“If a tree fell in the forest, and you were the only one there to hear it, if its fall to the ground didn’t make a sound, would you panic in fear that you didn’t exist or would you bask in the bliss of your nothingness.”—Andrea Gibson
I think there’s something wrong with me, I just keep wishing weekends didn’t exist. It never fails, week after week I do not want the weekend to come. Sundays are the worst days of my life, it is always too quiet, no one is working, nothing is moving. My mind is too loud.
“You meet new people, become friends, and you eventually become close. You become a group who hangs out on a daily basis. Relationships and feelings form. You have fights and arguments among each other. Break ups happen, friendships are lost, and groups are fallen apart. And you become strangers slowly. But at the end of the day, deep down inside, you miss everything you had with the people you lost.”—Kristina Bellantes
“I realized these were all the snapshots which our children would look at someday with wonder, thinking their parents had lived smooth, well-ordered lives and got up in the morning to walk proudly on the sidewalks of life, never dreaming the raggedy madness and riot of our actual lives, our actual night, the hell of it, the senseless emptiness.”—Jack Kerouac
Beautiful things come out of horrible situations. I know for a fact. Out of sadness you get a new found wisdom on how the world can look with a haze of gray clouds, how people can be senseless, how you can see the whole universe in a whole new way. And that may be hard to handle, hard to cope, hard to accept, but it is so damn beautiful if you really take the chance to realize. Out of anger, you can feel your heart beat race, with every beat it is shaking your whole being and not only the heavy steps you take. It is when you, your whole self and some power is telling you that you are alive. And that is amazing in every angle. Out of anything there is something in there that makes it incredible. Something that makes it shine. Whatever you feel is potent and it is such a blessing to be able to feel what you feel. You just have to think about it.
This type of thinking is what helps me get through certain situations.
I would not be the person I am today without taking the things that have come my way and thinking of how that event affected me and how I want to grow from it, not wallow in it.
That does not mean that I do not have those days, where you know, you crumble down from the inside and cannot see the light anymore, or so you think. Until someone lovely whom you know well and knows where you’re from and where you are going, lends an ear to listen to and a heart filled with compassion to help you along your way on your enlightening journey.
