr

12. It’s not about perfect. It’s about living your life and doing the best you can.

#quote wordstoliveby

13. It’s the oldest story in the world. One day, you’re 17 and planning for someday. And then,quietly and without you ever really noticing, someday is today. And then someday is yesterday. And this is your life. We spend so much time wanting, pursuing, wishing. But ambition is good. Chasing things with integrity is good. Dreaming… If you had a friend you knew you’d never see again, what would you say? If you could do one last thing for someone you love, what would it be? Say it, do it, don’t wait. Nothing lasts forever. Make a wish and place it in your heart. Anything you want. Everything you want. Do you have it? Good. Now believe it can come true. You never know where the next miracle’s gonna come from. The next memory. The next smile. The next wish come true. But if you believe that it’s right around the corner. And you open your heart and mind to the possibility of it, to the certainty of it- you might just get the thing you’re wishing for.The world is full of magic. You just have to believe in it. So make a wish. Do you have it? Good, now believe in it. With all your heart.

I need to remember this! "Stop letting people who do so little for you control so much of your mind, feelings, emotions.

14. Plus, wouldn’t you rather take a chance than always wonder what could’ve been?

#TaylorSwift Regret #Quote

15. Have you ever looked at a picture of yourself and see a stranger in the background? It makes you wonder how many strangers have pictures of you. How many moments of other people’s lives have we been in? Were we a part of someone’s life, or when their dream came true, or where we there when their dreams died? Did we keep trying to get in, as if we were somehow just destined to be there? Or did the shot take us by surprise? Just think. You could be a big part of someone else’s life and not even know it.namaste |

 

16. Sometimes, when you’re young, you think nothing can hurt you. It’s like being invincible. Your whole life is ahead of you and you have big plans: to find the perfect match, the one who completes you. But as you get older, you realize it’s not always that easy. It’s not until the end of your life that you realize how the plans you made were simply plans. Because at the end when you’re looking back instead of looking forward, you want to believe you made the most of what life gave you. You want to believe you’re leaving something behind. You want it all to have mattered.

17. It’s hard when you miss people. But, you know, if you miss them, it means you were lucky. It means you had someone special in your life, someone worth missing.

 

18. I thought I knew you. But I guess it’s easier to see what we want than to look for the truth.

19. I want a marriage where we’re both constantly uplifting each other and encouraging each other. A marriage where we’re constantly being silly and making jokes. I want something that constantly pushes us to be the best people we can be and to teach us to never let go when things get hard. I don’t know, maybe that’s just a fairy tale. Maybe it’ll never happen. But sometimes, having faith in what you want is not the end of the world. Maybe it’s just us, holding on to the rope and hoping that we don’t fall that keeps us hoping and dreaming for the things we never thought were possible.

.

20. But it never seemed like you missed me. And I guess because of it, I stopped missing you.

But I know the heart of life is good.

I don’t wanna be another chore to check off of your list, of things you gotta do and places that you gotta go

{one.}

Every time you look at the stars, it’s like opening a door. You could be anyone, anywhere. You could be yourself at any moment in your life. You open that door and you realize you’re the same person under the same stars. Camping out in the backyard with your best friend, eleven years old, sixteen, driving alone, stopping at the edge of the city, looking up at the same stars. Walking a wooden path, riding a rowboat, staring out the back window of a car, you’re eleven again. Out here where the world begins and ends, it’s like nothing ever stops happening.

One day, you will learn how to give and receive love like an open window and it will feel like summer every day.

The Lord said, you may have someone in your mind. Someone in your heart. Someone in your dreams. Someone in your life. But, I am someone when you have NO ONE.

Every person you meet, every single one, is looking for their story. There’s no exceptions. You become part of it by how you treat them.

some guys need to learn from this scene. lol

Put on some clothes. You want a man to give you the time of the day, leave a little up to the imagination, and respect yourself. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and the beholder is anyone you want it to be.

