Sometimes you have to test someone. Not because you don't trust them but to see how much they'll sacrifice for you. And sometimes you have to let them go, not because you suddenly stopped loving them, but to see if they love you enough to come back.
This year I learned to accept the fact that layers change, people change, relationship change, so lovoe inevitably changes. Sometimes love changed is love lost, but lessons lie among the residue that are painful to face. But the most important thing, is this year I have loved, ooh I have loved, and I do not regret.
Love isn't always perfect. It isn't a fairy tale or a storybook. And it doesn't always come easy. Love is something obstacles, facing challenges, fighting together, holding on and never letting go. It is a short word, easy to spell, difficult to define and impossible to live without. Love is work, but most of all, love is realizing that every hour, every minute, every second was worth it because you did it together.
No one can promise they'll never hurt you because at one time or another it will happen. The real promise is if the time you spend together will be worth the pain in the end.
It's not about who you've been with, it's about who you end up with. Sometimes, the heart doesn't know what it wants until it finds what it wants.
Every once in a while, people step up. They rise above themselves. Sometimes, they fall short. Life is funny sometimes it can push really hard, but if you look close enough, you find hope in the words of children, in the bars of a song, in the eyes of someone you love...and if you're lucky, and I mean if you're the luckiest person on this entire planet, the person you love, decides to love you back.
When there is something you want: fight for it. Don't give up no matter how hopeless it seems, even when you've lost hope, because years from now you're gonna look back and wish you gave it one more shot. Because the best things don't come easy.
As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't suppose to let you down probably will. You will have your heart broken probably more than once and it's harder every time. You will break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken. You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old love did. You'll cry because time is passing too past, and you'll eventually lose someone you love. So take too many pictures, laugh too much, and love like you've never been hurt. Because every sixty seconds you spent upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back. Don't be afraid that your life will end, be afraid that it will never begin.
When all is said and done, you are apart of me. That's the way it was meant to be. People are brought together for a reason, everything happens for a reason. I believe the reason that you and me were brought together was because we complete each other. We fill-in each other's missing spots with love. And if someday God decides to tear us apart, I trust that there is a reason. Cause if there is a reason for love, there is a reason for life beyond it.
The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time, but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.
What is SEXY? Sexy is standing in the rain as you push someone against the hood of your car tearing their shirt as you kiss them when the intent to never stop. What is CUTE? Cute is young and inexperienced. Cute is holding hands and kissing at the red lights. What is PASSION? Passion is knowing what you want and stopping at nothing until you get it. Passion is putting your heart into what you do. What is BEAUTIFUL? Beautiful is all about the inside of a person. Beauty can only be found in the heart. What is LOVE? Love is the amazing balance of all these things. In your heart, body, and soul.
Don't ever think that you are nothing, because somewhere along the line, there is going to be someone who thinks you're everything.
When people walk away from you, let them go. Your destiny is never tied to someone who leaves you. And it doesn't mean they are bad people, it just means that their part in your story is over.
In love, never put yourself in the situation where you are not sure where you stand in someone's life. Never expect, never assume. So that if they choose to drop you, you have enough strength to move on.
You can close your eyes to the things you do not want to see, but you cannot close your heart to the things yo do not want to feel.
I'm not waiting for the one who makes me take a second look, but for the one who makes me never want to look away in the first place.
This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends--they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything--they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll goo and goo too. And babe, I hate to say it, most of them--actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can't give up because if you give up, you'll never find your soul mate. 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, because if you don't, then who will, sweetie? So keep you 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.
I love those kind of nights that turn out unexpectedly good, great, and sometimes just all out amazing just because you didn't really expect anything to happen at all. I only we could live just like that--with no expectations in mind. It's possible we'd be much happier, with more memorable moments that would last us a lifetime.
In the end, it's still best to wait for the one we want rather than to settle for what's available. It's still best to wait for the one you love rather than to settle for the one who's around. It's still best to wait for the right person, because life's too short to waste on the wrong one.
It may seem like the hardest thing to do, but you have to forget about the person who forgot about you.
The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch swing with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you ever had.
