I learned that nothing is by accident or coincidence. I do believe that I was meant to walk into the bar downstairs from my apartment that night.
Friendships don’t always last forever even if you thought they would.
I hope you have found your happiness. I hope each day you wake up in awe of your life, and every night, you sleep with gratitude in your heart.
I think I’m starting to understand the benefits of heartbreak. It humbles you. It makes you realize that no matter who you are and what you do, you’re still not for everyone and not everyone will admire you the way you think they will.
Being alone is actually the best thing that anyone could ask for.
Having your dog jump at you after a long time apart.
The only thing that will matter in the end is whether we used our pain to give back to the world or simply take from it. The only thing that will leave us fulfilled will be whether we tried to be the best possible versions of ourselves.
We must release our hold of yesterday’s concerns and bring our awareness to the present moment, if we desire to seek contentment.
So you better start choosing.
Smile. Not because your life is perfect and everything is together and all your pain is healed, but because you are alive, and that is enough.
