"We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy; when we get that car or that job or that person in our lives that’ll fix everything. But happiness is a mood and it’s a condition, not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry; it’s not permanent. It comes and goes but that’s okay. And i feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often." - Julian, One Tree Hill

When one door closes...

“When one door closes another opens;
but we so often look so long and regretfully
upon the closed door,
that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

–Helen Keller

Turning stones

Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves. -James Barrie

Like mother like daughter

“My own someday daughter, when you approach me, already stung, stained with insecurity. Begging..”Mom, will I be pretty? Will I be pretty?” I will wipe that question from your mouth like cheap lipstick and answer, “NO.” “The word ‘pretty’ is unworthy of everything you will be and no child of mine will be contained in five letters. You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing, but you will never be merely pretty.”
katie makkai

Build Anyway

If you are kind people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway.
- Mother Teresa

“So many roads, so many detours.
So many choices, so many mistakes.
As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost.
When that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda buckle up, and just keep going.
As we speed along this endless road to the destination called ”Who We Hope To Be”, I can’t help but whine, are we there yet?”

- Carrie, Sex and the City

What is love?

“I don’t pretend to know what love is for everyone, but I can tell you what it is for me; love is knowing all about someone, and still wanting to be with them more than any other person, love is trusting them enough to tell them everything about yourself, including the things you might be ashamed of, love is feeling comfortable and safe with someone, but still getting weak knees when they walk into the room and smile at you.”

Let it Snow

I used to stare up at the sky trying to see where the snowflakes were born. I could do it for hours. Well, minutes. But it was always the waiting that was the most fun.

"I've Learned..."

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