Butterflies can’t see their wings. They can’t see how truly beautiful they are, but everyone else can. People are like that too.

Some of the most beautiful words in the entire world have already been used thousands of times, but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. So too with people.

Being in love is a good thing, but it’s not the best thing. There are many things below it, but there are also things above it. You cannot make it the basis of a whole life. It is a noble feeling, but it is still a feeling. Now, no feeling can be relied on to last in its full intensity, or even to last at all. Knowledge can last, principles can last, habits can last; but feelings come and go. And in fact, whatever people say, the state called “being in love” usually does not last. If the old fairytale ending “they lived happily ever after” is taken to mean “they felt for the next fifty years exactly as they felt the day before they were married,” then it says what probably never was nor ever could be true, and would be highly undesirable if it were. Who could bear to live in that excitement for even five years? What would become of your work, your appetite, your sleep, your friendships? But, of course, ceasing to be “in love” need not mean ceasing to love. Love in this second sense- love as distinct from “being in love”- is not merely a feeling. It is a deep unity, maintained by the will and deliberately strengthened by habit; reinforced by the grace in which partners ask, and receive, from God. They can have this love for each other even at these moments when they do not like each other; as you love yourself even when you do not like yourself. They can retain this love even when each would easily, if they allowed themselves be “in love” with someone else. “Being in love” first moved them to promise fidelity; this quieter love enables them to keep the promise. It is on this love that the engine of marriage is run: being in love was the explosion that started it.

Be a hill seeker. Most of us try to avoid hills, but what’s so good about flat? Think about it: flat tires, flat hair, flat returns and- the ultimate- flatlining. Life happens on the hills. They’re opportunities to prove to yourself that you’re stronger than you’ve ever imagined. If you’ve never attempted the ascent, you’ll never know the thrill of swooshing down to the other side.

Have you ever thought that if one thing hadn’t happened, a whole set of things never would have either? Like dominoes in time, a single event kicked off an unstoppable changes that gained momentum and spun out of control and nothing was ever the same again. Don’t ever doubt that a mere second can change your life forever.

The steam of our exhalations is combining in the dark sky above us. It looks like a ghost watching us, the ghost of all things we have fought our way through. Maybe that’s what our sighs are, the collective spirit of the people we were running out of our bodies to make way for the people we are becoming now. Only in the cold we can see it, only in cold does it finally take shape and hover above us. Who we were is floating away.

Sometimes, I think of the sun and moon as lovers who rarely meet, always chase, and almost always miss one another. But once in awhile, they do catch up, and they kiss, and the whole world stares in awe of their eclipse. true

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.

1. You only lose what you cling to.

2. I used to think I was the strangest person in the world, but then I thought there are so many people in the world, there must be someone just like me who feels bizarre and flawed in the same ways I do. I would imagine him and imagine that he must be out there, thinking of me too.

“It's just that I don't want to be somebody's crush. 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.” ― Stephen Chbosky, The Perks of Being a Wallflower  - Witty Profiles Quote 6380964 http://wittyprofiles.com/q/6380964

3. True love will triumph in the end- which may or may not be a lie, but if it is a lie then it’s the most beautiful lie we have.

truth

4. Who are you, really? You are not a name, or a height, or a weight, or a gender. You are not an age and you are not where you are from. You are your favorite books, and the songs stuck in your head. You are your thoughts and what you eat for breakfast on Saturday mornings. You are a thousand things but everyone chooses to see the million things you are not. You are not where you are from, you are where you are going, and I’d like to go there too.

I love those randam memories that make me smile no matter what is going on in my life right now.5. I find the whole concept of being “sexy” embarrassing and confusing. I know everyone wants a picture of me in a mini-skirt. But that’s not me. I feel uncomfortable. I’d never go out in a mini-skit. Personally, I don’t even think it’s that sexy. What’s sexy about saying “I’m here with my boobs out and a short skirt, have a look at everything I’ve got?” My idea of sexy is that less is more. The less you reveal, the more people can wonder.

6. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about taking chances, and how it’s really just about overcoming your fears. Because the truth is, every time you take a big risk in your life, no matter how it ends up, you are always glad you took it.

Keep running people!!!

7. Never apologize for having high standards. People who really want to be in your life will rise up to meet them.

8. Beauty isn’t all about having a pretty face. It’s about having a pretty mind a pretty heart and a pretty soul.

The rules for being amazing.

9. And now that you don’t have to be perfect, you can be good.

10. I’ve learned that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do is be someone who can be loved. The rest is up to them. I’ve learned that no matter how much I care, some people just don’t care back. And it’s not the end of the world.

11. For a moment there,  I saw an ounce of promise in you. But you weren’t strong enough to follow through on that. I just hope, for your sake, that you one day find it again; that you manage to brush away the rubble in your head and find a way to love and be loved. It’s something that you’ve been without far too long.

Just remember : Someone loves everything you hate about yourself

12. It’s the oldest story in the world. One day, you’re seventeen and planning for someday, and then quietly, without you ever really noticing, someday is today, and someday is yesterday and this is your life.

13. She said, “I wasn’t looking for you- I wasn’t looking for anyone, but one smile changed all that.” One smile, one look, and I was lost. I still am. I tried hard not to love you- not to want you, but that smile and what I saw yin your eyes, changed everything. Even after all this time, that smile still changes everything.

 

14. I think loving someone despite what other people think, is fearless.

Can't-eat, can't-sleep...reach for the stars, over the fence, world series kind of stuff...AHH.. It Takes Two..had that entire movie memorized as a child..and apparently still do. lol.

15. Love isn’t practical. It isn’t meant to be easy. It doesn’t appear on command. It doesn’t let you fall for whomever you’d like. It surfaces neither at the most opportune moment nor in the most convenient. It’ll pair you with someone you might never have expected. It’ll put you face to face with endless obstacles. But in the end, none of that will matter because it’s how you overcome its obstacles that will define your love. It may not be practical, but love is ultimately the best thing that will ever happen to you.

happiness

15.  What if all we have ever wanted isn’t hiding in some secret and far away dream, but inside of us now as we breathe one another and find home in the way our arms always seem to fit perfectly around the spaces between us?What if we are the answer and love was the question? What if all this time, it was us you were supposed to find? I am filled with wonderings, questions, and doubt, but of one thing I am certain: it will always be you that gives flight to the butterflies inside me, calm to the sea I have become and hope to the darkness all around us. It is you and it has always been you… you. You that soothes and excites and spreads joy like rainfall on the already damp earth. If life is a question mark, then you are the proud and bold period that is typed with certainty.

Too beautiful.

16. Every person you meet, every single one, is looking for their story. There are no exceptions. You became part of it by how you treat them.

Still learning.

17. This life is what you make it. No matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth…you can’t give p because if you give up, you’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying. Hold on. And always, always, always, believe in yourself, be causes if you don’t then who will? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing, and there’s so much to smile about.

18. We accept the love we think we deserve.

One.

If I knew where I was going next, I wouldn’t be taking so many naps, or reading all these books, trying to divine my future in pillow cases and stitched book bindings, lost in small decisions of each day, only a little bit numb. I am the inevitable wanderer. The girl who always says goodbye, but never knows how to leave.

forever changed.

Two.

