hold fast to love

no one can guarantee that love will be perfect.
it is flawed, difficult, and frustrating;
but at the same time it is breath taking,
beautiful, and irreplaceable.

love, in its many forms, is why we are all here.
isn't it?
i think what everyone wants most is for somebody to
want them back, be it a friend, a soulmate, or a family member.

so let's hold onto the love we have, for
it's the most precious thing there is.

wouldn't it be nice to get away from it all?
to fall into a rabbit hole and get lost in a
new fantasy world?

if only things were that easy.
in this world, full of chaos and confusion,
people are constantly trying to make sense of it all.

well, let's be different and just accept it.
life is absurd, and things don't make sense.
we don't have to know everything right now;
we don't even have to know where we want to go.

let's just take everything one step at a time.
come what may.

wants + needs

please do not give me what i want,
for choices are too hard.
what we want is never what we need.

"save me from being confused.
show me what i'm looking for."

in the moment

life is too short to live by the standards of others.
we are constantly taught to observe the
individual vs. society relationships in literature,
but what about in our own lives?

let's be the individuals; let's be who we are.
do something no one would think you would do.
it's better to keep people guessing than to be predictable.

here's to living it up.
carpe diem, my friends.

it's okay to feel disappointed,
or even feel that you are a disappointment.
this feeling merely indicates that
you know there is something more,
or that you are something more

do as the dreamers do

"You may say I'm a dreamer,

but I'm not the only one,

I hope someday you will join us,

and the world will live as one."

-John Lennon

the world is at our fingertips;

we are the only ones

who can change our reality.

so never let anyone tell you

to stop dreaming, to get out of the clouds

and to come back to Earth.

dreams spark innovation, change, progress.

the dreamers can make a difference,

because they know that nothing is impossible.

together, we can imagine a better place and

help shape our reality into something good,

something worthwhile.

we are the world.
