I wasn't afraid of falling.
For once in my life.
I guess I trusted the ground beneath me.
It's those priceless, unexplainable moments that matter most.
Even if we don't understand why they happen.
The key is to find something you have a passion for.
Something you can live for every day of your life, & stay with it.
To fulfill yourself, you must fulfill your purpose.
People are like stained glass windows.
They sparkle & shine when the sun is out.
But when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within.
How people treat you is their karma, but how you react is yours.
We live the life of an unfinished novel still waiting to be written.
Depending on how long we live, the longer the chapters.
Depending on how interesting we are, the more we appeal to others.
We're often judged by our covers.
Sometimes, some people decide to just quit reading us.
We're just forgotten until someone finds us.
Our characters can develop throughout the novel, but our chapters can never be edited.
Words are like bullets & they kill as good as any gun.
Hope is a driving factor in helping us stay on course in life.
It may feel as though it comes & goes.
But in reality there's always hope.
There's always a chance for something else to happen.
& you need to have faith that it will.
There are a lot of obstacles in life.
You can try to walk around them, pretend they're not there, & pretend not to care, but in the end the only person that you would be fooling is yourself.
It's finally come to the point in our lives,
the part where new experiences are about to arrive.
Whether it be for the better or for the worst,
things will surely change.
& as we say goodbye to our childhood years,
we set forth to a whole new & different journey.
We're finally starting to grow up.
& it's amazing to think about where you'll be in the near future
& what life will bring you.
You can never prepare for the moment that changes your life.
I never asked for it to be over.
Then again, I never asked for it to begin.
That's the way it is with life.
Some of the most beautiful days come completely by chance.
But even the most beautiful days have their sunsets.
Never look down on someone unless you're helping them up.
Learn to appreciate what you have before time forces you to appreciate what you had.
The fact that you cannot kiss your elbow.
Is enough to make you realize that some things seem to be so close, yet they're bound to be beyond your reach.
We don't like what we don't understand. In fact, it scares us.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.
Because it's only when you're tested,
that you truly discover who you are.
& it's only when you're tested that you discover who you can be.
The person that you want to be does exist.
Life is the ability to feel so happy you think
your insides are going to explode.
It's being so upset or disappointed
you feel as if your stomach just dropped ten feet out of place.
It's running so hard you can barely breathe.
It's the feeling of panic when
you know you've been caught doing something wrong.
It's having that sudden rush before
you kiss someone you care about.
It's opening your eyes & feeling them sting because
you spent the whole night crying.
It's letting people go because new ones come in.
& all the while, realizing that life doesn't have a purpose unless you let it.
I'd rather live my life to the absolute fullest rather than conduct myself in a certain way to gain approval from others.
Smile like you don't give a damn about the consequences.
