"I love you" means that I accept you for the person you are, and that I do not wish to change you into someone else. It means that I will love you andstand by you even through the worst of times. It means loving you even when you're in a bad mood, or too tired to do the things I want to do. It means loving you when you're down, not just when you're fun to be with. "I love you" means that I know your deepest secrets and do not judge you for them, asking in return that you do not judge me for mine. It means that I care enough to fight for what we have and that I love you enough not tolet go. It means thinking of you, dreaming of you, wanting and needing you constantly, and hoping you feel the same way for me.
I thought the world had lost it's sway. It was so hard sometimes. Then, I fell in love with you. Then, came you, and you took that away. It's not so difficult; the world is not so difficult. You take away the old, show me the new. And I feel like I can fly when I stand next to you.
You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.
Honey, love isn't a feeling. It's an action. Love isn't staring at the neighbourhood boys playing basketball, or flirting with the one you think is thecutest. Love is saying it. Just flat out saying it. 'I love you.' The action of telling someone and caring about someone so much that you would give anything to be with them for the rest of your life. See that old man and woman on the benchover there? Darling, that's love. When you can stand each other when you're both that age, that's love.
Everyone deserves someone who'll make them look forward to tomorrow.
Amazing, unbelievably good things
happen when you follow your gut,
your truth, your passion, your heart.
Happiness cannot be traveled to, owned, earned, worn or consumed. Happiness is the spiritual experience of living every minute with love, grace and gratitude.
- Denis Waitley
I feel like people get lost when they think of happiness as a destination. We’re always thinking that someday we’ll be happy. You know, we’ll get that car or that job or that person in our lives that fixes everything. But happiness is a mood and a condition, it’s not a destination. It’s like being tired or hungry; it’s not permanent, it comes and goes, and that’s okay. And I feel like if people thought of it that way, they’d find happiness a lot more often.
Love is putting yourself out there, making yourself vulnerable and hoping you don’t get dropped on your ass. But its so worth it because that guaranteed happiness and deep connection with one person is a feeling no one could replace.
What if you knew beyond a doubt what was going to happen tomorrow? Sure, I know it's crazy, but what if you did? Whether you'd be rich or poor; a hero or a loser; lucky in love, unlucky in life. What would you do? What if, by some magic, you found the power to really change things? People, events, maybe even your life? Would you even know where to start? Maybe you can't know until it happens.

You don't "think" you were in love. If you were in love with someone, truly in love, you will know without a single fucking doubt in your mind. Because it changes you. It consumes you. Trust me, if you were in love with someone, you couldn't dare question it.
Be soft. Do not let the world make you hard. Do not let the pain make you hate. Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
Sometimes it just takes patience for everything to happen. You won't get respect in just one day, you can't be in love with someone that you just met, and you won't be able to forgive yourself in a second. I've learned that helping people is good, but helping someone too much won't let them grow. You grow by making mistakes, getting hurt, learning from your regrets. Thoughts are there to help guide you to your decision. It's you that has to take that first step onto the pathway of happiness. It's your doing that makes you who you are. Don't assume, get your facts straight; that's what messes a lot of people up. There's always the true story and reasoning behind everything. We are all different, but have one thing in common; we all want happiness. It's like we're all trying to fight for it, trying to get what we want and it makes us forget the whole reason why we wanted it in the first place. Nobody said life was going to be easy. Life is what you make of it. Change for the better, don't change for someone else, change for yourself. Don't be selfish. Don't limit yourself from doing things just because you don't think you can make it through. Remember, time isn't going to wait for you, so make the best of it.
Do you ever just sit there and wonder why he chose you? Do you ever stop and think that it was just to good to be true? Does it ever seem like your afraid to lose him, because without him your whole life will be ruined. That, that right there is how you know it's real.
I was gonna give you a dirty look, but it seems you already have one.
Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful. [albert schweitzer]
people are unreasonable, illogical and self-centered. love them anyway. if you do good, people will accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives. do good anyway. if you are successful, you will win false friends and true enemies. succeed anyway. the good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow. do good anyway. honesty and frankness make you vulnerable. be honest and frank anyway. the biggest person with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest person with the smallest mind. think big anyway. what you spend years building may be destroyed overnight. build anyway. people really need help but may attack if you help them. help people anyway. give the world the best you have and you might get kicked in the teeth. give the world the best you have anyway.
Forget what hurt you in the past, but never forget what it taught you.
When you really love someone, those things that you never
did or never liked, you'll end up doing or liking them just
because of that person.
One of the most amazing things in the world is having someone
who falls in love with you whom you thought you never had a chance with.
Everyone comes with baggage from previous
relationships. If you’re lucky though, you’ll find someone who's willing
to love you enough to stand there & help you unpack.
