“It’s amazing the things you realize when you lose someone. You get mad at yourself for not saying the things you could have said a million times. You take for granted the days you spent doing nothing when you could have been with them. Anyone can be taken, at any point in our lives, but we always wait until they’re gone to say the things we never had the courage to say before.”—Melody Carlson, Finding Out Who You Really Are (via selfinspiration)
“When I was a kid, I thought I had my life figured out. I knew where I was going. I was sure of whom I was and what I was. I was wrong. See, life is a journey of twist and turns that mold who we are; however, it is not the twist and turns which mold us, but rather, how we take and handle the twist and turns thrown at us. It was not until life threw me flat on my face that I truly discovered who I am and what I am. I am a perpetual work-in-progress. And you know what? I am quite alright with that.”—Cristina Marrer (via selfinspiration)
“It happens to everyone as they grow up. You find out who you are and what you want, and then you realize that people you’ve known forever don’t see things the way you do. So you keep the wonderful memories, but find yourself moving on.”—Nicholas Sparks (via selfinspiration)
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% of what you make of it. If you want to stay angry, depressed, or constantly negative. Fine. But just stay away from me. I'm not taking any chances, I'm choosing to stay happy and if you aren't, then that's on you.
