“Life comes with no guarantees, no time outs, no second chances, you just to live life to the fullest. Laugh as much as you can, spend all your money, tell someone what they mean to you, tell someone off, speak out, dare to be different, dance in the pouring rain, hold someone’s hand, comfort a friend, pig out, fall asleep watching the sun come up, stay up late and smile ‘til your face hurts. Don’t be afraid to take chances or fall in love, and most of all live in the moment because when you look back someday, knowing you have no regrets it’s going to be what makes you smile.”—(via itookadeepbreath, poeticheartache)
When we say things like “people don’t change” it’s only because we have troubles facing the truth and the fact that nothing ever rarely remains the same. It scares a lot of people. Change, no matter how much we try to fight against it, it’ll always win. It’s the way people try not to change that’s unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing that everything in this lifetime is permanent when we know deep down that nothing lasts forever. Change is constant. How we experience change that’s up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
“Under the cover of darkness, people do things they’d never do under the harsh glare of day. Decisions feel wiser, people feel bolder. But when the sun rises, you have to take responsibility for what you did in the dark and face yourself under the cold, harsh light of day.”—
“Little pieces of you get chipped away by another person, and you shave little pieces of yourself away so that you’ll fit together, then one day you look up and you don’t even know who you are.”—Grey’s Anatomy (via itookadeepbreath)
