"After a while you learn the subtle difference Between holding a hand and chaining a soul, And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning And company doesn’t mean security. And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts And presents aren’t promises, And you begin to accept your defeats With your head up and your eyes open With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child, And you learn to build all your roads on today Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight. After a while you learn… That even sunshine burns if you get too much. So you plant your garden and decorate your own soul, Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers. And you learn that you really can endure… That you really are strong And you really do have worth… And you learn and learn… With every good-bye you learn. "
Jorge Luis Borges
"life is a blank canvas and the paintbrush is in your hands; some paint what they've already seen, some choose not to paint, and some paint the picture their imagination speaks to them."
"once you realize that dwelling on the negative emotions
and the heartbreak and all the imperfections of life,
does nothing to change them,
you can begin to move on."
I will be out of town this week. I'm going to Salt Lake City, Utah with the sweet boyfriend of mine through this Tuesday the 14th. Have a blessed week everyone!!!
