Cheeky face poking out from under the coffee table, tempting me not to study. #husky #puppy #dogs #pets #study #exams #swotvac #university
I’ve been away for a few months, and I’ll probably be away for a few more. Between studying day and night for uni and spending as much of my free time as I can with my boyfriend, it’s been hard finding time for Tumblr. I’m sorry for the neglect, but I can promise you that I will be back. Until then, laugh a little more each day, spend the time to get to know someone who you never thought you could be friends with, give something without expecting anything in return and give yourself the chance to be happy. Because you deserve it.
Live for something. Live for yourself. Don’t let people who haven’t heard your story tell you what you can and can’t do. Fall in love. Fall out of love. Fall in and out of love over and over until you know for yourself what it truly is to love someone. Question things. Tell people how your really feel. If something upsets you, move it. If something is keeping you from being happy, change it. Let go of everything that has been holding you down and live your life to its full potential. One day, you will look back on the things you have and haven’t done. Don’t let yourself regret the choices you made.
Take a step back and look at yourself. You’re human. You’re beautiful. You can be anything and everything that you want to be. Don’t hate because your heart got broken, your parents split up, your best friend betrayed you, someone you barely know teased you. Don’t concern yourself with things you can’t control. Cry if you have to and let go when it’s time. Don’t hold onto the painful memories just because you’re afraid to forget. Some things aren’t worth remembering, don’t let them take up room that was meant for the things that are.
Uncharted - Sara Bareilles
No words. My tears won’t make any room for more, and it don’t hurt like anything I’ve ever felt before. This is no broken heart, no familiar scars, this territory goes uncharted.
Compare where you are to where you want to be, and you’ll get nowhere. So don’t ask me how to get started. It’s all uncharted.
People don’t write sonnets about being compatible with one another, or novels about sharing life goals and stimulating conversations. The greatest loves are the passionate ones, the ones that are never easy, the ones that are at the brink of falling apart with every heartbeat. But what makes them so great is that they never let anything get the better of them. Because their love for one another is greater than any fight, any argument. And with each blow that tries to break them, they hold on tighter than before.
You only live once. But if you live right, if you laugh like nothing else matters, if you love with all your heart, if your friends are the people you’d do anything for, if every moment is full of feelings that you’ll never forget, then once is more than enough.
This is the part where you find out who you are. And these are the friends who were with you from the start.
You won’t recall every memory. You won’t remember every face. Something that might seem so important to you now will be forgotten sooner than you think. And it’s a shame, because there are so many moments in life that make you smile, so many moments that take your breath away, so many moments worth remembering for the times when happiness seems hard to come by. Memories may be fleeting, but photographs capture a moment in time. And though the people and places may change, the photograph will always carry with it the feelings you felt and the beauty you shared.
Sometimes, something so simple can remind you of something so incredible. A song you once heard, a view you once saw, a movie, a book, a joke someone once said. For me, a single photo can take me back in time. Bring me back to the memories that I’d never thought I’d feel again. Remind me of the friends that have never left my side. Remind me of the days where nothing could keep us from doing the things that made us laugh.
