NEW YOU

Burying something is quite backbreaking, but if we wanted to change ourselves to a new “me”, then let’s claim the certainty.

I appreciate the bad and the good events in my life. I appreciate the people around me; my family, friends, workmates, and strangers. I appreciate what I had and couldn’t have.

Thank you, Lord, for everything! The last year was challenging but full of blessings.

Happy New Year everyone!!

TO LOVE IS TO BE VULNERABLE

To love at all is to be vulnerable.

Love anything, and your heart will certainly be wrong and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact, you must give your heart to no one, not even to an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements; lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness.

But in that casket-safe, dark, motionless, airless–it will not change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, and irredeemable.

RESCUE YOURSELF

“It has always been simple, but making it hard was always your way of avoiding pain. If you want to change your life, you have to change what you are doing. It wasn’t his fault, her fault, their fault or the circumstances. It was your inability to choose.

Somewhere in that crazy mind of yours, time stopped. You thought someone would rescue you, but they didn’t. You have to rescue yourself. This is not a fire you can put out; you have to walk through it, in order to reach life. Getting burned is apart of growth, didn’t you know?”

OUTSIDE THE LINES

Do not be afraid to color outside the lines. Take risks and do not be afraid to fail. Know that when the world knocks you down, the best revenge is to get up and continue forging ahead. Do not be afraid to be different or to stand up for what’s right. Never quiet your voice to make someone else feel comfortable. No one remembers the person that fits in. It’s the one who stands out that people will not be able to forget.

IT FEELS GOOD

“It’s like one of those scenes from a feel-good Hollywood movie. Where everybody is happy and nobody’s hair fizzes in the wind. Where it doesn’t rain, your shoes stay comfortable all day, and everybody’s jokes are funny and turning the page is the best feelings in the world. Ahhh it feels so good.”

BEAUTY and MADNESS

“I learned that love can end in one night, that great friends can become great strangers, that strangers can become best friends, that we never finish to know and understand someone completely, that the “never ever again” will happen again and that “forever” always ends, that the one that wants it can, will achieve it and get it, that the one that risks it never loses anything.

Cheers to the beauty and madness of life!

HUMBLE and KIND

A kind reminder for all of us.

Who forgot where we came from. When we stop to be a little. When proudness gets into our head. When recognizing our self-became a priority than how we treat the others. When we no longer accept corrections. When we cannot give up our mountains of pride.

When we forgot to be humble and kind.

You know there’s a light that glows by the front door
Don’t forget the key’s under the mat
When childhood stars shine,
Always stay humble and kind

Go to church ’cause your mamma says to
Visit grandpa every chance that you can
It won’t be wasted time
Always stay humble and kind

Hold the door, say “please”, say “thank you”
Don’t steal, don’t cheat, and don’t lie
I know you got mountains to climb
But always stay humble and kind

When the dreams you’re dreamin’ come to you
When the work you put in is realized
Let yourself feel the pride
But always stay humble and kind

Don’t expect a free ride from no one
Don’t hold a grudge or a chip and here’s why:
Bitterness keeps you from flyin’
Always stay humble and kind

Know the difference between sleeping with someone
And sleeping with someone you love
“I love you” ain’t no pick-up line
So always stay humble and kind

When it’s hot, eat a root beer popsicle
Shut off the AC and roll the windows down
Let that summer sunshine
Always stay humble and kind

Don’t take for granted the love this life gives you
When you get where you’re going don’t forget turn back around
And help the next one in line
Always stay humble and kind

-Tim Mcgraw-

ODE TO BEER

You’re sparkly and light like a soda pop
But you fill my head with a fuzz
When I drink you, I never want to stop
I just want to keep building my buzz.

And at times, I cheat on you with whiskey
Sometimes vodka, tequila, or rum
But I know when I’m gone that you miss me
And I’m sorry for being so dumb.

You’re perfect for burgers or pizza
And sometimes, you’re great on your own
But when I drink, I usually don’t eat much
I’d rather get full on the foam.

Dear Beer, you are such an old, dear friend
I’ve known you and loved you so long
You’re always there for me to depend
Thank you sweet beer, and my bong.

ALL BY YOURSELF

“And I realized that some things just don’t work that way. Life isn’t a fairy tale. And the person you fall in love with doesn’t always love you back. But that’s ok because at the very least it makes you stronger and brings you to a place where you can fall in love with yourself.

And that to me is more important than finding someone that only makes you complete when they are around, it’s really about finding the person that will teach you ALL the lessons you need to know so that you feel complete all by yourself. ”