Life isn’t about keeping score. It’s not about how many people call you and it’s not about who you’ve dated, are dating, or haven’t dated at all. It isn’t about who you’ve kissed, what sport you play, or which girl or guy likes you. It’s not about your shoes or your hair or the color of your skin or where you live or where you go to school. In fact, it’s not about grades, money, clothes, or colleges that accept you. Life isn’t about if you have lots of friends, or if you are alone, and it’s not about how accepted or unaccepted you are. Life just isn’t about that. But life is about who you love and who you hurt. It’s about how you feel about yourself. It’s about trust, happiness and compassion. It’s about sticking up for your friends and replacing inner hate with love. Life is about avoiding jealously, overcoming ignorance, and building confidence. It’s about what you say and what you mean. It’s about seeing people for who they are and not what they have. Most of all, it’s about choosing to use your life to touch someone else’s in a way that I could never been achieved otherwise.

May the voices that cheer you on ...

She rolled over, buried half her face in her pillow, and smiled slightly. It was then, the overwhelming realization washed over me that there is so much more to life than simply surviving it.

It is you and it has always been you...

Four.

Everyone has an angel. A guardian who watches over us. We can’t know what form they’ll take. One day, old man. Next day, little girl. But don’t let appearances fool you, they can be as fierce as any dragon. Yet, they’re not here to fight our battles, but to whisper from our heart. Reminding that it’s us. It’s every one of us who holds power over the worlds we create. We can deny our angels exist, convince ourselves they can’t be real. But they show up anyway, at strange places and at strange times. They can speak through any character we can imagine. They’ll shout through demons if they have to. Daring us, challenging us to fight.

"Things I love..."

Five.

If you love someone, you tell them. Even if you’re scared that it’s not the right thing.. Even if you;’re scared that it’ll cause problems. Even if you’re scared that it will burn your life to the ground, you say it, and you say it loud, and you go from there.

me too.

Sometimes, the bad things that happen in our lives put us directly on the path to the best things that will ever happen to us.

Never be afraid to fall apart, because it is an opportunity to rebuild yourself the way you wish you had been all along.

Eight.

You see, life is like a mirror. Who you are is reflected by those around you.

Sometimes the only way to catch your breath is to lose it completely.

Never be afraid...

Ten.

When we fail and screw up, guess what? we fall into an ocean of grace. But that grace is so good, it not only forgives us, but frees us from our struggles.

Eleven.

You have to get hurt. That’s how you learn. The strongest people out there- the ones who laugh the hardest with the genuine smile, those are the ones who have fought the hardest battles. Because they have decided that they’re not going to let anything hold them down. They’re showing the world who’s boss.

Look for a man who has placed his heart in the hands of God. His expectations, job, successes, and past no longer define him because he has found his true purpose in the eyes of the King.

Thirteen.

They say that falling in love is a scary thing. I don’t think that falling in love is scary. I think that we’re more scared of letting ourselves go. We’re scared of letting those parts of us go that we never thought would find its way from the depths of the darkness and into the light. Maybe, we’re just scared of letting people see who we really are.

I don't even care about pictures of me. I want pictures like these!

“What” and “if” are two words as non threatening as words can be. But put them together side-by-side, and they have the power to haunt you for the rest of your life. What if? What if? What if? I don’t know how your story ended, but if what you felt is true love, then it’s never too late. If it was true then, why wouldn’t it be true now? You need only the courage to follow your heart. I don’t even know what a love like Juliet’s feels like- love to leave loved ones for, love to cross oceans for, but I’d like to believe if I ever were to feel it, that I would have the courage to seize it.

To make the right choices in life, you have to get in touch with your soul. To do this, you need to experience solitude, which most people are afraid of, because in the silence, you hear the truth and know the solutions.

Being single doesn’t mean you don’t know anything about love. It just means that you know enough to wait for it.

You have to remember that fear is not real. It is a product of the thoughts you create. Don’t misunderstand me. Danger is very real, but fear is a choice.

Your past is just a Story. And once you realize this, it has no power over you.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving much advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a gentle and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of despair or confusion. Who can stay with us in an hour or confusion , who can stay with us an an hour of grief and bereavement, who can tolerate not knowing, not curing, not healing, and face with us the reality of our powerlessness, that is a friend who cares.I need to remember this more often..I need to remember this more often..
