There comes a point when you're more important than your past.
The best thing that you can do in life is follow your heart. Take risks. Don't just take the safe and easy choices because your afraid of what might happen. Don't have any regrets and know that everything happens for a reason.
Sometimes in life... pain becomes such a huge part of your life that you expect it to always be there, because you can't remember a time in your life when it wasn't. But then one day you feel something else. Something that feels wrong only because its so unfamiliar, and in that moment you realize you're happy. :-)
Someday, someone will walk into your life and make you realize why it never worked out with anyone else.
I cannot predict the future, I cannot change the past, I have just this moment... I will live it like my last.
... and we put a fake smile to hide the pain, yet we wish someone would look closely enough and see how broken we really are inside.
I found a new source...
You folks are going to catch a heavy dose today!
Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the one's who don't. Believe things happen for a reason. If you get a second chance, grab it with both hands. If it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would be worth it.
I may be BENT, but not BROKEN, everything happens for a REASON. Because if GOD brings you to it, HE will bring you through it.
I've been walked on, used and forgotten and I don't regret one moment of it because in those moments, I've learned a lot. I've learned who I can trust and can't. I've learned the meaning of friendship. I've learned how to tell when people are lying and when they're sincere. I've learned how to be a teenager, and how to grow up when I need to. I've been to hell and back a few times, and I won't ever take what I have for granted. This is life, live it one day at a time. You never know how many days you've got left.
A hug is like a boomerang - you get it back right away.
