You are a world full of sorrow, joy, and greatness.
You are the calm, the rage, and the aftermath of the storm.
You are more than drunken kisses with no promises.
You are the kiss of commitment on the marriage day.
You are prone to make mistakes, but you are also able to find grace.
You are so much more, and I would hate it if someone broke your heart so much that you forgot that.

If you’re reading this, if there’s air in your lungs on this November day, then there is still hope for you. Your story is still going. And maybe some things are true for all of us. Perhaps we all relate to pain. Perhaps we all relate to fear and loss and questions. And perhaps we all deserve to be honest, all deserve whatever help we need. Our stories are all so many things: Heavy and light. Beautiful and difficult. Hopeful and uncertain. But our stories aren’t finished yet. There is still time, for things to heal and change and grow. There is still time to be surprised. We are still going, you and I. We are stories still going.

Turn turn away From the sound of your own voice 
Calling no one,
just a silence 
Run to see you at the edge 
Fall off the avalanche 

Turn away 
Hold hold the light 
That fixes you in time 
Keeps you under 
Takes you over 
The wall that love divides, between waking and slumber 

Turn away 
Turn turn away 
From the weight of your own past 
It's magic for the devil 
And betray the lack of change 
Once you have spoken 
Turn away

“It’s not strength, it’s PERCEPTION that makes you stronger. If you change how you SEE it, you’ll change how you FEEL about it.”

“Try to be happy within the context of the life we are actually living. Happiness is not a situation to be longed for or a convergence of lucky happenstance. Through the power of our own minds, we can help ourselves.”
