Life is like a book,
you don't just stay & look back at what happened in the past,
you don't look to the end & see if its worth it,
you just keep on turing the pages of life's book.
The best things in life..
Accidentally over hearing someone say something nice about you.
Waking up & realizing you still have a few hours left to sleep.
First kisses, making new friends & spending time with the old ones,
sweet dreams, making brownies & cookies.
Holding hands with someone you care about, watching a sunset,
sleeping in, taking long hot showers, & knowing that somebody misses you.
When I was 5 years old.
My mom always told me that happiness was the key to life.
When I went to school...
they asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up.
I wrote down happy.
They told me I didnít understand the assignment.
& I told them they didnít understand life.
Eventually all the pieces fall into place.
Until then, laugh at the confusion.
Live for the moment & know that everything happens for a reason.
I guess the real fact of the matter is.
We donít know what tomorrow is going to bring.
& the only thing we really have is right now.
So, donít stay mad for too long.
Learn to forgive, love with all your heart.
Stay up all night, have fun. Live your life the way you want to live it.
Donít worry about people that donít like you.
Enjoy the ones who do.
Itís time to move on with my life.
Iíve got to stop reading the same page.
& continue turning the pages.
The memories are still locked in my mind.
But theyíre whatís stopping me from living my life.
There will be two dates on your tombstone.
Everyone will read them.
But the only thing that matters is the tiny dash in between.
All you can do in life is try to solve the problem in front of you.
Promise yourself to be strong,
that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
Look at the sunny side of everything.
& make your optimism come true.
Think only the best, work only for the best, & expect only the best.
Forget the mistakes of the past.
& press on to the greater achievements of the future.
Give so much time to the improvement of yourself.
That you have no time to criticize others.
Live in the faith that the whole world is on your side.
As long as you are true to the best that's in you.
Don't ever let life put you down.
Just know that you will always be you.
At some point you'll change.
But life isn't going to do that for you.
You're gonna have to seek & find out how that works.
But just don't let anyone stop you from doing what you need to do.
Imagine settling for a life you can have.
Because you don't have the courage,
to go after the life you really want.
You have to make a decision, the kind that bends your future in a whole new direction.
When I was little I had this idea that life could be perfect.
That if you were careful enough you'd never make a mistake.
Never be lonely, never be misunderstood, never be frightened.
But it doesn't work that way. Life is big & messy.
You just have to climb in it with your boots on & hope for the best.
What we get out of life is what we've set ourselves up to get.
So there's no such thing as inconsequential decision.
Our destinies are the culmination of all the
choices we've made along the way.
Which is why it's so imperative to listen hard
to your inner voice when it speaks up.
Don't let anyone else's noise drown it out.
